Celebrate a virtual Homecoming 2020!

To help manage COVID-19 on campus, the college will not host an in-person Homecoming in October. We will be hosting some fun virtual activities! (We plan to gather in person next spring, May 7-9, 2021.)

Until then, we bring the beautiful scenery of campus and some beloved stories to you on this virtual campus tour led by Kai Swanson '86.

Here’s what’s planned so far for October: 

Virtual Dome Dash 5K race will be run Sept. 14-Oct. 2. Register! Bobby Olson '10 is currently in the lead.

Sunday, Oct. 11

10 a.m. Retiring Campus Chaplain Richard Priggie '74 will preside over a special worship service. Tune in on the Augustana YouTube Channel.

4 p.m. Celebrate Pastor Priggie's decades of service to Augustana in a virtual send-off. Registration is required.

Thursday, Oct. 22

5 p.m. Our second Pandemic Perspectives conversation, with Mike Gapen '91 and Allyson Martinez '13 discussing the economy. Learn more and register.

Friday, Oct. 23

5 p.m. Beer tasting/conversation with Tim Faith ’11 and Dr. Dara Wegman-Geedey. Register.

Please mark your calendar for an in-person Spring Homecoming on May 7-9, 2021, when we will celebrate all that we love about Augustana and honor our reunion class years ending in 0s and 5s.
