Welcome to the Augsburg Day Student Government website! We aim to further the educational goals and general welfare of the College Community. Student government will support and advocate for student concerns, needs, and activities. We will serve as the primary student voice and liaison between students and the administration, faculty, and staff of Augsburg College.
Charleston Shooting– Sending our Condolences
On behalf of the President, VP and the entire Executive Board of Augsburg Day Student Government, we would like to send our condolences to the families of the victims of the vicious hate crime that has been committed in Charleston S.C. and that our prayers are with the community. We find such acts like this to be completely against the fabric of society, justice and harmony, we stand in solidarity with communities suffering from oppression of all forms. We will not let the actions of a lone individual deter our spirit, will, and fight for the common good, justice and equality here in the Augsburg community, in America and worldwide. We condemn such acts of homegrown terrorism and the killing of innocent lives by anybody no matter what their identity. The victims of this horrific tragedy will never be forgotten and may they Rest in Power.
