A Fond Farewell


This year, we say good-bye to two of our C&M student workers, Daisy Hoang and DJ (David) Musolf. Daisy is graduating with a degree in business and is going to ISU for a master’s in communication. DJ is graduating with a degree in graphic design and will be on the job hunt after his summer employment. Thank you for all you have done for our office over the past few years; you will be greatly missed!

Introducing Augie CORE

Augie CORE in the Olin Center will be the home for Career planning, experiential learning Opportunities, undergraduate Research and Exploration beyond the borders of our campus. We tested three name options with our graduates of the last 13 years. You’ll probably note a post-survey change to the word behind the “E” in CORE. Here is how the voting broke down:

An Augustana “A” for Katie Hanson


We visited assistant professor and Communiversity board chair, Katie Hanson last week to give her an Augie “A.” Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Communiversity courses are offered each Sunday in February, and several Augie professors are teaching courses again this year, including:

  • Reel Theology-Dr. Jason Mahn
  • Contemporary Africa: Understandings and Misunderstandings-Dr. Todd Cleveland
  • Political Rhetoric 101: Study for the Midterms!-Dr. Stephen Klien
  • Women and/in Islam-Dr. Umme Al-wazedi

ITS partners go above and beyond

Our office recently presented Scott Dean and Markus Harris, from the ITS department, an official Augie “A” to honor and appreciate the extra effort they have given to install new phones and ensure current phones will ring in an emergency situation. The work of Dean and Harris supports the campus emergency communication plan.
