The Blue & Gold Gala
The Blue and Gold Gala is a signature homecoming event at Augustana where the accomplishments of our alumni and generosity of our donors are featured and celebrated.
Join us on Friday, Oct. 18, at the downtown Holiday Inn City Centre where we will recognize five Alumni Achievement Award recipients and one Horizon Award winner. Augustana Fund President's Club donors will also be recognized for their leadership in making an annual gift of $1,000 or more to the Augustana Fund. Donors who have become a part of our Heritage Club in the past year by designating Augustana in their estate plans will be lifted up as well.
The program for the evening will feature a presentation by Assistant Professor of Biology, Dr. Jennifer Gubbels, who will share the story of her "Call to Research." Her talk will highlight the work our professors pursue each year in the sciences — work that will be enhanced by new facilities as Augustana undertakes the largest building project in its 153-year history with the construction of the Froiland Science Center in 2014.
Registration is closed for Viking Days 2013.
