Dear alumni and friends,

The leaves on campus are in their glory this week just in time to celebrate Homecoming 2011.

As we honor our reunion classes of 1966, 1971, 1976, 1981, 1986, 1991, 1996, 2001, 2006 we also welcome all alumni to "light it up" on Saturday evening. We will watch as Old Main is lit for the first time. Don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime ceremony. Seats at the lighting ceremony and dinner are limited. Register today!

We look forward to welcoming all of our alumni home, to Augustana College.

Looking for job openings? See Augie Hub

Augustana students and alumni can now access Augie Hub, a powerful online system that allows you to search for openings, upload and submit resumes to employers, and browse employer profiles. If you're looking for jobs nationwide, another great tool is the built-in Job Search Engine, which plugs you into a national and international job database.

Alumni are invited to register for an account on Augie Hub. The college also would like to get information about jobs you know about. You can start an employer account and post jobs for free. For details or assistance, email Karen Eilers, director of career development.
