Join us Oct. 9-11 for Homecoming 2020!


Rain moved Oktoberfest indoors in 2017, but that didn't dampen the spirits of our alumni.

Planned activities (tentative)

Alumni are invited to take a self-guided tour of campus and enjoy the fall colors along the Swanie Slough path. Campus photographers will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to take family photos. 

Enjoy a picnic lunch on the Quad and Vikings football at Lindberg Stadium.

After the football game, join us for brats, beer and live music by Minus Six at Oktoberfest on campus. 

Members of the Class of 2020 are invited to gather for food and drinks at the River House Historic Square (outdoor event).

All class reunions will be moved to spring of 2021. No date has been set yet.

OZO's 100th reunion may be moved to Homecoming 2021. Members have been asked to fill out a survey to determine interest in celebrating in 2021 instead.

Please note: Augustana will celebrate and honor our newest graduates, the Class of 2020, during Homecoming 2020.
