Every fall, we host an Alumni Weekend to welcome our over 9,000 alumni back to Augustana. Whether you graduated from Camrose Lutheran College, Augustana University College, or the University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus, you will find something for you!

Host a class get-together to reconnect with old friends or reach out to a favourite professor! We already have several groups arranging get-togethers on the Weekend, such as the Classes of 1956, 1966, and our Golden Alumni. We are celebrating 25 years of the Student Chaplaincy program, and alumni parents of current students can re-unite with their children on campus.

Call the Alumni Office at 780-679-1626 or email augalum@ualberta.ca to connect with one of these groups or to talk about what you have planned.

Oktoberfest: Wittenberg comes to Augustana
In preparation for the 500th anniversary of the Reformation – and as a definitive answer to the long pondered question “Where is that statue of Luther going in such a hurry?” – Augustana Chaplaincy will host Oktoberfest on Alumni Weekend. On offer will be a traditional German meal featuring local sausage, sauerkraut, salads, and homemade tortes. Our guests will have the opportunity to accompany the meal with a sampling of local craft beers and other beverages. To top off the evening, the Alumni Polka Band promises to get your toes tapping.
Tickets: $50.00
