Market to Students and more!

Augsburg Dorm Ice Cream Social

WHEN: This Sunday (September 4th)

WHAT: Augsburg’s Department of Residence Life is hosting an Ice cream social for over 300 new students.  Local businesses are welcome to set-up a booth or table to advertise, promote their business, give away samples, hand out brochures, distribute coupons, display event schedules, etc. Interested?

Fall Scavenger Hunt

WHEN: Early October

WHAT: The WBBA, in collaboration with the Stadium Village and Prospect Park neighborhoods, is planning a student scavenger hunt that will bring university students out to local businesses to compete for a prize (and possibly get some deals or giveaways along the way).  Students will receive a

scavenger hunt booklet that contains pictures of items they need to locate.  Hunters that locate a qualifying number of entries will be entered to win a prize.  We will work with you to take a picture related to your business, train you and your staff to ‘stamp’ the booklets when students find you, and add in any deals or coupons you might want to offer.  If you are interested, email Adrienne or give her a ring at 612-518-8156.
