Semester Shutdown is a beloved campus tradition at Augustana. The Fall Semester Shutdown is a collaborative event coordinated through the office of Student Engagement that includes a wide variety of student organizations and university offices. The Spring Semester Shutdown is coordinated by the new UBG programming board as their first-ever event. Both semesters include a Moonlight Breakfast followed by Bingo in the Dining Hall.
