Hamline at the State Fair


If you’re going to the Minnesota State Fair this year, be sure to stop by the Hamline University booth in the education building for great giveaways and new ways to connect with students, faculty, staff, alumni, prospective students, and the public.

Hamline faculty, staff, and students will be there to answer questions, share Hamline memories, and help fairgoers stay cool with #HUonastick. The fans not only help beat the heat, but also include a list of fun facts about Hamline. Drawings for a limited supply of the ever-popular Hamline drawstring backpacks will happen each day at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 5 p.m.

Another new addition to Hamline's booth will be a live Twitter feed displaying #HUonastick tweets. Everyone is encouraged to tweet what they love about Hamline or their favorite Hamline memory using the hashtag.

Hamline at the Fair Day is on August 24 and to celebrate, our alumni can enjoy a number of perks. Alumni will receive an email with vouchers for free parking in Hamline campus lots, coupons for a drink at the Anderson Center Starbucks, and a discount on Hamline hats, t-shirts, and more. Alumni can also receive discounted State Fair tickets at the Anderson Center front desk if they’re wearing Hamline apparel. The Anderson Center is within walking distance of the fair and right on the bus route to the State Fair’s front gate.

In addition, the Hamline School of Education’s Center for Global Environmental Education will host the kids area in the Eco Experience Building. The area provides a fun way for kids to learn how they can make choices that benefit the environment such as preventing water pollution. There are interactive activities, like puzzles and drawings to entertain kids and parents alike.

Once again, Hamline will have a big presence at the fair so please stop by our booth to say ‘Hi’, grab an #HUonastick fan, and share your Hamline story.
