Hamline at the State Fair


When you're at the Minnesota State Fair this year be sure to stop by the Hamline University booth in the Education Building and Hamline's Center for Global Environmental Education booth in the EcoExperience Building for new ways to connect with students, faculty, staff, alumni, prospective students, and the public.

At our main booth in the Education Building, Hamline faculty, staff, and students will be there to answer questions and share Hamline memories. Everyone is encouraged to tweet what they love about Hamline or share their favorite Hamline memory using the hashtag #MakeYourMarkHU.

Hamline Day at the Fair is on Saturday, August 29 and to celebrate, Hamline alumni can enjoy a number of perks. Parking is free for Hamline alumni in all surface lots on campus (Campus Map). Lots will be open from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 29 only. “Alumni Parking” signs will be posted to indicate where to park. Alumni can also purchase special discounted State Fair tickets through Hamline. Tickets are $10, a discount of $3 per ticket. Tickets must be picked up on campus on Saturday, August 29 at the front desk of the Anderson Center. Tickets are valid for every day of the fair. 

In addition, Hamline's Center for Global Environmental Education will once again have a big presence at the EcoExperience Building. Visitors can learn more about protecting lakes and rivers at the storm drain photo booth, storm drain goalie air hockey table, interactive kiosks, and more. 

So don't forget to stop by and say 'Hi', pick up a free gift, and share your Hamline story at the great Minnesota get together.
