Hamline at the State Fair

It is almost time for the Great Minnesota Get-Together. Hamline University will have a booth in the Education Building again this year, so be sure to stop by to say “Hi,” take selfies, and receive a giveaway (supplies are limited so come early).

Visitors will have a chance to talk with staff members, ask them questions, and share Hamline memories. Students and alumni also have the chance to receive a giveaway like a temporary tattoo, Post-it notepad, or a Hamline pen. In a photo area, you can take a picture with some props, and share why you love Hamline using #HamlinePride.

Students, staff, faculty, and alumni are encouraged to wear Hamline gear while enjoying the Great Minnesota Get-Together on Saturday, August 26 for Hamline Day at the Fair. The Piper will be at the booth to take pictures and reminisce with alumni.

The Hamline School of Education’s Center for Global Environmental Education (CGEE) will also be at the fair in the Eco Experience Building. For the twelfth year in a row, CGEE faculty and staff designed and coordinated the Eco-Arcade. The area provides free and interactive games like the Storm Drain Goalie air hockey table to encourage kids and adults alike to take the lead to protect Minnesota’s lakes and rivers.
