Augie Award

Augie Hartung

Augie Hartung

The university has created an award to recognize one person at CSUSB, biennially, who best emulates Augie Hartung. Augie was known for his caring spirit, unquenchable enthusiasm for assisting others, and warmth in thoughtfully reaching out to friends and strangers alike. The Augie Award (The Augie) was first introduced in 2006 and has become among the most coveted prizes the university offers. The Augie award is in the shape of a popsicle because Augie was well known for giving out free popsicles on hot summer days, just to show that he cared and to see people smile. Nominees should be Affirming, Understanding, Giving, Inspiring, and Exceptional.
