4 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid takes quite a long time to get through. However, I do receive some aid for my education in the end.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There is a lot of crime by my school. Many students are either hurt, threatened, or harassed by locals or other students. The campus safety does not even do any type of investigation. They only send out emails giving us reminders on what we are not supposed to do (such as leave a dorm door unlocked). One situation, there was some students who had their room broken into within a 20 minute time frame when no one was in their dorm. A gaming system was taken and a couple of laptops were stolen. All campus security did was send out an email saying to not leave your doors unlocked. But their door was locked. There was no further investigation done by campus security. THis goes for a lot of crimes around here.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: I think it depends on who you ask, this is also subjective but i find very stimulating the ethnic diversity. They are even possibility to have event related to a culture, and taste the food, and listen to speakers.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have greek life

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I think the second line of questioning is irrelevant. First of all, it is very subjective and highly selective ( girls on campus ? really ?) If knowing if the girls are attractive is determinant in going to a school, i think you should have never left high school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is very nice to be in small classes we can really get a direct contact with the professor, and a better understanding of things if they become confusing. There is a lot of different courses to choose from. It's very wide. As an art major , i am just exploring from theater art, make up for the scene , to ceramics and graphic design and a lot more. I am very satisfied with all go the classes that i have taken so far. Other students from others majors seem fulfilled as well. We all feel very well challenged.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From what i have seen from the alumnus in the art department, they all seem to be doing well : as in they have jobs related to have they majored in and in different part of the country. Some are in famous museums, some created their brand, one works with a famous potterist and so on. This school as a good visibility also because we get to have the office of the Nobel Peace Prize Forum. The Dalai Lama even came this year.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: DPS is good idea and it's good to have them around, they keep us posted on any robbery or violence in and around the school, they can give us rides to some places, be around if we call them in case of an emergency. But they are not always as helpful and nice and just plain polite and agreeable as they should be.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid , i did get a nice scholarship though.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Since the option doesn't exist i want to say : It's good.

Downtown is a very vibrant and endless choice of eating but Hennepin is very nice also and is worth stopping at for sure. The only thing would be transportation but there are a lot of tasty different options like Afro deli right down the campus, which is colorful and very good. Plus it's healthy there is a lot to choose from.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It is nice to have a walk on the campus of University of Minnesota especially during the spring time. The Mall of America and Target right next door makes shopping a little too easy. I would say that living in Minneapolis is big plus but you still have to be careful around certain hours. Big cities also imply that we hear of criminal activity more. Knowing that, you avoid going to certain places at certain hours , by yourself .

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus, the rooms are comfy and spacious enough for two roommates for exemple. We don't overlap and we can have enough privacy. I like that each floor have a study room. And for the Superbowl for exemple, the dorm ordered pizzas and made it an event in the common room which reunited quite a few people, which is a nice way to meet people form the building or even from the campus.

It was quite easy for me to choose the building, though i could have used more informations of the different options, and also it is quite expensive with a meal plan. But there is so much going on quite often and even in rough winter like we just had it still feels homy.

Health & Safety: From my international student, i appreciate DPS and how we can get a ride from them to certain locations. I regret the lack of a nurse, or any kind of medical assistance available right on campus which would be helpful without having to necessarily go to a clinic or a hospital.

DPS emails us regularly about the events that happen in and out of campus, to make us alert of the possible dangers but maybe more could be done.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Augsburg has amazing student diversity, in every area from race, religion, sexual orientation, hobbies, habits, and economic status. The diversity found at Augsburg is by far my favorite thing about Augsburg, you can find just about every variation of people right on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live off campus, but those who do venture off campus find that if you can find a location with available housing it can become a hassle to get your scholarships to communicate and/or agree to help pay for housing, get your on campus rent deposit back, and it can be extremely difficult to find your "dream home/apartment", most places nearby are places that you'll stay at because you found a good enough place near campus not so much that you really love to live there for a while. Once students graduate they move out of the apartments pretty quick.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Minneapolis is a constantly evolving area, Minneapolis has many attractions that are promoted throughout the college campus like an event at the Mall of America, and a great clinic (only a short light rail ride away), the Mill city Museum, and a ton of cultural and different lifestyle (that target different ethnic eaters, vegetarians, out of state and southern eaters, and just average every day foods) restaurants close to the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got a few great scholarships from Augsburg the only thing holding them back from getting a five star rating from me is the complete hassle is it to talk with the financial aid center. They have some facility there that known exactly what's going on and how to help you handle your financial situation, but there are even more that have no idea what's really going on. They more or less just look at the computer screen and try to read you things off the screen, which is something you can do on your own at home, but for more in depth help Augsburg always has more experienced staff around to help.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Augsburg doesn't have much of a connection with any Greek Life or sorority areas on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Augsburg has a great library and facility team that really know what they are doing and are willing to accommodate students if needed, the downfall of Augsburg though would be that they don't have a whole lot of outside student space, and they have a lot of ideas for green space, but they have no obvious progress towards making the campus more environmentally friendly.

College Sophomore

Majors: I am currently a writing major with my main area of focus centered towards being a freelance writer. a I haven't had an internship yet, but I'd like to have one at a animal shelter, a rescue center, a writing company, or on a study abroad trip with a language and cultural immure program because these are some of the topics I'm most interested in. My only concerns with finding an internship would be that I'm not sure what area I want to go in. I want to do a study abroad internship, as well as with various animal rescues shelter, but I also have a full time job, which would make juggling all these things extremely difficult. Throughout my life I have volunteered with many of the places that I want to one day work at except for the study abroad trip so that would be the internship that I would be most interested in while in college, but I don't know how I can do a trip when I have a job to attend to.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't yet done a internship, but if I were to do a study abroad trip this year my only advice would be the advice that's been passed down to me through others who have already been down this road. My advice is make sure you are fully prepared for the new cultural you'll be walking into, keep an open mind, try new things, and don't go to any program that will set your graduations plan back, only do trip that will help you accelerate in life.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Many bars for 21 plus, many clubs for 18 plus, and as for partying, it's quite quiet on campus, but pretty wild for people who live off campus but close by.

Computers: Although the wifi can get tricky at times, there's nothing to complain about when it comes to computers and laptops. They are highly available.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Not too bad. It's not the end of the world and students don't complain too much about the regulations and such.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: We are extremely diverse. Obviously there is still a majority, but our diversity is a whole lot better than many other institutions. I was sitting in class and looked around and noticed all the different people of color, it was almost an exact mix. Also, when getting a good pick-up game of football going, it's great to see all the different faces on the field because it's so diverse.
