Diversity: Augsburg prides itself on its diversity. The school is incredibly accepting and welcoming to any and all minorities and tries to involve everyone and make everyone feel at home with the campus and campus life. The acceptance ranges from special groups to certain scholarships available for race, religion, sexual orientation etc.. Overall, I would argue that this is one of Augsburg's strongest attributes.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's Minnesota. Cold in the winter, and hot in the summer.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: Across the Street from the University of Minnesota – If you want to party, cross the street. If not, stay on campus.

It's that easy. Augsburg does have sober dorms for those that want nothing to do with a drunk neighbor coming home at 2:30 am.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are many computer labs in almost all teaching halls. There are plenty in the library, and there are printers everywhere. I have never had a problem finding a place to log onto my network account and print something in my files.

The network can bog down if you are in a class using an on-network file, for example I am taking a class on MS Excel. We occasionally have to download a file at the same time.

Other than an instance like that, no worries!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Hard to Get Info – I know, from other students, that there is money out there that the school gives away but the school itself doesn't advertise it. It is one of those deals where we have to actively be searching for assistance.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Hop on-Board – Being a city school we have excellent transportation access. The Minneapolis LightRail system is only a few blocks away and can easily transport you to downtown or the Mall of America.

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drinking and Smoking – Personally, for myself, I see a large amount of students drinking and a fair amount of students smoking weed. Since we are a city school both alcohol and marijuana are easily available and it isn't uncommon to know someone you participates in either activity.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Diverse and Good – Many different majors which are all taught by excellent professors.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Drink and Party – Friday and Saturday nights are crazy nights here at Augsburg (at least for the Freshman class). Lots of drinking and partying, and smoking is big too on campus.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: New and Nice – The buildings on campus are very nice and many of them are new. During the winter our artificial turf stadium is covered by a dome which helps bring in extra money to the school. The work out gyms are also top notch.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Found the Love of My Life – I have loved attending Augsburg. I've made a few close friends, joined a club sport (Ultimate Frisbee), got welcomed but the LGBTQIA community (I am bisexual) and have had a lot of fun. But most of all I found the love of my life and my future wife. We spend lots of time together and I couldn't be happier.

College Freshman

Greek Life: No Greek – There is no greek life, but there is the option of joining one at the U of M if they allow non-students.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not to Shabby – The athletics at Augsburg College are where you would expect a small Division III campus. Mediocre. With one of the best wrestling programs in D3 in the country (11-Time National Champs) a Men's soccer team that always is competitive and a football team that was off to a roaring start, things aren't bleak in this department.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There isn't a lot of off campus housing in the area and most students choose to live on campus all four years. There are, however, relatively decent priced studio apartments if you can find a roommate.

4 College Freshman

Academics: All in All, Pretty Great – Augsburg has a nice range of majors and minors and many great professors who are willing to work one on one with students to help them succeed. There are a few teachers who make the experience a bit strained, but there will be on any campus.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Augsburg College is an extremely liberal and progressive campus. Known for its acceptance of the LGBTIA community as well as the immigrants that live near Augsburg, the school is a very welcoming and diverse place.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not a Party School, but Not My Scene – In my experience, there is quite a bit of drinking and smoking (Cigarettes and Pot). Every weekend someone on every floor stumbles back drunk or high.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very Safe – Campus security is very good. I have always felt safe at Augsburg. The Department of Public Safety will give you rides to and from the light rail station or Smiley's Clinic for free so you don't have to walk in the city at night. All of the dorm buildings are only accessible by a fob. Walking around just outside of campus, however, can feel a bit unsafe. I have not had any bad experiences, but we are told to only walk at night in big groups.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Big City, Small Town Charm – Augsburg has the small town charm of a private school but the location is great. The light rail is only a few blocks away that can get students to the Mall of America or the Target center and anything in between.

2 College Senior

Parking: Parking on campus is very limited. There is only one small visitor parking lot which is somewhat far from classes and many residence halls.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living on campus will make it easier for students to get involved with the Augsburg community, work on campus, and attend classes. However, the cost to live on campus is expensive and I would recommend living in an apartment near augsburg college instead if possible.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Good 'Ol MN Winter – BURR! MN is awesome in the summer, but come fall/winter it gets a little crazy. Fortunately for Augsburg students all buildings (excluding the gym) are accessible through tunnels and sky ways.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Quaint Little Campus – Augsburg has a teeny tiny campus it takes no longer than 5 minutes to walk anywhere on campus. Public transportation is awesome, I personally love taking the light rail!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Augsburg College is full of ethnic diversity. The students come from a variety of backgrounds. Coming from a small school in the suburbs it was fun to get to know people from different parts of Minnesota. A majority of the guys and girls are the typical blonde haired blue eyed Minnesotan!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Honors, Youth and Family Ministries, and Psychology – I love all the programs I am in. My professors from honors and youth and family ministries are all willing to help me succeed and are willing to help me through any difficulties that I may have in my life. They are really caring people. Honors definitely makes you think a lot more and dive into what you are studying. Youth and Family Ministries is really good about having you understand what you are getting into when you enter this major. I haven't been too involved with Psychology yet.
