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.

4 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Getting around is easy. The only horrible thing is the terrible MN winters. And no matter what, you can't avoid that.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's quite good. We are so close to downtown and the U of M TC there are just stores everywhere. It's wonderful.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I would say bad, but there are pretty much equal pros and cons.

The campus life is very social, it allows you to mingle all the time. Then again, there are all these Reslife regulations when it comes to winter, spring and summer breaks and stuff. Lots to say about Reslife.

2 College Freshman

Parking: During school hours it's obviously bad. We have a small campus so it's hard to fit all faculty and student cars on campus. When most faculty and commuting students go home though it's pretty available.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are many systems built to reduce drug and alcohol use, but obviously many students rebel. They are caught quick though so that's the catch. Students partying and using drugs is quite infrequent anyways.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We are D3 and many students are more into their books than their own sport teams. We do have plenty of school spirit though when it comes to wearing the clothes.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Haven't looked at it myself, but from what I've heard it's pretty average.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarships are very good. I wouldn't say the best though because the one I'm on limits me from other ones.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I would rate, but the very few Greek groups on campus are hardly visible. Their homes are off-campus and any work they do surely doesn't get to the greater campus community. Students have in the past joined Greek groups from our neighboring school, the U of M TC. This rating is not applicable as well.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Since we're only a quick walk to the light rail that takes you as far as the Target Center or the Mall of America the transportation that Augsburg is great. It' fairly easy to request a ride to and from the light rail. There's also the new light rail that will also be easy to access.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I've been to a big party on campus, but since we're right across the street from the University of Minnesota, I usually head over there for parties.

Campus Strictness: The Department of Public Safety (DPS) is fairly strict when it comes to drinking and drugs. If they catch you, not only do you have to pay a fine but you also have to attend a class. On the other hand, from a certain distance, they'll be able to give you a ride for free or pick you up.

Weather: Since I live on campus, the weather doesn't really affect me that much. Augsburg isn't the biggest college so it's fairly easy to get to your classes without having to walk much outside. There's the tunnel and skyway system that allows you to stay inside whether it's too cold, snowing or raining.
