3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Smart Choices – A few students get drinking tickets now and then, but I haven't seen a huge problem with it. Our dorm desk attendants are pretty lenient and only get in your face if your really obnoxious about it. Just be smart about it and try and avoid parties that look like they are going to get busted.

Athletics: Go Augie Go! Augie has many sports available, but we are not a division one school. Our basketball team is amazing and is doing very well this season, but that is about the only really great sport.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms Like the Norms – Augustana College has pretty average dorms. I am in the nicer ones with air conditioning, but most of them are older and just normal.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The biggest thing is that Augie is on the trimester schedule. I love it and would hate to see it change.

Parking: Limited lots and mostly parallel parking along streets.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly Fast Food – Most food places within walking distance are just fast food. If you don't have a car make sure you have money for delivery, or you make it to the restaurant before the lobby closes. If you don't have a car you a very limited.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Decent Food – The points system Augustana uses leaves many students out of points in the last few weeks of the term. The food is decent but there is not much variety. The C-stores and Brew are good.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs Aren't Common – The drug scene at Augustana is almost non-existent. There are a few people that do drugs, but it depends on the group of friends you have. Drinking is much more popular then doing drugs.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The students at Augustana are very good looking. A recent speaker described us as the best looking class in the nataion. The students can be viewed as typical American students.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus Safety – Campus security is very responsive. However there is a porblem with people in the community endangering the students Augustana Colleges expersses their disappointmen with the Rock Island Police Department. Augustana also keeps the students informed of safety issues theough emails.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Augie Athletes – Athletics are HUGE. It seems that most students participate in at least one. The fans are great too (especially for basketball). Basically, just overall satisfacion!

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I went to a highschool with about half of the students/facualty being white. At Augie, there is a majority of white; however, there is some racial diversity. Good diversity of religion. Great openness to all differences though!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Can't Wait to Move in! I don't live on the off-campus housing yet. It's usually for jrs and mostly seniors, but when hanging out at them, they are great! Can't wait to live in one; however, the prices are more expensive than regular dorms.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It'll Work Out in the End – Social life at Augustana is GREAT. You can walk by total starangers and they will smile at you (at least most of them) The students are smart and usually really involved in a variety of things. Of course there are gorgeous people on the campus! Breakdown of relationships: fr year: hook up, maybe one or two relationships/ soph year: about the same as fr year/ jr year: some serious relationships, then break up at the end of the year/ sr year: serious relationships, possibly marriages. It's all fun and works out in the end :)

Local Atmosphere: Augie Bubble – While on campus at Augustana, most students feel as if they are in an "Augie bubble." We don't know so much about the areas surrounding us. This has its advantages and of course disadvantages, but from what I can see from going off campus, the atmosphere is great. A smaller campus in the larger city areas is wonderful. The school is located close to different shopping areas, great food, and of course enteratainment. It's definetely easy to find a part time job while going to school!

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Average Dining – Augustana has only two dining halls. They are both okay. They have many options, but most of the food is only average. Each student has a meal plan which can be used for the dining halls or the snack bar, coffee shop, or buying food from the convenience stores. The only problem is keeping track of points.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Okay Computer Help – Computers are easily accessable at Augustana. We are also allowed free printing up to 2,500 pages each year. The only problem is the network speed and consistancey. The internet can be slow or stop working without notice and for no reason. Also, wireless access is a pain to get. ITS makes people jump through hoops to get wireless access.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial Aid at Augustana was plain and simple. Just by applying to the school I was able to apply for all the scholarships I was eligable for. I also got a large amount of money scholarship and financial aid wise from the school, which is very helpful because of the high tuition.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: The transportation for students to off-campus places is easy and free. There is medical transportation to and from clinics and hospitals that is very convenient and free. There is also a bus system that will take students to nearby stores which is also free. A shuttle is also available to the airport that the school pays for.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Well Rounded Campus – Augustana offers a curriculum that helps students to be well rounded. The students are required to take classes from every department of the college. Although this makes the workload heavier than other colleges, it makes every student well rounded and diverse.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The Augie Bubble – Augustana is a school full of activities. There is always something going on that the school provides that students can attend for free. Because of this abundant amount of activities students are extremely social and are outgoing. It is one of the easiest places friends are made. The teachers are very caring of the students and care about their wellfare. They are flexible but also strict when it comes to school work and expect the best from their students.

Campus Strictness: Things Are Intense – The school policies are inforced with extreme punishments usually ending in getting kicked out. Drinking tickets are often given out because there is no alcohol allowed on campus and if three are recieved then it is an automatic to get kicked out.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Frat Houses – These places are awesome. There are always people there and usually the basements are set up for night events so its not like a random house party. These places are packed with students of all ages, but the 21 and older crowd usually leave for the bars after 12am.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Long Commute to Campus – I live out in the country so the weather in the winter can get crazy. But if i ever have a problem i inform my professor that way i'm not "endangering" my life when the winter storms get bad. The condition of the parking lots can get rather annoying in the winter because of how slick it can get, and i have had some close calls when it came to falling on my face, but in any other season campus and the commute in are great.
