Scholarships: Augustana will give a lot of money to financially needing and scholastically achieving students. However, like a lot of kids at this campus who are neither, you don't really get all too much.

College Freshman

Transportation: See, as a really small, really compact school, Augustana doesn't really have the need for a great transportation system. Rather, they have a small service that runs to drive kids on crutches and drives around late at night to bring kids home safe to their dorms on weekends.

Athletics: It really depends sport to sport, but it's not a great sports place. It's weird that this is a school that an NFL legend quarterback attended (Kenny Anderson of Bengal fame), but still the football stadium is a third full on game days and the athletic facilities are pretty sub par. For the athlete, it's a great experience, especially for cross country and track runners, where they are coached by a legend in Coach Paul Olsen, and are invited to prestigious events due to the teams' yearly success. It's mainly a "Hooray! I get to play a college sport!" sports atmosphere where the teams aren't very good, aren't very supported, but the athlete gets a great opportunity.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Pretty much your standard Illinois weather full of extreme heat, extreme cold, and a lot of rain and snow. I've lived in this sort of weather for 18 years, so it doesn't really effect me which way or the other.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Well, you pretty much have a few dive bars, a McDonald's, a Taco Bell, a Wendy's, a KFC, and a few pizza places here and there. But every place has a student discount!

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: A very boring, lackluster river town with not a lot too do and without a pretty view. Rock Island does not really have that small town charm, but feels like another boring suburb. People are very nice to students, but the college is not exactly located in the best part of town. It's not an awful place, but very boring and middle of nowhere-ish.
