4 College Sophomore

Academics: professors are great and helpful, workload is about perfect

4 College Sophomore

Academics: professors are helpful and the registration process is quick

3 College Senior

Academics: The biology program at Augustana is major. A science center is actually being built right now that will update the whole facility and offer more area for faculty and independent student research. The curriculum is difficult, but contributes to the top notch students that are produced.

5 College Senior

Academics: Our professors get to know each student and I feel as if they actually care for our best interests. As a private school, we are required to be well rounded by taking additional courses that would normally not be under our direct course of study. I believe it helps open our eyes on different subjects but, also allows us to interact with other students who see things from a different point of view.

4 College Junior

Academics: The teachers here hold you up to a high standard, and do not let you "slack off" one bit. They know what you're capable of, and push you to achieve that.
