5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Sioux Falls is great, always something to do and great places to study around town

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I love Sioux Falls. It has friendly people and is nicely spread out but, still relatively close in proximity.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: I am in a pretty small town. There is a mall and some other things to do, but I still find myself looking for things to do. Nightlife isn't very great here, mostly because I am not old enough to go out to bars or clubs and there isn't a lot of other places open at night.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The staff are really friendly and when you stop in and ask a teacher something, they take the time to talk to you. I felt very welcomed and could feel a community atmosphere

5 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Sioux Falls is a great city for Augustana to be located in. There are several attractions located here, such as the waterfalls at Falls Park, the Japanese Garden attraction, and the Washington Pavilion downtown has many exhibits and shows that bring people from all over to Sioux Falls.
Augustana has a big rivalry with University of Sioux Falls, which is located only a block away from our campus.
