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

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.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Sioux Falls is a great city, a very homey feel. There are a lot of restaurants and shops at reasonable prices, and big name store right in the city. Only thing is nothing is within walking distance of the college, we are located in a residential area so not having a car has it's challenges.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Sioux Falls is a great city. There is enough to keep you entertained but not so much that it is overwhelming. It never takes longer than 20 minutes to get from one location to the next but at the same time the city is not extremely small. There is a big mall, several movie theaters, and an arena with a recreation center on the way. Sioux Falls is growing quickly but it is still a very safe place and a great place to raise children.
