Augsburg College is probably one of the most diverse institutions I will ever attend in my life. I learned so much about the culture of my friends and the culture of Minneapolis itself. At Augsburg, there is a good concentration of both white Minnesotans/Wisconsinites and Somalian Americans. It was interesting to see the dynamic between these different groups (being an outsider of sorts). I learned a lot about Islam and Somali culture–it was an experience I did not take for granted. Augsburg is also very LGBTQIA+ friendly and expressed support for their Black students in a time of racial tension and police brutality. Even though Augsburg wasn't the choice for me in all other respects, this was one huge plus.

The academic rigor of Augsburg varies from program to program. I feel as if I only knew people interested in music therapy, physical therapy/something with athletics, or biology/chemistry. The workload for my first year was manageable, being as it was mostly review. The registration process is clear-cut once someone explains it to you. Within Augsburg itself, there are not a lot of study abroad options. However, they do partner with tons of other programs that visit Augsburg College every once in a while.

Varsity sports are important at our school, but there seems to be a big dichotomy between athletes and non-athletes. Since I am friends with both athletes and non-athletes, I notice it more often. As my friends like to say, "Augsburg has either athletes or nerds". Games are sparsely attended, with the exception of soccer, wrestling, and sometimes basketball. Most games are attended by parents–this may feel more like a high school than a college. However, for DIII athletics, soccer has been successful as well as wrestling, who are 12-time National Champions. Otherwise, average athletes can play multiple sports. If you are looking for a large sports scene, you may want to choose a bigger public school.
