In my majors, I have fantastic professors lined up ready to teach me. I am actually excited to go to the classes that my majors require because the teachers seem like they care about me. A lot of them have actually tried to go watch student athletes play in home games! My workload, for the most part, can usually be scheduled around my athletics and as much as I know how important being a STUDENT-athlete is, many professors will give me a break if I have been too involved with my athletics.

Living in the heart of Minneapolis, there are always activities going on. Not to mention that across the street is the U of M. The Mall of America is a 15 minute light rail ride from campus and the Target center, Target field, and metrodome are all a 10 minute drive from Augsburg. The science museum (one of my favorite places) is only about a 10-15 minute drive from campus also. Safety on campus is really awesome. We have a department of public safety that does rides to places two blocks off campus, and they also have a few trained Police officers!

Perfect Location for Anything – Augsburg is on the edge of south Minneapolis and downtown right next to the U of M west bank. So It's got a lot of great things locally that are incredibly easy to get to. The lightrail is 4 blocks away and Dept of Public Safety will give you a ride there if you really don't want to walk. The lightreail runs all through south Minneapolis to the airports and Mall of America. The lightrail is actually expanding right now to go all the way to St. Paul too! So the light rail is a great option. Minneapolis has a great bus system too that is fairly reasonably priced and has lots of free days for sporting events, museums, etc. Also, since Minneapolis is a big city we have lots of taxis but they are rarely used by us students since they're the most expensive option. Finally, Augsburg has a lot os students who live close by off campus that commute. So cars are usually on campus. If you live on campus you definitely don't need a car unless you have a job that's far away. If you end up needing a ride somewhere it's super easy to find someone who has a car on campus to give you a ride.
