The athletics at Augustana are great! I am on the Women's Volleyball team at Augustana and I love being a part of the athletic program. The team itself is very close knit and supportive of each other. Not only are teams supportive within their respective sports, but they are also supportive to other sports teams. The wrestling team would dress up in crazy outfits for every single one of our home games. And the volleyball team reciprocated the support and attended many of their home meets. Augustana also has an amazing Men's Basketball team. This team brings the whole school together for their games. The gym is packed on home games to see the basketball team show their skills. Overall Augustana takes sports very seriously, through the support within a team to the support the entire school and community can bring to an individual.

Augstana's athletic program is great! The school really works hard to emphasize the importance of being physically active. A graduation requirement from what I've heard is that you need two sports credits by the end of your four years. This could include varsity sports, intramural, club teams, etc. Because a large portion of the student body is involved in sports of some kind, the athletic facilities are easily available for varsity athletes as well as the average student. Specific sports teams get more fans than others, but that really has the most to do with how well the team has done in the most recent competitions. I think the best thing about the athletic department is how helpful the trainers are. I recently visited the physical trainer for the track and field team and he was able to pay attention to my potential injury within a few minutes I got there. Even though he had appointments, I didn't need one because he was on top of everything he had to do. I really appreciated it. It was a different level of attention than what I've experienced in high school.

It really is great and I feel like I'm at a school that I belong. The crowd is very friendly and you can always get involved. The transition from high school to college is a big one and you have to understand that the work load and commitment is going to be very different. If you understand this I think anybody would be very successful at Augustana. I believe I am happier at school than I have been for a very long time. Something that makes Augustana unique is the amount that the student body really cares about the rest of the student body and experiencing/exploring other cultures. I think this is really important and special of us, especially during a time of such great religious tension around the world, understanding each other is the first step to a more peaceful world. My favorite experience would have to be the welcome experience that Augustana provides to it's transfer students and first-years. We went on a boat tour along the Mississippi and it was just wonderful. I also participated in the introductory, MCO (multi-cultural student organization) in the beginning of the year and it made my transition from high school to college much more comfortable. I would choose my school all over again for the reason that it has completely changed my life and never ceases to motivate me to work towards what I am truly passionate about. I love Augie!
