4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are some thefts, but any reported incident or even suspicious activity is sent out to all the students to keep everyone informed. There are the blue light emergency stands at random places on campus, and Public Safety is always patrolling and quickly available.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses have been wonderful. They are the perfect amount of challenging, but not too much to where you are completely stressed. The professors are always available to help and are only an email away.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being a small liberal arts college, there are many opportunities that stem from this. CORE knows how to get you connected with jobs and prospective internships, and make sure you know what the next step is on your part.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Swanson, and it is the best residence hall to live in. A bathroom shared by only 4 people, and the janitors come to clean it every week. Co-ed floors in Swanson too because there is no communal bathrooms. The rooms are spacious, and the air conditioning is an added bonus. With the magnetic door holders, it is easy to leave your door open and meet the others on your floor. Overall, the best part of college has been my residence hall and the people I have met from it.

Greek Life: If you are into Greek life, then this is a great place to be. If not, you will be fine too, but Greek life truly comes out in the spring, especially with the five weeks of pledging that occurs. In my own opinion, Greek life changes people, but then again, maybe their true selves are just coming out. It gets aggravating at times in the spring when all of your friends suddenly disappear to go to sorority stuff.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: There is nothing like the atmosphere at an Augustana basketball game. The Carver Crazies earned their name! The basketball team is the most popular here on campus, and rightfully so. It felt like the entire school showed up to their games!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Augustana is extremely friendly and there is always something for you to do on campus whether it is a movie night hosted by OSL, a poetry slam in the brew, or a basketball game at the Carver Center. The campus is beautiful, and the atmosphere is perfect if you're looking for a small school with plenty of interesting and cool people to surround yourself with. There are many different classes that you can take from typical ones like Chemistry or Psychology to The Art of Listening or Dinosaurs and Extinction. It is a great school!

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It's the best. Really. People are safe and you can get help when you need it.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public safety circles campus and ACES is available for transport at night.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are helpful and easy to talk to. Most grade fairly and if you have a problem or question, you can go into office hours.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: CORE is great! It is easily accessible and very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing varies to a great degree, but they are making updates.

Greek Life: The greek groups are great, and you aren't treated differently if you are non-Greek.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The basketball team is the main focus, but they're great so it's fine.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Augustana is great! The classes are interesting, well-planned, and fair in grading.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have never learned more in my entire life than I have these past three years, I feel so smart!!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depends, there is a lot of variance

5 College Junior

Greek Life: It's different than anywhere else in that the sororities are big, but you know every single girl within the group and ACTUALLY have a sisterly bond. Best decision I have made was joining a sorority.

Athletics: Basketball is the only team that matters and trust me, that's OK

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Augustana. For all the not-so-great profs, their are absolutely outstanding ones that make up for it. I have felt myself grow in so many ways aside from educationally. Never pictured myself at a small school, but now I can't picture myself anywhere else.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I think the safety on campus is great, I do feel safe to walk alone back to my room if I had to at night. But the security could use some work. I am regularly receiving emails about stolen items taken from one of the workout facilities on campus. I constantly see public safety cars driving through campus, but I think some areas should be attended better. In Pepsico, maybe they could always have a desk worker to help reduce thieves from snooping through others belongings. I personally feel safe on campus, but I do not feel safe enough to leave my belongings unattended in certain areas.

Overall Experience: My experience with courses and professors at Augustana has been great! The courses are an intense amount of work that leave me proud off what I have accomplished in the end. The professors are very passionate about what they do and make the students feel comfortable enough to come to their office for extra help. The classes sizes are at a good level which allow for student to teacher bonds to form. I think the liberal arts style that Augustana requires its students to take is very intelligent and helps to shape students into better individuals. The courses offered allow students to explore multiple creative fields and help figure out how to be successful in college and in the real world.

Overall Experience: The quality of the career center on campus is great. CORE does a wonderful job at aiding students in their journey to build their careers. CORE helps students find internships and build connections while students are in their undergrad years. CORE also helps students to secure successful jobs before they even graduate which is a very helpful tool. Augustana has one of the best programs that I have seen to help students become graduates with a substantial education and many fruitful experiences which qualify them for the real world.

Campus Housing: I am currently a sophomore living in the dorms, and it is a great social environment to transition from living at home to living on your own. Augustana has a great system to help ease that transition. Freshman and Sophomores live in dorms, then Juniors live in TLA's which are basically apartments. Then Seniors have to find their own housing. The TLA's are awesome in my eyes, I like how there are individual rooms for each person living there and I like how it allows students to not have a meal plan and just provide their own food. I currently live in Erickson Hall and it is the furthest hall from campus which is a little annoying. Although I do not mind the exercise, the journey to class is torturous during snow storms. One of the nicest buildings on campus for housing is the Swanson Commons, half of the building is suite style living for freshman and the other half are TLAs. This building is beautiful and makes you feel like you are at home. Overall, the housing on campus create a great social atmosphere. The cost is a little steep in my opinion for the quality of sophomore and freshman dorms.

Greek Life: I just rushed to enter into Greek Life in a few weeks. I am excited for all the opportunities and friendships it will bring to me. I feel as though Greek life affects the social atmosphere of campus by bringing people closer together and creating a bigger sense of community. Greek students are viewed like any other student at Augustana, they are just like people who are part of a club or a sport. There is no king of special Greek housing available around campus.
