Augustana College was a very beautiful college. If there was anything I could change, I would've loved to see the dorms. The most captivating part of our tour was that we got to experience the C.O.R.E project. C.O.R.E helps students in the areas they struggle most in- writing, speaking, presenting. The program gets students ready for the real world. They have tutors to help in the areas of weakness.

I just finished my third year at Augie and I couldn't be happier with how my education has gone. Augie has offered many opportunities to me that I never thought I would be able to be a part of in college.

I love my school's atmosphere and the professors and students are all very friendly and knowledgeable. However, for a "liberal arts" school, they are somewhat conservative possibly due to the school's religious nature. However it seems to be changing among students. For example, students are making a proposal to open a sexual health center on campus. We are unsure what the board has decided, but students seem to know what needs to be changed on campus.
