3 College Freshman

Scholarships: You get a decent amount from the school but even if your credentials go up, your scholarship amount is locked all four years.

Campus Food: There is only one dining hall on campus unless one chooses to go eat at the College Center which is more fast food options or eat an ala carte meal in the brew. The C Store has many food options and is more like a convenience store. The price is very high for just average food and it takes some getting used to.

Campus Housing: I believe Augustana to have a beautiful, close-knit community that respects each other. The housing is kind of expensive depending on which dorm you live in. I would recommend Erickson, Westerlin and Swanson to check out. There are tennis courts, fitness centers, and sand volleyball courts around the dorms which are very nice. Housing process is very simple and understanding as well.

Majors: A lot of review of AP material in 200-level classes

Academics: Undergrads have it extremely easy the first two years. The dumb thing is that they make you take 12 classes that aren't basics or required for your major before you can graduate. Thats a whole term for those classes

Campus Quality: The main buildings are aesthetically pleasing to the eye and are the only ones they'll show on a tour

Guys & Girls: People here are fake, they talk badly behind your back, they lie to your face, they are rude, and they are cliquey. They don't take into consideration other people's backgrounds or beliefs.

Overall Experience: It's an easy school that doesn't really prepare you for the working world. The people you meet here are fake and put up a persona to fit in with everyone else. It's unsafe. I'm glad to be transferring.

Overall Experience: The classes are a joke the first two years here. LSFY is a mandatory 3 term process that is irrelevant and reiterates what you learn freshman year of high school. There is no transition into college level writing, ap credits aren't taken. Teachers leave after 1 term of teaching, the major/minor course catalogue is confusing. The only good thing is that you can major in many things at the same time and still graduate on time.

Health & Safety: The security on campus is laughable at best. The only security is a card to get into the dorms though door holding or asking someone to open it has a 9/10 chance of working. It is in a poor neighborhood, students run the security desks in the dorms. No cameras except in the lobbies of the dorms and usually go unchecked unless damage to school property happens. I do not feel safe in this school.

Greek Life: From what I've experienced most of the people in Social Greek Life are fake and cliquey. Most friends you make freshman year will not talk to you once they get bidded into a chapter. To get you to pledge for their chapter the 'actives' go out of their way to be nice to you during pledging season after not paying any attention to you the days before that. No national social greek life but they still take themselves ridiculously seriously.

Athletics: For D3 they renovate the multiple athletic facilities far too much.

Off-Campus Housing: A support beam broke in one of the houses because there was like 10 people in the living room.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The regular chain restaurants make the list and hardly any provide student discounts.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The security in this school is laughable at best.

Party Scene: You are only allowed into parties if you are in greek life after the first trimester. The first month, the parties get raided all the time and have gotten worse as the years go by. It gets very crowded with only a few people since its such a small space. It's better to just party with friends but you can't be too loud because then the CA will knock on your door.

Scholarships: They give you money but they raise tuition without raising the scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: No variability, over salted, undercooked meats of poor quality, the grab-n-go's are processed and frozen, none of the fruits or vegetables are fresh, they re-cook food that has been left over. I've gotten food poisoning multiple times after eating there.

Campus Housing: The two most updated dorms re about a 20 minute walk from the academic buildings and get unnecessary renovations every year. The other three are inside the main campus but have no air conditioning, no space, and are very restrictive to noise, visitors, and space. The apartments offered on campus are cramped and cost too much for what you get. If you want to move from your dorm room to another one for any reason, there is a fee.

Majors: I was automatically accepted into my program and just have to work hard to stay in it.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Students at Augustana are just like students any where else.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The campus is currently in the process of creating a fraternity/sorority for people who do not identify with a gender.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Augustana has a good and challenging curriculum that will prepare you for the real world.
