3 College Sophomore

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.

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: 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.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Augustana College. Their athletics and school programs are amazing and allow students to grow as individuals and find out who they are. Augustana has an extremely friendly environment that makes students feel at home. I transferred to Augustana my sophomore year of college and I am so happy with my decision. The professors and advisers really encourage students to strive to their best abilities. I feel like I have made connections at Augustana that will last me a lifetime.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus! Guaranteed, I also do not put myself in dangerous situations. I always walk with someone else, especially at night.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have loved every course I have taken so far. Similarly, every professor I have had has been excellent! All of the professors are so friendly, helpful, and really care about their students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: CORE, the career center on campus, does an excellent job of preparing students for job applications and interviews. The likelihood of getting a job with an Augustana degree is extremely high.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Swanson Commons and I LOVE it! I would stay in my exact room every year if I could. My room is very spacious and up-to-date. Having direct access to a bathroom only shared by four of us is also a great perk!

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I love attending athletic events, such as football and basketball games. The recreational facilities are newly renovated and very nice. I am also a member of two dance teams and love everything about them! Choosing to tryout for those teams has been one of the best decisions I have made in college thus far.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If I could do my college search process over again, I wouldn't do a single thing differently! I absolutely LOVE everything about Augustana and cannot even imagine myself ever being happy at any of the other schools I originally considered. The professors are wonderful, everyone on campus is incredibly friendly, the classes are excellent, and I love being involved in extra-curricular activities. Augustana is truly my home away from home.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We had to take several online informational courses about sexual harassment and sexual assult among other things and it makes me feel safer on campus knowing everyone went through that training
