3 College Freshman

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

4 College Sophomore

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

4 College Junior

Academics: I love so many of the professors I've had. They're interested in their students--I've been invited to some of their houses, I've talked to them outside the classroom--and they often teach things about life outside of their designated subject. The english professors are amazing.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I have a lot of work for my major (music ed) and feel like there is always something I need to be doing. Sometimes I really just need a break, but I know that it will all be worth it in the end. We have a great music program and I will be well prepared for my future career.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: you are not rush to choose your major you have until your soph. year to choose your major
