As a Religion and Philosophy major I knew that this would be the place to go. The professors are amazing in their fields and best of all, they are faithful. However, you do not have to be a religion major or someone of Christian faith to have a great experience here. The nursing major is very popular and there are many different faith/ethnic groups represented on campus.

I love all my professors and the other students are, overall, very passionate about what they are doing. The only issue I have is dealing with Financial Aid

Many people, including myself, will tell you that Augie just "feels right". Why? Maybe, it's because of the small class sizes, awesome professors, wonderful campus setting, and welcoming community. Augustana is truly the place for possibilities. It's not just a marketing slogan; they're being serious. Heck, I'M being serious! You can double (even triple!) major in various subjects, there's no pressure to find (or keep) a major from the get go, and the staff (who you'd do well to get to know) are literally some of the nicest people I've met on this planet. Because it's a private, Lutheran-affiliated university, some people think that the fun isn't going to be so present, or that you have to be a certain type of person to get in. Not true at all! I work there (*ahem* work study, anyone?) and have seen all types of people walk through those doors. Plus, the place is totally happening. There are so many things going on there that I couldn't possibly list them all. You've got your intramurals, regular sports, tons of clubs, and general activities that anyone can join in on! Augie is all about studying abroad, and a great amount of people take advantage of that program. The dorms are, well, dorms. But, they did change one of the options to include a microfridge (a.k.a. a microwave/fridge combination) in your tuition, so that you don't have to bring one yourself. There are some funky old buildings from the 1800s still standing (Admissions and East Hall), and people usually just like to hang out on campus, because, as I mentioned earlier, there are so many things to do. If you're already going to attend or are attending Augie, awesome! Go Vikings! If you're thinking about making Augie your next step, then I'd definetly recommend it. Good luck!
