3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Because it is a dry campus there isn't much for parties. Most parties happen off campus and are far and few between.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There isn't much for partying on campus. Any parties take place secretly in dorms or on off campus housing.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors on campus are extremely devoted and very unique. They are very passionate about the curriculum and especially the students. Some of the special study options on campus are the wide variety of tutors and the writing center. The writing center is a very useful tool for any class (not just English). Popular study ares include the library and the Huddle. The Huddle is a great place to grab a cup of coffee and bust out a paper.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Augie is such an ethnically diverse place. The only thing that isn't very diverse is religion. Since it is a private Christian college faith is what draws a lot of people to Augie. However, even though there are a lot of Christians, specifically Lutheran, it still amazes me how diverse people's beliefs are and how open and considerate they are when sharing them.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There isn't much for drug usage. Marijuana is probably the hardest drug on campus but it's not very prevalent. The biggest thing is drinking. Not even partying just the occasional beer or a few drinks.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This was my dream school and I got everything and more than what I expected. The courses are really innovative and interesting. You can tell the professors are passionate about what they do and that they are very moral and respectable people. Even though it is a relatively small campus the courses offered are very diverse. Class sizes are relatively small, even in general requirement classes. The biggest issue I am facing right now is through the dining hall and campus life. There is a requirement that if you are a first or second year you must have "The Unlimited" meal plan which is quite expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Like every school Augie has its ups and downs but overall it is an amazing school that, especially when it comes to liberal arts and nursing, can't be beat.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is very minimal campus crime. The biggest issue lately was a stalker on campus and that was dealt with VERY well by campus security. The campus safety service is great. They are not only there to keep you safe but they do other things like give your car a jump if needed or give you a ride late at night.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus are fairly nice. One thing that I don't like is that the freshmen get bigger rooms even if it is an older building. The process for receiving housing is very seniority based. To me this is not a very fair process because the older you get the more options you have for housing. The cost is relatively fair. The Towers have very small rooms and are very crowded. East Hall is by far the best dorm on campus. It has individual rooms connected by a bathroom. It might be an old building and it is sort of out of the way on campus but I feel it is worth it. Unfortunately it is only for upperclassmen.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are somewhat big yet a lot of students decide to take a lesser part and join intramurals. The intramurals are very good and have a wide variety of sports. There are the basics like basketball and volleyball but there are also lesser common sports like ultimate Frisbee and women's rugby.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really enjoy the small class sizes, which allow for more 1-on-1 time with professors if needed. Each professor has their own method of teaching, but all the ones I've had are very approachable.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't really looked to much into it, but I have heard that there are a lot of prospects in the area for those studying psychology.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There isn't a lot of crime on campus that I am aware of, but we have had a couple incidents while I was there in which there were safety concerns. I also don't like the lack of lighting in some areas around campus

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It all depends on which building you choose, which floor you're on, and who your neighbors are. If you're on a floor with a bunch of party people and you want to study in your room, you're going to be out of luck. It's best to talk with friends and plan ahead so you're not stuck surrounded by people you don't like.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Last year, the Augustana basketball team made it to Texas. Go Vikings! Anyway, when it comes to sports at Augie, they've got it covered. Tennis, baseball, softball, football, etc. Intramurals consist of swimming, sand volleyball, touch football... and don't forget the mud! If you don't participate in a mud-version of one of these sports, then you'll regret it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This last semester I had to take a week off because of a death in the family and my professors were more than happy to accommodate my needs and offer emotional support.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every augustana alumni i have spoken to has guaranteed their career exploration was easier because they attended augustana.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We regularly hold events in support of victims of sexual assault. We have a whole week dedicated to sexual assault victims where we dress up to different themes each day.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I never have to come home to a dirty dorm. the facilities are well kept, and we have advisers on each floor to talk to for dorm and safety concerns.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The team and student body work together as one encouraging each other and pushing each other toward their goals

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What makes my school unique is the pride we all take in our community by helping others and finding ways to better the environment around us. Augustana not only pushes the student body to lend a helping hand within the classroom, but also to be attentive to the needs of others wherever we go.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I did not like class I had that was only based on exams. However, I love the class sizes, professors, and resources for the classes.
