Alexis from Saint Louis, MO
Augustana has an absolutely beautiful campus. The professors there are kind and willing to help. The classrooms are the perfect size for students looking for a smaller college atmosphere.
Alexandra
Fantastic! Though it is in the country and a little out of the way, the professors are intelligent, professional, and personable. During my first visit the Dean and Head of the Business Department learned my name, and the students were helpful and genuinely thrilled to be an Augie Doggie. Their curriculum is diverse and challenging, while allowing for a great deal of intellectual exploration.
Aubrey from Algonquin, IL
Augustana has a beautiful campus and friendly people. This college has multiple opportunities in anything you can think of, including sports, clubs, Greek life, internships, etc. This is a college for people who want to be involved on campus.
