Augsburg University Reviews
I'm currently a first year at Augsburg and haven't necessary explored every corner of the campus. I am aware of many of their positive opportunities which is something you can learn in a simple tour of the school. Its a really comfortable atmosphere. There's a large range of diversity so I doesn't feel like another year in your typical high school. The professors are really open-minded and flexible. The only reason I'm giving this university four stars is because I haven't had a first hand experience with their many opportunities and clubs however, I am proud to say that I'm an Agguie!
Augsburg University provided the tools and support for us students to succeed during the trying time of COVID-19. Teachers were helpful and extremely supportive. While the work load was overwhelming at times, teachers were extremely understanding and sympathetic of students unique circumstances. Some draw backs to online learning however were that at time there were some technical issues that interferes with being able to contact teachers and also to catch up we were assigned a lot of work at once which was very overwhelming. But again teachers were supportive of this and always were there to help. Overall while the online learning experience was not ideal, Augsburg made me feel less stressed about school.
I'm only going onto my third year at Augsburg but my experience so far has been good. If you are looking for small classroom sizes, easy connectivity with professors and students around you, it is a good option for those interested in these criteria's. Along with it being a private school, they offer a lot of scholarships for students of color and first-generation students. A bonus is that it is near downtown Minneapolis!
