Augsburg University Reviews
Overall, this college is amazing when it comes to academic advising. You are always arms away from getting the right kind of guidance whether that is towards internships, degree progression, or even towards your major! I give it four stars because the tuition is still a little too high and loans aren’t exactly something I would like to pay off in thirty years. I love the diversity on the campus because they welcome everyone with kindness and equality.
Augsburg is located in an unsafe neighborhood where shootings happen at least 4 times a year. Augsburg security is not great, and is not responsive making me feel unsafe while on campus. Besides security, the cafeteria serves average food but if one were to compare it to the tuition we pay, it is far below average. Almost 60% of the professors at Augsburg are not tenured and work on short term 1-5 year contracts called adjunct professors. The parking at Augsburg is horrendous but most of the blame can go to the city of Minneapolis for not allowing other solutions to the problem. On the plus side, classes are small and the professors that are tenured at Augsburg care a lot about their students and the well-being if the school. Augsburg will also expose you to every race, ethnicity, culture, and religion that is out there as we are the most diverse school in all of Minnesota. Augsburg is truly a great school if you are not living on campus.
As a mixed black woman coming from a suburban very white sheltered/close-minded city, arriving to Augsburg college was like a breath of fresh air. I loved how accepting and diverse was. I finally felt free to be myself and it felt great to be around more people who shared similar experiences as me. I was able to learn more about the LGBTQ+ community as well during my stay the school. I was involved in various student clubs at Augsburg as well as the University of Minnesota since the schools were so close by. Most of the teachers were accommodating and kind and were comfortable around POC students. I loved the location, too. One drawback is I didn't necessarily feel as pushed academically as I did in the rigorous high achieving school district I went to in middle and high school. Sometimes I felt teachers were too lenient.
