There are so many different opportunities at Augustana. I went in just three months ago as a freshmen who had everything planned out, and now I have done all and more! I was never athletic throughout my 18 years of life, but when I came to Augie, I joined rowing and met so many amazing people while staying active. I really enjoyed it and even still hang out with the people and exercise for next season! I never understood what was so different about going to a liberal arts school, but it has changed my life. My perspectives have changed. You are exposed to so many ways of thinking-very critically thinking. I have been able to extend this new found knowledge to other areas of my life as well where it is critical that I make a responsible decision.

The thing that drew me to Augustana College off the bat, was the campus. It has an absolutely beautiful campus with amazing scenery: all season!
The only thing I can proudly say I loved about Augie, was the scenery, the amazing friends I made, and sadly, the parties. If it had not been for my friends, I would have left since my sophomore year. The academics were great, if you weren't a science major. Almost more than half of the friends that I made, who were of a diverse culture and were science majors, had left by sophomore year. The science major had it hard! Especially since many of the professors weren't much help. At one point, instead of helping my grades and advising me on how to improve, I was being told to find a different school. It's sad to say but I strongly believe that Augustana College was in fact racist.
The athletics at Augustana are great! I am on the Women's Volleyball team at Augustana and I love being a part of the athletic program. The team itself is very close knit and supportive of each other. Not only are teams supportive within their respective sports, but they are also supportive to other sports teams. The wrestling team would dress up in crazy outfits for every single one of our home games. And the volleyball team reciprocated the support and attended many of their home meets. Augustana also has an amazing Men's Basketball team. This team brings the whole school together for their games. The gym is packed on home games to see the basketball team show their skills. Overall Augustana takes sports very seriously, through the support within a team to the support the entire school and community can bring to an individual.
