Augustana College - Illinois Reviews
Overall, I love Augie! I am beyond content with my choice. A few factors that lead me to feel this way are the small class sizes which almost always leads to a strong connection with the Professors. With those connections, one can strive to get their best education. Augie is a small school with a big school feel. You get the best of both worlds. There is an abundance of clubs, sports, or extracurriculars one can join to feel apart of the community. To add, there is always a friendly face around every corner. After one year Augustana is my home away from home. But, with that being said, it does not make me feel as safe as my true home does. There is plenty of money going into the facilities at the school that could also be put towards the student's safety. In my opinion, there are not enough blue light poles around campus. A simple installation of more of these can make a huge difference in making the students feel safe. This would be my one critique of the school.
I love how not only students but also the faculty and staff are extraordinarily welcoming and helpful since the beginning of my freshman year, from moving in to finding great local food, from class registration to dealing with papers/assignments to thrive in courses. There is always something going on around the campus, either a concert or an outdoor activity. Augie students can hop on any local bus for free (one only needs to show the school ID)! And for Asians, there is just a perfect place for you to curb your savory and sweet appetite!
Augustana College offers incredible opportunities, from research to study abroad, for all students to experience. The professors truly care about their work and are willing to help any student succeed!
