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.

I am an incoming junior at Augustana. Over the past 2 years Augustana has provided me many opportunities for personal and academic growth. Since coming to Augustana I have taken some great classes, joined many clubs, and even surprised myself by joining a sorority. Augie is a beautiful campus and I have found many great friends here. However, there are some downsides too. The WiFi is garbage (I recommend investing in unlimited data and hotspot availability). The biology department has been horrible at getting me into classes, despite my having declared the major spring term of my freshman year (my second major - Classical Studies - goes above and beyond to ensure I get into the courses I need in a timely manner and that I feel comfortable with my learning). Administration has not been the best but I have hopes for improvement from the new administration officials.
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.
