Augustana University Reviews
I am studying business communications and marketing at Augie. Many of the business classes are focused on real world experience through creating marketing plans for local clients or hearing about a business professional’s experience in their position.
Augustana’s weekend life options have also led to my positive college experience. With the weekend offering of other clubs on campus and new-found college friends, many students—including myself—find themselves WANTING to say at Augustana on the weekends.
Augustana truly is a community. With the small campus size, there is always someone you know and always someone new to meet. The professors care not only about your class performance, but also about your well-being—they become friends outside the classroom!
