Augustana University Reviews
Rating 3.86 out of 5 479 reviews
I like the school because the landscape and professors are good and do what needs to be done but, I do think that it could be better because there are not enough teachers but I don't necessarily think its their fault that we are in a teacher shortage. Also, I think the dorms could be cleaned better but thats about it.
Augustana is a university that prepared me well for life after college and preparing for my graduate studies. Without the dedicated faculty, the rigorous curriculum would have likely been difficulty to overcome. However, the support at Augustana was incredible and I strongly recommend any undergraduate student, especially those looking at a career in medicine or healthcare, to consider Augustana as the place for your undergraduate education.
Something I have found to be the best part of my experience at Augustana University is the connections I have made. Whether this is between my peers, professors, or other workers on campus, I have made long-lasting relationships that have helped me grow as a student and a person. In addition, the campus is very engaging and constantly has different opportunities available for all people. It's a great way to meet new people, learn about perspectives different from my own, and just get involved with the campus. I look forward to the new updates around campus and think that the university is constantly trying to be the best it can be, and that shows.
I love Augustana University. I was dead set on another college, but after I toured Augustana I knew I would be right at home. I am apart of their dance team and am a sociology major with a minor in gender, sexuality, and women's studies. I could not tell you how much I love Augie. All the professors care so much and they try to get to know you. I also am a gay woman and feel comfortable on campus. They are decently welcoming to everyone from every walk of life, and are only getting better to accommodate all students. I would recommend Augie to anyone!
Augustana University prides itself on a small campus feel with big opportunities. The support from faculty and the ability to involve oneself in a variety of activities is wonderful; though the size of the university itself can be limiting at times, specifically socially and on weekends.
One of the best things Augie has to offer is in the community created by students and faculty. There are also great internships and opportunities, although there are rocky places in administration and expanding the school too fast.
Augustana University is a good University that focuses on helping students achieve their goals. The staff is highly qualified and supportive. Other offices such as the student success center ensure that students remain supported through the undergraduate and post graduate journey.
So Ill be honest, this was not my first choice school and if it wasn't for the fact that this was the only school open during covid in person that I applied to I may have not come. However, this school has become my second home and I could not have asked for a better college experience. Coming from the Twin Cities many of my friends opted for larger schools in MN. Augustana is not well known in my areas whereas it has an impressive reputation within the state of South Dakota. The biggest thing for me was community and I believe that's something the school works hard to accomplish. While it's not a huge party school and its is academically focused, there are on and off campus events hosted by the school and students every weekend. Sports are a big deal and the teams perform well. Networking and connections with professors and staff make it incredibly easy to find jobs and internships within Sioux Falls and the state. Its the perfect school for academics and feeling a part of something.
Awesome and very friendly and helpful people all around. Best place for international Students. If you're planning to come to Augustana University You should do it right away. I feel this University is really goof and your future is secure in their hands.
Augustana University has been a fantastic experience for me. When coming to this place everyone is so welcoming and involved with the school and community in many different ways. My courses have helped me to engage in and discover new interests. The professors here care for their students and are always building relationships inside and outside the classroom. As for the student body, everybody has a place to be included. There are many clubs that offer students the to engage within the community and promote positive outcomes. There are many opportunities offered here and the learning outcomes are absolutely amazing. It is wonderful to see students pursuing their desired career paths.
Augustana University has some of the most amazing professors I've ever heard of. They are committed to excellent teaching, but also to their students. I've never had a professor that I didn't enjoy at Augustana, both within my major and outside of it. They are incredible and I know my education and future is in great hands!
I loved my time at Augustana! The small campus feel was so homey, and all the professors were so passionate and caring! It was very easy to make friends with all the activities offered for students! The only downside was the outdated dorms and the not so great food in the dinging hall.
Loved the campus, the professors and the atmosphere. Campus housing is nice and the athletics are great. Augie is a great place to get a degree!
Augustana University is a great institution for anyone who has a dream of gaining a college degree. For me, ill say this is home because it has only been three months of study but it feels like two years. The educational and students engagement programs in the school are very engaging which makes learning more flexible in and out of class. My favorite of the schools activities is the intramural sport activities because it helps me to get a feel of how different sports are played and also get to know more people in the school. one change I will like to see is that the school holds more students socializing activities that helps to grow the interactions amongst students. In all, Augustana University is a very cool place to study, having an exceptional atmosphere to gain knowledge and also prepares you on how to utilize that knowledge to make an impact in your community and the world as a whole.
I love the student body here. There's quite a diversity. However, I do not like how the school makes some easy courses that are not a major requirement super hard.
In all honesty, this is the best school that I ever could have decided to go to. There is something about the community here...everyone is so kind and inviting. The professors genuinely care about me, and I feel as though I can thrive and become who I want to be here. It is an amazing school.
Augustana University is a good school with a good campus and good professors. But the highlight, for me, is the lovely community!
I love Augustana University so much because it is so welcoming of international students like me. It also provides a very safe space for learning, and the professors are highly invested in our academics
Overall, I have not been the biggest fan of Augustana (SD). I had transferred to look for new opportunities and, to be honest, I haven't had many. Sure, it is nice to be in a nice city like Sioux Falls that is generally pretty safe, but there just isn't much on-campus. The campus is just full of cliques and if you don't fit in with a certain type of people, you will be an outcast and that's not the college experience I want. I want an experience where I can make some good friends but still have the freedom to go out and meet new people every weekend and overall just have fun while getting a good education.
I am currently a junior at Augie and my experience has been amazing so far! Students are provided with multiple academic and professional opportunities that set them up for success later in their lives. Professors are always available for students for questions related to the class or as a source of knowledge and experience. The student success center helps students find and prepare for jobs through direct assistance with resumes, cover letters, and interview skills. Augustana also provides a balance between academic and social life. Multiple events happen on the weekends or throughout the week that allow students to find a community they belong to as well as enjoy their time on campus. The international students community also adds diversity to campus by hosting multiple events to educate other students about other cultures. Overall, Augustana provides students with a challenging education and a diverse environment with lots of opportunities to grow.
