What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is always obvious that the school board only cares about money and has no concern for students. But the students here watch out for each other and we are constantly trying to change the school for the better even if it doesn't want to change. The professors want students to succeed and will help you however you can if you ask. the tuition is the worst part, even though large scholarships are common the cost is still much high then other schools. The tuition has gone up once everyone of the three years I have been here. I expect it will continue to go up. I learned to late that the hole of dept is to big for me to recover from easily. The academics themselves are very challenging and I understand the education I am getting is what I am Paying for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Too expensive for poor white trash like myself. Overall its a pretty good school depending on your major. The administration seems to never stop finding ways to take your money. Students on campus are real nice 99% of the time and a professors are always willing to help, especially the ones in the sciences.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I can honestly say that I would not recommend this school. My time at Augustana was the absolute darkest years of my life. The professors are nice and teach alright, however, I feel like I didn't learn as much as I should have given the price tag of the school. If you are looking for the culture shock of your life, this is the school for you. If you want to be made to feel uncomfortable every time you walk into a room, this is the school for you. If you want to attend college where people are always in cliques, closeminded and worried about things that won't matter in another week, this is the school for you. I mostly regret attending Augustana. But, hey, at least the food is good...

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Augustana College is a great choice if you're looking for a solid liberal arts experience, the faculty is friendly and the campus community is active on issues. The college is very generous with scholarships but I would still say that it is a bit expensive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Augustana College, or Augie as we call it, is an overall great college. It has a good campus, amazing people from all over the U.S. and the world, and there is a wide variety of classes to take to help you find the perfect major for you. There are a ton of clubs, sports, sororities and fraternities, jobs, and events going on campus, so there's plenty to do. Plus the campus is in a region where there's plenty of grocery stores, restaurants, and other cool places to hang out to get away from campus. To be honest, it is a little difficult being a commuter, but overall it's been a pretty good year and this is only my first one, so I'm excited to see what's in store for the future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here. I am a freshman and am not involved in Greek life, but I still feel as though I have a group. As far as housing goes, Augustana has a 3 year living requirement, unless the student is a commuter. The dorm I am in currently does not have air conditioning, but the housing here is set up so that the quality of the dorms improve with each year. But other than that, really, the dorms are nice. With food, I guess I’m a unique case; I am a vegetarian, which means that eating in the dining hall can be inconvenient. On the weekends, only four of the seven stations tend to be open, and two of them cannot be trusted to have vegetarian options, which leaves the salad/wrap bar and the breakfast bar. During the week, though, more options are available. One of the stations is known for being the vegetarian station. We also have Chinese and Italian. At the Italian station, they typically have a pasta bar going which is nice. All in all, the food is not bad; I like it, I just wish there were more options. However, if we do not wish to go to the dining hall, we also have three other on-campus options to eat our meals. The last thing I want to comment on is the class size. This school is small. But I love the fact that it is small. I have yet to have a class at this school bigger than about twenty-five people. Our professors know our names. We do not have a different person who we are meant to ask questions; we ask them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have the convenient perspective of being a transfer student, so I can actually compare the pros and cons of this college and my last. I have to say, Augustana is WAY better in most areas than Carthage. The atmosphere is friendlier, the food is much better, and the academics are more rigorous.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Family reunions, meetups with friends, basic small talk with strangers...in all of these settings, the question as to whether or not I like my school almost always comes up. Augustana College is undoubtedly my home away from home. I felt it during my first visit, and I have never doubted my decision. I am already halfway through my second year and my roots in Rock Island, Illinois continue to grow more and more each day. The school has given me the opportunity to make a new name for myself. It has a community that allows me to be who I want to be with no judgement and always with plenty of support. It has opened doors for me, allowed me to find what I want to do with my life, provided opportunities to study abroad, and to continue my athletic career as a Viking. I work hard in the classroom, on the court, and I can always be found on the sidelines during a big game. Augustana College is a well rounded school with a well knit community that shares the same enthusiasm towards learning and extracurricular activities. It is diverse, open-minded, prides itself on its wonderful liberal arts education, and is one of the most beautiful campus in the United States. I have had some of the best professors I could ask for. They work hard to make sure I understand what is being taught, they get to know me as an individual, and they oftentimes are the reason that I can tolerate the dreaded 8:30s. If I get started on the friends and colleagues I have met on campus, I may never stop. So I’ll keep it short by saying that I have met some of the greatest people I have ever known in my life at this school, either through classes, responsible weekend parties, or communal housing. I am so thankful for the year and a half I have spent at Augustana College, and I look forward to all of the amazing things my future holds.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Augustana College is that even though it is a Liberal Arts College first and foremost; there is more to it. There are multitudes of different clubs for people to join, and it's quite easy to start up a new club if the desire is there. The class sizes are small, so that allows for more in depth discussions of the various subject material taught by the amazing professors. All in all, Augustana College is a brilliant college investment, and is worth looking into.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended this school for two years. I was very happy with the quality of education, how beautiful the campus is, and especially the caliber of the faculty. Although I had a very positive experience before I transferred to a school better equipped for my major, I feel compelled to leave a negative review because of how poorly the administration handles sexual assault cases. This is not an appropriate place for details, but please believe that this is a sincere accusation based on the experiences of sexual assault survivors who underwent the process. I mean seriously... administration tells girls NOT to go to the cops, and instead are subjected to a hearing in front of a panel of random faculty, a RANDOM STUDENT from student government, and the individual that assaulted them? Other than the administration's insistence on internally (mis)handling felony level offences, great school. Ethan W - I left in 2016. Deans you know me.
