What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was hard for me to adjust to the culture and college life but I have come to have a really good time. My suggestion is to join extracurricular activities, you need to make friends (especially ones with similar interests) in order to get the best out of this place. Friends will help you find out about community events, parties, logistical stuff, rides, etc. Also friends are great for your mental health and quality of life! Augustana has a lot of opportunities to make friends so you should be good.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall view of the campus is that Augustana College is a welcoming community that strives for diversity and opportunity for everyone, they frequently hold interreligious, interrace, and interethnic events in which people of all backgrounds can get to know one another in a safe and non-segregated environment. Although there are some drawbacks to Augustana College, every schools has some, but if I were given the choice to choose a college again it would be Augustana College.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! I was invited to visit the college and speak with a coach for a recruit event. From the time I got to campus, everyone was super friendly. The college is beautiful and the dorms were kept clean. The staff has been super friendly and I am looking forward to attending in the fall.

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.
