During the summer prior to their ﬁrst year at Augustana, students are invited to spend a day on campus, developing class schedules with the help of faculty advisors and student peer mentors, and registering for fall classes. To secure a registration date, students must take all recommended online placement tests.
An orientation prior to the beginning of fall term helps new students adjust to college life and introduces them to Augustana’s environment as a liberal arts college. Special activities and programs provide a comprehensive introduction to the faculty, campus and community.
Small groups of new students are accompanied through many of the orientation events by upper-class students and faculty members, who introduce them to the many campus resources. Auditions for band, choir and orchestra also are held at this time.
