Experience Augustana

What is Experience Augustana?

You're a senior, and you've applied for admissions at Augustana. This is it...you're closing in on a college choice.  To help with the decision, find out what it's like to be an Augustana student.  (Or find out what it's like to be an Augustana parent.)  See first-hand how students and mentors work together in our collaborative learning environment. Have a conversation with the Dean of Students and see how students balance academic challenge with co-curricular passions.
