Fall Visit Days

September & October

Visit Days are a great opportunity to experience what Augustana has to offer and to introduce you to life on our campus, all in the comfort of a group environment. Attending a Visit Day is perfect for your first visit to campus and we recommend them for any age high school student. You will receive an overview of the admissions process and academics at Augustana. You'll also take a campus tour with a current student.

Schedule of Events (9 a.m. — 2 p.m.)

Augie opportunities fair
Welcome address
Academic Session
Admissions/Scholarship Overview (get to know your admissions counselor)
Campus Tour & Lunch
Wrap-up with Admissions

The Augie Opportunities Fair, offered during check-in, provides access and interaction with every academic field at Augustana and a number of other key programs such as campus ministries, the career center, fine arts, the honors program, international study, campus ministries, and student activities.

The Academic Session provides an in-depth look at select departments as well as an overall academic perspective. There are three options for this section of the day:

1. You know your major: major specific academic sessions of select departments provide an in-depth look often including suggested coursework, hands-on learning opportunities, and graduate success stories.  
2. An undecided advantage: the Choosing a Major academic session is for those who are uncertain what they will study.
3. Your major is not listed: if you do not see the department you are hoping to meet with in the list of options, sign up for your second choice and then email bethford@augustana.edu the field you were hoping to hear more about and we will try to make arrangements.

Scholarship Essay Contest

Augustana College will award three scholarships (one $1000 and two $500) to students who attend the visit days this fall. Scholarship eligibility is based on your 500-word essay on the following topic. Bring your essay with you on your visit, and we'll take it from there.
If I could open up my autobiography to page 137, what would I read on that page?
