Special fall visit days

Fall is a great time to get to know Augustana College. You'll learn about our mission and values, life on our beautiful campus (we're ranked in the Top 25 for a reason), career development and study abroad, the Quad Cities, admissions and financial aid.

Our student tour guides can talk about what life is like as an Augustana Viking!

Daily visits also are always available.

About Augustana

Augustana is home to 2,500 students from different social, ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds.

They're all different, but they like to do a lot of the same things:

50% of them have double majors

50% of them study abroad

35% are in varsity sports 

20% join music ensembles, even non-majors

70% complete at least one internship

Visit Augustana, meet our students and faculty, and see them in action. Look around our home in the Quad Cities, where the Mississippi River runs through it, and nothing runs like a Deere.

It’s a difference that can be missed during a family’s initial review of college costs. And it can make all the difference to a student's college choice. (Read more)
