Student Life

Our students do a lot more than study

See for yourself!

Sure, you’ll consider big questions, in and outside of class.

You’ll also spend a lot of time thinking things like, Should I join a Greek group? How can I find a drummer for my band? Who’s going to ‘Live on Campus’ tonight? What’s for dinner?

Augustana’s campus is residential, which means you’ll live where you learn. Students here are good at balancing studies with everything else they like to do. And there is plenty to do: nearly 200 student groups, with new activities added every year, depending on the interests of about 2,500 individuals.

Here, everything you do is related, and it all adds up to the person you’ll be after you graduate. And no matter what you try, or how you apply your curiosity and energy, people are here to help you succeed. 

That’s the beauty of a residential campus, and a community that cares about both your learning and your day-to-day life.
