These schools are similar to Augustana University in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.
100% of students
The campus has such a community-like atmosphere. It is pretty small, so you get to know a lot of other students and your professors really well. I love going to office hours to get help with academics or just to chat with my profs. A lot of them have candy or tea to share! There is always something to do on campus, whether it is going to support athletics, attending chapel, working out at the rec center, studying in the library, chilling with friends, participating in one of the over 100 student organizations on campus, or going to one of the many free on-campus events put on by Recreational Services or the Union Board of Governors!
The school is a bit spendy. The physical campus can pose challenges for the physically disabled.
Academically pushed me. All professors care and have a lot of relevant experience.
Lack of diversity, but got better throughout my time there.
The professors at Augustana are there for you. They care about you and want to see you succeed. They are easy to connect with and build relationships with.
Augustana is a smaller campus, so the interactions with other students can feel like you are still in high school.
