| They spend millions on renovating perfectly good buildings such as the library, meanwhile shoving students into sick homes that have mold, fungus, and who knows what else. |
Moreover, our internet isn't even fast enough to watch a youtube video that would help me study for math.
The only reason I'm staying is because of the scholarships. If I had it all to do over again, I would have gone to NIU or Iowa State. At this point I just want to get my degree and get out.

Three things about Augustana that any prospective student should know.|
1) Overall educational quality is average at best.
2) Very expensive, don't get what your paying for.
3) Faculty are in and out all the time, most are not tenure. Many are often confused and unorganized as to how to teach or plan course material.
4) Credits will not transfer to better funded institutions
5) IF you are here for science, consider transfering unless you have financial ties to this institution. It is clearly not worth what you maybe paying.
6) Liberal Arts Biology versus tech or university biology courses are very different in content. What they cover at a liberal arts institution is very different than what they cover at a tech/university even though class coding is similar (ie. what you cover in Bio 350 at school A, may not be even close to what you cover in school B's comparable course).
7) Good luck to anyone pursuing higher education these days, my advice is research everything about an institution before you apply. Not every private school is good.
8) Science/lab courses on a trimester system are terrible (semester= 16 weeks, trimester= 10 weeks)

| This School is for the Rich and White. Do not expect to come to Augustana for an education. You come to Augustana College and pay the extremely high tuition so you can be entertained with Greek Activities like drinking alcohol with other rich white kids, and never get in trouble. |
