| I absolutely love Augustana and am so glad I chose to study here. The professors are extremely invested in their students and I have had so many opportunities for internships and clinical experiences. I am also involved in many clubs on campus. The social life is definitely what you make it. There are parties if that's what you like, but if not there are normally concerts or other activities to do. If you are not a partier, you're sure to make friends that are similar, then you can have your own fun. I love everything about Augie and hope you will too! :) |

| My experience at Augustana College was very positive. The academics are strong and the faculty are helpful. Anything you would like to achieve is possible at Augie due to the resources that are made available to students such as Augie Choice, which is $2,000 every student has access to in order to study abroad or for an internship. I have grown as a person and have become a strong critical thinker and cultured individual. I am applying to graduate schools and I know that my resume that I have built as well as my professors' recommendations will be strong against other applicants in my program. Augustana offers a fantastic academic value and I think Augie graduates are far ahead of other students graduating from other schools in professionalism, work ethic and problem-solving. Job placement and graduate school acceptance is high in comparison to other schools. |
As far as the student body is concerned, there is a mix of students that attend Augustana. There are many groups of people including the jocks, hippies, music kids, theater kids and greeks. I was not greek and I had a lot of fun and I love the friends I have made. I feel as if it doesn't matter if you are greek or not and that non-greeks and greeks find the same amount fun (and parties).
I originally hated the Quad Cities but they have grown on me. There are many hidden things to do and cultural centers on both sides of the Mississippi in Illinois and Iowa. Downtown Moline is nice and Le Claire is a beautiful little town that is a hidden treasure in Iowa. Overall, I would redo my college experience at Augustana. I will be sad to leave after graduation in the spring!

|Not so bright|
| Augustana is a small Liberal Arts college. The education is pretty good and all the teachers seem to be pretty helpful. The students are very nice you can basically talk to anyone. The night life is very dry though. There is not much to do off campus. The bars you have to be 21 to get in and the parties are much too crowded in a ratchet house. Because of the trimesters there wont be as many parties as most schools. Greek life is popular on campus most people in sororities or frats really enjoy it. The college does a lot to help students afford the expensive school. A lot of freshmen consider transferring at one point or another. |
