Welcome to Augustana

As a freshman, you begin your Augustana experience the minute you arrive on campus for move-in day. From games to picnics to bonfires and concerts, see how we welcomed the Class of 2018.

Situated between the rugged landscape of the Black Hills and the urban skylines of Minneapolis, Augustana is a nationally recognized college located in Sioux Falls. Our students aspire for more than the ordinary and our graduates are the change-makers and problem-solvers of tomorrow. We invite you to meet the newest Vikings: the Class of 2018.

Explore Your Potential

Follow students Morgan Sorensen and Josh Hedeby as they venture through and reflect on their first-year experience.

At Augustana, you will explore your interests and find your passion through experiential, hands-on learning programs and more than 50 majors and pre-professional specializations and along the way, you'll grow and change as a person.

Discover our Professors

Our professors know your name, value your interests, engage you in conversation, care if you miss class and, are also passionate learners. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 12:1, Augustana classrooms foster open dialogue, collaboration and critical thinking. Meet Dr. David O'Hara, associate professor of philosophy and classics, and learn about his latest book that chronicles his search for understanding, self-discovery, and fish.

From Coronation to the "Burning of the A," Viking Varieties, float building, the parade and more, Viking Days is a time when priceless memories are made. For our alumni, it's an opportunity to come home again to reconnect with treasured professors, see good friends and celebrate timeless traditions. Join us for Viking Days 2014.
