Welcome Week

Augustana students welcoming the new freshman class

Welcome to Augustana College!

A part of the Viking Voyage, Welcome Week is your first step. Embark on a new journey and set sail on your future.

Welcome Week is the opening days program that is designed to help immerse you and your classmates into the Augustana College community. Throughout the activities, you will have the opportunity to learn more about campus and your classmates. Your Welcome Week Viking Guides will guide you through Welcome Week, answering questions and helping you find your way.

The Welcome Week Central Committee, led by Kelly Nelson and Beth Schleusener, are hard at work developing a comprehensive program. This last year we set a world record, the year before a lip dub that bonded the class together. What will happen this year is yet to be released but it is certain to entertain.

Be sure to check out all the features of the First Year Programs website for the latest information about clubs and organizations, dining questions, Welcome Week schedule of events, and much more. We are excited to have you on campus and starting your life as an Augustana student.
