Welcome Week

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. In 2013, we set a world record, the year before a lip dub that bonded the class together. In 2014, we took over downtown with a flash mob:
