Hall Staff

Granskou is staffed by 8 Viking Advisors (VAs) and there is also a professional area director that oversees Granskou and East halls.  While you can usually find staff in the hall throughout the day, designated VAs are required to be on call and accessible to students every night after 7 pm.

Granskou Hall

Named for Augustana's 14th president, Rev. Dr. Clemens M. Granskou, Granskou Hall is an eight story upperclass residence hall. It is identical to and east of Stavig Hall. Granskou and Stavig Halls are often referred to as "The Towers." Major renovations, including new fire suppression systems, new lighting, carpeting and room furnishings, were completed in summer 2011.
