Welcome Week

President Oliver Welcomes the Class of 2020 to campus.

Welcome to Augustana University!

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 (Saturday, Aug. 26, through Tuesday, Aug. 29) is the opening days program that is designed to help immerse you and your classmates into the Augustana community. Throughout the schedule of activities, you will have the opportunity to learn more about campus and your classmates. Your Viking Guides will guide you through Welcome Week, answering questions and helping you find your way. The Welcome Week Committee is hard at work developing a comprehensive program just for you!

In 2013, we set a world record; the year before, it was a lip dub that bonded the class together. In 2014, we took over downtown with a flash mob. Last fall, students participated in the Viking Olympics:
