At Augustana, we believe certain individuals are called to “Go Viking.” They understand that in order to create an even better tomorrow, they must explore and discover bold concepts and important ideas today. Take our video tours and explore the campus and city of Sioux Falls; learn about the academic discoveries you'll make; and see how, at Augustana, you will create lifelong friendships and unforgettable experiences in and outside the classroom.
Learn about the Augustana campus — home to nearly 1,800 students from 30 states and 44 countries around the globe. You'll also learn about the city of Sioux Falls — home to 160,000 people, a robust economy, thriving business environment and vibrant arts scene. Named the No. 1 "Best Small Place for Business and Careers" by Forbes, Sioux Falls is at the intersection between the rugged beauty of the Black Hills of South Dakota and the urban skylines of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota.
Learn more about the academic experiences you'll discover at Augustana — from rich classroom discussions to lectures that will take you beyond the borders of campus to locations throughout the world. Learn about our Study Abroad programs, designed to give you a first-hand look at other cultures, traditions and economies in order to broaden your global perspective and understanding.

As a freshman, your Augustana experience begins the minute you arrive on campus for move-in day. Whether you're moving into Bergsaker or Solberg Hall, both buildings are jumping with upperclassmen and Student Services team members on hand to help you unload your car and move into your room. Once you're settled, you'll participate in a variety of events to help you form bonds and friendships with your fellow classmates and learn your way around campus. From games to picnics to bonfires and concerts, your first week at Augustana will be among the most important "beginnings" of your life.
