Both formal and informal activities encompass team sports, individual and dual sports, competitive and non-competitive activities, and a variety of fitness programs. Programs and activities are centered in fitness and wellness, sport club activities, intramurals, late nights, and more!


 Residence Life: The Department of Residence Life strives to create vibrant and welcoming communities within Augustana’s on-campus housing facilities where students feel safe, valued, included and empowered.
