Campus & Community

The heartbeat of any university is its community. While academics are important, students are looking for a place they can connect, belong and thrive. It is Augustana University's priority to ensure that happens for each student. 

AU's thriving campus life is bolstered by the larger Sioux Falls community. A thriving metropolitan center, Sioux Falls is consistently ranked among the best places in America to live thanks to its safety, economy and variety of industry. Augustana is proud to be part of such a progressive city and tries to give as much to it as it has given to AU. On campus, students and Sioux Falls residents alike will find opportunities for research, athletic competition and seasonal events such as our annual Viking Days celebration.
