International students bring a wealth of diversity and perspective to the Augustana University community and contribute in many ways as they earn their AU degrees.
IPO Welcome Week
Twice a year, the IPO and student volunteers in its ACE Ambassador Program welcome new international students to campus for international student orientation. Students settle into their on-campus accommodations, meet new friends, learn how to be a successful international student and get ready for classes to start. In the fall, we take a trip to see Mt. Rushmore, Badlands National Park, Crazy Horse Memorial and hike Black Elk Peak.
Welcome Week at AU
World’s Got Talent
Typically, this is the culminating event for International Education Week held in November — the World’s Got Talent Show at Augustana highlights international and American student performers with unique talents.
