A typical day involves a lot of walking to and from classes. The campus is nearly all hills and stairs, so whoever comes to Augie should be prepared to get a lot of fitness in! After walking all day, we typically go to the CSL (Center of Student Life) to eat some delicious food and go to the library and work on our homework and then go out with friends.

Pretty laid back, mostly suburbanites from the Chicago area. Everyone is really open minded and for the most part aware of current social issues involving college campuses.

Everyone at Augustana College is extremely nice; we hold doors for each other, smile in passing, and go out of our way to talk to new people. Those who should attend here should be kind, caring individuals that are excited to learn and grow.

A very driven and active person. Active, meaning active in their education. Professors at Augustana know that they are not solely responsible for students' education. It takes a team to make it a lasting experience, and to make an education. A student has to strive and avoid distractions at Augustana in order to be successful, else you could get lost in the social aspect.

I think it has to be a person who is driven to succeed but also is open to learning something different. They should be able to balance schoolwork with extracurricular activities as well as scheduling some alone time.

At Augustana College each student is different. There is not one student description that I could give to describe the perfect student. It is important to be punctual, but other than that you can tailor your learning experience to your own needs. The professors are great at helping you out, and creating a positive learning environment.

Augustana is known for being academically driven college. Many students take their studies seriously because we are gifted with caring, thought-provoking and brilliant professors. The professors set their standards high because they see out potential and challenge us to reach higher. Characteristically, we are also students interested in diversity. As I described in question one, we love to travel. I believe with these opportunities to travel abroad and around the United States of America give us the ability to take on different perspectives. Many students on the Augie campus strive to break negative stereotypes and bring awareness to unique cultures both worldwide and within our community. A few of the groups on campus include: Deaf Awareness, Student Council for Exceptional Children, International Program, Diversity Theme House, Augie Green and many more. Augie students have big hearts for taking care and understanding the people around us.
