Your Helmet Awaits

When you accept the call to Be a Viking, you become a member of Viking Nation — a community of men and women on campus and around the world united by one thing: Spirit. 

School spirit — yes — without question. We bleed blue and gold.

What we’re talking about is the undeniable, almost-indescribable Viking spirit of entrepreneurship, discovery, friendship, faith, service to others, innovation, creative expression, challenge and victory.

Visit the Village

When you’re an AU Viking, your village is a 100-acre tree-lined campus located at the center of the state’s largest city. It’s the center of Viking life – where cultures mix and mingle, lifelong friendships form, learning and discovery abound, memories are made, traditions are celebrated, and perspectives evolve.

Visit us and experience our village first-hand. 

Be a Viking

For more than a century, Augustana Vikings have forged new pathways, conquered complex obstacles, and explored new lands in pursuit of building a better tomorrow. This year, AU celebrates 100 years in Sioux Falls.

Join the voyage, board the ship, and Be a Viking at Augustana University.
