Welcome to the Place for Possibilities

Here, we inspire our students to dream big dreams and forge new pathways toward a brighter tomorrow. At AU, students find academic challenge, opportunities for experiential and entrepreneurial learning, support to develop inspiring careers, and guidance to help them build lives of meaning and purpose. That's why Augustana University is the place for possibilities.


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. Tour campus, meet students, visit with professors, meet our Vikings and witness the shared commitment to exploration and discovery.

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. Today, a new era is drawing near.

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