Situated between the rugged landscape of the Black Hills and the urban skylines of Minneapolis, Augustana is a nationally recognized college located in Sioux Falls. Our students aspire for more than the ordinary and our graduates are the change-makers and problem-solvers of tomorrow.

Here, our renowned faculty will help you discover 21st-century skills – what many have traditionally called the liberal arts – the ability to analyze information and draw conclusions, think critically and problem solve, communicate effectively, collaborate, engage technology, and act with global awareness. Our expertise in teaching and training is why students from 29 states and 38 countries have chosen Augustana. And, we believe, it's why our enrollment is on the rise.
With a population of more than 166,000 – more than 200,000 with its suburbs – a robust economy, countless outdoor activities, hundreds of restaurants, coffee shops and stores, sought-after internship and clinical opportunities and a vibrant entertainment scene, Sioux Falls is a great place to spend four years. We call it the Ultimate College Town because, well, it is. Thanks to a new collaborative partnership, students can now explore the city free of charge.
