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. We invite you to meet the newest Vikings: the Class of 2018.
At Augustana, you will explore your interests and find your passion through experiential, hands-on learning programs and more than 50 majors and pre-professional specializations and along the way, you'll grow and change as a person.
Our professors know your name, value your interests, engage you in conversation, care if you miss class and, are also passionate learners. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 12:1, Augustana classrooms foster open dialogue, collaboration and critical thinking. Meet Dr. David O'Hara, associate professor of philosophy and classics, and learn about his latest book that chronicles his search for understanding, self-discovery, and fish.
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. Now, thanks to a new collaborative partnership, students can now explore the city free of charge.
