Parent Weekend

Students at Augustana College

September 26-28, 2014

We welcome parents and family members of our new first-year class (Class of 2018) to spend a weekend on the campus with sons and daughters. The 2014 Parent Weekend is extra special this year because it also coincides with Viking Days. The schedule of activities for the weekend follows.
