A primary objective of Horizons 2019: The Campaign for Augustana University is to enhance campus life through several major initiatives:


The Student Activity Center

Student Activities CenterDesigned with students in mind, the 125,000 square-foot Student Activity Center (SAC) will include a 200-meter track, expanded fitness, recreation and athletic practice spaces, and will provide enhanced areas for our exercise and sport science programs.

With impressive frontage on 33rd  Street, the SAC will be home to our Enrollment Center, offering easy accessibility to the offices of admission and financial aid. The SAC will offer comfortable spaces to live and learn with numerous amenities to enjoy.


Humanities Center Renovation

Humanities CenterFor the past 45 years, Kresge Recital Hall has served as our community's performance venue and as a hub for student activities and public engagement. We must now renovate this space to create an environment that appropriately meets the needs and expectations of our audiences. Improvements will include updated house lighting, a state-of-the-art sound system, improved stage accessibility, new seating, and improved sound buffering.

Several other areas inside the Humanities Center will also be enhanced, including renovations to the practice rooms.


Morrison Commons Renovation and Expansion

Morrison Commons, Ordal Dining RoomGifts for the Morrison Commons Renovation and Expansion project will create new and enhanced areas for student and community programming.

Initial plans envision an expansion of the Ordal Dining Room, new student areas for individual and group work, a remodeled concourse to feature new and renovated retail spaces that better serve students, and spaces for Augustana to host community gatherings and events.


Accessibility and Campus Beautification

Augustana's campusWe have all heard it said that the sense of community at Augustana is special and unique, due in part to the attractive and walkable campus.

Our goal is to sustain the beauty of the campus landscape, enhance sensory experiences, and integrate elements that provide accessibility to individuals seeking to live on or visit our campus.
