Discover the Place for Possibilities
At Augustana, students are inspired to imagine the possibilities. With minds open to explore, they discover new ideas, interesting concepts, and innovative approaches to challenges. Discussions in the classroom, conversations in the Commons (student union), and involvement in any number of clubs and organizations create ongoing opportunities for learning, leadership, service, new friendships and, of course, fun. We invite you to take a virtual tour of life at AU. Check out the campus and learn more about Sioux Falls, the ultimate university town. Just imagine what you, too, will discover and the friendships you’ll create when you join us at Augustana, the place for possibilities.

Homecoming is one of Augustana’s longest standing traditions, dating back to the first celebration on October 24, 1924. Named Viking Days in 1929, this tradition remains one of the most celebrated times of the year when alumni return to reminisce and students make new memories.
We hope to see you next year for Viking Days 2016, Oct. 14-16!
