Celebrate Viking Days with us.

Join us for Viking Days 2021 on Oct. 8-10! Classes ending in 1 and 6 will celebrate a reunion, but Vikings of all ages are welcome to join in the festivities.

Homecoming is one of Augustana’s longest standing traditions, dating back to the first celebration on Oct. 24, 1924. Named Viking Days in 1929, this tradition remains one of the most celebrated times of the year when alumni return to reminisce, reconnect and make new memories at their alma mater. We look forward to celebrating Viking Days and making memories with you — skol!
