Overall Augie – Greek life is what really keeps Augustana going. It is a small school to know enough but not everyone. When needed the campus really comes together to achieve goals. right now there is a lot of construction which stinks but its good overall.

You typically only live off-campus junior or senior year. I would just make sure you're still relatively close to the school and not too far away from the campus activities/classrooms.

Parking can be challenging at times because you have to make sure that you abide by the rules for each lot. Also, make sure to get a parking pass from security for your visitors so they don't get a ticket.

On Campus Activities – There are not many activities to do outside of the college, but there are many activities offered to do inside of the campus which is very helpful.

Science Majors – This field of study should not be underestimated. It is challenging yet it provides enough information and support to succeed in this area. It is good to stay on top of reading for classes so that the information sinks in easier. If you are motivated and dedicated to this field, you should be successful.

The classes at first may seem pointless, but I found to enjoy them because they were not your typical class. They are required for first-year students and they help students improve writing and reading skills. At first, I thought I would not like these courses, but after taking all three, I appreciated the different lessons I learned from those classes.

The athletics programs are great. The facilities are decent. The students take pride in their sports and love their teams.

Bio Major – The science majors are really hard at Augie but they are worth it. I enjoy the classes. They challenge you a lot and you have to study a lot for the classes.

If you do not have a parking pass, it is really hard to find parking.

Augie Greek – Greek life is great and there is a place for everyone.

Augie Life – The campus itself is beautiful but outside of it is the rock island neighborhood which is not the best. On the upside right across the river is davenport which is nicer and has a lot of activities to do. The District in rock island is where all of the nightlife activities take place.

Augie Love – Augie is a great school to attend. The classes and the teachers are amazing.

Very Easy – Declaring a major was very easy. The process is you schedule a meeting with your first-year advisor, then he/she will ask you your major, they will look into the criteria and make sure you understand it, and then your either assigned a new advisor in your field or you can seek a new advisor in your field. It's as simple as that.

Most Are Good. I will be starting my major in the fall and my advisor has laid out the next three years of my life. It doesn't look too difficult with the amount of prerequisites that I still have to do. The main majors at Augustana are, all sciences across the board (Biology, Chemistry, Physics). The other majors are good as well but they lack quality professors and opportunities in a few fields.

I don't like being out at night. Everyone is drunk! unless you're an alcoholic, stay indoors, watch a movie. much more fun

Underage Drinking and Pot Smoking – At times I wonder if the authorities are blind! Underage drinking is illegal. Arrest people and maybe they'd stop pretending it isn't. Also... if someone looks high on MJ, they probably are. Please get these trouble makers off campus!

Small Town Ghetto – Rock Island is a scary place at night. Its financially troubled and the college is separated from the town. I don't like walking alone. Theres nothing of interest within walking distance, just high school gangs looking for trouble.

Greeks Are Loud Partiers – The Greek Life here is a party scene. Everyone knows that people just join to get some free alcohol and a "good time" meanwhile grades suffer.
College Sophomore 2012-04-10T20:12:19Z
There are usually a number of good parties going on during the weekend. Everyone should be able to find something they like.

General Campus Aesthetics – The campus is beautiful; wooded with a nice mix of origianal and updated buildings.
College Sophomore 2012-03-16T16:08:13Z
My overall experience at Augustana has been wonderful. The students, friends, teachers, staff, coaches are all top notch. When I started Augustana I never played LaCrosse. I joined the club and was accepted by all very quickly. After my first year playing I was offered a position on the new Varsity Women's LaCrosse team. Augustana has always been my first choice of colleges and I would not want to attend school anywhere else.

There are a variety of different off campus housing options. Although, I am not using the off campus housing at this time I do have some upper classman friends that live in the housing and the pros would be learning how to live on own, finding place to live on own and paying the rent monthly. The cost of these are priced well for college students I believe.

Communication Sciences and Disorders – I love being a Communication Sciences and Disorders major. The professors are great and the facilities are really nice. The building is pretty new and we are one of the few private schools that have an on-campus clinic. The graduate school acceptance percentage is pretty good compared to other schools.

There is always a lot of activities going on around campus each week which is really nice. THe student center is pretty out-of-date but the school is renovating the library to add a new student center that will be super nice. The library is really nice allows for students to have a great place to study and socialize.

Decent Town – The shopping is pretty good. There is two malls within the quad cities and there are many different stores like Target or Walmart. The surrounding neighborhoods aren't the best but they are tolerable. There isn't much in walking distance besides a couple stores and fast food restaurants. The town is pretty recieving towards Augustana students even though we tend to stay within our "Augie bubble."
Sorry, there are no reviews.
