"I chose Augustana because of the community atmosphere. The first time I visited Augie, everyone I interacted with was welcoming and seemed genuine. . .During my visit, I sat in to observe a psychology class and watched the way students were able to ask questions and engage in class discussions. At that moment, I knew that Augie was the perfect school for me."

How to prepare for your first college visit

Visiting schools is one of the most integral (and fun) parts of the college selection process. Schools may look great on paper, but the only way to know if the school is the right fit for you is to go and get a feel for campus life.

What makes a campus beautiful? It's more than you think.

College campuses are known to be beautiful because of academic buildings and classrooms, but there is more than physical beauty. The memories made with friends at the quad and in residence halls are just as important.
