How Tribe of Vikings members show support
In 1927, a small group of students founded the original Tribe of Vikings. Charter documents limited membership to male students and charged annual dues of a single dollar. The mission was "to stimulate interest in athletics and good fellowship of Augustana College."
Collegiate athletics has evolved in the last 90 years and the mission of the Tribe of Vikings has changed and expanded along with it.
The Tribe of Vikings currently supports 700+ student-athletes and 25 varsity sports.
In addition to making a gift through membership, Tribe of Vikings members also support:
• Diversity and inclusion – fostering a community that reflects our diverse student body and supports ideas and activities that are welcoming to all.
• Career development – helping students and graduates gain skills and make connections in the workplace or graduate school.
• Engagement – attending sporting events, staying informed, joining us for special Tribe of Vikings activities, and spreading the word!
