About Augustana

Augustana is home to 2,500 students from different social, ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds.

They're all different, but they like to do a lot of the same things:

60% of them study abroad

85% volunteer

35% are in varsity sports 

20% join music ensembles, even non-majors

68% do at least one internship

Visit Augustana, meet our students and faculty, and see them in action. Look around our home in the Quad Cities, where the Mississippi River runs through it, and nothing runs like a Deere.
