Augsburg College Reviews
My professors were incredibly caring and helpful. During my time at Augsburg, I was able to study abroad twice (one summer faculty-led program to Slovenia, and one summer independent course in Germany), I had two internships and a work study job, and I participated in the music program as a percussionist. I double majored in Psychology and Cross Cultural studies with a minor in German, and graduated a year early due to my summers abroad and bringing in AP credit from high school.
Great college with small student body. Individual attention from advisors and other staff. Small classes.
I enjoyed going to a smaller school where I got to know my professors and they knew me. College was incredibly important, however, I wish I would have known more about all the career options in the world before choosing my degree path.
I loved Augsburg. The staff was helpful and supportive. I was pushed to grow and learn but in a caring environment. This school had a wonderful music department. It was small and you knew each professor and they knew you. I felt encouraged and strengthened by my teachers. Music is such a personal and frightening thing to share but I knew I was able to make mistakes. In fact my favorite saying form that department is one I still use today. "It is better to have UBU (Ugly But Useful) than OOPS (One and Only Perfect Sound)" I remember that whenever I find myself worrying about being perfect. I would rather contribute than be preoccupied by perfection.
I loved Augsburg College. I felt it best fit my needs because class sizes were small, yet it was located in the heart of Minneapolis. People at Augsburg are extremely nice, helpful, and encouraging. You can get out of college what you put into it, and Augsburg has work, research experience, and other opportunities for all students. I would recommend it to anyone.
I love how homey Augsburg is. Though living on campus was expensive, I don't regret living there during all my years at Augsburg. Augsburg is a nice, small private college located in the heart of Minneapolis. It has great staffs and faculty. Most people you meet in Augsburg are very friendly. There are easy access to many resources on campus and off campus to help you succeed in Augsburg. Studying abroad was a smooth process and the staffs are very helpful in helping me with the study abroad process, as well as helping me find scholarships. I chose Augsburg mainly because of its location and its low student to faculty ratio. I've only had very few classes with more than 20 students, other than that, most of my classes have 20 or less students. Augsburg does really well in fulfilling its mission statement of educating students to be "informed citizens, thoughtful stewards, critical thinkers, and responsible leaders." The only downside is I think the tuition is too expensive, along with room and board (but I suppose in this economy, there's not much to change about it).
