  • Degree: Psychology
"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."

"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."

  • Degree: Music
"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."

  • Degree: Nursing
"Augsburg graduate programs and post-graduate programs are exceptional! The programs provide real life experiences in caring and nurturing environments, with professors that support students to be their best and true selves. The professors inspire us through their actions and daily lives, to be good humanitarians, empathetic care givers, and champions for global health and well being. The programs are designed that students identify and pursue their passions and to make their individual professional practices better. The lack of financial aid offered by the school can be a barrier. However the professors and instructors are incredible and extraordinary and make the endeavor ever so worthwhile!"

  • Degree: Management
"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)."

  • Degree: Physician Assistant
"The Physician Assistant programs is excellent and I have the privilege to learn from amazingly talented professors. My only complaints about Augsburg College are the less than helpful financial aid department and the overall surrounding area. Aside from having my bike stolen and several friends having their cars wrecked and keyed, the area is littered with crime. Great school and program but horrible location."

  • Degree: Liberal Arts
"The Master of Arts in Leadership is a great program for helping you learn about leadership and management in the business world. Classes are small and the professors are engaging. The course topics are relevant and modern. For coins, there is a lack of scholarship opportunities."

"Augsburg really shows that it cares about its students. I haven't been enrolled for long, but I already feel that I know professors and that they are aware of my goals and working to help me achieve them."
