Augustana College—Rock Island, Illinois

Do you know that the number one most beautiful campus, per US News & World Report, is in Illinois?
It's Augustana College located in Rock Island, Illinois, and home to the Vikings! "Augie" is a private, liberal arts and science college with about 2,600 undergraduates and a student-faculty ratio of 12:1. Plus Augustana may be more affordable than you think! Generous financial aid and scholarships keep the cost low.

Four reasons that make Augie standout:
  • Augie Choice gives you $2,000 to use for your research, internship or international study.
  • Get hands-on learning in The Quad Cities and the Mississippi River.
  • Augustana takes advising to a new level with CORE (Careers, Opportunities, Research, Exploration).
  • Top 10 in the nation and No. 1 in Illinois for the number of Academic All-Americans. Augie provides phenomenal academic and student life balance.
Becoming an Augie Viking means participating in:
  • Augustana Viking Pups, a service and therapy training dog club
  • Cardboard Boat Regatta...that's right, a cardboard boat!
  • Augie's tradition of Semester Shutdown...where over 600+ students gather to celebrate the holidays in fun and quirky ways.
