How do I get to Augustana?

Augustana’s small class sizes guarantee personal attention from professors who are respected in their fields and who love to teach. On this campus, you can pursue your academic goals and create opportunities for a bright future.

Since 1910, Augustana has welcomed thousands of international students to campus. We hope that you will help us carry on this proud tradition by making our campus your Canadian ‘home away from home.’
