Augustana College

Rock Island, ILwww.augustana.edu
Augustana sits on the edge of the Mississippi River in what’s known as the Quad-Cities metropolitan area. The private liberal arts college offers dozens of majors and minors to its 2,600 students, enabling people to study everything from graphic design to interreligious leadership to landscape architecture. Students can get real-world experience by taking advantage of Augie Choice, a program that gives them up to $2,000 to pay for study abroad, an internship, or research alongside a professor. Student clubs are popular, as are the 25 men's and women's varsity sports teams. Augustana boasts events such as Slough Fest, a music festival that has featured famous performers like Bryce Vine and Quinn XCII, and Midnight Breakfast during finals. Swedish immigrants founded the college, and today, the on-campus Swenson Center is a research institute for studying Swedish immigration to North America. (Augustana's website even has a Swedish Immigrant Trail game inspired by Oregon Trail.) Augustana has a sister college named Augustana University in South Dakota.
