International Auggies Speak
“Augsburg is like, a mini-version of the world. The diversity in the community is an opportunity to learn about different cultures and perspectives. However, the difference in cultures and perspectives is not a barrier between the people of Augsburg. There are always friends who are willing to help me in various situations. At Augsburg, I feel at home.” – Thu, Vietnam (Marketing)
“I chose Augsburg College because I thought it would be a great place to develop my skills needed for my studies in international business. The people are very welcoming, the facilities are great and everybody loves that I’m from outside the U.S. They want to know all about the Netherlands. Augsburg College is a fantastic and safe place for anyone who wants to be inspired, who wants to develop, and wants to have a great time.” – Jim, Netherlands (International Business)
“Augsburg is the right fit for me. As a pre-med student, Augsburg has helped me realize the ‘pre-med dream.’ I have been able to conduct summer research worthy of publication, and with the aid of an Augsburg alumni I am now shadowing a physician and also volunteering at the Hennepin County Medical Centre. What can be better than that?” – Promise, Nigeria (Biology & Chemistry)
“Minneapolis is a big, beautiful, diverse and peaceful city. I first came here as a high school student and I really enjoy living in Minnesota! People here are really friendly and they are always willing to help me. I always go to Asian markets and Chinese restaurants to buy foods and products that remind me of home. There are so many choices out here!” – Ruifa, China (Business & Mathematical Economics)
Augsburg stood out because of its location in a city, it’s small size, the strong science program and the school’s focus on community engagement. Augsburg also offers a great variety of sporting opportunities and events. We have the opportunity to compete in or watch varsity sports such as ice hockey, soccer, wrestling, track and field and football. Going to sporting events is a great way to create community, share in the school spirit and show Auggie pride!” – Sandra, Sweden (Biology & Chemistry)
“The Augsburg community is highly social and accepting of everyone. The education I receive is challenging, engaging and entertaining. I have developed a very strong relationship with all of my professors, which helped me immensely throughout the school year.
