The power of

If you’re looking to attend college to simply earn a degree—then, sorry, we’re not the place for you.

You’ll come here because you belong, and you will leave here changed.

You will not leave here without exploring the cultures of your vibrant surroundings;
being moved by renowned speakers and world-class events;
nurturing relationships with professors who will become mentors, advocates, and friends;
and embracing support in finding what you are called to do with your life.

You will not leave here without experiencing friendship, acceptance, community;
discoveries made beyond four walls;
and the reward of serving others.

You will leave here knowing why you matter,
that your contributions have been recognized,
that your work has significant meaning,
and that your future will make a difference.

Because …
We Are Called. Auggies.

"Not only am I making a difference in the community and developing as a person and a professional, but I feel myself learning through experience. That has been more valuable than any learning I’ve ever done."

“I didn't know how diverse and open-minded Augsburg was before I came here. I loved it, and it changed my perspective on a lot of things.”

Hands-on approach

Through internships, study abroad, research, and civic engagement, Augsburg students gain practical insights in real-world situations. We call it the Augsburg Experience.

“It was really cool to meet this wide range of genius people ... it’s really exciting that something like that is happening at such a small campus here in Minneapolis.”

Find it all in the city

Augsburg offers the benefits of a friendly, close-knit campus in the heart of a bustling city. The Twin Cities boast a vibrant culture and a strong economy, with 18 Fortune 500 companies. The campus is a stone’s throw from the Mississippi River and multiple nature paths, the Seven Corners dining and theater district (with plenty of food and entertainment nearby), the Weisman Art Center, Guthrie Theater, Target Field, and more.

Getting to and from campus is easy, too: METRO Light Rail stops just a few blocks away, taking you to downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, as well as the Mall of America

"Augsburg, at its deepest core, it is a community. I see that in professor and student relationships; student-to-student relationships; and Augsburg itself with the surrounding community. To have those connections with people who genuinely want you to do well—there’s a very deep sense of community here.”
