Our Augustana Campus Ambassadors are current students from every program – from across Alberta, Canada and the world – who are excited to connect with you! Past, present and future members of the Augustana community can chat with our Ambassadors to find out about Augustana.
“We want people to experience the Augustana Advantage,” says Samantha Jones, second-year student and volunteer coordinator of the Campus Ambassadors program. “Prospective students, alumni and their families can come get a firsthand experience of what it is like to be a current student.”
There are a number of ways – based around your schedule – to spend quality time with students, professors and staff throughout the year. Preview Days are the best general introduction to Augustana that prospective students can attend. These day-long programs include information sessions, meetings with department members, lunch and a full exploration of campus with a current Campus Ambassador. You can even learn about Augustana’s immersion and international study programs! Preview Days are a great way to meet people across campus and learn important information about beginning university.
For visitors who prefer a one-on-one experience, we offer the Student for a Day program. These visits are customized to the type of experience you want to have here at Augustana: walk in the shoes of an Augustana student in your chosen program, check out a dorm room, attend a class or two, eat in the cafeteria and embrace the full campus experience.
For future students who have decided that Augustana is the right fit for them, we also host an action-packed weekend in April to welcome new students to campus. At Welcome Weekend, you will meet future classmates, get help with selecting your courses and even choose your dorm room for the upcoming year! You will make new friends, discover residence life and try out our all-you-can-eat cafeteria.
Our Campus Ambassadors program aims to provide an exceptional experience that tells our story, shares our diversity and builds relationships. We encourage you to visit and experience the Augustana Advantage.
