The Friends of Augustana is a group of people who
have a passion and love for Augustana. Alumni, current and former
employees, and parents of current or former students are all
represented in the group’s membership. Our mission is to provide financial assistance to talented Augustana students through a scholarship endowment, but membership is entirely social! Please know that by joining the Friends of Augustana, you will not be called to volunteer your time. But do come to our events and enjoy being on campus and supporting our students!

The Friends of Augustana provide parents of current students living on campus with a wonderful opportunity to recognize their student's birthday or accomplishment at Augie in a special way. Your donation will go toward scholarships for Augustana students.
The Friends of Augustana are again pleased to offer a variety of Christmas tree ornaments available for purchase. All proceeds will go toward providing student scholarships. The 2013 ornament takes the shape of Santa Ole, dressed in a red suit with a Viking helmet peeking out from under his fur-lined cap.
