Friends of Augustana
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 enjoys several fellowship events throughout
the year, including the Fall Luncheon and Membership Social and the
Annual Friends of Augustana Scholarship Breakfast.
