Hotels near Augsburg College in Minneapolis, MN

Augsburg College is a private liberal arts college located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Originally named the Augsburg Seminary, the school opened in 1869 in Marshall, Minnesota as the first seminary founded by Norwegian Lutherans in the United States. The college moved to Minneapolis in 1872 and graduated its first students in 1879. First intent on preparing its students to be ministers, Augsburg broadened its focus throughout the subsequent decades, developing an emphasis on general education and a wide ranging program of modern liberal arts majors. In 1963, the seminary moved to Luther Theological Seminary in St. Paul.

Today, Augsburg College offers undergraduate degrees in over fifty areas of study, as well as six Masters Degree programs in Education, Leadership, Business Administration, Social Work, Nursing, and Physician Assistant Studies. With a relatively small student population of around 3700 and a student/faculty ratio of approximately 13 to 1, Augsburg College’s education emphasis is on direct, personal experience. The school is currently accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

Augsburg College’s main campus is situated around Murphy Square, the oldest park in Minneapolis, with the Mississippi River and the Seven Corners theater district just a few blocks away. Students can choose to live on campus in one of the school’s five residence halls, or off campus in the surrounding Cedar-Riverside neighborhood. Nearby light rail and public bus transportation provides students with easy access to the city of Minneapolis and its wide selection of restaurants and shops, as well as entertainment, physical and cultural activities.

Augsburg fields nine men’s and nine women’s varsity sports teams, collectively known as the Auggies. The Auggies are a member of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and compete in NCAA Division III athletics. Besides supporting their sports teams, Augsburg students are actively involved in over fifty campus affiliated clubs and are encouraged to participate in service organizations throughout the community.
