Originally named The Lutheran Normal School and designated for the purpose of educating teachers, the college received its current name in 1918 after merging with Augustana College in Canton. However, the college identifies its founding year as 1860, the same as its identically-named sister-school in Rock Island, Illinois. Consequentially, it celebrated its sesquicentennial during the 2010-2011 academic year.
Currently, Augustana offers Bachelor of Arts degrees in more than 50 major fields of study, as well as several pre-professional programs, most notably nursing. Students also participate in multiple musical ensembles and NCAA athletic programs. The college consistently receives high rankings among other Midwestern schools from publications such as The Princeton Review and U.S. News and World Report.
