HISTORY AND AIMS
T h e educationai purposes of Augsburg College and Theological
Seminary spring from the conviction that Christianity is rhe fundamental force for good in human life. All rhe aims of rhe College,
as well as those of the Seminary, are bound together by this principle. To express more distinctty the meaning of this, the following statement of aims has been formulated by the College faculty:
T o lead the studemt to a deeper understanding and pe~sonal
realization of the truth and power of the Chr3stian Gospel, to
the end that he may become an effective participant in the
evangelical and missionary task of the Church and an earnest
advocate of the Christian way of life both for the individual and

College, is done on the basis of Christianity. The students who
come are invited to take up their college work with the distinct

course was thoroughly revised in conformity with modern developments. As a result of this and of subsequent growth, the strictly
classical course has been largely modified and supplemented by
social and scientific studies and a more general emphasis upon the
study of the humanities. During 'the past ten years Majors' have
been added in the fields of Business Administration, Sckiology,
Physical Education, Music, and Home Economics. Until 1921
only men were admitted, but in that year coeducation was introduced.
In the Theological Seminary there has likewise been introduction
of new courses and enlargement of the faculty. Standards of admission have been raised so that a bachelor's degree or equivalent
is now the required scholastic preparation. While the Theological
Seminary has its own organization, the Seminary and the College
function in close cooperation. Long experience has proved such
an arrangement mutually wholesome and stimulating.
Five Presidents have served Augsburg during the course of its
history. The terms of oflice of two of these cover a span of over
half a century. The first President was August Weenaas, who
served from 1869 to 1876. He was succeeded by Georg Sverdrup,
I 876 t o 1907. Sven Oftedal served from 1907 to 191I and was
followed by George Sverdru~,whose term extended from I 9 I I to
1937. H. N. Hendrickson served as Acting President from 1937
until the election of Bernhard Christensen in 1938.
From I 870 to I 890, Augsburg was supported by the NorwegianDanish Lutheran Conference. The merger of that church body
with two others, in 1890, resulted in the aililiation of Augsburg
with the newly created United Norwegian Lutheran Church. Due
to ditFerences concerning the control of Augsburg a division arose,
and in 1897 congregations whose sympathies were deeply rooted in
Augsburg formed the Luthcrzn Free Church. The resulting close
association, in educational and spiritual activity, of Augsburg and
the Lutheran Free Church has been marked by complete harmony
of purpose and ideals for more than haIf a century.
The control exercised by the Lutheran Free Church is indirect.
The Annual Conference of the Church nominates the members
of the Augsburg Corporation and the Board of Trustees. The Cor-
poration through the Board of Trustees exercises direct control
over property, finance, and personnel. Academic control is vested
in the President and the Faculty.
In addition to the income from student tuition and fees, which
has materially increased with the growth and development of the
College, the chief hancial support of the institution comes from
the congregations of the Lutheran Free Church. In recent years a'
growing circle of friends also outside the Lutheran Free Church,
both alumni and others, have contributed financially t o the support of the school. Augsburg welcomes and invites such support on
the part of all who believe in her program of vital Christian education.
Augsburg College is a member of the Association of American
college& the National Lutheran Educational Conference, the Association of Minnesota Colleges, and the State Council of Minnesota Colleges.
BUILDINGS AND EQUIPMENT
Augsburg College and Theological Seminary is located in the
Riverside Park area of South Minneapolis, across the Mississippi
River from the University of Minnesota and within walking distance of the main business section of the city. Science Hall, containing the administration oaces, is located at the corner of Seventh Street and Twenty-first Avenue South. Augsburg students
have the advantage of getting their college education in a metropolitan center pulsating with industrial, social, and cultural activities. They have access to libraries, museums, and art collections.
They may hear the best music and lectures. They may contact
modern life at one of its focal points.
The Main, erected in 1900, contains the Chapel, the Library,
the Seminary classrooms and osces, and a number of college classrooms and ogces.

fireproof dormitory affording living quarters for about 150 men.
On the ground floor of this building is the college cafeteria and
Sivertsen Hall, acquired in 1939, is a splendid dormitory accommodating about 50 women. Plans are under way for the
erection of an addition to this dormitory.
Morton Hall, erected in 1888, and Edda House, purchased and
remodeled in 1948, are smaller dormitories for women, each accommodating about 2 0 students.
During 1947 two new buildings were added, both located on

acquired by purchase, and remodeled to serve the needs of the
Quite a number of dwellings have been acquired in recent years
in the expanded campus area, which are used for faculty and
student housing until this need can be met through more permanent structures. Also three temporary housing units have been
erected by the Federal Works Agency on the campus ground.
The President's Home, a beautiful residence of modern architectural design, located at the south of the Square, was erected in
Some years ago the beginning was made of a Museum for the
school. Members of the Alumni Association have presented manv
valuable gifts. There are several collections: a Madagascar Col-
lection, a Santal Collection, and a considerable collection of rare
minerals, curios, etc. Contributions should be sent to Prof. L.
In the spring of 1929 the Augsburg Archive Society was organized. The purpose of this organization is to gather and preserve
documents, books, and other articles of historical value. To house
the Archives a fire-proof room which was provided in the Main
has been replaced recently by a large room on the ground floor of
Science Hall. Here are now found a fine collection of periodicals,
old and rare books, manuscripts, letters, and pictures, and also
about ~ , o o ovolumes of Norwegian-American literature, affording rich resources for scholarly research. Further contributions
to the Archives should be sent to Prof. L. Lillehei, Archivist.

STUDENT COMMUNITY LIFE
The influences which mould life and character on a college campus are of many kinds. While the exercises of classroom, laboratory,
and library form the organizing basis of college activity, they need
to be supplemented by other than academic forces. These intangible
but very real supplementary influences have much to do with
creating the spirit of an institution. At Augsburg definite emphasis is placed upon the maintenance of a wholesome spirit of
Christian community living. Students are urged to give conscious
attention to this personal and spiritual side of their development
and thus contribute toward the prevalence of a vital and happy
Christian atmosphere on the campus.
I t is the earnest desire of those who direct the policies of Augsburg that the institution may constantly be permeated by an at-
mosphere in which the quest for Truth as it is in Christ is prayerfully fostered in the life of each student.
In order to help toward attaining these goals the faculty and
students gather in chapel every day for a brief meditation upon
the Word of God and the deepest needs of the human soul. Regular attendance is expected of all students. All students are required to register for two class hours per week in one of the courses
&red in Religion. There are numerous voluntary religious activities in which students are urged to participate. Spiritual Emphasis Week is heId twice each year. It is assumed that every Augsburg student will find a church home in Minneapolis and attend
its services regularly.
Augsburg's location in Minneapolis gives its students unique
opportunities to make use of some of the finest educational and
cultural advantages which the Northwest has to offer. Excellent
art collections are to be found in The Minneapolis Institute of
Arts and the Walker Art Gallery. The Twin City libraries are
large and extensive in their services. The Historical Museum in
St. Paul gives access to large collections of historical material.
In the Twin Cities are located both the University of Minnesota
and several colleges, affording contacts which are conducive to intellectual and cultural stimulus and development.
Regular convocation programs are held a t Augsburg &roughout
the year. These programs aim to acquaint the campus community
with outstanding personalities and problems in various fields. A
wide range of interests is covered, including the scientzc, political,
social, religious, and artistic.
STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES
The coordination of the many ~ersonnelservices is the responsibility of a twelve-member Faculty Council headed by the Dean
of the College. Individual members of the Council or subcommittees direct the various activities, which include academic and
personal counseling, housing and food service, recreation and
health, employment and placement, and student activities.
The Luther League, the Mission Society, the Lutheran Student
Association, the National Student Association Council, and a
large number of departmental and special interest clubs are directly supervised by the Student Council. A Student-Faculty committee of eight members promotes and supervises student activities
serving as a liaison between the Faculty and Student Councils.
The counseling program for new students begins as soon as the
Admissions and Scholarship Committee has approved their applications. All available data concerning each prospective student are
combined with test results obtained during Freshman Week for
use during registration.
Each new student is assigned a faculty counselor, generally on
the basis of mutual academic interest. This assignment continues
for the first two years. At a scheduled period during Freshman
Week, the student meets with his counselor for registration. At
least three additional counseling periods are scheduled for each
semester. Whenever he feels the need, the student is encouraged
to see his counselor for help to discover and develop as fully as p a sible his latent abilities. Upper-class students are counseled by
their major advisers.
Additional counseling is provided for the students by the use
of student counselors. Each entering Freshman is assigned a student counselor, who works with a faculty counselor in each instance. The program is organized by a Student Counselor Steering Committee working with the Personnel Committee.
Adjustment to college is one of several subjects introduced during Freshman Week. The various phases of this important problem of personal adjustment are given thorough study in the Orientation course which meets one hour per week throughout the
first semester. Vocational possibilities within the divisional organization of the College are presented and course sequences are discussed. Personal and health probl&s, social adjustment, vocational and educational aims are examined from the point of view
of individual needs.
Special problems in counseling are referred to the Personnel
Committee, which is composed of a member of the Department of
Christianity, the Registrar, a professor of Psychology, the Director
of Physical Education, the Dean of Women, and the Dean of Men,
who serves as chairman. The administration of the counseling
program is the work of the Personnel Committee.
A system of referral makes available to any student the resources
and special abilities of the entire faculty. Through all phases of
the counseling program, the primary aim is the welfare of the individual student.
The personal problems of the students are dealt with in the light
of the following spiritual purposes and ideals. It is expected
of each student that his life, conduct, and influence, both on and
off campus, shall be worthy of a member of a Christian College.
Those who do not feel drawn to this quality of life and to the
fellowship in which it is nourished should not seek to be enrolled
at Augsburg. A truly Christian spirit and environment must be
the product of the united effort and prayer of faculty, students,
The Christian ideals of Augsburg give no room for such demoralizing practices as gambling, drinking, frequenting of public
dances, indiscriminate attendance at movies, and objectionable
card playing. Students enrolled at Augsburg must, therefore, not
participate in such practices.
Augsburg reserves the right t o dismiss or to discipline any student who is not amenable t o advice and direction. The school likewise reserves the right to dismiss any student whose general conduct or influence is unwholesome. Such a student may be removed
although no formal charge is made against him.
"No man is a hypocrite in his pleasures." To learn to enjoy the
right form of recreational activities is an important aspect of preparation for life. A t Augsburg there is a definite attempt to encourage the formation of helpful recreational habit-patterns, not
only as regards the definitely planned play-program supervised and
directed by the Department of Physical Education, but as regards
the use of leisure time in general. Wholesome social activities of
many kinds are fostered and encouraged. Also in this area the goal
is "to see all things through the eyes of Christ."
The Stdent Center, in the new Science Hall, serves as a social,
cultural, and conference area for students. During the day, students use the Center as a general reading and committee room.
The campus post o6ce is adjacent to the Student Center, as
are also The Student Council Room and The Echo and The Augsburgian o0ices.
The Prayer Chapel in the tower of the new Science Hall is open
at all times for quiet meditation and prayer. Smaller groups may
request the use of the chapel for devotional meetings.
A room for off campus men is located in Sverdrup-Oftedal
Memorial Hall and for off campus women in Morton Hall.
All students who are not living at home are required to room in
the College dormitories, unless permission to room elsewhere is
granted by one of the Deans. Such permission must be secured
before final arrangements are made.
Residents in dormitories are required to take their meals in the
College dining hall except those students who are employed away
from the College. The charges for room and board are payable in
The residence halls are open for the occupancy of students on
the day preceding the beginning of registration. Temporary arrangements may be made for students who have permission to
come early to seek employment. Meals are served commencing on
the morning of the first. day of registration.
Dormitories are officially closed daring all vacations within
twenty-four hours after the last session of -class work except by
special arrangement with the Deans.
Dormitory residents are held responsible for breakage or injury
to the furniture and furnishings.
The College believes in the educational value of group living
under faculty supervision. It is expected that life in the dormitories should foster the development of Christian character, selfcontrol, and consideration for the rights of others.
This dormitory for men, erected in 1938, accommodates about
students. The modern arrangement of the dormitory, with its
suites of two rooms for every three or four students, helps to make
this an inviting College home for men. The rooms are furnished
except for bedding and linen.
The college operates a cottage plan of supervised residences for
women, pending the building of the planned additions to Sivertsen
College-operated residences for women include Sivertsen Hall,
2323 South Sixth Street, which houses fifty; Morton Hall, 730
rznd Avenue South, which houses twenty; Edda House, 2222 7%
Street South, which houses twenty-four.
Rooms are furnished except for bedding and linens. Laundry
facilities are provided in each unit.
Assignment of rooms is made after the first of August. An
attempt is made to assign the rooms so as to meet the student
interests and needs, and to create congenial housing units.
Sivertsen Hall, acquired in 1939 through the generosity of Dr.
Ivar Sivertsen, accommodates about fifty Freshman women students. The first floor has a large reception room used for social
functions. In the basement are a kitchenette and a recreation room.
Applications for rooms should be sent as soon as a student is
notified of his acceptance. Applicants will be assigned to dormitory
rooms in the order in which their applications are received.
Rooms are assigned to present occupants of the dormitories by
August first. After that, they are assigned to new applicants in
the order of application.
