High school students and their parents are invited to Augustana College on September 27 and October 18 for Fall Visit Days.

Designed as a one-day experience, a Visit Day provides an opportunity for students and families to get an overview of the college. Those who attend will receive admissions, scholarship and financial assistance information. Events run from 9 a.m.-2:15 p.m.

Augustana College will award three scholarships (one $1,000 award and two $500 awards) to students who attend a Visit Day this fall.

According to Meghan Cooley, director of recruitment communications at Augustana, scholarship eligibility is based on a 500-word essay. “We encourage all students coming to Fall Visit Days to write an essay prior to their visit,” said Cooley, a 1999 Augustana graduate. “This year’s topic question is ‘If I could open up my autobiography to page 137, what would I read on that page?’”
