    8.3 /10

    The size, the location, and they have my major. Only 2 schools in Minnesota offer a music Business program and Augsburg just felt right. It's also an ELCA which is what I grew up in. So that was an added bonus on top.

    Course Curriculum :

    I love the curriculum at Augsburg. I'm doing hands-on work that I'd be going in my career. Our liberal arts education curriculum is also wonderful. Since we're an ELCA school we take 2 religion courses but religion isn't forced into anyone. The classes are intro level which I think is perfect because then everyone has a base understanding of the three major faiths.
