Welcome!

The award winning, Good Fit T-shirt photo contest invites students to express their creativity and win $1,000 scholarship.

The contest is for prospective students planning to enroll in the fall (seniors in high school or transfer students currently enrolled at another institution).

Each year, submissions open by Aug. 1 and close Feb. 1. Voting continues until Feb. 15.

Students wear an Augustana T-shirt (provided to campus visitors — though any Augustana shirt will work) and take a photo to submit in one of four categories. Selections are made by admissions staff, student ambassadors and other college personnel.

A fifth award is available in the people's choice category based on votes by the general population. Last year the winner received almost 5,000 votes!

Honorable Mentions

It's University of Wisconsin tradition to sit on Abe's lap when you graduate- since I'm not following in my mom's badger footsteps (to her chagrin) by choosing Augie, I figured I'd let her see me up there in blue and gold.
Who wants to be a Titan when you can be a Viking! Augie is a #GoodFit for me!

Diving into Augustana; fall of 2019.

Honorable Mentions

Did you "snow" that the Mississippi River banks near Augustana are a popular destination for year round mountain biking? In fact, Sylvan Island trails are just minutes away from campus! That's another reason Augustana is a great fit for me!
Ready to ski into fall as a #FutureViking #GoodFit
