Founders’ Day

The photo above shows the founds of the Augustana Synod and Augustana College and Theological Seminary in 1885, the 25th anniversary of the founding of the synod and the college.

April 27 marks Founders’ Day at Augustana.  First celebrated in 1902, at the instigation of President Gustav Andreen, the day was intended to honor the founders of Augustana College and its Swedish heritage. In honor of Founders’ Day in this 150th year of Augustana College, we invite you to take a look at some biographies of Augustana’s founders, found on the 150th website.
