Augustana’s CORE scores big with new graduates

New graduates who participated in Augustana's Viking Score program have a message for current students: Use it! The Viking Score helps students track their preparation for life after graduation. It's a simple checklist for each year of college, and each completed task earns points. Students can look at their point totals to see if they're on track.
