Prospective Students

Life doesn’t happen in a box. Neither does learning. That is why Austin College created an academic community where living and learning are one and the same, where every experience is a chance to acquire knowledge, shape your views, and make a difference. This is a place for students who are adventurous, curious, and ready to take on the world. Classes aren’t simply lectures, they are conversations. Professors don’t only ask what the book says, they ask what you think. You won’t just learn how documentaries are made, you will make one yourself. For some, a large university might be the right choice. But if you seek something more personal, Austin College may be the place for you.

“Austin College… is doing the essential work of producing the enlightened, responsible, creative people with moral compasses who make democracy work.”

– Loren Pope, Colleges That Change Lives.
