Have you been wondering where you put that dusty old yearbook from your Camrose Lutheran College/Augustana University days? Look no further! As part of the Digitization Program at the University of Alberta Library, yearbooks from Augustana Campus (formerly Augustana University College, Camrose Lutheran University College, and Camrose Lutheran College) have been digitized and are now available on Internet Archive!
Augustana Campus has its origins in 1910, when Norwegian settlers to the Camrose area established Camrose Lutheran College (CLC). For many years it offered quality high school education, and in 1959 it added University of Alberta affiliated courses. It became Alberta’s first private university in 1985, and adopted the name Augustana University College in 1991. Augustana became a University of Alberta faculty in 2004, and the yearbooks ended shortly thereafter.
This collection of yearbooks from 1940 to 2006 gives a glimpse into the vibrant campus life experienced by the students and faculty of CLC and Augustana. Many of the features that still make Augustana campus special today – high-quality teaching in a friendly, caring, residence-based setting – can be seen in the pages of these yearbooks.
