3 Education is a life long journey. It involves the whole person. At Augustana we understand that educating the whole person includes more than university studies. It includes learning from our Elders, the natural world, family, friends, community, culture, and traditions. In keeping with this spirit, the Aboriginal Students Office works to support the whole person. It aims to support the emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual needs of Aboriginal students on campus. Through culturally appropriate supports and services, laughter, warmth, and an understanding staff, the Aboriginal Student Office assists and encourages students on their educational journeys at Augustana. The office works to ensure Aboriginal students voices are welcomed, respected, encouraged, and heard. It seeks to improve the campus overall awareness and sensitivity towards Aboriginal peoples thereby enriching the intellectual and cultural life on campus. We welcome you to our diverse community and invite you to continue your educational journey with us at Augustana.

4 Augustana Campus Located one hour southeast of Edmonton in the city of Camrose, Augustana is a small, rural campus of the University of Alberta where students are known by name. With a student population of 1,000, classes at Augustana are small allowing students to receive personalized attention from faculty and staff. The small campus community and approachable faculty and staff help to make a student s time at Augustana a success. At Augustana, learning is not limited to the classroom. Our campus offers four U of A degree programs: Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Management, Bachelor of Music, and a Bachelor of Science, with over 30 majors and minors to choose from. The campus is also home to numerous activities and students are encouraged to participate in clubs, sports, choirs, student government, and residence life events. Students may participate in cross-cultural and international opportunities as well. At Augustana we learn from each other. It is a place to make friendships that will last 28 a lifetime.

To recognize the academic accomplishments of graduating First Nation, Métis and Inuit students, during official University Convocation Ceremonies, Augustana honours Aboriginal students who wish to participate by presenting them with an Eagle Feather. The Eagle Feather is awarded to the graduate by an Elder in order to recognize and celebrate the end of a student s educational journey at Augustana, and gives strength and blessings to the journeys ahead. The Office also helps students access the numerous student services and supports available on campus.

6 Campus Connections Augustana s Aboriginal Students Office is closely connected to the Aboriginal Student Services Centre (ASSC) located on the North Campus in Edmonton. The ASSC celebrates this union by inviting Augustana students to access their services and attend their numerous academic, social and cultural events. The Aboriginal Students Office helps students access opportunities at the ASSC. This way Augustana students may experience the unique opportunities offered by the larger North Campus while enjoying the advantages that come from living and studying in a smaller community. Aboriginal Student Services Centre University of Alberta, Edmonton Campus Phone: Website: Moving to Camrose At Augustana, we feel living in residence with people from different backgrounds, lifestyles and values is an important part of the university experience. We make moving to Camrose easy by providing all first year, full-time, single students with guaranteed housing. Other options are available for students from neighbouring communities, those over 21 years of age, those studying part-time, students with children, and students who have completed their first year of post-secondary studies. For more information, contact Residence Services at Declaring Aboriginal Status First Nation, Métis and Inuit students are encouraged to self-identify or declare their Aboriginal status when completing their application for admission to the university. Declaring your Aboriginal ancestry allows Augustana to better understand and support its diverse student population.

8 Kyla Kotchea It s funny how quickly you can adapt to a place and make it your home. I am Slavey/Dene and originally from the small town of Fort Nelson, British Columbia which is approximately a 13 hour drive from Camrose. Being away from home was hard at first but at some point Augustana became a second home to me. One thing I have always enjoyed about my time at Augustana is that it s a small community with a lot of diversity. Also, the professors here are open and welcoming. Because it is such a small campus it makes it easy for them to get to know you, rather than you fading into a sea of students. In 2010, I graduated from Augustana with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Biology and with a minor in Chemistry. The Aboriginal Students Office did not come about until my second our students their journeys year and when it did I found a place to come to for help. They provide an unbeliev able amount of support; in my opinion when you are leaving home for post-secondary education that requires a long distance move, support is a major factor to success. With the help of my family and the assistance of the Aboriginal Students Office, my time at Augustana has been an incredible journey. I have gone to Costa Rica as part of a Conservation Biology course, I have had the oppor tunity to work on campus as a student Animal Care Assistant and all the while learning to be a confident, independent individual. Now that I ve graduated I know I want to work with animals. There are a lot of things to be afraid of in this world, but getting an education is not one of them. Give yourself a chance and maybe you can learn things about yourself that you never knew existed.

9 leave with my third child decided to attend classes at Augustana. There, I remembered how much I enjoyed learning. Olivia Buffalo I am a Cree and Nisga a Aboriginal that is registered under Treaty Six with the Samson Cree Nation. I am in my final year of a Bachelor of Arts Degree that majors in Psychology and minors in Mathematics. Being a mother of three, I have accomplished my goal of maintaining my status as a student. I started my post-secondary education at Maskwachees Cultural College within my community, where I was able to take my new born to class. I then transferred to the U of A, Edmonton Campus after having my second child and experienced a culture shock due to transitioning into the large classes. I took a break from school and while on maternity Being a successful student with many roles, one of the challenges I have overcome is time management. When everything runs smoothly, I have enough energy to concentrate on the task for my current role (e.g., student, mother, wife, etc.). Taking time to plan my schedule for both student and home life makes it easier for me. I have to thank my husband and family for encouraging me to continue my studies and for keeping my stress levels down. What I enjoy the most about Augustana is the welcoming feeling; the instructors treat you with respect and will take time out of their busy schedule to help you. Also you know who the Dean and the staff are because they take the time to smile and greet you, plus the Aboriginal Students Office is always open to just sit and talk. My advice for any student, mother or not, is to not be afraid to ask for help. Post-secondary education is hard at first, but with time and practice, it becomes easier and enjoyable.

10 Kristopher Statnyk H ello! I grew up in rural Alberta spending most of my youth in the agricultural town of Mayerthorpe. I am of First Nation descent and a band member of Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation in Old Crow, Yukon where my mom was brought up. With their support I have been fortunate to pursue a post-secondary education. As I recall, my educational journey began early on in Junior High. I realized then that I would not make a good farmer nor did I want to be one. I set my sights on Augustana as an avenue to broaden my horizons with a liberal arts degree. Upon my arrival to Augustana, I was pleased with the close knit community which made the transition an easy one. In my four years at Augustana I have been able to grow into an independent individual. The strong and growing Aboriginal community has also provided me with a close connection to my culture. Over the years I have volunteered at the Aboriginal Students Office as a student mentor and helped organize and participate in cultural events on campus. Overall, the campus community at Augustana is supportive towards its Aboriginal students by creating an environment that provides opportunities for personal and academic achievement. I am grateful for my experiences at Augustana as they have made me the person I am today. The unique characteristics of Augustana paired with its commitment to providing quality education has brought out in me a renewed mindset, new found interests, and a developed skill set to prepare me for future goals. I have set my sights once again on higher education and will be attending law school next fall. For incoming students or those of you who are pondering a post-secondary education, I would like to leave with you the words of the poet William Butler Yeats who once wrote education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

11 Chantai Minet Hi! My name is Chantai Minet and I am a second year student-athlete at Augustana. I am a member of the Teslin Tlingit Council and grew up and graduated high school in Whitehorse, Yukon. I have always been into athletics, but it wasn t until grade eight that I truly took up a passion for basketball. By the time that I was in my final year of high school, I had chosen a career path as a Sports Psychologist and I knew that I wanted to play post-secondary basketball. community appeal of Augustana; the campus is small enough that it was easy to make great friends, and by then end of the year every face was familiar. Another great aspect of a small school like this one is that you are able to obtain tremendous help from your professors. I personally pride myself in my academic performance so having the resources that Augustana provides was very helpful to me this year. I found Augustana through one of my coaches, who also happened to be one of my personal mentors. After my first visit on campus, and meeting some of the people that embodied the essence of Augustana, I knew that it was the place where I wanted to pursue my post-secondary studies. I have completed a year of school and basketball at Augustana and I still stand strong behind my decision to attend this university. I like the our students their journeys Growing up being involved in my community was extremely important to me. Augustana provided me with many opportunities to interact and volunteer in the Camrose community. Being a student at Augustana has allowed me to expand my knowledge, deepen my relationships and community involvement, and allowed me to pursue my dreams of getting a post-secondary degree while playing high level sports.
