They spent $40 million on renovations and now it's time to show them off.
Augustana College is finishing up the last of their big projects.
The center for student life, the inside of Old Main and the football field are all part of the renovations, and we got to check it out.
Old Main is now home to state of the art technology in each of the classrooms.
For the first time since the 1950's, a stained glass window is visible again after being covered by a wall for years. It was the schools chapel back then, now it's a place to read and study. Students like Vanessa Reyes, say it's great.
"It's all really new, I went into Old Main for the first time and it's all really updated and new."
And for school leaders they say updating Old Main gives the inside and outside quite the contrast.
"You can maintain a building's exterior and a classic ness of the building but you have to accommodate for the next generation of students."
Aside from Old Main, a new center for student life now sits on campus welcoming students with a brand new cafeteria and hang out area.
"The CSL is nice, I haven't been to the cafeteria but it's big."
And last but not least, the athletic complex. It's not quite finished up yet but we got a sneak peak from the still under construction press box. The new bleachers and club house will be ready for the first game, and Vanessa says the just might get her to go.
"I don't really go to the games but I think now that it's new I'll check it out."
