About Us is a service of the Augustana Web Guild.

The Augustana Web Guild was founded in the spring of 1997 by a group of Augustana College students. Originally chartered as a small student organization to help students learn about the web, the Guild grew quickly as a model for what professional student organizations could accomplish.

Under the supervision of Augustana College's Director of Marketing, the students set out to explore the career field offered by the rapidly developing world wide web. That core of founding students was also largely responsible for the Augustana College's web site (1997-2005), which was ranked among the finest higher education web sites in the United States for many years.

Shortly after the group started, they decided to become self-funding rather than ask the school for funds like most groups do. So they started developing websites for community organizations to fund the equipment needs and operations. To maintain annual income and to best serve their clients, they had the innovative idea of doing website updates on an annual contract with their clients… and they now have over 200 clients on contract.
