What is StepUP?

Most of Augsburg is familiar with the StepUP program. To many outsiders it is a group or clique of students who are drug addicts or alcoholics. They can be seen around campus, especially around Oren Gateway Center, the dorm which houses StepUP students. What most students don’t know is that StepUP is known across the country for being the largest sober collegiate recovery program. There are other similar programs at schools like Texas Tech, The New School in New York, and Rutgers University in New Jersey. The program has aided over 600 students in the past 16 years.
