Augustana Students Arrive Back In Sioux Falls

January 31, 2011, 11:01 PM by Ben Dunsmoor

Augustana Students Arrive Back In Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, SD - Members of the Augustana College Band are back home after a three week trip to Egypt. 

More than 40 of the 70 students arrived at the Sioux Falls Airport around 9:30 p.m. Monday night. They were in Egypt for their winter term learning about the culture and government.

They were supposed to play five concerts, but only played four because of the protests and political unrest that broke out in the country during their trip. Some of the protests happened outside their hotel, but some of the students say they appreciated being part of history.

"It was really cool experiencing the beginning of this and being able to say, hey, I was there when the revolution was happening," Augustana band member Shandi Hopkins said. 

"We got to see some protests right outside our hotel, but it was peaceful and they're just fighting for democracy," Augustana freshman Brian Hokeness said as he got off the plane.

The rest of the students are scheduled to arrive back in Sioux Falls Tuesday afternoon.
