Carbon emissions, glacial history tie together

It has been nearly 18 billion years since we have seen carbon emissions like we have now, says Dr. John Isbell, professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He talked about the history of ice glaciers for the Polar Lecture at Augustana College. "We will have to reduce our carbon emissions, and it is still going to go up for a while. If we can reduce emissions, we can slow it down."

Students work with residents on neighborhood plan

Students from Dr. Chris Strunk's urban and regional planning class have been working on the first-ever plan for Rock Island's Greenbush neighborhood.

They also worked with Christian Montbriand, a 2015 Augustana grad, and Brandy Howe, an urban planner with the city.

A grad student's top 10 childhood books

Christine Hedlin '11 is a PhD candidate in English at the University of Illinois. After the holidays back home she was inspired to reflect on her favorite childhood reading memories. "I wouldn’t point to any of these moments and say, 'And that’s why I became an English major.' Yet I can also safely say that I wouldn’t be where I am without these kinds of moments." Hedlin majored in English and Spanish and minored in Classics at Augustana.
