A window inside life at Augustana College

Leave Home

Leaving home for college was one of the scariest things to happen to me so far in my life. My family had just moved from my lifetime home of Colorado Springs, Colorado to St. Louis, Missouri only two months before college started. I was going from a new town where I barely knew anyone to […]

A Beautiful Day at Augustana

I don’t think today’s weather could have been anymore perfect today. With some of the free time I took some pictures of natury things on Augie’s campus. Take a gander! !

Hoggy Warty Hogwarts

Last week was my first homecoming at Augustana and it was pretty great! I enjoyed all of the events and everything was a new experience. The bonfire was really nice and the musical performance by Minus Six, featuring alumus Kevin Carton was splendid. I didn’t get to attend the talent show but I heard that […]

Like most people, I wish I had traveled somewhere where there isn’t snow and the […]

Oh Valentines Day, the one day a year that makes couples “official” and single people ever more depressed. For those in a relationship, I would like to say “Congratulations.” I am truly happy that you found someone that takes away the loneliness, and I hope your love never burns out. But this post isn’t directed […]
