A window inside life at Augustana College

Good Grades, Social Life, Enough Sleep…

Hey friends! I learned a very valuable lesson this afternoon as I received the results of my last Psychology test: it’s impossible to be amazing at everything. I heard somewhere that college life basically gives you the choice of two of the following three areas; good grades, social life, enough sleep. I don’t know if […]

On Canceled Classes

This past week, I’ve had three 8:30 classes canceled and one more that lasted only 15 minutes. So, it’s been a pretty good week. Now, I like my professors and I like my classes, so it’s not like I’m thinking “Yay! I don’t have to go and hear about British Literature or Social Theory for […]

Well, hey there, 2013!

As I arrived on campus on Sunday, I was amazed by how quickly I felt back in the swing of things. I had a great three weeks home with my family and friends, but I was beyond excited to be back with my school friends in the place that so quickly became home to me. […]


When I first started at Augie, I really wasn’t sure how I would feel about having to take finals three times per year, but now that I have gone through my first round of them, I am confident in my assumption that it will be easy! In high school, you only have to take finals […]

Fall Break

Finals Week

So as we all know it is now time for finals! All this studying is hectic and I needed a break haha. I hope that everything is going well for you guys and hopefully everyone aces their finals! I can’t wait to go back home and see my family!

Study Abroad . . . Everywhere!

I did not, unfortunately, get to see President Obama in Davenport because I had a class that was kind of important and it is week 10, after all. However, I did get to go to the Study Abroad Fair last Saturday. I moved to the US about four years ago from India, so you could […]


As a first year at Augie, I was able to participate in the Emerge program. Emerge is an 8-week course designed to develop, enhance, and fine-tune leadership skills. With the advice from many professional speakers, a group service project, and an intense high-ropes course, myself and the other Emergees were able to make new friends […]
