Tjenare (as we say in Sweden).
My name is Isac Zia, and I’m one of the international students here at Augie. Since I’m only here for a year, I’m a ”non-degree-seeking student” which is awesome. This means that I can take the courses I’m interested in and basically just chill through them. Right now I’m taking Calc II, AmHistory and Business writing – a nice, classical liberal arts set up.
I’m unemployed here, since I’d rather do fun stuff here since I’m only here for a limited amount of time. I’m in Wennerberg choir and – most important – Heywire, which is fantastic. For those who do not know, Heywire is this awesome group of people making Improvisational Theatre.
This blog will be all about the international experience. What do I do? What do I like? Any surprises cultural wise? YOU NAME IT! I’ll also try to keep you updated with hilarious Swedish humor-clips.

Tjena! Long time, no see I guess. I’ve been busy doing very important things, like sleeping, socializing and just being me. Anyhow. Now I’m back, and I’ll try to be better. But I do not promise anything. Ok? So – back to business. It’s Christmas time, so I guess I have to wish you all […]

I was invited by my beloved Erek Bell, together with my beloved Swedish friends Alexandra and Eric, to celebrate turkey-day with them. And so I did. Wednesday: We drove to Springfield, mother Bell had made an awesome Lasagne (I […]
God kväll, At the moment I’m in Springfield and chilling with Erek’s and his family (together with two other Swedes). I expected to see a bunch of Yellow creatures running around in this town, with Bart, Marge and the others, but so far I’ve only met Erek’s dad Homer and the rest of his family. […]
Hallihallå I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving so much. Or should I call it the holiday where all students get to brag about how good their parents/grandparents food is? Every single one I’ve talked about Thanksgiving with have told me that ”My mom makes the best turkey”. Anyhow. I am going to Springfield for Thanksgiving, since […]
Tjenare allihop! I will describe this week with pictures. I met Erin. She is this awesome girl, who is very competitive and loves to play cribbage. Erin taught me how to play cribbage (friday). So I played cribbage with Anisa, Erin, Eman and Mike. It was pretty damn fun. Denna meningen är på svenska. Efter […]
Men hallå! Today I wanted to talk about a little thing that annoys me a lot: the homework system! I am not a hater of homework. I understand that it is important to study during the terms to be able to learn in a good way. What bothers me is the way you get graded […]
Tjenare! This blog is about me and my year here at Augustana. Since I’m an International Student who is only here for a year, it’s a bit different than the rest of the Augie Students. This is because of one big reason: I live by the expression that “You only gap once” – I will […]
