A window inside life at Augustana College

I am a junior at Augustana, majoring in Spanish and religion and minoring in anthropology. I hail from Oregon, Wis., and am a proud Packer, Badger and Brewer fan! On campus, I am involved in Alpha Phi Omega, Harvest Bible Chapel small group, Interfaith Understanding, Jenny Lind Vocal Ensemble, Gospel Choir, and I am an Admissions Amabassador as well. I enjoy the business of school life, but in my free time I like to run, spend time with family and friends and go on adventures. I am excited for my next two years at Augie, and look forward to sharing them with you!
