A window inside life at Augustana College

Hi! My name is Chelsea Fray and I am a freshman here at Auggie! So far, I have had a ton of fun becoming involved in Lower Campus Council, STAND/Amnesty, Emerge, Circle K, and hope to become more involved in other groups too. I am probably going to double major in psychology and English; maybe I will minor in Spanish. I am always keeping busy with friends, organizations, and anything else I can possibly fit into my day. I am from Rockford, IL and graduated from Boylan High School. I really love books, movies, and music and you could probably say I am a bit of a nerd. I have never blogged before, but I am excited to start! I plan to write often and keep everyone up to date on my first year here at Augie!!


Sorry that it’s been forever since I blogged last. This term has been crazier than I could have ever expected. But, oh well I enjoy being busy. I have four classes, a job, a social life, and am active in a bunch of activities on campus. Oh, I guess I should probably mention that I […]

Back on campus

So I know it’s been awhile since I had the chance to blog and I apologize for not keeping everyone updated. Finals week was….interesting. I practically lived in the library. The finals themselves were a tiny bit less terrifying than I thought they would be. All the studying paid off and I am happy with […]

Goodbye week 9…Yikes! It’s week 10!?!

Oh geez….oh geez, oh geez, oh geez…… Yup it’s that time of the term…Week 10!! AHHHH!!!! Cue the creepy Halloween music. I have been pretty calm so far this trimester, but now I am feeling the pressure. Unfortunately though, it’s not just me. Pretty much everyone I know is at least a little bit freaked […]

Finally time to relax….AKA Week 8 Is FINALLY OVER!!!!

So week 8 left me extremely exhausted after a quiz, paper, exam, and essay. So come the weekend, decided to kick back, relax, and have some fun. Friday night, my friends and I went to intramural bowling. We are in no way, shape, or form professional bowlers. In fact, we looked down right hilarious! We […]

Week 7…..caffeine is my friend

Wow this last week and a half has been crazy! Tests and papers and concerts and meetings have been brutal! Thankfully, after tomorrow everything should settle down a lot! I got to do a lot of fun stuff over the last few days though. I volunteered at a soup kitchen on Saturday morning at Two […]

A Crazy end to Crazy week 6

This weekend was parents weekend and too be honest, was one of the best parts of my week! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore Auggie. I love the new activities, classes, and people that I have become involved with, but it is not quite the same without my parents, sister, and puppy. I went […]

Week 5 in a nutchell….AKA Oh Geez its MIDTERMS!!!!!!!

So this week was midterm week……. I survived!!!!! I feel like exams were actually a bit anti-climactic. I had been warned by friends and family that college is nothing like high school and, well, they were right. Exams and classes in general are challenging, but they don’t waste my time. I don’t do mindless busy […]

WOW! My first month in a nut shell.

Wow, a month ago today I moved into my room. I live in Seminary Hall and this month has been amazing.  A lot has happened so I think maybe a quick recap would be nice. I have joined STAND/Amnesty, Circle K, Emerge, Lower Campus Council, and a few other great groups. I have met a […]
