A window inside life at Augustana College

U.S. Air Force Academy Conference

Last week, I had the opportunity to travel to Colorado to go to the National Character and Leadership Symposium – “Walk the Walk: Leaders in Ethical Action” at the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA). While I’ve been to a few leadership conferences before, I learned more at this conference than any I’ve experience before — […]

Bittersweet Endings and New Beginnings

It’s Spring Break which means that Spring Term brings the last 10 weeks of my senior year and my last 10 weeks at Augustana before I enter the real world. I think the experience is bittersweet. Only in college are you able to live 10-15 minutes away from all your friends and experience so many […]

While on the site, it recommends a song to play while listening to the rain. […]

Reasons Why I Love Living in Dorms.

On your way back from a friends house around 1:30 am, you try to pick up a pizza, are informed the lobby is closed and that it can only be delivered and the pizza guy says “So, is this going to Westerlin?”   When you walk in the building at 2am there is a security […]

Letter #4: Dear Mama,

Letter #4 February 9th, 2012 (Present) Dear Mama, I am glad that I got to see you last weekend, and I am even more hurt that we got bad test results back and know that the situation is worse that we had thought. Despite that, however, I am feeling more confident than ever that we […]
