A window inside life at Augustana College

An Amazing Experience

As the school year drew to a close, I began to get more and more excited for my trip to Florida. I was one of 6 that were selected to partake in a week long internship at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind in St. Augustine, Florida. I was the only sophomore (going […]

Starting New

It’s a little weird not being in High School anymore. I would be watching TV and suddenly remember that I am not an High School-er, I’m in college now. Now that some of my days are extremely busy and others are extremely boring I have been getting used to this new-found freedom of stupid busy work […]

Not Just a Bunch of Meetings

Summer Connection was a whirlwind of new faces, tons of information and a lot of fun.  I met so many people and there is no way I can remember all of their faces or names.  Every experience helped me validate that I had indeed made the right decision by choosing Augustana.  I am not going […]

Today, I realized this wasn’t the case. There are all types of people here. Jocks, klutzes, the obnoxiously loud […]

Summer Connection!

From the ice-breaker to the ice cream today was a blast! And to top it off, nothing/nobody was even remotely as scary as I was prepared for In the morning everyone seemed just as nervous and awkward as I was but all it took was sitting next to someone and simply saying “Hi, I’m Rebecca” […]

Augustana: Making the world a little bit smaller

Who do you run into when you are 932 miles away from Augustana? Your communications advisor of course! To start off my summer, I visited friends I made in DC last year. We traveled from DC to Maryland to Pennsylvania to Delaware. While we were in visiting Philadelphia for the day, I met up with […]
