A window inside life at Augustana College

Jackman’s Jacket

Yes, the Jackman in my title would be Hugh Jackman. And yes, something that Hugh Jackman wore is at Augustana. I’m generally not a fan of those who fangirl (or boy)–think “Oh my god, he walked over this ground, so, by the transitive property, his bare feet touched it!”–but I do think it’s pretty cool […]

What is “thankfulness” anyway?

Hi everyone! So I’m new here but for my first post I decided to submit my Observer article about thankfulness! If you have any comments, leave ‘em!
