A window inside life at Augustana College

Putting a good spin on not so good things

In the sports information business, as in life, it is necessary that we are always able to find the good in every situation…including a 23-1 loss. Luckily, Augustana was on the 23 side of that game and I got to write a much more upbeat story. However, I was curious how the other side of […]

My First College Field Trip!

Hello, everyone! I apologize for having neglected posting for several weeks now. Spring term is in full swing! Believe it or not, I went on my first college field trip today to the Blackhawk Special Education Center in East Moline as part of my EDUC 340 class.

All Of Me For You

I was checking out the Itunes store a couple days ago to look for some new and current songs for my WAUG radio show. I was scrolling through the songs until I arrived to John Legend’s “All of Me.” After giving the song a quick listen to, I decided it would be in my best […]

My opportunities in the sports information office

As many of you know, I am completing an internship in the sports information office here on the campus of Augustana. My main responsibilities include writing stories following every men’s and women’s lacrosse game, regardless of if it is home or away. Along with those stories I am also given opportunities to write various stories […]

How other stories stack up

I finally got a chance to visit the Mount St. Joseph athletic website to see how their write-up of the game that Augustana beat them in triple overtime compared to my own version. I think that it goes without saying that I got to write on the better end of the affair. Getting the chance […]

Picture Day

In high school, I was under the impression that after I graduated I would never have to deal with a “Picture Day” again. I was wrong. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately for some people, there are still picture days in college, or at least at Augie. Today, I am supposed to take my composite picture for […]

Experience

This week I had the opportunity to write stories for three of Augustana’s varsity teams. In my last blog I mentioned our women’s lacrosse home-opener. The women won 15-8 over DePauw and moved to 5-0 with each of their wins coming in a different state. Here’s the link for the women’s lacrosse story: http://www.athletics.augustana.edu/news/2014/3/21/WLAX_0321140203.aspx?path=wlax. I […]

Same name, two different sports

Friday night marked the first home game for the women’s lacrosse team this season. The evening also marked an attempt to explain to our rookie Statcrew spotter how the women’s game was going to be different than to the two men’s games he had called stats for. Instead of just asking what the differences were […]

Graduation is in 67 days and we all know that those days are going to fly by! Seeing as I am not going to grad school I will be entering the real world. I’ve spent the last few weeks or so applying for jobs and internships at various places around the country. I have a […]
