A window inside life at Augustana College

Curiosity got the best of me tonight

Even though the lacrosse programs here at Augustana are in their early stages, I could not help but wonder if any of the teams’ accomplishments were Division III records. The men’s team found the record book under the scoring defense category for their 2012 campaign when they recorded a 5.14 average good for 13th best. […]

Lacrosse season is upon us

Earlier this week I worked the men’s lacrosse home-opener inputting live stats from the pressbox at Thorson-Lucken Field. That chilly evening saw the Vikings set several records in their 20-1 win over Dubuque. The single game record of 31 points was upped to 33 as Augie scored 20 goals and assisted 13 of them, which […]

Reflection of a College Spring Break

Like most people, I wish I had traveled somewhere where there isn’t snow and the […]

Takeshita-dori, Temples, and Tons of Fun!

This spring break, I traveled over 6000 miles with the Augustana Symphonic Band to Japan! We spent an amazing 12 days on tour (well, really ten if you subtract for travel) exploring Osaka, Kyoto, Hakone, and Tokyo! I don’t want to overload you all with a giant picture dump, but I have a few that […]

An inside look at the Field Museum

This spring break, I had the amazing opportunity to attend Members Night at the Field Museum in Chicago! I am a big museum fan, especially when it comes to the Field Museum (don’t get me started on their animal collection) so it was like Disney World to me! Apparently, I’m not alone in my excitement […]

Top Reasons To Study Abroad In Africa

Spring Term 2015, they are offering a trip to Africa (an awesome place and happens to be the program to which I’ve been accepted). The application is STILL OPEN and will be open until further notice.  Hopefully, even more students students […]

Someone Might Read This

I imagine Augustana student Dan Murray reading this in his bathrobe. He’s got a fresh cup of hot cocoa with some marshmallows melting upon it and some sprinkles of peppermint to give it that perfect hint of Winter coziness. He’s clean shaven at the moment, but he’s considering not shaving to appear more mature to […]
