Hello!! I’m Alicia Oken and I am currently a junior at Augustana.
I’m majoring in political science, communication studies and multimedia journalism and mass communication. Cross your fingers I can actually get that all in within the next two years!
I can’t stand just sitting around my room, so I am involved in a lot of activities on campus and I absolutely love every single minute of it! Since this is a get to know me kind of blog post, I shall tell you everything I do here at Augustana. I am WAUG’s program director and the Augustana Observer opinions editor. I just started these positions last year and I absolutely enjoy getting paid to do something I would do for free. For WAUG, I also DJ twice a week for my two radio shows. Last year, I helped start Club Tennis here at Augustana and I’m actively involved with that. I played varsity tennis here my freshman year but didn’t make it my sophomore year. So my friends and I started a club here for those who love tennis as much as we do. So far it has been super successful, which is really fantastic.
I am also a member of concert band, where I play oboe. I love music, so I joined Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI), which is a national fraternity of women who are also interested in music. I’m a junior senator for Student Government Association (SGA), a member of College Democrats, and a part of Lambda Pi Eta, which is a national communications honor society.
Crazy, right? I do a lot, but I enjoy everything that I do. Being at a smaller college has given me the ability to pursue all of my interests. And somehow I still manage to have somewhat of a social life. If you have time, make sure to check out my two radio shows: “I’m on a Boat” is co-hosted with my roommate Rachael every Wednesday night from 10-11pm CST and I host “XPOP” every Thursday morning from 10-11am CST on WAUG. I hope you continue to follow my blog throughout my hectic and sometimes stressful life.
And as a teaser for my next blog, I will leave you with a picture about what I will be blogging about next…my summer!
