A window inside life at Augustana College

Nobody has it all together and nobody can have it all

I’ve spent most of the summer trying to figure out where I will be in 6-9 months. I’ve actually spent most of the last 6 months trying to figure that out. I love to plan things. I like to make lists of what I need to do, or buy, or who I need to talk […]

Augustana lacrosse programs combine for perfect 5-0 week

This week was great in terms of experiencing the sports information lifestyle…and also a lot of work. Tuesday we hosted a baseball doubleheader at 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. and then women’s lacrosse at 7:30 p.m. the same day. I had the opportunity to work all three events following a couple hours in the office to […]

Top Reasons To Study Abroad In Africa

As you may already know, Augie provides many destinations to study abroad each year. 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 […]

Why so vague?

So I realized my last “real” post, so not the one about Christmas that came a month after Christmas, was a little vague. Okay it was very vague, but it was for the sake of protecting someone that I really care about and look up to. There are two “secret” things that were going on with […]

I Miss Augie…

It’s winter break and I’ve been ready to head back to Augie. It’s hard transitioning from a productive college life to back at home. Here’s some things I miss about Augie: Veggie Chik’n Hot Cocoa (The best cocoa is the one that’s just a button away) Being able to sleep anywhere on campus – my […]

SNOW!!

  So how about this weather? Not too long ago did it begin to snow and become a freezing temperature. In California, our cold weather is about 65 F, maybe 54 F, and people bring out the scarves and jackets/coats. According to my roommate Mayu, that’s hot; “I would be sweating”, she says. Adjusting to […]

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! I’d love to hear what you’re thankful for!   Well it’s that time of year again: crunching leaves, bonfires, cozy sweaters, Thanksgiving, and endless posts, greeting cards, and […]

Fall’s Over, Christmas Is Around the Corner!

Welcome back Augie! How was Fall Break for everyone? Personally, mine was great! I got to go home to the good old Rocky Mountains in Colorado so that was fun. Getting out there was a trip to say the least! The flight was itself was great but the experience with the SOuthwest personnel at Midway […]

A little piece of advice

Hey all! I know it’s been quite a while since I have blogged. It seems as though life always gets overwhelming and you lose sight of what needs to be done. 29 days until school is over and it seems like we just got here not too long ago. I am nearing the end of my sophomore […]

Spring Term 2013: A New Beginning Thanks to Pledging

A new term, and perhaps a new start. That is the mind set I am going in with. For many of us, it is the start of the pledging process, weather you are pledging COG, DON, OZO, CAP, you are about to venture on a journey that will change your life. Now that the first […]
