A window inside life at Augustana College

Forget the Freshman 15…the Freshman Flu is much worse!

Sickness is a part of every day life. We all strongly dislike it, but sadly, we have to deal with it. With sickness comes more sickness, etc etc. Sickness keeps us from doing the things we enjoy doing, and especially the things that we don’t enjoy doing (hooray!). Everyone remembers how things went when we […]

Why I Need Feminism (Maybe?)

Hello Augie people! It has been a hot minute since I last blogged! Basically over a year if we’re being technical…. There is no excuse for that! I promise I will take better care of doing so this coming school year-which I will be beginning my junior year! Yikes! I guess time does fly when […]

A Great Weekend to be a Viking!

Wow. This one word summarizes the whole weekend being an Augustana student. First off, the Augustana Men’s Track Team 4×4 WON at the Indoor Track National Meet with a time of 3:15, just barely winning by :02 seconds. I believe they set a new record for our school as well! In addition to that FANTASTIC […]

Shakespeare never tweeted a sonnet!

  I’m not sure where I heard the phrase, “Shakespeare never tweeted a sonnet,” but it must’ve been my favorite thing yet. I would think the phrase is saying that it’s difficult to picture someone so ancient doing something so modern. Therefore, it’s difficult to picture someone so modern to do something so ancient. I […]

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 […]


  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 […]
