Tired of cafeteria food?

Cafeteria food can only keep you going for so long so every so often my friends and I like to venture off campus and find places to eat! Here are a few places that I would recommend checking out. The Little Rangoon This is a little restaurant tucked away on a corner of 5th Ave in Moline. It doesn’t […]

XC Nationals 2012

This year, Division III Cross Country Nationals were in Terre Haute, Indiana on Saturday, November 17th. One of my roommates is dating the only Augie guy to make it to Nationals, and my boyfriend runs for North Central College, so the two of us decided to road trip to the race. In order for our […]

A Wonderful Surprise

You know those days that you wake up, see the sun shining but then look at the weather and realize it is 30 degrees outside? Those days are teasing. It’s like the weather wants you to go outside and enjoy the fall air, but its 30 degrees so you have to bundle yourself in layers […]

Getting used to it…

So I went home this weekend, and it was really weird. I mean, when I was home I felt at home, but I also knew that Augie was my home as well. I missed my family a ton and it was sad to say goodbye to them. I think they have gotten used to me […]
