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.

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 […]

October 31. Halloween. That typically means candy and costumes. This year it means a political science textbook and a whole lot of notecards! But the food aspect is covered with bags of popcorn, dark chocolate, pound cake, and lots of orange juice. With my last final tomorrow, I spent my day studying for it and […]

Haunted House

Halloween is coming up fast and there have been a some great activities on campus! From to zombie run, the haunted history tour, and the RHA haunted house to name a few.

First Equestrian Show

Not many students know that Augie has an Equestrian Team. Well, we do! :)And it is made up of some awesome girls!   What does the team do? Well, normally a person would have their own horse and train and work mostly with that horse in order to show and compete. However, for the team […]
