A window inside life at Augustana College

Know You’re Not Alone

Week 2 is almost done! Just one more class to go. (: I’ve accomplished a lot this week. I finished my first LSFY paper. HALLELUJAH! That was not a pleasant experience; so much work went into the paper. I hope it turns out well… So different from any paper I wrote in high school, and […]

The time has come

Hey everyone! Boy, has it been such a long week since I moved in last Tuesday! Attending MCO, then met my AWESOME roommate Holly, and attended a bunch of activities with my peer mentor group which was nice. But I can not get over the fact that Michael Miller kept calling everyone and everything sexy… […]

The Highlights of Fall Connection

Hey everyone! So I’ve been on campus since Thursday and have barely had time to breathe! There is so much going on and most of it has been indescribably awesome! However, with that being said, there is no competition for my favorite activity. The OSA music festival tonight blew me away.  Music is the key […]

Wait…wait…ALMOST THERE!!

So I found out my dorm last week. I’m not gonna say that I wanted to live in Andreen, but I’m still excited no matter what dorm I live in. It is no joke when people say that college is expensive. There is so much that goes into just stepping on to campus on the first […]

An Amazing Experience

As the school year drew to a close, I began to get more and more excited for my trip to Florida. I was one of 6 that were selected to partake in a week long internship at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind in St. Augustine, Florida. I was the only sophomore (going […]

Not Just a Bunch of Meetings

Summer Connection was a whirlwind of new faces, tons of information and a lot of fun.  I met so many people and there is no way I can remember all of their faces or names.  Every experience helped me validate that I had indeed made the right decision by choosing Augustana.  I am not going […]

My Mushy (but Extremely True) Reflections of Freshman Year

First of all, I realize I haven’t blogged in almost exactly four months, but there’s a good reason for that–Augustana took over my life. Not to get all mushy and sentimental, but it seems like it was just yesterday when I was moving into Swanson and hugging my parents goodbye at the Fall Connection kick-off. […]

Winter Break: The Little Things and Procrastination

Winter break at Augie is literally just that–a break.  At most colleges, it’s a time to relax before a fresh new start.  At Augie, it’s a short period to briefly relax and procrastinate on the homework you have due right when you return.  Although winter break passed a bit too quickly (don’t worry, I still […]

Goodbye Stress, Hello Peace

My last post was about one of my biggest enemies, Week 10.  This post, however, will ramble a bit about one of my newest and most delightful friends–Week 1. Since Augustana’s on trimesters, we recently started our winter term.  Most people are taking four classes; however, I only have to take three thanks to taking […]

Goodbye Labels, Hello Me

As stressful as registration hell currently is for me, I do realize that there are a few things that I will never stop loving about college.  The main one being the one I’ve been excited for since high school. I am exactly who I want to be here. Coming to Augie gave me a fresh […]
