A window inside life at Augustana College

Finals Week – Round 8

I’m just now realizing that I am closer to graduating from college than I am from having started college, as in I’ve completed 2.66 years here and I only have 1.3 years left. It’s amazing how time flies and I can’t believe that this is my eighth finals week at Augustana. This means I only have […]

My Thanksgiving On Campus

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a good time Black Friday shopping with their friends and family. You know, when you go to a college that is half way across the country from where you live, its not cheap flying back and forth on breaks. It does suck being away from your family […]

A quick Tuesday night post

A thing that annoys me

Men hallå! Today I wanted to talk about a little thing that annoys me a lot: the homework system! I am not a hater of homework. I understand that it is important to study during the terms to be able to learn in a good way. What bothers me is the way you get graded […]

Introduction to my little tiny blog

Tjenare! This blog is about me and my year here at Augustana. Since I’m an International Student who is only here for a year, it’s a bit different than the rest of the Augie Students. This is because of one big reason: I live by the expression that “You only gap once” – I will […]
