A window inside life at Augustana College

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 […]

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

Hello again! Tonight I worked the women’s basketball game against Clarke University which Augustana won 80-60, a pretty good win over a team that was 6-3 coming into the contest.  Working in the sports information office as much as I do, I know where to find interesting statistics such as Augustana women’s basketball has never […]

Senior year is here already

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I will attempt to offer some insight into what it is like being a senior at Augustana as well as my involvement in the sports information office at the school among other things. First things first, you should know what I mean by sports information because I will […]

Freshman Year Fall Term in Pictures

Hello readers! (AKA hey Mom, Dad and that kid I paid $5 to read this and tell me how great it is)   Welcome to my very first Augie blog! I’m very excited to be giving you a look at Augustana life from my point of view.  I remember reading through these blogs when I […]

Augustana People: Erik Niemeier, Water Bender-Polo Player

This man has gone his whole life never hearing, “You gave the company to Erik!” and I’m pretty sure doesn’t even know what Billy Madison is. I wish that were true. He’s actually very well versed in Adam Sandler’s shenanigans. I first met Erik while we were pledging the Phi Omega Phi fraternity (Green Lantern […]

Already Week 3???

Whoever does not believe time flies fast is all sorts of crazy. I cannot believe that week three is about to begin, its seems like only yesterday I arrived.. and I have been here 2 weeks longer than most people because of work! This just shows how amazing Augustana truly is, my friends and everything […]

Augustana People: Sam Mago, the last scion of House Mago.

I imagine being one of the Mago brothers is akin to roasting marshmallows on a summer night after watching the Baby Sitters Club movie where Larisa Oleynik isn’t playing Alex Mack or being secretive about it. The night would start out that way until someone called Zeus and told him Al Roker stole his lightning bolts […]

Augustana People: Connor “Not Alex Bowers” Cummings

Because I believe in equality and that Elvis is currently living in Milwaukee, I wanted to gain further insight into the male psyche at Augustana. The mind of an Augustana man is one of great complication. Our previous subject of interrogation was our marvelous Kwilli (holla). This time it is the magnanimous Connor Cummings. This […]

Final Day of My Turtle Internship

The past 3 months I have been in Swansboro, North Carolina at Hammocks Beach State Park studying loggerhead sea turtles on Bear Island. This internship has given me more than I could have asked for. Having just finished my Freshman year everyone told me that Freshman do not get internships, and I am proud to […]
