A window inside life at Augustana College

Lacrosse season is upon us

Earlier this week I worked the men’s lacrosse home-opener inputting live stats from the pressbox at Thorson-Lucken Field. That chilly evening saw the Vikings set several records in their 20-1 win over Dubuque. The single game record of 31 points was upped to 33 as Augie scored 20 goals and assisted 13 of them, which […]

First Day of my Internship!

It has been awhile since I have posted a blog but for anyone that is reading this post there will be a lot more where this is coming from. One of the academic requirements for my internship is to keep a blog regarding what I am up to at my internship as well as my […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
