A window inside life at Augustana College

Week One = Done.

Well, I’m so glad to have survived my first week of college!  A ton of homework, yes, but some really awesome professors!  I’m amazed that most of them are less than 40 years old. (One of them, I swear, doesn’t even look old enough to have a Ph.D.  I literally sat in my seat and […]

The Joys of Campus Life

Alright, so I haven’t blogged in forever. There has been wayyy too much going on and all of you first years out there know what I’m talking about. I’ve been on Augustana Campus by myself for 4 days and it is already flying by. I won’t lie though; I miss my mom very much! The […]

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 […]

Summer Vacation

Alright, so I know everyone’s excited for the new school year and it IS pretty exciting but last week I was able to free my mind of the stresses that come with it. And what’s the best way to do that? By soaking up the sweet summer sun down in the Florida Keys, of course! […]

As we enter the last bend of summer

I can not believe that summer is coming to a fast end! I move-in in 21 days. 21 days left of summer. I can not believe it! 3 weeks and then I will be moving into Andreen! I was so happy to find out my roommate and where I will be staying, even if Andreen […]

Four Weeks

Twenty nine days (to be exact).  696 hours.  41,760 minutes.  No matter which way I put it, the time until I move in seems like forever, yet too close for comfort.   I’m currently writing this from my brand new laptop, and I’m just beyond excited.  I find out who I will room with by […]

Summer Connection 2012: One of Our Many First Steps

Today, I walked into the Hanson Hall of science building for the second time at Augustana; but this time it wasn’t for a visit. Oh no, I was there to take one of my many first steps that would control how the rest of my life played out – the much anticipated Summer Connection date. Yes […]

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 […]

New Beginnings

Most of my friends just recently decided on where they wanted to go to school this fall. These are the kids that waited until the last possible second to send in a decision. Personally, I never had to worry about that. Even though I was asked many times “What do you want to study?” to […]

Moving Forward

You would think, or I least I did, that by leaving high school you leave all the high school issues behind. By that, I mean all the stereotypes or cliques you thought were only in high school. Today, I realized this wasn’t the case. There are all types of people here. Jocks, klutzes, the obnoxiously loud […]
