A window inside life at Augustana College

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 […]

I thought I peaked in High School…

Being a senior, my main job while I’m at home is to go through all my possessions in my room and decide to keep them, store them, or give them away. Going through a box of High School memorabilia (props from shows I was in, scholastic awards, and a sea of chorus competition medals) I […]

It’s Our Time

This is a video my mom’s cousin Marty Casey sings. I think this is a great new year song! (: I hope that everyone enjoyed their break off of school and are looking forward to getting back together with their Augie friends on campus on Sunday! I know I am excited to see them all […]

Tired of cafeteria food?

Cafeteria food can only keep you going for so long so every so often my friends and I like to venture off campus and find places to eat! Here are a few places that I would recommend checking out. The Little Rangoon This is a little restaurant tucked away on a corner of 5th Ave in Moline. It doesn’t […]

Homecoming Week

Oh dear what a week last week was! OSA had to have been PRETTY busy! I give props to all the people running the different homecoming events. They sure do know how to throw a good time! I was so glad I got to go to the Kick Off, Talent show and the Sing/Coronation last […]

Declaring a major: Why I have a problem with commitment

These days, it seems like kids are too eager to tie the knot, by which I mean declaring a major. I have always imagined this process to be long and complex, requiring the sacrificing of a split-hooved critter representing your freedom over the a desk of one’s new major advisor upon the arrival of the […]

Fall has begun!

Hi everyone!  Well there seems to be a trend on Facebook this last week… Wednesday was “National Mean Girls Day” so naturally everyone and their brother were posting quotes from the movie “Mean Girls”, but there was also the presidential debate which evoked more status’s pertaining to the political campaigns. Then some people were mashing […]

Welcome to Augie!

So welcome week has come to an end, activity after activity. Each has been so much fun! Well except the hour speech about ITS on Monday… I knew almost all of what she had told us, plus it can all be found online… Then I was stepped on by guys when they pushed their way […]

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 […]

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 […]
