A window inside life at Augustana College

Times when I realize I’m a college student

There are many times since starting school that I have looked at myself and thought “well, I did not expect to expect this from myself..”, like when–  I’m trudging across campus with my back pack and hands full of grocery bags. My groceries consist of Coke, fruit snacks, and creamy chicken Ramen noodles. I’m wearing […]

Know You’re Not Alone

Week 2 is almost done! Just one more class to go. (: I’ve accomplished a lot this week. I finished my first LSFY paper. HALLELUJAH! That was not a pleasant experience; so much work went into the paper. I hope it turns out well… So different from any paper I wrote in high school, and […]

Theatre People

(Shut up, WordPress; I did not spell ‘theatre’ wrong) So, week one is done. Wait no. My brother is telling me the weeks here end on Sunday. 26 hours to go, I guess. I’m adjusting well. Getting into the mix of things. Slowly but surely making friends. My plan so far is to meet people […]

The time has come

Hey everyone! Boy, has it been such a long week since I moved in last Tuesday! Attending MCO, then met my AWESOME roommate Holly, and attended a bunch of activities with my peer mentor group which was nice. But I can not get over the fact that Michael Miller kept calling everyone and everything sexy… […]

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 […]

Wait…wait…ALMOST THERE!!

So I found out my dorm last week. I’m not gonna say that I wanted to live in Andreen, but I’m still excited no matter what dorm I live in. It is no joke when people say that college is expensive. There is so much that goes into just stepping on to campus on the first […]

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 […]

Summer Connection

Well everyone, the Summer Connections are finally underway!  I had the pleasure of getting to attend the very first Summer Connection of the year and loved it!  They really tell you everything you may need to know for move in day/the first week of attending Augustana College!  After attending the SC, you will finally feel […]

IT’S ALMOST CHRISTMAS!!!!!

Sorry that it’s been forever since I blogged last. This term has been crazier than I could have ever expected. But, oh well I enjoy being busy. I have four classes, a job, a social life, and am active in a bunch of activities on campus. Oh, I guess I should probably mention that I […]

Goodbye week 9…Yikes! It’s week 10!?!

Oh geez….oh geez, oh geez, oh geez…… Yup it’s that time of the term…Week 10!! AHHHH!!!! Cue the creepy Halloween music. I have been pretty calm so far this trimester, but now I am feeling the pressure. Unfortunately though, it’s not just me. Pretty much everyone I know is at least a little bit freaked […]
