A window inside life at Augustana College

An Amazing Discovery on Small Business Saturday!

Welcome back, everyone! I hope all of you had a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend filled with family and food. If you remember my intro post, you’ll know that I live in St. Louis, which is about 5 hours away from campus. It seemed a bit silly to do all of that traveling for three days at […]

My Professors are Cooler than Yours

As we get ready to return to school after our short Thanksgiving Break, I figured that I share one of the things that I am really thankful for. I am thankful that I get to go to an amazing small school where the professors really care about their students. One of the reasons that I […]

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 Short Post After Thanksgiving

Hello! Guess what I made last night? Yes, I, a 21 year old, made a hand turkey. And it is beautiful. I will hang it on the fridge for all to admire. I hope your Thanksgiving went well, and if you are going out on Black Friday, be safe. ~Kaylee

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 […]

Thanksgiving Break

Well I am officially back from Thanksgiving break and trying to get back into the swing of school. I honestly really don’t like winter term because it has all these breaks. You go to school for a week and a few days only to go on Thanksgiving break. You go back to school for three […]

Getting used to it…

So I went home this weekend, and it was really weird. I mean, when I was home I felt at home, but I also knew that Augie was my home as well. I missed my family a ton and it was sad to say goodbye to them. I think they have gotten used to me […]

Let the Good Times Roll

Hey everyone! Sorry I didn’t get to blog in a while, it was kind of hectic! I started pledging for ESA the service sorority on campus, and absolutely LOVE it! I found out my Big is Bethany and she is AMAZING. (: We’ve done a bunch of cool things with the group during pledging process. […]

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 […]

Leslie’s Log, entry 24: it’s late, so I’ll be brief

What is going on in Leslie’s mind in less than 400 words: Who: Leslie Carranza; the ladies (and some gentlemen) of Seminary; prominent peeps in my LSFY class; my mom; AfroReggae. What: pain… and the fact that I cut metal for the first time ever; the flood that struck, the teamwork that cleaned it up […]
