A window inside life at Augustana College

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Moving In, Moving On

The day that I thought would never arrive is finally here! (Well, it arrived last Thursday) I woke up at 5am to make my journey to Augustana. As the windshield was being pounded with rain and the sky turned the color of midnight, I prayed that this wasn’t some omen telling me to turn around […]

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

Hello all!  I am so excited to write my first blog post about Augustana! I had summer connection today and it was such a blast! The ice breaker questions that the peer mentors asked were pretty funny and made you think, that’s for sure! I am so glad to have met quite a few of […]

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 […]
