A window inside life at Augustana College

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 […]

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 […]

All new experiences…

I always love when it the time comes to start new classes. For two reasons, one because I get to try new things, and two, because I get tired of always doing the same thing so I want the old classes to end. Last week was registration week for first years here at Augie. Unlike […]

Finally time to relax….AKA Week 8 Is FINALLY OVER!!!!

So week 8 left me extremely exhausted after a quiz, paper, exam, and essay. So come the weekend, decided to kick back, relax, and have some fun. Friday night, my friends and I went to intramural bowling. We are in no way, shape, or form professional bowlers. In fact, we looked down right hilarious! We […]

Week 7…..caffeine is my friend

Wow this last week and a half has been crazy! Tests and papers and concerts and meetings have been brutal! Thankfully, after tomorrow everything should settle down a lot! I got to do a lot of fun stuff over the last few days though. I volunteered at a soup kitchen on Saturday morning at Two […]

Week 5 in a nutchell….AKA Oh Geez its MIDTERMS!!!!!!!

So this week was midterm week……. I survived!!!!! I feel like exams were actually a bit anti-climactic. I had been warned by friends and family that college is nothing like high school and, well, they were right. Exams and classes in general are challenging, but they don’t waste my time. I don’t do mindless busy […]
