A window inside life at Augustana College

Who Needs Sleep Anyway?

   Last year, a friend told me, “You know, I heard that you can only have two of the three at college: good grades, a social life or sleep.” The further you get in your college career, the more you’ll realize how true this is. For the last couple of years, I mostly chose good […]

SNOW!!

  So how about this weather? Not too long ago did it begin to snow and become a freezing temperature. In California, our cold weather is about 65 F, maybe 54 F, and people bring out the scarves and jackets/coats. According to my roommate Mayu, that’s hot; “I would be sweating”, she says. Adjusting to […]

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 […]

Fall’s Over, Christmas Is Around the Corner!

Welcome back Augie! How was Fall Break for everyone? Personally, mine was great! I got to go home to the good old Rocky Mountains in Colorado so that was fun. Getting out there was a trip to say the least! The flight was itself was great but the experience with the SOuthwest personnel at Midway […]

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 […]

XC Nationals 2012

This year, Division III Cross Country Nationals were in Terre Haute, Indiana on Saturday, November 17th. One of my roommates is dating the only Augie guy to make it to Nationals, and my boyfriend runs for North Central College, so the two of us decided to road trip to the race. In order for our […]

First Equestrian Show

Not many students know that Augie has an Equestrian Team. Well, we do! :)And it is made up of some awesome girls!   What does the team do? Well, normally a person would have their own horse and train and work mostly with that horse in order to show and compete. However, for the team […]

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 […]

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 […]
