A window inside life at Augustana College

This is Real

Hey everyone! Hopefully everyone made it out of week 5 and midterms alright. The weather has been PERFECT and it really is beginning to feel a lot more like fall. (: I can not wait until all the leaves begin to start to change colors, it is the most beautiful time ever!  With this new […]

Camp Kesem Again? ….. Yes Please!!!

Camp Kesem Augustana is a group of Augustana students that fundraise and then become counselors at a week long overnight camp that children whose parents have, have had, or have passed away from cancer come for free! The week of camp was one of the best weeks of my summer. We, as college students, could […]

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 […]

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… […]

Tips & tricks for your first year of college

I was going to blog about my internship, when I stumbled upon the freshman (okay, fine, first-year) summer connection blogs. Which prompted this blog post. I know when I was just entering Augustana, I looked online for anything that might have advice about how to survive my first year. Well, this is the culmination of […]

Winter Break: The Little Things and Procrastination

Winter break at Augie is literally just that–a break.  At most colleges, it’s a time to relax before a fresh new start.  At Augie, it’s a short period to briefly relax and procrastinate on the homework you have due right when you return.  Although winter break passed a bit too quickly (don’t worry, I still […]

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 […]

Back on campus

So I know it’s been awhile since I had the chance to blog and I apologize for not keeping everyone updated. Finals week was….interesting. I practically lived in the library. The finals themselves were a tiny bit less terrifying than I thought they would be. All the studying paid off and I am happy with […]

Is it possible to grow tired of sleeping?

Um, perhaps? Since starting my fall break Monday of finals week (because I’m the bomb dig and got done early) I’ve been sleeping in. At first, it was strictly involuntarily and my mom was rather peeved. As a result, I helped her out around the house in the morning, taking short naps when she wasn’t […]

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 […]
