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 […]

Julbord Info

Hello! Earlier today I posted about my trip to Bishop Hill with the Scandinavian Club. At the end of the long post there was a sentence or two about Augustana’s julbord this Sunday. I now have more information about it: Julbord will be December 15th at 6 pm in Founder’s basement. Please, RSVP by December […]

Tomte Spotting at Bishop Hill

Hello! On Sunday (Dec. 8th), the Scandinavian Club travelled to Bishop Hill, IL, for its annual Chocolate Walk. Being a member of the club and a lover of chocolate, I, of course, went with my friend Michelle. It was the perfect day for such an event due to the fact it was snowing. I know […]

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

Haunted House

Halloween is coming up fast and there have been a some great activities on campus! From to zombie run, the haunted history tour, and the RHA haunted house to name a few. What a great way to procrastinate on studying for those finals I was lucky enough to help work in the RHA haunted house and it was a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Adventures of: The Goddess of Leaves

I wrote this story/rant around this time last year, and can see it still applies, much to my dismay: It was then that I saw it.  The leaves that until today had been rivers of colors surrounding trees, reaching towards the sidewalks, an array of crunching steps to brighten just anyone’s day.  But what I […]

Carefree Times in the Library

 Though the library is the place to get much work done Kristen and I are not very good at that. While others were at their steady pace of doing homework Kristen and I went on an adventure with our friend Jasen’s camera. This picture is one of the many that was taken. Now, don’t let […]
