A window inside life at Augustana College

Doula: a woman who serves

I was recently at a funeral with people whom I had not seen since I was in high school so there was a lot of catching up to do. I can’t tell you how many times I had the following conversation: Where are you studying? Augustana just across the river in Rock Island (the funeral […]

Where are they today?

Hi everyone! It’s been over a month since I graduated, does that mean I am no longer fit to write this blog? I hope not!! My life is still in transition since graduation, I moved back home for the time being, and trust me, fitting 4-years of stuff back into one storage room was exhausting! […]

A reflection on my Augustana internship experience

If you have been on the Campusnet webpage at all this term chances are that you’ve seen the link for a few of my blogs. While I wish I could say that I blog this frequently for pure enjoyment, that would be a complete lie. For the academic portion of my six-credit internship in the […]

My life in a blog part 1

Entering Easter weekend the anxiety of graduation began to set in. I realized that in just over a month I would be a college graduate that still had no idea what my future would hold. Well on Easter Monday all of that began to change.   I visited with the new director at the summer […]

Bring on Graduation!

So, probably since the beginning of Spring Term, I’ve been in a funk. I was getting job rejections (but that’s life), I spent just about every waking minute working, I was missing the excitement of my internship and volunteer experiences, and I was just bored overall. I also had no clue of where I was […]

67 days

Graduation is in 67 days and we all know that those days are going to fly by! Seeing as I am not going to grad school I will be entering the real world. I’ve spent the last few weeks or so applying for jobs and internships at various places around the country. I have a […]

Putting it off

I haven’t posted in forever, but it’s all for good reason. There are so many things that have happened since we got back to school two weeks ago. I was offered a coaching position with the swim club that I lifeguard for! This means that now I need to budget my time for working 10+ hours […]

I graduated!

I’m officially an alumni of Augustana College! It’s weird because I think it hasn’t completely sunk in yet. I just wanted to thank all my professors, family, friends and especially my parents for getting me to this point in my life. I couldn’t have gotten to this point in my life without all of them […]

I have chosen a graduate school!

After much contemplation, pro/cons lists, and numerous restless nights, I have officially chosen which graduate school I will be attending in the fall. From previous blog posts, you might remember that I had to choose between Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. and Columbia University in New York. They are both two fantastic schools, I just […]

Spring Break – Fall Out Boy, Florida & Georgetown

So my last first day at Augustana happened today – it’s a little bittersweet. But the last first day was on the heels of a fantastic Spring Break! Some highlights include: Meeting Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy! He came to Anderson’s Bookshop because he recently released a book. They have really famous authors who […]
