A window inside life at Augustana College

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 […]

I’m a survivor

Destiny’s Child once said: “I’m a survivor/I’m not gon give up.” That was my motto for winter term and let me tell you – I’m a survivor. Somehow I managed to complete 86+ pages for my political science and communication studies senior inquiry papers. This was on top of another 20ish pages for another class. […]

50th Blog Post!

In honor of hitting 50 blog posts, I’ve edited this image to make it look like I am wearing a birthday hat because I don’t own an actual birthday hat (I feel like that is something everyone needs to own). Thanks to those of you who read them on a reoccurring basis or those who are tuning […]

“So much of me is made from what I learned from you”

“I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason/Bringing something we must learn/And we are led to those who help us most to grow if we let them/And we help them in return/Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true/But I know I’m who I am today/Because I knew you…” […]

Lunch with my future self?

Crossley currently has a talk show in Boston on WGBH-FM, 89.7 and has been a news reporter, producer and has received an Emmy and an Academy Award nomination. I had the opportunity with two other students and some faculty to […]
