A window inside life at Augustana College

I’m in College, now what? Homecoming edition

When I was in High School. There was one special week that I could barely wait an entire year for. And that week was: HOMECOMING WEEK! During homecoming, our school would pit the classes against each other in challenges of spirit. We would get points for winning competitions such as float building, getting the most […]

SAI Alumnae Tea

Since I am the Corresponding Secretary of Sigma Alpha Iota (SAI), it was my job to coordinate and plan our chapter’s alumnae tea for homecoming. With the help of the alumnae tea committee, we pulled it off! There were a few glitches along the way, but in the end I think everyone enjoyed it. We […]

Homecoming at Augustana

Homecoming week was always my favorite time of the school year while in High School. I never expected it to be equally as fun in college. Even though they are very distinct, many of the same traditions are kept. Some of these include dressing up to certain themes, having a “pep rally,” and attending the […]

College Democrats: A promise fulfilled

When I visited Augustana my senior year of high school, I was promised that Augustana would be a great hotspot for politics. There was bound to be politicians coming through the area and there was going to be media. As a senior, being promised that one day, I could be interviewed about politics was pretty […]

All new experiences…

I always love when it the time comes to start new classes. For two reasons, one because I get to try new things, and two, because I get tired of always doing the same thing so I want the old classes to end. Last week was registration week for first years here at Augie. Unlike […]

Homecoming 2011!

What I learned this week: As much as loved homecoming in high school, homecoming in college is better! Last night was coronation and Sing, and it was so much fun! I loved watching everyone’s routines and was so impressed by everyone’s creativity and dedication! I had a great time performing on stage with APO too. […]

Autumn is a good word

Guess what? It’s cold outside. That whole summer in the fall thing has officially ended. We are now experiencing real autumn weather, which in retrospect isn’t all that cold, but compared to what we’ve been having it definitely is a change. But on the plus side, they turned the heat on in the dorms so […]

Preparation for homecoming!

When you only have ten weeks (plus finals) a term, time seems to go by really, really, really fast. I picked all of my classes for next term and finally got all the classes I want for once. That’s one of the perks of not being an underclassman anymore, those who aren’t in your major […]
