A window inside life at Augustana College

A thing that annoys me

Men hallå! Today I wanted to talk about a little thing that annoys me a lot: the homework system! I am not a hater of homework. I understand that it is important to study during the terms to be able to learn in a good way. What bothers me is the way you get graded […]

De-stress Week 5

It has come to that dreadful time again, mid-term week. The one week that may come close to finals week. While all your friends are arriving home from their finals week, you get to stay in class until 3:45on Friday (At least in my case). Some ways to get rid of the pre-break jitters: Watch […]

The End is Near

Hey everyone!  Oh what a way to end out the term! Well let me start out with, we survived registration week! Yay!! That is an accomplishment there in itself. My friend Caitlin decided to stay up really late Tuesday night and then she got up at 4:45 the next morning hoping for her LSFY class […]

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 […]

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… […]

Dreen Team

So here it is, the time has come for my first year dorm room.  At first when I saw the other dorms at Westerlin I was jealous (mostly because of their huge bathrooms!!) but I’m very happy that Andreen is my dorm room this year.  Westerlin may have the cafeteria and c-store but it is […]

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 […]

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 […]

Finally time to relax….AKA Week 8 Is FINALLY OVER!!!!

So week 8 left me extremely exhausted after a quiz, paper, exam, and essay. So come the weekend, decided to kick back, relax, and have some fun. Friday night, my friends and I went to intramural bowling. We are in no way, shape, or form professional bowlers. In fact, we looked down right hilarious! We […]

Week 7…..caffeine is my friend

Wow this last week and a half has been crazy! Tests and papers and concerts and meetings have been brutal! Thankfully, after tomorrow everything should settle down a lot! I got to do a lot of fun stuff over the last few days though. I volunteered at a soup kitchen on Saturday morning at Two […]
