A window inside life at Augustana College

Today was the day I have been waiting for!

Prior to today I had not heard back from any of the schools that I applied for internships at for next school year. All of that changed when I received an email from the Director of Athletic Communications at the University of Iowa asking when I’d be able to visit Iowa City! As you can […]

Augustana lacrosse programs combine for perfect 5-0 week

This week was great in terms of experiencing the sports information lifestyle…and also a lot of work. Tuesday we hosted a baseball doubleheader at 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. and then women’s lacrosse at 7:30 p.m. the same day. I had the opportunity to work all three events following a couple hours in the office to […]

Putting a good spin on not so good things

In the sports information business, as in life, it is necessary that we are always able to find the good in every situation…including a 23-1 loss. Luckily, Augustana was on the 23 side of that game and I got to write a much more upbeat story. However, I was curious how the other side of […]

My opportunities in the sports information office

As many of you know, I am completing an internship in the sports information office here on the campus of Augustana. My main responsibilities include writing stories following every men’s and women’s lacrosse game, regardless of if it is home or away. Along with those stories I am also given opportunities to write various stories […]

How other stories stack up

I finally got a chance to visit the Mount St. Joseph athletic website to see how their write-up of the game that Augustana beat them in triple overtime compared to my own version. I think that it goes without saying that I got to write on the better end of the affair. Getting the chance […]

Experience

This week I had the opportunity to write stories for three of Augustana’s varsity teams. In my last blog I mentioned our women’s lacrosse home-opener. The women won 15-8 over DePauw and moved to 5-0 with each of their wins coming in a different state. Here’s the link for the women’s lacrosse story: http://www.athletics.augustana.edu/news/2014/3/21/WLAX_0321140203.aspx?path=wlax. I […]

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 […]

First Day of my Internship!

It has been awhile since I have posted a blog but for anyone that is reading this post there will be a lot more where this is coming from. One of the academic requirements for my internship is to keep a blog regarding what I am up to at my internship as well as my […]

Ask Me About My Internship!!

The ending of my final Fall Term ever brings bittersweet feelings. I’m so relieved to be one step closer to my future (I’m quite future-oriented). However, with the end of the term comes the end of my internship; one that gave me almost half a year of the most amazing experience.   My Animal Husbandry […]

Final Day of My Turtle Internship

The past 3 months I have been in Swansboro, North Carolina at Hammocks Beach State Park studying loggerhead sea turtles on Bear Island. This internship has given me more than I could have asked for. Having just finished my Freshman year everyone told me that Freshman do not get internships, and I am proud to […]
