A window inside life at Augustana College

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 […]

The best weekend of my four years at Augie

I had the best weekend of my whole entire life this weekend. There were so many hugs and smiles and friends. To say it was magical would be an understatement. It basically started on Wednesday night when my friends and I went out to dinner at Blue Cat and then sang karaoke. I also registered […]

Sigma Alpha Iota’s Province Day

The Delta Tau chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota spent at least ten hours together two weekends ago. And let me tell you, it was fantastic! First on Friday we had a sisterhood retreat. We made some crafts, sang some songs, and did “warm fuzzies.” Warm fuzzies are definitely my favorite part of the sisterhood retreats! […]

Sigma Alpha Iota formal

This past Friday Sigma Alpha Iota (ΣAI), which I am a part of, had a joint formal with Phi Mu Alpha. Both are national music affiliated fraternities we have here at Augustana. I always told myself I wouldn’t join anything with greek letters, yet I honestly wouldn’t be the same person I am today without […]

Gearing up for senior year!

It’s not often when you look at your life and are fairly happy with the way things are going. At this point in time though, I am stoked for my summer and my senior year! Here are a few reasons why: I am interning with WGN Radio this summer. Considering 50 people applied, I could […]
