A window inside life at Augustana College

Who Needs Sleep Anyway?

   Last year, a friend told me, “You know, I heard that you can only have two of the three at college: good grades, a social life or sleep.” The further you get in your college career, the more you’ll realize how true this is. For the last couple of years, I mostly chose good […]

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. […]

Winter Break: The Little Things and Procrastination

Winter break at Augie is literally just that–a break.  At most colleges, it’s a time to relax before a fresh new start.  At Augie, it’s a short period to briefly relax and procrastinate on the homework you have due right when you return.  Although winter break passed a bit too quickly (don’t worry, I still […]

How I goats taught me about life

Since I got accepted to Augie, I’ve been pretty sure of what I would major in once I got the chance to declare it. Oh, Leslie, how stupid you are… Why is it that during your first few weeks at school, you’re asked what you want to major in. Everytime I had to introduce myself, I […]

Since Augustana’s on trimesters, we recently started our winter term.  Most people are taking four classes; however, I only have to take three thanks to taking […]

Fall break & winter term

Every fall break I tell myself I’m going to be productive and get a lot accomplished. I’m always going to read at least 10 educational books, apply to a lot of internships, and hang out with my friends every day. While I can’t say I had the most productive fall break, I watched seasons 4-6 […]

Winter Term Classes :)

One thing I truly love about Augustana is the Liberal Arts aspect of it. Registering for winter term just got over with. Determining what 4 classes I wanted to pick was not easy!! There are just so many amazing classes to choose from. But I love the fact that I am faced with this problem. […]

Ice Ice Baby

Hey all, I know been a while since I have updated a post I know, but hopefully this story will make up for my lack of blog posts! So like most of my fellow first year class mates, I learned the hard way the reason Augustana sells ice cleat covers for your shoes during the […]
