How did Augustana prepare you for life after college?
Augustana gave me the opportunity to pursue my many interests fully, which has shaped my passions and pursuits for the future. My experience here had also given me opportunities to hold leadership positions and grow personally, not just academically.
What are you looking forward to about life after graduation?
I'm looking forward to continuing my studies at Syracuse and putting my truly liberal arts education to good use.
What will you miss about Augustana?
I think I'm going to miss the relationships I've developed with other students and the amazing professors here the most. And, of course, the beautiful campus!
What was your favorite memory from Augie?
Studying abroad in Grebbestad, Sweden in the summer of 2008 was an irreplaceable opportunity. It was a fun and educational trip that gave me a chance to put my Swedish language skills to use, and to experience another culture.
What advice would you give to current students?
Get outside of your comfort zone and don't be afraid to try something new!
