A window inside life at Augustana College

Hey!! My name is Karalyn Jevaney, and I am a junior at Augustana. I’m from Elmhurst, IL and I went to York Community High School. My majors are sociology and political science. On campus, I am very busy with the Chi Alpha Pi Sorority, the Martini Swingers Swing Dance Club, the Pre-Law Club and volunteering around the Quad Cities. I also work as an admissions ambassador and peer mentor. If you can’t tell, I like to be busy. I love to smile, dance and meet new people! I hope you enjoy my blog.

Reflections on 2010

I haven’t written an entry in a long time. I always struggle finding the right words to use or wonder what I should say. Anything who knows me personally knows that I LOVE to talk but, writing about myself has always been something I struggle with. So I have decided to take a trip down […]

Fall Adventures :)

I have not updated this blog in a while. I was thinking about making the title of this blog ” Livin’ La Vida Loca” not because I’m a huge Ricky Martin fan but, because my life has been crazy lately. Here is a brief synposis of what I have been up to. I am currently […]

Summer 2010 comes to an end
