A window inside life at Augustana College

Hi! My name is Katrina Jensen, and I am a senior at Augustana. I am double majoring in communication sciences & disorders and psychology. I am also involved in a number of activities on campus including playing my French horn in Symphonic Band, Campus Ministries, Clogustana, Admissions Ambassadors and Peer Mentors and the Augustana Student Speech and Hearing Association. In the summer of 2009, I traveled to Singapore and Thailand where I participated in a volunteer abroad program. Click here to read about my travels.

Hurricane Fun!

After a long week of work, we let all our stress out getting dirty jumping in the mud puddles left by Hurricane Alex around Rice University! Getting muddy is one of my favorite things in the world, so it was a much-appreciated break from the stresses of work. Here we are with the Augie A […]

Hurricanes and Health Care

Hey all! Just a little update from Not-So-Sunny-Anymore Houston! It’s hurricane season now down here and boy, have we been noticing. For those of you not following along at home, the first hurricane of the season, Alex, has hit land. Now, its not close to us, its more down by Mexico, but we are still […]

My Ridiculous Friday

I don’t even know where to start. This day has just been so weird and I feel like I need to write about it to even wrap my head around everything that has happened. So my morning started off pretty normal. I get to work (a little late, alright) get settled into my desk, turn […]

Houston Group Blog- Part 1

Howdy, y’all! I thought you might be getting sick of hearing about me all the time, so I thought it would be fun to have other members of the group write little mini-blogs so you can see what everyone in the group has been up to. Here are the first three- look for more to […]

Very Lucky

I’m in one of those reflective moods and the only way I’m going to get anything done at work today is just to get it all out (Thank you, AugieBlog) I woke up to a lovely email from my mother this morning in which she reminded me, “I hope you appreciate how very lucky you […]

Class Connections- Woohoo!!!

I’m at work and not really supposed to be blogging, but I just HAD to write about what I just did because it was SO cool! On the MD Anderson employee homepage this morning, I saw an article about a speaker that was coming to the hospital today to talk about Neurofibromatosis (NF). This is […]

…its getting hotter!

So apparently you’ve all been hearing about our lovely weather in Houston this week! I’m not gonna lie, its been ridiculously hot and humid, but that hasn’t stopped us from having tons of fun! “Family Dinners” continue to be a highlight of this trip for me. For those of you who don’t recall, we 10 […]

One week- what a FEET!

Its been a crazy first week–we’ve been busy doing all kinds of fun things and my poor feet have taken a beating because of it! The last night Dr. Storl was here, we went out to eat at a delicious Guatemalan restaurant. We got to eat outdoors in this really fun cabanas where my feet […]

Medical Center, Motown, and Munching!

Hello from sunny Houston, Texas! The last few days have been a whirlwind, but I thought I’d give you all a little update on the highlights- 1. While sitting in the O’Hare airport waiting for my first flight, the scruffy, middle-aged man next to me says “Sweetheart, will you watch my bags for a second, […]

Houston, we have a speech problem

Since my last blog was titled “for my mommy” I suppose it would be fair to call this one “for my daddy.” I have had a request to talk about my summer plans, so here I go- This summer I will be flying to Houston, Texas for 9 weeks for a medical research internship program […]
