A window inside life at Augustana College

Hi! I’m Jennifer Schroder and a junior majoring in communication studies with a minor in sociology. I’m from right here in Rock Island and have lived here my whole life. I attended Rock Island High School (Go Rocks!). On campus I’m involved in Circle K, ELCA world hunger, Camp Kesem, and ADs club. I work in the Communications and Marketing office. My friends and family mean the world to me. I am quite addicted to France and anything with the Eiffel Tower, as well as the color purple. I love to have fun and laugh! Join me in my blog adventures!

Thanks for a great 4 years, Augustana

I still don’t think it’s hit me that I am an Augustana Alumni.  These 4 years flew by in the blink of an eye.   I grew so much while at Augustana.  I made friends that will last a lifetime, challenged myself in ways I never expected, and joined clubs and took classes that showed […]

20 days remain

Only 20 days until graduation!  I cannot believe my time at Augustana is coming to a close.  I am filled with mixed emotions.  Ever since senior year began I could not wait to receive my diploma.  I am still excited, but now the sadness has crept in.  A few months ago, I thought, “Oh, I have plenty […]

World Hunger Day!

Yesterday was a whirlwind.  It was the day of my communication studies senior project event!  I was a mix of emotions the whole day…nervous, excited, happy.  But during the whole day, I could not stop smiling.  Before I go any further, let’s rewind so you all know what the heck I’m talking about! At the […]

Countdown to winter break!

I just looked at my blog and realized I hadn’t update for over a month.  We just ended week 4 of winter term and there are only 7 days until winter break! Before I can even think about having 3 blissful weeks off, I need to get lots of reading done, finish a group project, […]

26 hours

In 26 hours my finals will be over and fall break will officially be here!  I have my political sociology final, senior inquiry presentation, and senior inquiry paper all tomorrow.  It’s going to be a crazy/stressful day. Nothing exciting is planned for break.  Just some good family time (it’s very much needed).  I’ve also really been wanting […]

Week 10 madness!

Oh Week 10…the time when the library is open until 2 a.m., Olin never closes, and everyone walks around like a zombie.  I’ve been pretty stressed out these past two weeks, but only one week until fall break!  So close, yet so far away.  I had my practice presentation today for my senior inquiry project. […]

Starting to become stressed..

It’s now week 8 and the stress is starting to pile up.  Only 3 weeks left of classes and then finals.  Is it just me or has this term really flown by? My senior inquiry is in full swing and I’m starting to write my paper.  We have to give a presentation in front of […]

The beginning of the end..

Hello everyone! I apologize for my lack of blogs over the past few months.  Summer kept me busy with work and just taking a break from school.  I still can’t believe that I’m a SENIOR!  People are right when they say your college years fly by.  I feel like it was just yesterday that I […]

Preparing for finals!

This has been such a busy last month that I haven’t had time to blog.  This past week I had 2 presentations (both on Friday and back-to-back) and a response paper (also due on Friday!).  But the countdown to summer 2012 is down to 4 days! 🙂  I cannot believe my junior year is almost […]

Spring Break 2012

I promised you guys a blog about the adventures I had with my friend from Sweden over spring break, so here it goes! Tess arrived on February 22nd and after a short plane delay our adventures had begun!  It was so nice to be together after about 8 months apart.  I have no idea how […]
