A window inside life at Augustana College

My name is Rebecca Jawed. I’m coming from an all girls boarding school in New England. :) I’m planning on majoring in pre-med for now (who knows what will happen though). I’m also excited about the equestrian program at Augie! I don’t know to much about it aside from that it is new-ish. But it has been a big part of my life in high school so I am hoping to keep it that way in college. :) I feel like I am a typical girl for the most part. I enjoy things like shopping and hanging out with friends. I also enjoy video games (zombie games in particular, don’t judge).

Summer Connection!

From the ice-breaker to the ice cream today was a blast! And to top it off, nothing/nobody was even remotely as scary as I was prepared for 🙂 In the morning everyone seemed just as nervous and awkward as I was but all it took was sitting next to someone and simply saying “Hi, I’m […]
