A window inside life at Augustana College

Random Compliment Day

Time: September 19th, 9pm-ish Location: Seminary Hall (mostly) Narrator: energetic and a bit dumb as a result of a long day Generally I don’t pay attention to made up event invitations on Facebook, but today was a definite exception. Since arriving on campus, I have befriended a lovely young lady named Audrey. She frequently gives […]

I wanna be the very best!

Like no one ever was!! (Pokemon anyone?) This weekend I attended LeaderQUEST!  Don’t know what that is? Neither did I! I received a letter in my mail box about two weeks ago informing me I was selected to attend LeaderQUEST in an effort to better my leadership skills as well as meet current or future […]

A Ton of Bricks

                The proverbial weight of the whole college experience and what I was aiming to do with my life hadn’t fully hit me… at least it hadn’t until Friday, September 16th at around 4 P.M in the evening while I sat near the back of room 108 in the geology building. As I sat in […]

Home Sweet Augie

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a month since school started– time really does fly by! This is my very first blog post, so bare with me:) I’ve  been keeping myself super busy this year just because last year I wasn’t as involved as I wanted to be, and the same applies to my […]

Augie Chic

I am DIY-Fashion-Pop-Culture obsessed!!! I don’t think anyone watches as much E! or HGTV as much as I do. And if someone wishes to challege that, then I happily accept it 🙂 But the reason for this post is to announce my intentions with this blog. I want to highlight Augie’s oh-so chic fashion forward […]

Livin’ it up in a Lounge

Well, hello, world of future Augustana students. My very first post will be about something most of you are probably anxious about: where you’re going to live. Do a little research, and you’ll find that there are 5 residence halls – Westerlin, Erickson, Swanson, Andreen and Seminary. But something you won’t find nice little photos […]

Thinking about the Future

Hello everyone! This week has been full of talk about vocation so I thought I would let you in on what I want for my future. I came to Augustana with the full intention of double majoring in Business and Music with a minor in Spanish. I knew what I wanted to do in life […]

The “Wing Leader”

 Camp Kesem is new to Augie. Just another great thing that Augie does. Allison is on the fundraising committee and helped to get our big group together. Camp Kesem is a week long camp that is for kids with parents that have cancer, had cancer, or have passed away because of cancer. What a fun […]

Learning How To (Not) Fail

So this is my first blog post, yay! It is the Sunday before Week 5 starts which I’ve come to learn means being busy, busy, busy! Even though I only have three classes, I have no free time. I am inundated in homework (most of it for my Logos class.) Other than classes and homework, […]

WOW! My first month in a nut shell.

Wow, a month ago today I moved into my room. I live in Seminary Hall and this month has been amazing.  A lot has happened so I think maybe a quick recap would be nice. I have joined STAND/Amnesty, Circle K, Emerge, Lower Campus Council, and a few other great groups. I have met a […]
