A window inside life at Augustana College

The Honors Program in a Nutshell

It’s a bit early to be talking about what happens once you get your acceptance letter, as I realize that you might still be working on your application, but this post is going to be about the Honors program. When I got the Honors brochure from Admissions, I was a little confused as to precisely […]

I love TV.

I really do. I cannot even tell you how many shows I would watch on a daily basis when I lived at home and had a nice DVR to watch them on. I. Love. My. Shows. However, it is very hard to keep up with it now that I have a busy schedule with homework […]

All new experiences…

I always love when it the time comes to start new classes. For two reasons, one because I get to try new things, and two, because I get tired of always doing the same thing so I want the old classes to end. Last week was registration week for first years here at Augie. Unlike […]

My Home Away From My Home Away From Home

Is the library. I spend so much time in the library I’m considering getting my mail sent there. Well not really. But I do hang out there almost all the time. Not because I’m a nerd (even though I am and there is nothing wrong with it) but because it’s week 10 and finals start […]


Is it really already week 10? First term literally flew by. I can’t believe it’s basically over. Overall, it was pretty good. I didn’t really feel overwhelmed or stressed and I feel like I did good. Plus…I only have one final 🙂 What I’m really looking forward to is next term. I’m finally taking a […]

Homecoming Week: Augie Style

Yesterday wrapped up the last activities of Homecoming 2011.  I love Homecoming week at Augie.  There is always so much to do and it’s really nice to see all of the alumni come back (that will be me in 2 years!).  Augustana is such a tight-knit community and you can really see that during homecoming. […]

Week 9 1/2?: a (sorta) structured stream of thought

I have a tendency to just write things using stream of consciousness, eventually linking everything to make sense of it all. That is not the case here. I’ve slept too much, yet not enough and not in my own bed. The sawing of logs keeps me up at night. My parents decided to surprise me […]

Homecoming 2011 = EPIC

Homecoming this year was absolutely amazing! I participated in Sing, which was one of my favorite parts of the weekend. You can see the awesome video I made about it here — Augustana Homecoming 2011. Enjoy! 🙂 If you want to check out longer versions of Sigma Alpha Iota and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia‘s Sing performances, […]

Homecoming 2011!

What I learned this week: As much as loved homecoming in high school, homecoming in college is better! Last night was coronation and Sing, and it was so much fun! I loved watching everyone’s routines and was so impressed by everyone’s creativity and dedication! I had a great time performing on stage with APO too. […]

Goodbye Labels, Hello Me

As stressful as registration hell currently is for me, I do realize that there are a few things that I will never stop loving about college.  The main one being the one I’ve been excited for since high school. I am exactly who I want to be here. Coming to Augie gave me a fresh […]
