A window inside life at Augustana College

Senior Year: Winter Term

This is my last term at Augustana. In just 13.5 weeks, or 96 days, I will be officially graduated from Augustana College.

I can’t believe how fast time has flown by; sometimes it seems like just yesterday that I was trekking back to the third floor of Erickson after a long day of classes and swim practice. Now I’m trudging up the stairs of my off campus house after a long day of class and two off campus jobs.

So let’s talk a little about what I have going on this term. In order to graduate you need 123 credits, I currently have 109 credits. This means order to graduate at the end of this term I am taking 14 credits. Now my mother doesn’t seem to think this will be any difficulty because she thinks the class I’m taking are easy. However, it doesn’t matter what classes you take, 14 credits is still a lot; especially because a normal credit load is between 8 and 12. So here’s what I’m taking this term:

  • Hand Ceramics – 3 credits
  • American Race and Ethnic Relations – 3 credits
  • Screening Sex: Gender, Race, and Sexuality in Popular Culture – 3 credits
  • Political Science Senior Inquiry – 3 credits
  • Sign Language – 1 credit
  • Piano Lessons – 1 credit

In case you want to know what my schedule looks like, here’s a screenshot of my Google Calendar. Notice there are time’s where things overlap. There are also things that aren’t on this calendar yet because I don’t know when they will be.

  • Orange = class
  • Purple = work
  • Blue or teal = personal meetings
  • Green = social functions
  • Pink(ish) = Sorority events

Outside of going to class and work, I am also in the process of looking for jobs in Minnesota, doing homework, and trying to have a semblance of a social life.
