A window inside life at Augustana College


Hello everyone,

I hope everyone’s year is splendid!  I apologize for not blogging in a while, but college will do that to you!!  One thing I will put out there is that the LAST TWO WEEKS OF THE TERM are STRESSFUL!!!   This isn’t HIGH SCHOOL anymore, so you better mentally prepare for all that you are going to receive.  There is an abundance of information that gets tossed at me that I sometimes don’t know what to do with it all.  I have finals in two weeks, I have another paper due, and a project to turn in! I also had to register for classes. Those are tears that are saved for later.  Finally, I had to take an ACT the other day.  That was an adventure of its own.


I will tell you that when you register, always have a game plan and back it up with other replacements.  Don’t ever walk into registration or a class without mentally preparing yourself for the unexpected.  Sometimes classes will be unavailable or classes will  taught in a vary strange ways, which I found out the hard way.  An example of a personal experience would be my psychology class.  I love Psychology, but my teacher’s  teaching style wasn’t really my kind of learning, but that isn’t the professors fault.  Always know that not all teachers will have the same style of teaching, but I pushed through it and eventually I will end the term with a B, but at least I can say I tried.  I am not the worst student and I am not the best, but my mindset is what gets me through.  Remember that nobody is perfect.  There will be people who are great test takers and don’t have to study.  There are students who have to study for long hours.  In the end, it all comes down to you.

Finish strong!!!


Good luck on finals!  Make AUGIE PROUD!!!
