A window inside life at Augustana College

Crispy Leaves

If you are like me, you leave an extra few minutes early for class, just to enjoy the leaves changing and also to stomp on those crunchy leaves. Yes, I’m one of those people who go out of their way just to step on that crispy looking leaf. The slough path, although long and chilly […]

A Wonderful Surprise

You know those days that you wake up, see the sun shining but then look at the weather and realize it is 30 degrees outside? Those days are teasing. It’s like the weather wants you to go outside and enjoy the fall air, but its 30 degrees so you have to bundle yourself in layers […]

Getting used to it…

So I went home this weekend, and it was really weird. I mean, when I was home I felt at home, but I also knew that Augie was my home as well. I missed my family a ton and it was sad to say goodbye to them. I think they have gotten used to me […]

The Crazy Life of a College Student!!(If

I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting as often as I should. I literally have been CRAZY busy! For one thing I’m pledging  APO the national service fraternity on campus. I am SO excited and I know it is gonna open up ore doors for me. I am meeting a lot more upperclassmen that are really awesome. […]

Being a leader!

Getting involved has been the best thing that I have done so far in my career at Augie. In high school I was always extremely involved, whether it was Editor-In-Chief of the Yearbook or in charge of the Costume Crew, I was always doing something. Nothing has changed from the time I finished my senior […]

Know You’re Not Alone

Week 2 is almost done! Just one more class to go. (: I’ve accomplished a lot this week. I finished my first LSFY paper. HALLELUJAH! That was not a pleasant experience; so much work went into the paper. I hope it turns out well… So different from any paper I wrote in high school, and […]

The time has come

Hey everyone! Boy, has it been such a long week since I moved in last Tuesday! Attending MCO, then met my AWESOME roommate Holly, and attended a bunch of activities with my peer mentor group which was nice. But I can not get over the fact that Michael Miller kept calling everyone and everything sexy… […]

The Highlights of Fall Connection

Hey everyone! So I’ve been on campus since Thursday and have barely had time to breathe! There is so much going on and most of it has been indescribably awesome! However, with that being said, there is no competition for my favorite activity. The OSA music festival tonight blew me away.  Music is the key […]

Wait…wait…ALMOST THERE!!

So I found out my dorm last week. I’m not gonna say that I wanted to live in Andreen, but I’m still excited no matter what dorm I live in. It is no joke when people say that college is expensive. There is so much that goes into just stepping on to campus on the first […]

An Amazing Experience

As the school year drew to a close, I began to get more and more excited for my trip to Florida. I was one of 6 that were selected to partake in a week long internship at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind in St. Augustine, Florida. I was the only sophomore (going […]
