A window inside life at Augustana College

Lacrosse season is upon us

Earlier this week I worked the men’s lacrosse home-opener inputting live stats from the pressbox at Thorson-Lucken Field. That chilly evening saw the Vikings set several records in their 20-1 win over Dubuque. The single game record of 31 points was upped to 33 as Augie scored 20 goals and assisted 13 of them, which […]

First Day of my Internship!

It has been awhile since I have posted a blog but for anyone that is reading this post there will be a lot more where this is coming from. One of the academic requirements for my internship is to keep a blog regarding what I am up to at my internship as well as my […]

Finals Week – Round 8

I’m just now realizing that I am closer to graduating from college than I am from having started college, as in I’ve completed 2.66 years here and I only have 1.3 years left. It’s amazing how time flies and I can’t believe that this is my eighth finals week at Augustana. This means I only have […]

What is “thankfulness” anyway?

Hi everyone! So I’m new here but for my first post I decided to submit my Observer article about thankfulness! If you have any comments, leave ’em! I’d love to hear what you’re thankful for! 😀   Well it’s that time of year again: crunching leaves, bonfires, cozy sweaters, Thanksgiving, and endless posts, greeting cards, […]

My Thanksgiving On Campus

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a good time Black Friday shopping with their friends and family. You know, when you go to a college that is half way across the country from where you live, its not cheap flying back and forth on breaks. It does suck being away from your family […]

A quick Tuesday night post

Hello again! Tonight I worked the women’s basketball game against Clarke University which Augustana won 80-60, a pretty good win over a team that was 6-3 coming into the contest.  Working in the sports information office as much as I do, I know where to find interesting statistics such as Augustana women’s basketball has never […]

Senior year is here already

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I will attempt to offer some insight into what it is like being a senior at Augustana as well as my involvement in the sports information office at the school among other things. First things first, you should know what I mean by sports information because I will […]

Freshman Year Fall Term in Pictures

Already Week 3???

Whoever does not believe time flies fast is all sorts of crazy. I cannot believe that week three is about to begin, its seems like only yesterday I arrived.. and I have been here 2 weeks longer than most people because of work! This just shows how amazing Augustana truly is, my friends and everything […]

Augustana People: Sam Mago, the last scion of House Mago.

I imagine being one of the Mago brothers is akin to roasting marshmallows on a summer night after watching the Baby Sitters Club movie where Larisa Oleynik isn’t playing Alex Mack or being secretive about it. The night would start out that way until someone called Zeus and told him Al Roker stole his lightning bolts […]
