A window inside life at Augustana College

Good Grades, Social Life, Enough Sleep…

Hey friends! I learned a very valuable lesson this afternoon as I received the results of my last Psychology test: it’s impossible to be amazing at everything. I heard somewhere that college life basically gives you the choice of two of the following three areas; good grades, social life, enough sleep. I don’t know if […]

Well, hey there, 2013!

As I arrived on campus on Sunday, I was amazed by how quickly I felt back in the swing of things. I had a great three weeks home with my family and friends, but I was beyond excited to be back with my school friends in the place that so quickly became home to me. […]

It’s Our Time

This is a video my mom’s cousin Marty Casey sings. I think this is a great new year song! (: I hope that everyone enjoyed their break off of school and are looking forward to getting back together with their Augie friends on campus on Sunday! I know I am excited to see them all […]

De-stress Week 5

It has come to that dreadful time again, mid-term week. The one week that may come close to finals week. While all your friends are arriving home from their finals week, you get to stay in class until 3:45on Friday (At least in my case). Some ways to get rid of the pre-break jitters: Watch […]

Tired of cafeteria food?

Cafeteria food can only keep you going for so long so every so often my friends and I like to venture off campus and find places to eat! Here are a few places that I would recommend checking out. The Little Rangoon This is a little restaurant tucked away on a corner of 5th Ave in Moline. It doesn’t […]

Finals

When I first started at Augie, I really wasn’t sure how I would feel about having to take finals three times per year, but now that I have gone through my first round of them, I am confident in my assumption that it will be easy! In high school, you only have to take finals […]

Haunted House

Halloween is coming up fast and there have been a some great activities on campus! From to zombie run, the haunted history tour, and the RHA haunted house to name a few. What a great way to procrastinate on studying for those finals 🙂 I was lucky enough to help work in the RHA haunted house and it was […]

EMERGE

As a first year at Augie, I was able to participate in the Emerge program. Emerge is an 8-week course designed to develop, enhance, and fine-tune leadership skills. With the advice from many professional speakers, a group service project, and an intense high-ropes course, myself and the other Emergees were able to make new friends […]

First Equestrian Show

Not many students know that Augie has an Equestrian Team. Well, we do! :)And it is made up of some awesome girls!   What does the team do? Well, normally a person would have their own horse and train and work mostly with that horse in order to show and compete. However, for the team […]

Homecoming Week

Oh dear what a week last week was! OSA had to have been PRETTY busy! I give props to all the people running the different homecoming events. They sure do know how to throw a good time! I was so glad I got to go to the Kick Off, Talent show and the Sing/Coronation last […]
