A window inside life at Augustana College

So Many Sisters!

For anyone who is debating Greek Life in college…I have to say that I was right there with you for a long time. I was terrified of hazing and mean girls and not being chosen for the sorority that I wanted to join. Let me tell you what, though. Joining Greek Life is the best […]

Fall has begun!

Hi everyone!  Well there seems to be a trend on Facebook this last week… Wednesday was “National Mean Girls Day” so naturally everyone and their brother were posting quotes from the movie “Mean Girls”, but there was also the presidential debate which evoked more status’s pertaining to the political campaigns. Then some people were mashing […]

Service, service, service!!

The past couple of weeks, I have had the wonderful opportunity to do some volunteer work around the Quad City area. Last week, I went to the Children’s Therapy Center with the girls from ESA (Epsilon Sigma Alpha – the service sorority that I am joining.) At the CTC, we went around the center and […]

Labor Day/ Week 3

Augustana is finally becoming my second home, and it could not have happened sooner.   Last Friday, I went home to DeKalb for the long weekend, and I was so glad I decided to go (so was my dad). When we got home, the whole family went out to our favorite local restaurant, The Junction, […]

Theatre People

(Shut up, WordPress; I did not spell ‘theatre’ wrong) So, week one is done. Wait no. My brother is telling me the weeks here end on Sunday. 26 hours to go, I guess. I’m adjusting well. Getting into the mix of things. Slowly but surely making friends. My plan so far is to meet people […]

Moving In, Moving On

The day that I thought would never arrive is finally here! (Well, it arrived last Thursday) I woke up at 5am to make my journey to Augustana. As the windshield was being pounded with rain and the sky turned the color of midnight, I prayed that this wasn’t some omen telling me to turn around […]

Week One = Done.

Well, I’m so glad to have survived my first week of college!  A ton of homework, yes, but some really awesome professors!  I’m amazed that most of them are less than 40 years old. (One of them, I swear, doesn’t even look old enough to have a Ph.D.  I literally sat in my seat and […]

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 […]

As we enter the last bend of summer

I can not believe that summer is coming to a fast end! I move-in in 21 days. 21 days left of summer. I can not believe it! 3 weeks and then I will be moving into Andreen! I was so happy to find out my roommate and where I will be staying, even if Andreen […]
