A window inside life at Augustana College

Not Just a Bunch of Meetings

Summer Connection was a whirlwind of new faces, tons of information and a lot of fun.  I met so many people and there is no way I can remember all of their faces or names.  Every experience helped me validate that I had indeed made the right decision by choosing Augustana.  I am not going […]

Summer Connection

Hello all!  I am so excited to write my first blog post about Augustana! 🙂 I had summer connection today and it was such a blast! The ice breaker questions that the peer mentors asked were pretty funny and made you think, that’s for sure! I am so glad to have met quite a few […]

Moving Forward

You would think, or I least I did, that by leaving high school you leave all the high school issues behind. By that, I mean all the stereotypes or cliques you thought were only in high school. Today, I realized this wasn’t the case. There are all types of people here. Jocks, klutzes, the obnoxiously loud […]

It WILL work this time!

By that, I mean my focus this term. For whatever reason, there is a mental block I’ve had at the beginning of each term, mostly when having to focus on what needs to be done for classes. These are the contributing factors to my new found confidence: Most of my friends are pledging. My main […]

How I goats taught me about life

Since I got accepted to Augie, I’ve been pretty sure of what I would major in once I got the chance to declare it. Oh, Leslie, how stupid you are… Why is it that during your first few weeks at school, you’re asked what you want to major in. Everytime I had to introduce myself, I […]

3 break…4 break…3 break!

It’s been a while since my last blog. Last time I did this, I had just registered for winter term classes and was about to go on fall break. Many things have happened since then. I had expected winter term to be pretty much just like fall term, but was I wrong! There is a […]

Straight Dope: a discovery about sleep

note: I realize a good amount of my posts are about sleep; there is a very good reason for this (I LOVE IT). For those curious enough to check them out: 1 2 3 4 Last night while putting off my class work, like always, I came across The Straight Dope, which is quite dope. […]

Fall break & winter term

Every fall break I tell myself I’m going to be productive and get a lot accomplished. I’m always going to read at least 10 educational books, apply to a lot of internships, and hang out with my friends every day. While I can’t say I had the most productive fall break, I watched seasons 4-6 […]

Back on campus

So I know it’s been awhile since I had the chance to blog and I apologize for not keeping everyone updated. Finals week was….interesting. I practically lived in the library. The finals themselves were a tiny bit less terrifying than I thought they would be. All the studying paid off and I am happy with […]

How I have progressed… or not

As a part of my LSFY portfolio, I had to write about how I believed to have done in the class; sadly, I don’t think I did as well as I was capable. As a result, my self assessment wasn’t too kind. Since we were allowed to write in the form of poetry, I did […]
