A window inside life at Augustana College

….I am a survivor!

I am proud to say that I survived my first college term! The past few weeks have been bitter sweet and full of new experiences. I expected leaving home to be hard, but surprising adjusted fairly easily. Changing my high school study habits was the next step. It just took a couple of days and […]

Campus in the Fall.

 I just finished my final paper before starting my fall break. One thing that helped me relax while trying to study for finals, was pulling out my camera on campus for the first time. I am really going to miss the beauty of campus in the fall. The leaves look perfect. By the time the […]

Random Observations on Finals Week

So there are probably a lot of people stressing about finals week right now. I’m not one of them. For me, my first week of finals in college has probably been my most relaxing and boring. I’m not the kind of person who has to study for hours and hours. So honestly, I just don’t have […]

Week 10!!!
