A window inside life at Augustana College

Fall break recap

Well, Fall Break is officially over. Somehow breaks always seems to go by super fast. Over break I visited a friend at ISU, filled out grad school applications (I finally figured out where I want to apply!), visited the dentist and doctor, and worked on my senior inquiry. Oh the joy of being a senior. […]


October 31. Halloween. That typically means candy and costumes. This year it means a political science textbook and a whole lot of notecards! But the food aspect is covered with bags of popcorn, dark chocolate, pound cake, and lots of orange juice. With my last final tomorrow, I spent my day studying for it and […]

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 […]

Mayday Parade/The Maine Concert

Instead of studying for finals and finishing the two papers I have to write, I went to Chicago with a friend to see Mayday Parade and The Maine in concert. Mayday Parade is my favorite band – ever. Period. End of story (At least since my Jonas Brothers phase). I was so glad I found […]

Oh the comfort…

You know that moment when you move into your dorm room or apartment and you see that light wood desk, that mattress sitting on a bed frame that has endless possibilities of heights, and that light wood dresser sitting lonely and completely naked? The thought that then passes through your mind is “how can I […]

Goodbye week 9…Yikes! It’s week 10!?!

Oh geez….oh geez, oh geez, oh geez…… Yup it’s that time of the term…Week 10!! AHHHH!!!! Cue the creepy Halloween music. I have been pretty calm so far this trimester, but now I am feeling the pressure. Unfortunately though, it’s not just me. Pretty much everyone I know is at least a little bit freaked […]

Preparation for homecoming!

When you only have ten weeks (plus finals) a term, time seems to go by really, really, really fast. I picked all of my classes for next term and finally got all the classes I want for once. That’s one of the perks of not being an underclassman anymore, those who aren’t in your major […]

Top 5 reasons why October is the best month of the year

5) Leaves are falling off the trees – Augustana is gorgeous in the fall! Walking down the slough path, it feels like you are in a sea of oranges, reds, and yellows. It is so wonderful walking through piles of leaves, kicking them as you go from class to class. Augustana has so many trees, […]

Childhood Catches Up

Well, to be honest- it’s been a struggling week, what with allergies, being sick, and midterms, yuck.  However….thankfully the weekend has much in store! Which brings me to my next point: Childhood, and the fact that mine has never really left me.  For example, tonight I will be going with a group of rambunctious friends for the […]

My sophomore year is still very busy and I am going into Week 7. Wow, time is flying by. This past weekend, I went home and it was great to relax with my family and catch up on work. This weekend, I plan to relax and work ahead because next week is going to very […]
