A window inside life at Augustana College

The best weekend of my four years at Augie

I had the best weekend of my whole entire life this weekend. There were so many hugs and smiles and friends. To say it was magical would be an understatement. It basically started on Wednesday night when my friends and I went out to dinner at Blue Cat and then sang karaoke. I also registered […]

I’m a survivor

Destiny’s Child once said: “I’m a survivor/I’m not gon give up.” That was my motto for winter term and let me tell you – I’m a survivor.
