A window inside life at Augustana College

Am I really 21??

The year is 2016 and I feel like my years are slipping away in seconds. I remember graduating High School like it was yesterday. I remember doing my first play in 4th grade. Where has it all gone?! Many people may not admit that they are growing up, but it is true for many students […]

.:Of Fish and Snails:.

Like many college students, especially pre-vet majors such as myself, one of the first questions I asked myself was whether or not I would get a fish in college. Fish are perhaps the perfect candidate for dorm room pet, as they are low maintenance and fun to watch. Throughout my childhood I had plenty of […]

Your latest women’s lacrosse news is here!

In the last week I have had the opportunity to write seven stories reporting on Augustana’s women’s lacrosse team. The team has had a monstrous week.

Your Augustana Athletics update

To follow-up my last blog post, I wanted to catch everyone up on how the Vikings faired on Saturday.

The Vikings earned hosting rights for the CCIW […]

Putting a good spin on not so good things

In the sports information business, as in life, it is necessary that we are always able to find the good in every situation…including a 23-1 loss. Luckily, Augustana was on the 23 side of that game and I got to write a much more upbeat story. However, I was curious how the other side of […]

A quick Tuesday night post

Hello again! Tonight I worked the women’s basketball game against Clarke University which Augustana won 80-60, a pretty good win over a team that was 6-3 coming into the contest.  Working in the sports information office as much as I do, I know where to find interesting statistics such as Augustana women’s basketball has never […]
