A window inside life at Augustana College


Okay, so I will admit that I have been stressed out just as much as everyone else because of week 10, but to be honest, whenever I can, I want to get my mind off finals. So I’m not going to complain to you about how stressful week 10 is. Instead, I’m going to talk about the apparel needed for college, as well as the apparel needed for Augie in general.

When in doubt, talk about clothes/useful things 🙂   (Seriously, when I have a bad day I take a quick trip to Target, get a frappuccino from starbucks, and walk around the store and look at everything.)

Here’s the list of things I have personally needed throughout the first trimester here at Augie. While some of them might seem like “well duh things”, I really didn’t appreciate them until I actually needed them…

  • Umbrella 
  • Rain boots
  • Jackets – but not just any jackets, jackets with hoods.
  • Warm winter boots
  • Tennis shoes
  • Robe
  • Hat
  • Gloves
  • Scarves (fashion scarves work too) 😉
  • Mini-satchel – used for phone, keys, lanyard, change purse, and other small items
  • Durable, but comfy backpack
  • Cheap plastic coffee mugs/water bottles

And right now, I believe that is all I can think of. I hope this helped someone, and if not, maybe it gave someone else an idea of something else to buy!


Have a great day!
