The worldwide Augustana College experience

Exit Weimar…enter new family

Lieber die Studenten vom Augustana: Louie here! We’ve now been in Germany for about three weeks. Time is flying by, but I still realize that we have about 8 weeks left here. A lot has happened since Prague, and I will now share some of the adventures: This past weekend, we went to Weimar, which […]

Quick Update from Wittenberg to Wiemar

Hey-o everyone. Here is a quick update of life here in Wittenberg. For those of you who don’t know, I play die Posaune… the trombone, and here in Wittenberg, the day we got home from Prague, there was a huge Posaunefest! I missed a lot of it but I did get a few interesting things […]

Prague. Prag. Praha.

Let us see. Did I enjoy Prague this last weekend? Eh… I mean, it was kinda, sorta, absolutely-a… amazing! Here’s a preface: this is goin’ to be one long entry people, but it is worth it. The trip to Prague was taken by train and all 13 Wittenbergers went together. After a few layovers, we […]


Ahoy from Prague (that’s Czech for ‘Hi’)   The Wittenberg group has left the tiny confines of this quaint little town and have headed off for the big city…in Eastern Europe. There is definitely a difference between Germany and the Czech Republic. I wouldn’t say it is poor, but whereas Germany is a first world […]

Wittenberg: A Little Somethin’-Somethin’

Up ’til this point in time, life has been seeming a little strange. You see people – I just spent the past week of my life rushing to pack, rushing to the airport, flying overseas, and living in a foreign country… that’s not an average week for me. Also, time is messing with my mind. […]

Hallo von Wittenberg!

What am I suppose to say?

Kurz über Wittenberg

Hello! We have all arrived safely, with no luggage mishaps. We only have the internet when we go to the university. We are living in the Cranachhaus, which is very nice. The first picture I posted is the view from our kitchen! Everything is great here in Wittenberg. It’s a really small city, but has […]

Today is the first day of the rest of my life…

…and I feel very conflicted, like being caught in the middle of a game of tug-o-war. On one hand, I see myself enjoying these next three months with the people around me, laughing, growing, and enjoying German culture. On the other hand, this will be the first time that I have been out of the country […]

First Post!

This past weekend, I moved into my apartment in Swanson. It was a fun weekend — We got everything set up, did some shopping (at the dollar store!), and braved the first early morning fire alarm of the year. But now I’m at home, sitting next to a half-packed suitcase, surrounded by schoolbooks and toiletries. […]
