Just finished week one of pledging. Not a whole lot to say but it has been a little overwhelming and a test of my time management. Spring term has been great so far and it can only get better from here. I’m meeting so many people and even alumni that I cant think of all the names. My experience at Augustana is great and I cant say i regret anything I’ve done so far. I just hope that others are having the experience I am getting.Ā 

Week 9 and 10 have been busy but can’t wait until Texas trip with my golf bros this spring… Then its back to campus for pledging.

And the recruitment for Augustana greek life begins!!!

Couldn’t be more excited to meet more people and get a feel for the different fraternities.

Haven’t posted in awhile but the new year and birthday has been wonderful. Optimistic about the rest of Winter term and cant wait to see all my friends.

- Getting slammed with homework this next two weeks but I cant get out of the holiday laziness. Need to step it up starting today.

Fall Break

A week ago today I got to come home after a long and vigorous finals week. I couldn’t have been happier to see family and friends that I haven’t seen in months. Over fall break I got to sleep in for the first timeĀ in awhile and it never felt better :).Ā 

Break has been good but I cant wait to get back to campus and be with friends. Winter term is going to be a little harder of a term but I am focused and determined to makeĀ it the best I can. I’m so close toĀ finishing all my prerequisites forĀ an assistantĀ athletic trainer position as well. Couple more volunteer hours and I’m on my way. Ā Ā 

This is Me

My name is Kiefer Kious and I am attending Augustana College. I couldnā€™t be happier with the decision I made to come here. I am a Pre Med Major and a Spanish Minor.

I play golf for the Vikings in the fall and in the spring. Coming to Augustana I was a bit nervous but after only a couple days here I couldnā€™t have felt any more at home. By far one of the greatest parts about this place is the friends that you make. I donā€™t know what it would be like without my group of friends.

Coming into college people are nervous about meeting people and making friends but there is no one singled out at Augustana. Everyone I have talked to has the same thing to say, it is easy to find that group you fit in with and you even make friends with different groups of people.

So far this term I have learned better time management and even better studying skills. I have a long road ahead of me in the medical field but I wouldnā€™t spend it any where else besides Augie.
