ROCK ISLAND, ILLINOIS (April 14, 2023) Augustana College senior Alison Ogden, an accounting, data analytics and art history triple major from Silvis, Illinois, was nominated to submit a “More Than I Imagined” profile by Dr Olivia Melton, assistant professor of accounting.

Annually, faculty nominate Augustana's seniors who have achieved remarkable academic or personal growth to appear in the college's “More Than I Imagined” series. Read Ogden's profile at More Than I Imagined.

Dr Melton Ogden is an outstanding example of what a student can accomplish at Augustana.

"She has successfully navigated commitments on campus, including the women's swim team, with her internships and her major programs to make the most out of her time here. She has always been happy to share her experiences with new and prospective students to illustrate what is possible in four years at Augie. I know she will be just as successful after graduation as she has been here."
