Weekend Plans

by / April 20th, 2018 / No Comments »
I'm pretty sure the only way I usually make it through the week is to plan for my weekends, AKA I live for weekends in college.  For example, this weekend is Alumni Volleyball weekend, so there will be tons of families and old CSS Alumni that will come and play against the CSS Volleyball team.  My sister and her roommate were both CSS Volleyball Alum and will be staying at my house this weekend.  I'm really looking forward to hanging out with them as well as some of the old alumni that I haven't seen in what seems like ages.  Other than that, I know that Sunday is Earth day and predicted to be around 60 degrees outside, so you betcha bottom dollar I will be spending at least a little bit of my day outside.  Even though it doesn't seem all that exciting, weekends are usually stress-free and super duper fun because of that.  I hope everyone enjoys the beautiful weather we are expected to have this weekend!!!

SBT Career Summit

by / April 19th, 2018 / No Comments »
The School of Business and Technology held its first Career Summit today. This event was organized by MBA student Zhara Davies, along in hand with Career Services and other CSS students. I got to attend the 2nd session which included the following talks: " Networking 101 - How to Build Personal Relationships" and "Digital Branding- Your Digital Personal". Both Amsoil's Rob Stenberg and Aimclear's Manny Rivas delivered very interesting presentations. Through the first one I had the opportunity to learn more about how to establish a conversation in which I get to connect with whom I am speaking to by asking them more about themselves. The second talk revolved around the different platforms one can use to keep up to date with the different industries, as well as emphasized on the impact our social media accounts can have when being considered for future job opportunities.

Winter No More

Spring? Is that you? Today in Duluth, MN, we actually got a taste of spring! In fact, it got above 50 degrees, so that means it is basically summer here. It was a nice day to walk from class to class in a t-shirt and soak up some sun. This warm weather has me and everyone else feeling hopeful that winter is coming to an end. I certainly hope so! Here in the dorms, everyone walks around looking like ghosts because it has been winter for so long, but not any more. The sun is out and summer is coming! Baseball and softball actually got to play games today after having many of their games postponed, so I am sure they are feeling good. A friend of mine informed me that as of today, 19 days until I get to go home for the summer and enjoy the stress free life. The countdown is on.

Warmth!!!

I really can't keep up with Duluth and it's recent weather events, but I do know that I have been liking these past couple of days!!! There was the big snow storm on Saturday-Sunday, and then really nice weather ever since then.  Almost all the snow is gone already, and seriously today is close to 50 degrees! I'm really enjoying the recent weather and would prefer no more snow until next winter.  Today finally feels like a spring day, and it makes me feel as if summer is coming soon enough.  The only bad part about having nice weather is that I want to be outside, when I should be working on all the homework that I have these LAST FEW WEEKS of school.  So crazy.  I'm not ready to be done, yet so ready at the same time.  This year has flown by, so hopefully these last few weeks have beautiful weather and just go smoothly in general.  Happy Spring people!!! Finally!!!!

Wow! This post is my 500th blog post since beginning this job. I began blogging in April 2015 with goals to reach out to as many prospective students as possible. Today, I continue to try and give an accurate representation of life as a undergrad and grad student at the College of St. Scholastica. It has been a wonderful experience and I am very thankful for the opportunity to share my perspective and adventures with so many individuals! Read the rest of this entry »
