School of Business and Technology Club

by / August 6th, 2019 / No Comments »
Today I would like to talk to you guys about the School of Business and Technology Club. When you will go to Saint-Scholastica, there will be dozens of exciting clubs to join. Today I would like to talk about the Business and technology club more specifically. It's a club that focuses on lessons and advice for students in majors in the School Business and Technology. However any students from any majors are welcome as their lessons are applicable to all majors. During the weekly meeting they will talk about how to prepare for an interview, how to prepare and make a successful elevator pitch, LinkedIn and Handshake sessions to have an attractive profile for employers. They also have this big event every year called the Fish Bowl. It is basically like Shark Tank, every day student of the school can participate and present their marketable item in front of a panel composed of professors and duluth business owners. You can participate too if you have a good idea!

Hi all! If you have not been to Duluth before and is wondering whatyou could visit, consider going to Enger Park and Enger Tower. The park is beautiful, full of different flowers of all colors and trees. I would suggest going to Enger Tower. The tower posseses a spiral staircase that goes to the top. From there you can see the whole city of Duluth from all four cardinal points. There are multiple pairs of binoculars to improve the experience. This picture shows Enger tower from the outside. The other picture shows in Enger Park: the Peace Bell. It's an American-Japanese gift from Duluth's city sister Ohara-Isumi. It has a incredible view on Duluth as well and is a beautiful piece of architecture. It's vey common to see weddings happenning there.  Those two places are places visited often by the saints at Saint-Scholastica. It's a must see in this city! Read the rest of this entry »

Research for Credit

by / July 14th, 2019 / Comments Off on Research for Credit
An important part of applying to Ph.D. programs in psychology is having plenty of research experience. Last year, I did this ‘extracurricularly’: I continued working online for the lab in which I worked over summer at a different university. It was roughly a 10-hours-a-week commitment, which is not too limiting alone, but can become a little cumbersome when you already have other duties in addition to school and are trying to coordinate all of them.  Read the rest of this entry »
