Why I chose Scholastica

by / June 21st, 2018 / No Comments »
I remember when I was a senior in high school and applying to colleges. I was that type of kid who applied to a whole bunch of colleges just to apply. My top reasons for an instsituon I wanted to attend was distance, affordability, and the community. I live in Minneapolis Minnesota and wanted to go somewhere completely different but not too far. I wanted to be much more independent by going somewhere far from home but still being able to drive back and forth within a day in case of an emergency at home. Affordability was huge for me. St. Scholastica is a private institution but offer many scholarships for students. I also found a strong warm welcoming community at scholastica which enhances my student life experience. There was no way I would of gone to a campus where I would not fee comfortable. I just wouldn’t be able to learn academically and socially. These pst 3 years have been the best years of my life!

I just received an email for the Morocco trip. It made me excited for the trip. I know it’s a long ways but I am looking forward to it. The study abroad program will cover a marketing class and will run for about two weeks during winter break. I have several friends who will go to the trip so it will make the experience a lot better! I have heard such great things of this program. I can’t wait.

Accounting Major

by / June 21st, 2018 / No Comments »
I am majoring in Accounting at scholastica. I chose my major after my second semester of my freshman year because I spoke to a senior at CSS who convinced me to do so. After I took my principles of financial accounting, I was convinced I wanted to be an accounting major. I added my second major, finance, soon after because of the correlation in the academic schema. The goal is to graduate with 150 credits to be able to sit in for the CPA examination. Having two majors was the best way to do this. I really enjoy my both majors and thinking of using my accounting background first and after a while, maybe move into a finance field.
