Senior Farewell Parties

by / May 8th, 2017 / Comments Off on Senior Farewell Parties

Today both the Admissions Office and the English Department had a farewell party for their seniors. The Admissions Department brought cake and a cheese and veggie tray and the English Department took us out to dinner at India Palace. The dinner was absolutely amazing. I had never tried Indian food before tonight. At the end of the dinner the English faculty gave us all our presents. They had bought each and every senior a book that not only aligned with our personalities and were right up our allies, but they also inscribed each one too. I am so grateful for my job and my English family. Knowing that this is my last week as a college student is a concept I have yet to grasp, but I'm sure it'll hit me soon... probably when it's too late and the moment has gone. [caption width="2448" id="attachment_46230" align="alignnone"] Book from the English Department faculty [/caption][caption width="2448" id="attachment_46231" align="alignnone"] Card from the Admissions Department [/caption]

Garrison Keillor

by / April 25th, 2017 / Comments Off on Garrison Keillor
Two nights ago I had the privilege to attend the kick off show of Garrison Keiller's gratitude tour. Not only did I get to go, but I was one of ten students that sat behind him on the stage. His staff asked for this, and me and a few other English majors were asked by our professors. Of course we said yes! Having this seat was kind of surreal and kind of nerve wracking. His show was sold out, which meant that I was going to be in a lot of people's view. Plus, it was an event for the public, which meant that mostly Duluth and the surrounding area's citizens were there, not students. Once it started and I got to laughing, I relaxed a little bit. As I looked out in the audience I realized that no one was even looking at me. They were all totally fascinated by him, and I couldn't blame them. He was truly a captivating, talented, homest, and real comedian. But he's also a writer, and I especially appreciate writers because the writer language has been a huge part of my undergraduate career. I wish I would have known more about him before the show, but one thing for sure is that he's funny, and having a night of laughter instead of homework was just what I needed! 

Webster Scholar Dinner

by / April 24th, 2017 / Comments Off on Webster Scholar Dinner

Tonight I joined my family, Honors peers, and Honors faculty for the Webster Scholar Dinner. This time, it was my turn to be presented with a medallion. My very first professor, Dr. Pat Hagen awarded it to me, and I was honored by that. Tonight was just another reminder that my time at CSS is coming to a close. Being an Honors student has been no easy feat, but it's allowed me to push past my boundaries and into new, uncomfortable environments. I am a better scholar and a better person because of my Honors courses. I'm particularly sad that I'll never be able to take another Honors course again. They were some of my most favorite and memorable classes. 

Student Employee Appreciation Week

by / April 11th, 2017 / Comments Off on Student Employee Appreciation Week

This week all of the departments that employ students are showing their thanks for their student employees. The Admissions Department in particular brings food every day of the week to show their appreciation. All the student employees at the school get 30% in the Saints Shop, a free pop from Storms, and free professional headshots for our LinkedIn or other professional profile. Working on campus has several perks: it's convenient, flexible, and very fun. I especially love that I don't need to "take time off" for days we don't have school in session - but we are usually given the option to work, as long as the College isn't closed.  Read the rest of this entry »

Started Freshman Year and Now We Here

by / April 10th, 2017 / Comments Off on Started Freshman Year and Now We Here

As I am gearing up to say goodbye to my undergraduate career, I can't help but think about all the memories the College has given me. Most are good, a few are bad, but one constant has always been the Dance Team, and my freshman roommate, Autumn. Autumn and I are different, and we balance each other out in a lot of ways, but we're also similar in many ways, too. We're both serious about our schooling, but we also love to have fun. However, after living with her for my freshman and sophomore year, I've realized that I am a lot neater and pickier than she is. Also, she loves shopping more than I do... she's obsessed. She still has another year of schooling left, though, so she will be in Duluth with me. We didn't live together this year, but we always try to make it a point to do things together. This picture is from Snowball, a semi formal dance, a couple weekends ago. We unintentionally dressed alike, and she let me borrow her lipstick. I have made many deep bonds with people at CSS, and I know that I have formulated friendships that will last forever. Read the rest of this entry »
