The Final Lap of One Race Leads to the Beginning of Another

by / January 20th, 2016 / Comments Off on The Final Lap of One Race Leads to the Beginning of Another
As we begin the second semester, my final semester here at the College of St. Scholastica, I have had time to reflect on the past three and a half years. The bonds and relationships created, the new stories written down and old ones remembered, and the everlasting, wonderful time spent within these walls are things we can all cherish forever. As I begin the final chapter of my Undergraduate work here at CSS I am reminded of just how fortunate I am to be living my dream and sharing it with best friends who were strangers just a few years ago. Although this is the end of the line for many, in their studies at CSS, it is the beginning of another chapter for others. I received news this morning that I have been accepted to continue my studies within these walls I call home as an aspiring Physical Therapist in the Doctoral program offered here at CSS. I couldn't have been happier than reading a letter telling me that I will be able to attend school here for three more years, marking the beginning of a new adventure. Have a blessed week!

Christmas Is In the Air

by / December 17th, 2015 / Comments Off on Christmas Is In the Air

Earlier today, as they do every year, a group of faculty and staff accompanied by students and Benedictine Sisters walked around campus singing songs of praise and joy to the Christmas Spirit. Caroling around campus on the day before finals in the fall semester is a favorite for many students and it is something that I genuinely look forward to every year. The group of carolers walks around the Science Building making a stop in the Benedictine Commons to spread holiday cheer, Storms Den in Tower Hall, and every floor from there on out until they reach the music department. A beautiful chorus filled with joy and release really warms hearts and is just another reason why I am fortunate to be a Saint! Read the rest of this entry »

Study Break

by / December 15th, 2015 / Comments Off on Study Break

Amidst all of the preparation for finals coming up within the next week, there were plenty of activities on campus for students to celebrate and enjoy the season. The school put on a free dinner and Santa Claus visit for children in the Greenview Dining Room and Somers Main Lounge. Afterwards the Lady's Basketball Team took on Stout in a losing effort and the Men's Basketball Team took Crossroads College's best punches and won a nail biter. The Saints' are off until after Christmas. Happy Finals! Read the rest of this entry »

Dance the Night Away

Tonight at the halftime break, for both Men's and Women's Basketball against Northland College, the Saints Dance Team performed separate Hip/Hop dance routines that they will showcase next semester in competition. While providing a little extra entertainment for the Saints' faithful they were also able to gain live experience before performing in the regional competition. Pictured below is the Saints Dance Crew mid performance of the Men's game featuring a great group of women. Read the rest of this entry »

Exercise Physiology – One Last Ride

by / December 10th, 2015 / Comments Off on Exercise Physiology – One Last Ride

It has been such a wonderful adventure over the past few years here at Scholastica. Of the many wonderful people I have met, some of the best times I have found has been the joys of having classes with this group of amazing people. As exercise physiology students we had the privilege of getting to know one another on a much deeper level than other majors because of our lab time and experiences each and every week. These pictures are the only ones taken of this class as a whole and they represent our serious and comedic sides. The class below is my senior class, most graduating in the spring of 2016, some even sooner, and it has been a pleasure to have known each and every one of these Saints. Read the rest of this entry »
