    Halle's Bio:
    Hello, my name is Halle Nystrom and I'm a grad student at the College of St. Scholastica (I also did my undergrad here). I chose Duluth because it's the perfect amount of distance from home, which is about a 4.5 hour drive for me. I think Duluth is an easy place to adapt to and to fall in love with at the same time. Please feel free to comment on my posts and ask any questions!

Online Class Tips 

by / July 17th, 2017 / No Comments »
Sometimes taking an online class is overwhelming. This is especially true if you don't know anyone in the class either! My first tip is to read your classmate's introductions in your first discussion post. Get to know the students that are now in the same boat as you. Check to see if you know anyone, if you do, it wouldn't hurt to reach out to them and become "class buddies" so you can always text and email each other when you have questions or need encouragement. This doesn't mean to work on everything together!! This means, to hold each other accountable and help if you have a question on something. It's nice to have someone to reach out to! My next tip is to not be afraid to post questions or to email your professor if you need help after you have exhausted all of your resources available to you! Finally, get your work done on time and do not procrastinate in online classes. You will thank yourself in the long run if you do your work in a timely order!

Missed an Assignment?

by / July 11th, 2017 / No Comments »
Have you missed an assignment or are you about to due to sickness or an emergency? Sometimes you wonder how you should go about telling your professor. I'm here to help! I've been through this a lot because I have a chronic condition, and freshmen year I had the classic freshmen illnesses that may get you too! Coming to a new school means you are exposed to lots of new people, new germs, new bacteria, and new stresses on the body! It's common to catch a simple cold your first year at school. Although a common cold will not keep you from class sometimes more serious illness like Mono or the Flu can keep you from making it to class. The first thing you should do is email or call your professor as soon as possible! It's beneficial to get a note from the nurse as well. Professors are usually understanding if you let them know ahead of time and send them a professional and sincere email detailing what's going on. Never be afraid to contact the professors, at CSS the professors truly are there to help you succeed. My next advice would be to do what you can, when you can, and submit your missed work as soon as possible when you are able! Drink lots of water, get proper sleep, and make sure to be washing your hands, bedding, and dorm surfaces often! 

Fitness Classes

This summer I am really missing the on campus fitness classes that CSS offers! I love being able to drive to campus for free classes including yoga, cardio, sculpting, and even cycling! The fitness center is my favorite place to relax and destress!

If you live in Duluth or are considering here as your future college home, you should know that the weather can be very inconsistent especially in the early summer! Here is a snap shot from last night. Yesterday it was 80 all day and today it is mid 50s! Photo by Halle Nystrom

Summer School

by / May 22nd, 2017 / Comments Off on Summer School

Many students take summer school! Summer school is a great way to catch up on classes if you have made a recent major change. This is also normal for graduate school. Possibly even a good option for you if you want to graduate early! I am taking 1 class this summer and it starts very soon! This summer I will talk all about how to balance summer fun with studies, and even a part time job! Stay tuned in!
