    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Listening Session at the Monastery!

by / April 9th, 2018 / No Comments »
I had a wonderful opportunity to attend a listening session at the monastery this evening. With 10 other students, we got to share our perspectives on being a Catholic at CSS and how the college can better meet our needs and provide a platform for student to grow in their faith journeys. A lot of ideas were shared, over pizza and drinks, and I look forward to find out how the college incorporates some, or best - all, of the amazing ideas that were shared! There will be another listening session tomorrow at the monastery from 5 p.m. until 6 p.m.

Math Curriculum External Review

by / March 29th, 2018 / No Comments »
Every few years (usually 2 -5, depending with major), some CSS departments conduct reviews of their curriculums and pedagogy. The Math Department was visited by 2 faculty members from another institution and they spent some time visiting the classes and meeting with CSS Math faculty and students. Being a Math major, it helps to know that the Department is open to developing and improving the program even more and engage students in the process. The reviewers had lunch with students and learned about the different classes and programs from a student's perspective.

Eh, VHS?

by / March 28th, 2018 / No Comments »
Who still remembers the good old Video Home System(VHS) tapes? Recently, one of my professors gave me a VHS tape with a presentation on a topic I have been researching. It had been ages since I last saw one and I set about to try and find a VHS player from my friends. None had one. Luckily, CSS has some classrooms that still have VHS players! I made my way up to the third floor and was able to find a classroom with one available. I shut the blinds and made a theatre out of the classroom as I watched the presentation on applications of differential equations!
