    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Last Day in London

by / June 4th, 2017 / Comments Off on Last Day in London

Today was my last full day in London! I am happy to say I spent it being lazy, enjoying the sunshine, and eating really good food. Overall, my London experience has been great. I've tried new foods, visited new places, learned new things, and had grand adventures. I highly recommend looking into the numerous Study Abroad programs St. Scholastica has to offer. It's important for every student to step outside their comfort zones during college and for me, and as Duluth is my hometown, that was my comfort zone. This year I have more than quadrupled the amount of U.S. States I have visited as well as foreign countries. Go abroad! Trust me, just do it!

The London Eye

by / June 3rd, 2017 / Comments Off on The London Eye

What a way to end the London Study Abroad program! For our last full day of activities together, before everyone starts leaving for flights home and to other countries, we all jumped on the London Eye for the most beautiful view in the city. The London Eye is located on the south bank of the river Thames. Also known as the Millennium Wheel, is a Ferris wheel that opened December 31st, 1999 to celebrate the transition into the new millennium. At the time, it was the worlds largest Ferris wheel and it continues to be Europes tallest ferris wheel. It has an estimated 3.5 million visitors every year, making it the most visited tourist attraction in London. It was so fun standing at the top with my classmates pointing to where we ate dinner and trying to find our hotel. I am so glad this view will be one of the last things I remember about my travels here.

Homesick

Three weeks down and one week to go until I am back in beautiful Duluth! The London Study Abroad Program with the English and Theater Department has been a fantastic trip. I have enjoyed historical locations, magnificent shows, and experiencing a culture different than my own. However, I realized how ready I am to go home when we walked through the "pine" section of Kew Gardens. All of a sudden it smelled like home! I am loving my time here but I am ready to sleep in my bed, see my family, and eat some terrible, sugary, American food! 

Local Music: Lake Effect

by / June 2nd, 2017 / Comments Off on Local Music: Lake Effect

My last night before I left for London was spent enjoying some local music at a small bar. Lake Effect is a rock band that plays in Duluth and the McGregor Area and specializes is classic rock, old school rock, new age rock, and country. They've been around for a few years but I only heard about them recently as I am friends with the drummer. Mostly they play at bars but they are also available for hire for dances, benefits, parties, and more. While I prefer swing dancing, I still had fun dancing up a storm as I jammed out to some Bowling for Soup!
