Library Study Time

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Today I found myself in the St. Scholastica library taking a practice exam for my upcoming National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE). The library is a great spot for getting work done. The 2nd and 3rd floors are reserved for “quiet study”, and the first floor is often times used for larger group projects where some discussion goes on.

Weekend Plans

Friday, April 20th, 2018

I’m pretty sure the only way I usually make it through the week is to plan for my weekends, AKA I live for weekends in college.  For example, this weekend is Alumni Volleyball weekend, so there will be tons of families and old CSS Alumni that will come and play against the CSS Volleyball team.  My sister and her roommate were both CSS Volleyball Alum and will be staying at my house this weekend.  I’m really looking forward to hanging out with them as well as some of the old alumni that I haven’t seen in what seems like ages.  Other than that, I know that Sunday is Earth day and predicted to be around 60 degrees outside, so you betcha bottom dollar I will be spending at least a little bit of my day outside.  Even though it doesn’t seem all that exciting, weekends are usually stress-free and super duper fun because of that.  I hope everyone enjoys the beautiful weather we are expected to have this weekend!!!

Warmth!!!

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

I really can’t keep up with Duluth and it’s recent weather events, but I do know that I have been liking these past couple of days!!! There was the big snow storm on Saturday-Sunday, and then really nice weather ever since then.  Almost all the snow is gone already, and seriously today is close to 50 degrees! I’m really enjoying the recent weather and would prefer no more snow until next winter.  Today finally feels like a spring day, and it makes me feel as if summer is coming soon enough.  The only bad part about having nice weather is that I want to be outside, when I should be working on all the homework that I have these LAST FEW WEEKS of school.  So crazy.  I’m not ready to be done, yet so ready at the same time.  This year has flown by, so hopefully these last few weeks have beautiful weather and just go smoothly in general.  Happy Spring people!!! Finally!!!!

500th Post

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Wow! This post is my 500th blog post since beginning this job. I began blogging in April 2015 with goals to reach out to as many prospective students as possible. Today, I continue to try and give an accurate representation of life as a undergrad and grad student at the College of St. Scholastica. It has been a wonderful experience and I am very thankful for the opportunity to share my perspective and adventures with so many individuals!

Spring?!

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

After a weekend snow storm that accumulated 13.4 inches of snow in the Duluth area, the weather outlook is starting to show signs of spring. The weather channel is saying 50’s and 60’s for high temperatures the next 15 days! Woo get out your sunblock Duluth! In case you are looking for a reason to get outside and enjoy the warm up, the St. Scholastica baseball team has their home opener at Wade Stadium tomorrow. Check out the baseball schedule for more details!
