First Snow!

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

October 11th, 2018, the day of first snowfall in Duluth, MN! I woke up this morning to see the familiar white, fluffy stuff on the ground. I was a little shocked because I was not aware it was going to snow last night since it has been raining for the past week or so straight. Though I know this little bit of snow will not last long, it has me thinking of the winter ahead, and reminds me it is time to put my shovel, scraper, and sand in my car so I can drive in the snow. I like the snow, but I think it is a little too early to hang around; Thanksgiving and beyond, bring on the snow!

Have you seen the sun lately?

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

It has been dreary weather after dreary weather in Duluth. I am sometimes at loggerheads with myself when it comes to deciding what to wear when the weather forecast reads like “sunny in the morning, rain in the afternoon, icy winds and non-stop cold in the early evening“! Not to despair, next week it’s expected to be sunny – at some point late in the week. In the meantime, the challenge is to stay as warm and dry as possible! I have slowly started to resurface my winter coats and gear as fall season seems to have lasted as long as snow in the Sahara. As I miss the bright sun more and more, I am reminded of the Bright Lights program run by the CSS WellU office. (more…)

Community Day

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

Community Day is tomorrow! It is an annual tradition held on a Wednesday for both semester. It is a time where all students go out and volunteer in the community. The entire freshman class will do volunteer within their Dignitas class. Sports teams do volunteering with their team. Student senate goes and volunteer in a group, and several clubs, faculty, staff celebrate community day with volunteering! It is a way to show our core value at Scholastica and to give back to a community who supports us! I will be volunteering with student senate and soccer team. I will collect trash in the highway as well as reading to students at an elementary school. It is always great to give back !
