International Students

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

At Scholastica we have tons of International Students from England, Canada, Italy, South America, and honestly I don’t even know where else.  I know that there are tons of people from different places around the world, and I think that’s really cool that our school is so diverse.  I know that I went on a tour at CSS, they mentioned the fact that our students are very diverse in races, religions, cultures, origins, and everything like that.  I was surprised to hear that small town CSS on the hill of Duluth in Northern Minnesota that there would be so much recruitment from other places.  I was thinking about it today because of Thanksgiving Break and the fact that a lot of them probably don’t get to go home over break.  They usually end up being stuck at school, which is unfortunate.

Mentor Connection Event

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

A week ago, Matthew R. and I attended the second Mentor Connection event as Student Ambassadors of the program. Both of us graduated from the program last year and since then, we have been actively recruiting and encouraging CSS students to participate and benefit from this program. Mentor Connection is a NORTHFORCE initative that pairs local business leaders and professionals with UMD and CSS college students to create lasting relationships and valuable connections through a year-long mentorship program.

Thanksgiving Break

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

Today is the last day of school before Thanksgiving Break.  There were a ton of people who didn’t have exams this week, so they even went home over the weekend. Those people are the lucky ones because they have a whole week off.  For me, I had exams both Monday and today, and classes that I couldn’t miss.  I get to go home in 2 hours max, and you guys have no idea how excited I am.  My puppy is at home and waiting for me, plus my family I suppose too.  I am mostly excited to get a break from people and all schoolwork and just spend time with my family while I’m home.  I hope that everyone has a fabulous weekend at home or wherever they are!!

International Education Week

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Last week, CSS celebrated International Education Week – a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the US.

Culture Night

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

Last Friday, the International Club in conjuction with the Asian Student Union held its annual Culture Night in Mitchell Auditorium. I remember in my freshman year when I took part in the Fashion Show of the event. Last year, I did not participate, but like this year, I got to witness the various backgrounds and identities celebrated at CSS through poem, spoken word, music, dance, and many other art forms. As always, after the event, we got a treat from India Palace, which serves really good food that I like.
