    Fatima's Bio:
    I’m a junior majoring in Biochemistry and Biology. I love being involved on campus. Our community is welcoming and full of opportunities for everyone. I’m the co-president of our school’s Amnesty International chapter, and the Editor in Chief of The Cable, the school newspaper. I tutor and mentor through Student Support Services. I am also a Chemistry lab and Dignitas teaching assistant. I’m very passionate about human rights and never afraid to be myself. I find that I am able to freely express myself through the activities I’m involved in.

Community Day at CSS!

October 5th, was Community Day.
Community Day is a long-lived tradition here at the college. It’s a day twice a year when classes are cancelled, and all faculty, staff, and especially students, are encouraged to volunteer and contribute to the larger Duluth community.
Jay Newcomb, coordinator of the program, works super hard to have many opportunities lined up for students. Participating is as easy as signing up online for whatever peaks your interest. Activities range from cleaning up brush to reading to children.

I’m a dignitas mentor this year, and I went with my class to participate in an activity for Community Day. We went to the new San Marco home, a place where homeless alcoholics can have a safe home and food. This home is unique because it is a “wet” house, and residents are not forced to quit drinking, as long as they do it in their own rooms.

It was exciting and informative for not only the first year students, but also for me and my professor.

Scholastica is unique in that the education provided here extends to knowledge you cannot find in a book— and I’m so thankful to have opportunities like this!
