    Gabi's Bio:
    I love being considered a “city girl” although St. Paul seems small to me sometimes. I chose to come to Duluth for aesthetic reasons and the sense of community that Scholastica embodies. Being in three clubs, a student senator, full credit load, and two part time jobs, I keep myself very busy. I wouldn't trade it for anything! We need to take advantage of the prime time in our life. These four years go by faster than high school, and I’m just trying to enjoy every moment of it!

Riding the bus

A great thing about Duluth is the DTA. I ride it everyday since I don’t have a car. As a student we get to use our ID to ride it for “free” which is really nice. The bus is still way more affordable than the fare in the cities. Either way, as a student you definitely want to get out and take the bus. There are 3 different routes that come to campus, and those buses can connect you to even more routes.

Usually I am really happy with the bus system. However, due to me sleeping in late I wasn’t too happy this morning. To get to my 8 am class I try to leave my house by 7:15 because it takes me two buses to get to campus. Well… today I woke up at 7:09 and was rushing to grab everything I needed for my 12+ hour day on campus consisting of 4 classes and work. I didn’t want to forget anything. In the end I chose to leave even though I had remembered that I didn’t have my accounting textbook. Anyways… I got to the bus stop at 7:27 and the bus came at 7:32… Sounds okay, right? Well… The 12 bus leaves UMD anywhere from 7:44-7:47… JUST AS WE WERE PULLING UP TO UMD… The 12 drives away. So I’m thinking “Great, now I get to walk to Scholastica with my backpack and art folder”. I started walking and then thought maybe the 18 route would be leaving towards Scholastica. IT WAS IT WAS IT WAS!! I hopped on and it left UMD at 8, so I got to class at 8:10.

Pretty chaotic day for only being 8:10 AM. It was definitely my fault for sleeping in and running late, but sometimes you just want to blame everything on a bus that leaves a little bit early!!
