Family Time!

Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

This weekend I was blessed to have my family come and visit! Although the weather was not the greatest, we still had a lot of fun in Duluth. First of all, they brought my dog, who I have not seen since I moved out mid-August. I missed her so much and we were sure to cuddle. My parents and I also went out to eat Saturday night at Texas Roadhouse for a nice steak meal. When in college, you savor every one of the nice meals you can get that you do not have to pay for! In addition to eating, we went to Canal Park and walked around and enjoyed our time together. They also came to my soccer game, which we won 1-0. Overall it was a very nice weekend to see my family while enjoying Duluth. Go Saints!

Lake Superior Gets Angry!

Monday, April 16th, 2018

There is no doubt that Lake Superior is upset about the delay of Spring weather here in the Northland. The waves from Lake Superior were crashing into the Canal Park shores the past few days during the most recent winter storm. My girlfriend and I thought it would be a good idea to go down and check out the “beauty” of the powerful Lake Superior. We may or may not have gotten a little too close and walked away soaked. It was quite the site along the Lakewalk as everything was covered in a thick layer of ice. There is always something new to see or witness around Duluth, if you are willing to brave the elements!

Cheap Movie Tickets!

Monday, April 9th, 2018

If there is one thing that college students love to do, it’s going to movies with our friends. There is a great movie theatre in downtown Duluth called Marcus Theatres and they offer some awesome deals for college students that I wanted to mention. One of those deals is “Movie Tuesdays” where any movie is only $5 to see. They also have “Student Thursdays” where admission is only $6. The theatre is very nice and in a great location also. My friends and I are planning on taking advantage of one of these deals this week as we are planning to go see the hottest new horror movie “A Quiet Place”. One of my favorite parts about going to college here in Duluth is that there is so much happening in the city and so much to do that I am never bored. Whether it’s going to a movie, to Spirit Mountain to ski or snowboard, Chester Park, the mall, or whatever else it might be, there is no shortage of things to do for fun both in Duluth and also right on campus, as well.

Lakewalk Duluth

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Ah yes, the infamous Lakewalk! Many visitors, tourists, and even locals find themselves on the Lakewalk in Canal Park throughout the year. Some running, some biking, some walking or stepping off to take scenic pictures of Lake Superior and the surrounding parks and landmarks of Duluth. However, many people don’t realize that the Lakewalk extends far beyond just Canal Park and the Fitgers complex. The Lakewalk is actually a 7.5 mile paved path that extends from the Bayfront Festival Park all the way out to Brighton Beach along the north end of Duluth. Check out the link below and if you find yourself looking for a great place to run, bike, or even watch ships come in/out of the harbor check out the link below for a map of the Lakewalk and some good locations to do those activities..

Canal Trip

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

Today Upward Bound went to Canal Park as a group. We ate at Old Chicago and then split off into groups for our own interests. A few of my students and I collected sea glass at the beach. While we were sitting there, a giant wave came and knocked into us (okay, it was a foot tall) and washed away most of my sea glass. Nevertheless, we collected even more and brought back quite a few handfuls.
