Intramurals!

Monday, September 10th, 2018

If you are interested in joining an intramural sport this fall, there are a variety of different sports you can choose from. However, the deadline is fast approaching. The deadline is set for this Friday, September 14th so if you think you want to sign up for a sport, it is in your best interest to do so as soon as possible. Some of the sports offered for this fall include flag football, basketball, volleyball, badminton, and knockerball. The seasons for each sport run from September 16th until October 26th and are a great way to hang out with your friends and make new ones, as well, in a competitive, but fun environment. Here is the link to sign up if you are interested: http://www.imleagues.com/spa/intramural/fcc8a703a4ba4df1a3defcd0c9ccc152/home. And if you don’t have enough people to form a team of your own, you can still sign up and join another!

Super Big Block Party

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

This coming Saturday in Duluth is the fourth annual Super Big Block Party. This event includes a great lineup of local artists and bands, food trucks, beverage tents, and a lot more. The headlining band is Hippo Campus, which is one of my favorite bands right now. I have seen them multiple times and they always put on a great show. The event runs from 1:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and if you are over 21, there is also an after party with more live music that you can attend. General admission tickets are just $25 for the day or $35 if you get them the day of the event. I am really looking forward to this event and I hope to see some of you there.

Renting Textbooks

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

If you have not yet ordered your textbooks and are trying to find the cheapest option, I would highly suggest renting them on Amazon. I have been doing this for three years and I was able to rent all of my books this semester for under $100. They allow you to keep the books all semester and then return them when you are done. You can just go to a UPS store (there is one by Erbert’s and Gerbert’s) and send them back with free shipping guaranteed. Sometimes if a book is needed for your major and you think you will use it after college or need to refer to it in a later class, buying can be a better option, but for your generals, I would definitely look into just renting your books to save some money!

On Campus Jobs

Tuesday, September 4th, 2018

On campus jobs are a great way to make extra money while in college and CSS offers a lot of different jobs for students that work around your class schedules. I have been working as a web developer on campus for about six months now and not only is it a great college job, but it is giving me great experience doing real world projects, as well. Furthermore, I am able to get credits to go towards my major in addition to earning money. If you are interested in an on campus job, you can go to https://www.csshrjobs.com to see what jobs are currently available.
