CSS Surveys

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

Over the past 6 years of being a part of the St. Scholastica community, as both an undergraduate and graduate student, I have noticed the college does a really great job at taking students’ point of views, suggestions, and best interest into account when making changes geared at bettering the college. We most recently had an e-mail sent out from the Vice President of Student Affairs, Steve Lyons, that was requesting students to answer a 13 question survey for the CSS Strategic Planning Committee (e-mail below). It is really nice that the college appreciates the students thoughts and ideas when it comes to the important decisions of the school. Throughout the year there are numerous student satisfaction surveys sent out. I highly recommend filling these out, because your participation is greatly appreciated and not overlooked! CSS is constantly keeping your best interest in mind and looking to make your time here at CSS the most rewarding college experience possible.

March Into Mentoring

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

I was on tv for one whole second last Friday! March Into Mentoring is a campaign hosted by Mentor Duluth, a program I am proud to volunteer for, to get 31 new mentors to sign up in 31 days! Mentor Duluth matches youth in the community with responsible adults to do fun activities together. My match and I are currently celebrating our two year anniversary! Taleea is a freshman in high school and we spend a lot of time doing arts and crafts, cooking, seeing movies, and talking about college planning. In our one second television debut, we are dancing in the rain at the annual Mentor Duluth barbecue. Mentoring has been a great experience for me and Taleea and I highly encourage you to consider joining Mentor Duluth, especially if you plan to live in Duluth over the summers. Taleeas little brother has been on the waiting list for a mentor for over two years and so have 200+ other children. Join Mentor Duluth, be a part of the community, and make a difference in someone’s life. 

Safe Haven + Scholastica Collaboration

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Today Sarah Brokke Erickson’s Dignitas class and a few others (including me!) Went to work on the murals at the Prove. A lot of work was done yesterday, so today our jobs were to build on that and add details. Paintings require lots and lots of layers… You always think you have enough paint and you totally don’t. Today we had some special guests join us working on the mural. Children came to work with us today and it was awesome! A lot of us were assigned painting buddies and we worked with the kids. My buddy and I painted a lot of water currents. I think it’s so cool that the kids are able to invest in and interact with the painting that will go in their current home. I think it really infuses a sense of identity and ownership. Stay tuned for more painting updates! We’ll be working on the mural until April!
