Work Study

Monday, May 28th, 2018

If you are eligible for work study, I would highly recommend looking into an on campus job. There are a lot of opportunities for students to earn some extra cash at a job that respects your busy schedule as a student. I have been doing work study for one semester now as a student web developer in the college’s IT department and it has been an awesome experience. I worked 10 hours a week last semester and will work 15 hours a week next year. As a college student, you can plan out your class schedule to fit your needs and you can typically make your work schedule the same way. For example, next year I will have three classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and then I will work on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Work study jobs allow you to still be a student first, but you get to make some extra money for school too! Here is a link with more information about on campus jobs: https://www.csshrjobs.com

Scholastica’s First-ever Annual Fishbowl 2018.

Saturday, May 5th, 2018

April 24, 2018, marked the beginning of a new college tradition for Scholastica with its first-ever ‘Annual FishBowl’. A small-scale portrayal of the big-screen show-Shark Tank was the central theme of this event organized by the SBT Student Club, led by Taryn Hersch and Matthew Rider with the support of their crew. Four business ideas were presented that evening to be assessed by a mix of four judges from distinct professional backgrounds. The long-awaited evening was Mic controlled and enthusiastic judges-Jason Chavez, Molly Solberg, Brian James and David Anstett, were introduced by Megan Perry-Spears. Our resourceful judges were able to let the participants takeaway a whole bunch of crucial feedback.

Reif Run 2018

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

Yesterday at St. Scholastica was the 40th annual Reif Run 5k. This 5k raises awareness for the MakeitOk campaign which is a project dedicated to reducing stigma surrounding mental illness. All the runners and I met just outside of somer’s main lounge to collect our race bib and shirt. There was also a booth set up with brain stress balls, MakeitOk pins and stickers, and of course snacks and water for the runners. The race went well, and of course the men’s ski team sprinted the whole 3.1 miles… Afterwards it was nice to sit around and talk with my fellow runners and enjoy some snacks and cold water. I must say my favorite part of the event, however, was petting the dog that was there keeping the people at the booth company. I miss my dog so much, so whenever there is a dog on campus, you best bet I will find it and give it a big hug!

Spring Scrimmage Day

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

Yesterday was a long, soccer filled day. The St. Scholastica Women’s soccer team, which I am a member of, had three games. The first game at 10 am was over at Griggs Field at UMD. Unfortunately we started off rough and let in goals early. As the game progressed, however, we gained confidence and finished strong. The second game was at 12:20 pm at Saints Field. We played Lake Superior Community College, and we played very well. At that point, most of us were becoming fatigued, but we pushed through and got the win. The third and final game was against our alumni at Saints Field. That game is always difficult because the alumni go so hard, and we were all so tired from playing two games prior. The best part of the day was after our final game though because pizza and Gatorade was waiting for us on the sideline. Overall the day was perfect weather and filled with fun. Also, I got my first sunburn of the year… So thankful for aloe vera!!
