Summer Jobs already?!

Wednesday, November 14th, 2018

Today in the Student Union there were 5 or 6 tables set up for students to explore jobs for the upcoming summer of 2019. I, myself questioned that it was not yet 2019 but went to look at the tables regardless. As an elementary education major, I try to get as much exposure to kids that I can put on my resumé in the future.

Drive up the North Shore

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

palisade head
This weekend, during our mid-semester break, I travelled up the north shore for the first time and made a stop at Palisade Head near Beaver Bay, Minnesota. The drive was just over an hour from Duluth. Along the way were a lot of small towns that had a very “up north” feeling to them. Almost all of them had their own little gift shops, bakeries, and candy shops, along with restaurants and cabins available to rent out. The drive alongside Lake Superior was very beautiful and scenic. You really get a good glimpse of just how big Lake Superior is when you are driving beside it for hours. We drove past Split Rock Lighthouse, which I have always seen pictures of but have never seen in person, and then shortly after that, we stopped at Palisade Head and went for a little hike to the edge of the cliffs where we could get a good view of the water. It was a very enjoyable trip and since Duluth is just a short drive away, it makes this drive a great option for spending a Saturday or Sunday when you are in need of a break from school or work. I will definitely be making this trip again soon and I highly recommend others to look into it, as well.

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.

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.
