S-STEM Scholarship Program

Monday, May 28th, 2018

There is a great opportunity for St. Scholastica students who are thinking about pursuing a STEM major. St. Scholastica offers a scholarship program called the S-STEM Scholarship that gives CSS students an additional $6,500 per year. It is more than just a scholarship, however. If you apply for and receive this scholarship, you will have access to a ton of different resources to help build your resume and help prepare you for life after college working in the STEM field. Some of the opportunities you will have access to include job fairs, seminars, workshops, employer visits, research, grad school visits, and career counseling. I have been a part of this program for the past year and it has been a great experience. I will be continuing with the program until I graduate! Typically, the program only accepts second year students and up, but this past year, they accepted freshmen students for the first time so I think it is definitely something to look into. The majors that qualify for the program are Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Computer Information Systems/Computer Science and Mathematics (except for clinical fields such as pre-med). If you are interested in more information about this scholarship, here is the link on the CSS website: http://www.css.edu/academics/s-stem-scholarship-program.html

Field Experiences on Tuesdays

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

As a first semester in the Elementary Education you are required to do a field experience. The one I have on Tuesdays is in Proctor, Minnesota and needs a car to get to but is definitely worth the travel.

My typical Thursday

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

Thursdays are by far my favorite day of the school week. This is because it is the only day of the week I do not have an 8am class. However I do have a field experience starting at 9 am so I still have to get up. I have to complete 20 hours of field experience as a part of my Introduction to Education course.

Missed an Assignment?

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Have you missed an assignment or are you about to due to sickness or an emergency? Sometimes you wonder how you should go about telling your professor. I’m here to help! I’ve been through this a lot because I have a chronic condition, and freshmen year I had the classic freshmen illnesses that may get you too! Coming to a new school means you are exposed to lots of new people, new germs, new bacteria, and new stresses on the body! It’s common to catch a simple cold your first year at school. Although a common cold will not keep you from class sometimes more serious illness like Mono or the Flu can keep you from making it to class. The first thing you should do is email or call your professor as soon as possible! It’s beneficial to get a note from the nurse as well. Professors are usually understanding if you let them know ahead of time and send them a professional and sincere email detailing what’s going on. Never be afraid to contact the professors, at CSS the professors truly are there to help you succeed. My next advice would be to do what you can, when you can, and submit your missed work as soon as possible when you are able! Drink lots of water, get proper sleep, and make sure to be washing your hands, bedding, and dorm surfaces often! 

A Day in Canal

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

​After being downtown to work on the mural, I decided today was too nice to not go to Canal. So I did! All by myself. It was nice to be near the water. I found myself liking being alone because I could walk at my own pace, make my own plans… It was awesome. So I walked the Canal Park strip of the Lakewalk then settled into Caribou for an evening of homework. Canal Caribou was a nice surprise too, given that they’ve redesigned the seating areas since I’ve been here last.
