Necessities Nook

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

Wondering through the hallways of Tower Hall, I came across a little set up today. On the third floor of the Tower Hall, toward the right-end-side when ascending up is a showcase-cavity. I assume, some students or faculty or staff got together and came up this idea. In this space, placed are some basic and essential school supplies like loose sheets of paper, pencils, erasers, paper clips and more. A cardboard hoarding grabs the passer-by’s attention.

Field Experience Pt. 2

Wednesday, October 17th, 2018

Almost every semester (if not every semester) of the elementary education program is packed with a field experience where one goes into the classroom to put the ideas one learns in the classroom into everyday life. This year I am at Stella Maris Academy with a 2nd grade classroom. I always hope to be put into the upper grades (i.e 4th, 5th or 6th grade) but it is good to get experience in all levels.

The First 3 Weeks

Friday, September 21st, 2018

As a sophomore, I have been around the block once but after the second week, it feels as though all the papers are due and exams are all on the same day. Between the increasing pile of homework, there is little to no time to make new friends and if you play a collegiate sport, game over. However, there are ways to structure your time to fit in all the new and exciting things you would like to.

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!

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
