    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

I’m going to Graduate School!

I have been in the McNair Scholars Program for two years now so it’s really not a surprise that I am going to Graduate School. However, until this Spring I still wasn’t 100% sure where I wanted to go or even what I wanted to study. Applying for graduate school was extremely stressful at first. Following my first draft of my personal statement I couldn’t help but feel it was…impersonal. It felt like I was trying to impress someone. It didn’t feel like me. I came up with an idea that I thought was pretty interesting: talk about the time I was a Disney princess. With the nod of approval from my advisor Dr. Stephanie Johnson, I re-wrote my personal statement fused with my love for Disney and volunteer work. It worked! I was accepted into every grad school I applied for. I am happy to announce that this Fall I will be attending Western Michigan University pursuing a degree in Communication.
