Meeting Prospective Students

by / July 19th, 2017 / No Comments »
Today I had the honor to meet some students that will be attending our college this fall. My high school held an event to the Minnesota United soccer game and lots of students from my high school attended. We have 13 incoming students from Cristo Rey and to see a lot of them today was a great feeling.

I just applied to an internship with Senator Al Franken in the Duluth office. If I get this internship it will allow me to complete my senior social work placement. It will also allow me to get experience that will help me with my future career. Career services at our school helps with resumes and cover letters which I needed to apply.

CHOICES 2017

This year, I will still be a part of the CHOICES Grant up at St. Scholastica.  As a part of the grant, it is my job to represent the student-athletes of St. Scholastica and promote athletics as well as choosing to be sober.  We also decided to tie in teamwork and leadership in teams as a part of our grant.  There will be another student employee working with me this next year, and it will probably go smoother this year than last.  We are preparing for the year and the events that we will do already, and I'm very excited about all the things we will get to do!!  I have to go up to Duluth at the beginning of August to retrain for my job, and then I will have more information about what the year will be like for us!

Split Rock Lighthouse

Another location on my list of places to see before I left Duluth was the Split Rock Lighthouse, which is also in Two Harbors. They aren't open in the winters, but it is sure nice to enjoy when the weather is nice, and you can go any time between 10:00am-6:00pm and I think the tours are every half hour. You can go inside, explore the gift shop, they play videos, and have a little museum to check out! Read the rest of this entry »

Youth Theology Institute

I spent the last ten days as a counselor for the 2017 CSS Yeti Camp organized by the Theology department. I met so many students with inspiring stories. We worked together to find our calling and our vocation. we learned about our strengths, weaknesses, set goals, faced our fears, and much much more. Each day was well organized. There was always something to do from morning to night. Every laugh, conversation, smile, interaction grew us closer to each other and to God. I will miss all the students I have met. It was an amazing opportunity and a life changing experience.
