Spring Scrimmage Day

by / April 22nd, 2018 / No Comments »
Yesterday was a long, soccer filled day. The St. Scholastica Women's soccer team, which I am a member of, had three games. The first game at 10 am was over at Griggs Field at UMD. Unfortunately we started off rough and let in goals early. As the game progressed, however, we gained confidence and finished strong. The second game was at 12:20 pm at Saints Field. We played Lake Superior Community College, and we played very well. At that point, most of us were becoming fatigued, but we pushed through and got the win. The third and final game was against our alumni at Saints Field. That game is always difficult because the alumni go so hard, and we were all so tired from playing two games prior. The best part of the day was after our final game though because pizza and Gatorade was waiting for us on the sideline. Overall the day was perfect weather and filled with fun. Also, I got my first sunburn of the year... So thankful for aloe vera!!

Library Study Time

by / April 20th, 2018 / No Comments »
Today I found myself in the St. Scholastica library taking a practice exam for my upcoming National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE). The library is a great spot for getting work done. The 2nd and 3rd floors are reserved for "quiet study", and the first floor is often times used for larger group projects where some discussion goes on. Read the rest of this entry »

Weekend Plans

by / April 20th, 2018 / No Comments »
I'm pretty sure the only way I usually make it through the week is to plan for my weekends, AKA I live for weekends in college.  For example, this weekend is Alumni Volleyball weekend, so there will be tons of families and old CSS Alumni that will come and play against the CSS Volleyball team.  My sister and her roommate were both CSS Volleyball Alum and will be staying at my house this weekend.  I'm really looking forward to hanging out with them as well as some of the old alumni that I haven't seen in what seems like ages.  Other than that, I know that Sunday is Earth day and predicted to be around 60 degrees outside, so you betcha bottom dollar I will be spending at least a little bit of my day outside.  Even though it doesn't seem all that exciting, weekends are usually stress-free and super duper fun because of that.  I hope everyone enjoys the beautiful weather we are expected to have this weekend!!!

SBT Career Summit

by / April 19th, 2018 / No Comments »
The School of Business and Technology held its first Career Summit today. This event was organized by MBA student Zhara Davies, along in hand with Career Services and other CSS students. I got to attend the 2nd session which included the following talks: " Networking 101 - How to Build Personal Relationships" and "Digital Branding- Your Digital Personal". Both Amsoil's Rob Stenberg and Aimclear's Manny Rivas delivered very interesting presentations. Through the first one I had the opportunity to learn more about how to establish a conversation in which I get to connect with whom I am speaking to by asking them more about themselves. The second talk revolved around the different platforms one can use to keep up to date with the different industries, as well as emphasized on the impact our social media accounts can have when being considered for future job opportunities.

Winter No More

Spring? Is that you? Today in Duluth, MN, we actually got a taste of spring! In fact, it got above 50 degrees, so that means it is basically summer here. It was a nice day to walk from class to class in a t-shirt and soak up some sun. This warm weather has me and everyone else feeling hopeful that winter is coming to an end. I certainly hope so! Here in the dorms, everyone walks around looking like ghosts because it has been winter for so long, but not any more. The sun is out and summer is coming! Baseball and softball actually got to play games today after having many of their games postponed, so I am sure they are feeling good. A friend of mine informed me that as of today, 19 days until I get to go home for the summer and enjoy the stress free life. The countdown is on.
