This week has been championship week for all intramural sports on campus. Both volleyball leagues and basketball have champions. Tonight the soccer and tennis champions will be crowned.

Housing Cancellation Form

by / December 12th, 2019 / No Comments »

Upon graduating, everyone is required to fill out a housing cancellation form--at least those graduating in December. Housing contracts usually run for an academic year, so unless you're graduating on time (in which case I don't know what happens, maybe you become abducted by aliens), you have to notify ResLife that you're leaving early.

It was quite charming to see faculty and staff having a great time with their families. This is what Christmas is about!

Hockey rinks around Duluth are starting to open up to the public! With the colder temperatures upon us, the conditions are perfect for forming good ice. Duluth Heights rink, a popular rink with St. Scholastica students due to its close proximity, was the first to open in Duluth this year.

Independent Study Meeting

Yesterday I met with the professor who is supervising my independent study. Last week I turned in a draft for my paper, and yesterday she gave me an overview of the edits she made as well as some advice for future directions. In general, most edits were concerned with formatting, but we also discussed the content of the essay and its implications to society. It was fun to talk about the future directions of psychology with my professor!
