    Halle's Bio:
    Hello, my name is Halle Nystrom and I'm a grad student at the College of St. Scholastica (I also did my undergrad here). I chose Duluth because it's the perfect amount of distance from home, which is about a 4.5 hour drive for me. I think Duluth is an easy place to adapt to and to fall in love with at the same time. Please feel free to comment on my posts and ask any questions!

This summer I am really missing the on campus fitness classes that CSS offers! I love being able to drive to campus for free classes including yoga, cardio, sculpting, and even cycling! The fitness center is my favorite place to relax and destress!

If you live in Duluth or are considering here as your future college home, you should know that the weather can be very inconsistent especially in the early summer! Here is a snap shot from last night. Yesterday it was 80 all day and today it is mid 50s! Photo by Halle Nystrom

Summer School

by / May 22nd, 2017 / Comments Off on Summer School

Many students take summer school! Summer school is a great way to catch up on classes if you have made a recent major change. This is also normal for graduate school. Possibly even a good option for you if you want to graduate early! I am taking 1 class this summer and it starts very soon! This summer I will talk all about how to balance summer fun with studies, and even a part time job! Stay tuned in!

Valuable lessons

In my graduate course right now we are learning about leadership, and more specifically what qualities create a great leader. My education is training me to be a better person, and a better leader, how amazing is that? By learning about personality traits, examples, and researching leadership qualities, we are learning more about ourselves as leaders. It's important to be honest with yourself while filling out personality finders, strength and weakness finders, and other assessments because they can reveal so much about yourself that may help you better understand what type of a leader you are. I'm so thankful for this graduate course because I have learned about being a better leader and being honest with myself about where I am and where I want to be in the future! Who are you as a leader? Do people look up to you and trust you? Do your choices reflect the person you want to be?

Physical Health Matters

Along with mental health, which deserves a separate post, physical health is so important during your college years. I struggled during undergraduate college staying physically healthy. Although I was an athlete I found myself constantly sick and feeling sluggish. I would go in phases of eating healthy, eating crappy, and not eating enough. The past year I have learned how to balance my meals correctly and how to workout for my body. I have never felt better! Learning how to provide my body nutrients is something that I wish I would have knew about during undergraduate. I wish I would have been more conscious of what I was putting into my body and how I was treating myself. Please take a moment to research healthy eating and exercises and consider making a lifestyle change if you are feeling unhealthy, sluggish, or unlike yourself!
