    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Choosing A Major

by / January 24th, 2018 / No Comments »
The all too common question that friends and family members ask when you are in the midst of the application process/college search or even after choosing a college, "What are you planning on studying?". It is a difficult question to answer as a high school student. Some things that I took into account were: What am I interested in? What brings value to my life? Where can this career path take me? What opportunities revolve around this specific major? Will it help to provide a financially sound career? Will this major set me up with appropriate pre-requisites for a graduate program?

Student Employment

by / January 23rd, 2018 / No Comments »
One of the great things about the College of St. Scholastica is the opportunities for student employment on campus. As I look back over the past 6.5 years of time I spent through undergrad and grad school, I've held six student employment jobs. These jobs were essential in providing me with the ability to pay for books, food, gas, rent, etc. The jobs I held include student blogger, teaching assistant, statistics tutor, game management personnel, team laundry, and assistant baseball coach. Other opportunities for students include storm's/green view dining room workers, library assistants, Help Desk staff, BWC staff, intramural referee, grounds/maintenance, admissions representative, tour guides, etc. The possibilities are endless and you need only do a bit of searching and ask. Every college student enjoys a bit of extra cash flow coming in and there is really nothing quite as convenient as on-campus employment. Not to mention the hours are pretty good and the department/employer is always understanding of student obligations. Another perk is being able to put these jobs on your resume. Be sure to look into what you can do to earn money during your time as a student at St. Scholastica.

Loans and Financial Aid

It is no secret that education is expensive. The majority of students graduate with some amount of loan debt. However, the College of St. Scholastica offers a surplus of scholarship opportunities and grants to assist students with the cost of college. Financial Aid is also a part of student services provided OneStop. The individuals in this department are fantastic at answering questions and providing resources to all of your financial questions.

Importance of Internships

by / January 17th, 2018 / Comments Off on Importance of Internships
Throughout the three years of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program there are four clinical internships. The first rotation follows the completion of spring semester of the first year. It is an 8 week long internship during summer term I. The final three internships are considered "terminal internships". The duration of these internships span from 8-10 weeks, or occasionally 12. These follow the completion of didactic work for the program and provide the opportunity for us to apply all the knowledge and skills we learned over the past two years in the classroom. Often times students will begin to think about what setting they enjoy working in and where they would like to start their careers. Performance during these last three internships is crucial because these sites will often times consider student interns for upcoming job openings. Read the rest of this entry »

Class Sizes

by / January 16th, 2018 / Comments Off on Class Sizes
I wanted to take a moment to discuss the topic of class sizes at the College of St. Scholastica. During my time in undergrad the majority of my class sizes were between 15 and 20. This amount of students made it easy to connect with classmates, approach the professor, and feel comfortable. My larger lecture classes such as chemistry and biology were around 80 students with smaller groups of 20 for the lab portion of class. Although the lectures are fairly large, the smaller lab sections make the class and professor/student relationship feel more personal. As I got into my major (Exercise Physiology) the class size was approximately 40 students with lab sizes of 10-15. Due to having class with these students every day my junior and senior year, we all became quite familiar with one another making for a very comfortable learning environment. Once I got into graduate school (Physical Therapy) the class size turned to 36 (it is now 48). Once again, seeing these classmates every day, working with them in labs/clinic, and group projects made our class more like a family. Read the rest of this entry »
