    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Shawn Otto Visits CSS!

Earlier this morning, Shawn Otto, a science advocate and novelist known for co-founding ScienceDebate.Org joined my Politics of Science in the US class! We have been reading his book, "The War on Science" since the semester began. During our class session, Otto answered questions on the text and shared his opinion on various issues surrounding science and public policy. He will be giving a public lecture later today and have lunch with a few students on campus. His visit is sponsored by the Honors Program and the School of Science.

Student Employee Appreciation Week

by / April 12th, 2018 / No Comments »
This week has been AWESOME!! Here's why: Many students work in various roles on campus, supporting the daily operations that propel the college forward in many ways. This week, the College community celebrated all efforts and endeavors undertaken by these students through a weeklong celebration known by most as Student Appreciation Week. Each year, few student employees are nominated and recognized as part of the Student Appreciation Week. I was selected Student Employee of the Year, thanks to my supervisor's nomination and to the support from colleagues in the Marketing Department and college community. There were endless opportunities for free food, treats, and prizes! There was a raffle draw in the Union yesterday, a pizza party at the Help Desk earlier today, cookies and various treats in the Marketing Department. Many thanks to all the students at CSS who take on various roles to help other students and the rest of the CSS community to thrive! One of my professors decided to buy pizza for the entire class today! There's 6 students in the class, but it felt good having 2 opportunities to eat pizza in one day! My schedule has cleared up a little bit and I have had more time to spend with friends and catch up on some projects! You read all the way to this point and you're awesome!

Free Blood Typing!

Yesterday the Pre-Med Club organized a free event for anyone to come and learn their blood type. And I went! Like getting a driver's license, knowing my blood type has been one of those things I have pushed off, even when I know its very important! The event was held in the Benedictine Commons from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Read the rest of this entry »
