    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..

Campus Ministry Winter Retreat

by / February 11th, 2018 / No Comments »
This weekend, I was part of a group of about 15 CSS students participating in a retreat organized by Campus Ministry at the McCabe Renewal Center. The Center is a short drive from CSS and the building has been around for over a century! At the retreat, we explored various ways to build community and improve our prayer lives through meditation, silence, and activities such as nature walks and story telling. This was the second time I have been to McCabe - the first was sometime in my freshman year! Read the rest of this entry »

First Day of Igniting CS in Duluth!!

by / February 7th, 2018 / No Comments »
Today, I officially launched a program I designed a year or so ago to introduce young Duluthians at Lincoln Park Middle School to Computer Science. I co-led the first session with Daniela M., a Computer Info. Systems and Finance major in her second year at CSS. Both Dani and I did not know what to expect and were very glad that the program went well and the kids were excited about the opportunity. We will be volunteering again next week and for three or four more sessions after! If you are a student interested in opportunities that may not be available on campus, there are many ways to get the support of faculty and other members of the college to pursue your goals. I am thankful for the contributions and opportunities that have come with this program and am looking forward to many exciting sessions ahead!

Spring Student Activities Fair

by / February 7th, 2018 / No Comments »
Today various clubs and organizations were nestled in the Student Union sharing information about their activities and conversing with gathering crowds of students interested in joining (or in the snacks available!). I passed the Union twice during the Fair and each time, it was quite a sight as students jostled to visit at least 8 clubs/organizations to in order to be put in a drawing for cool CSS gear and apparel. Some students, including me, were more comfortable and felt at home around the lemonade and cookies... The Activities Fair is a great way for students to learn about ways they can be active on campus and different communities they can join and be part of.
