    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Stonehenge

by / June 2nd, 2017 / Comments Off on Stonehenge

I am having a great time spending the end of my senior year with these two on the London Study Abroad trip. We went to Stonehenge and learned all about the things they DON'T know about it. The theories are many and varying but it is well accepted that this was a magnificent site most likely used for religious purposes. The audio guide was very informative on theories as well as historical excavations. Some of the rocks built here would had to have been carried 40+ miles. I can definitely see why people thought of this as a magical place. It filled me with ideas for future novels. I was surprised we were able to get shots without seeing the numerous tourists in the photos. My only disappointment was we were unable to walk inside the Stonehenge due to its fragile foundation. 

Summer Job Search

by / May 25th, 2017 / Comments Off on Summer Job Search
As a native to Duluth I will be here all summer and the job search is on. Ideally, I want to find something relevant to what I'm pursuing for graduate school, however, realistically that's pretty difficult when I'm looking for a 3-month position. During undergrad, finding internships was extremely easy with the help of the career guidance counselors and work study programs. Now, I don't qualify for many of these internships so competition is much higher. While I am still looking for work relevant to marketing, public relations, and advertising, I have accepted that I may just need to find something that will be fun for me to do. Maybe I will work in one of the tourist shops down town or somewhere fun like Adventure Zone. Duluth has tons of job opportunities, I just need to look a little harder. 

I’m going to Graduate School!

by / May 25th, 2017 / Comments Off on I’m going to Graduate School!
I have been in the McNair Scholars Program for two years now so it's really not a surprise that I am going to Graduate School. However, until this Spring I still wasn't 100% sure where I wanted to go or even what I wanted to study. Applying for graduate school was extremely stressful at first. Following my first draft of my personal statement I couldn't help but feel it was...impersonal. It felt like I was trying to impress someone. It didn't feel like me. I came up with an idea that I thought was pretty interesting: talk about the time I was a Disney princess. With the nod of approval from my advisor Dr. Stephanie Johnson, I re-wrote my personal statement fused with my love for Disney and volunteer work. It worked! I was accepted into every grad school I applied for. I am happy to announce that this Fall I will be attending Western Michigan University pursuing a degree in Communication.
