    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Happy 100th!

This year marks the one hundredth anniversary of Saint Scholastica’s existence and wonderful influence on its students’ lives and careers.  The progress and changes that the school has gone through over this 100 years of time is truthfully rather phenomenal.  The College of Saint Scholastica was officially proclaimed a college institution in 1912, and believe it or not, only had 6 students enrolled at its start!  The school has always been grounded in Catholic values, centered in Christ, the sacraments, and living peacefully and respectably with those surrounding you.  This makes up the college’s central value system still in existence today on campus, known as Cor et Anima.  When it started out, the college was purely a school for women and was taught by nuns from the monastery primarily.  As you can see, the college is immensely different today than it was when it first began!  Currently the college is host to around 4,000 students and has over 150 faculty members who work full time on campus.  And yes, of course, there are men pursuing their degrees at the college as well (roughly 1/3 of the college population, in fact). 

While the college has been celebrating their 100 year anniversary at multiple times during the year thus far, because this week is homecoming, today will be used as a special day to further commemorate 100 years of excellence.  At 4:45, there will be the ribbon cutting to the Science Auditorium (for it’s grand opening of the addition) and delicious birthday cake and sweets provided by the college to celebrate the occasion.  I invite you to attend this momentous event (especially if you are brand new to the college) and take advantage of learning about the school’s heritage and tradition.  In addition, there will be tours given of the new addition to the Science Building and facilities (in case you need a little help with finding your way around!).  Enjoy and celebrate!
