    Brandon's Bio:
    My major is on the left, but it’s taken me six major changes, two minor changes and three graduate-track changes to get there. I’m from a small farming town west of the Twin Cities and came to Duluth for the city and stayed for the school. I work at the Burns Wellness Center at the front desk and have pretty much the best job in the world. I like to take any opportunity thrown at me, and since coming here I’ve been thrown plenty. Life’s an adventure, and so is CSS!

En route to Enger Tower.

So the start of this week marked the final month of my residence in Duluth for the next 6 months. This city never ceases to amaze me. On my very first day as a Saint Scholastica student, Larry Goodwin, the institution’s President, told us to take time to stop and soak in our surroundings. I can tell you right now, that I didn’t take that advice, because I relish this city all the time. Whether it’s looking down 4th street and admiring Enger Tower in the distance, or taking a second to appreciate all the unique architecture in the city. Today I was particularly ambitious and ran all the way up to Enger Tower, which serves as a sort of divider between West Duluth and the rest of the city. It was actually donated by a Norwegian Prince and Princess in 1939, and has served as one of the most astounding views in Duluth ever since. From it you can see the waves crashing in on Park Point, the sailboats and cargo ships in the bay, the shores of Minnesota and Wisconsin, and all the way to the point that you can no longer see where on a humid day you can’t tell where the lake ends and sky begins. You can see the massive red radio towers that almost look like a crown sitting atop the old city. You can see the runs on Spirit mountain and the Aerial Lift bridge that serves as an emblem for our unique city. You can see the bustling city on one side, and the green outdoors on the other. And the longer and more you look, the greater your sense of belonging becomes. It’s things like that that will make me feel proud of the city I call ‘home.’
