Grades are in

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

It’s been a week since my last final and final grades are all locked in. Yesterday, I was able to check my final grades in my cor login page. I thought the process would have taken longer but I’m glad we are able to check our final grades so quick. I am satisfied with my final grades. This year was by far the toughest year and I was able to finish strong! Can’t wait till next year! I will make my final year the best years I’ve had at scholastica academically and socially.

Commencement

Friday, May 11th, 2018

Hey y’all! Late night blog post, mostly because I have been so busy and forgot that I should probably get one of my last blogs in!! Tomorrow is commencement and then I’m moving out on Sunday so it will be a busy weekend for me! Commencement occurs at the DECC down in canal and will be at 2pm. It’s first come, first serve for seating, but there is obviously enough seating in the whole place for everyone. It will be an eventful day with picture taking and hanging out with family and friends. Then, like I said, Sunday I am moving out. My family will be coming up again to help me so that will be good. Also, I’m mostly packed, so hopefully everything goes smoothly! Happy Graduation Seniors!!!

Finals Relief

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

There are many things that our school offers during finals to relieve some of the stress.  I have seen tables around the school that are full of snack food items for free for students.  I’ve also seen emails of a Finals Relief Night that took place at a church near Scholastica.  It was from 4pm-4pm, Sunday to Monday, and it was full of free food, massages and music.  I just really love that our school does so many things for the students on a regular basis.  Professors are (for the most part) very accommodating, and other staff is so friendly.  The Scholastica environment is one in its own because people are very kind.  There aren’t many places that I can say that about, but I haven’t really encountered any bad people in my time at Scholastica, and I will forever be grateful for that.  College has taught me so much over the years, and I’m not sure if I have learned the same valuable lessons that I have learned at CSS.

“I open at the close”

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

You know it has been a rough week when I start thinking about good ole Harry Potter and his experience with the Resurrection Stone. For some reason, Dumbledore’s hint “I open at the close” came to my mind as I was thinking how tomorrow marks the close of yet another year of academic rigor and challenges, and the start (eh, open?) of something new.

Finals Week

Tuesday, May 8th, 2018

Well folks, Finals Week is finally here!! As the weekend was passing through, I wasn’t really looking forward to finals and having to take all my exams, but I’m sitting here blogging and only have one more test to go!! All of my other classes are finished, and my last exam is on Thursday at 2pm.  I have quite some time before I need to start worrying about this test, especially because it is a standardized exams.  Most standardized exams get curved because the material can be very difficult.  I’m going to study, but I’m not going to get really worried about this test.  It’s in a class that I have done well in all semester, and I’m looking forward to see what this test looks like.  Other than that, I’ve already had two exams and a short paper to turn in.  It feels pretty good to be so close to finishing up my undergraduate.  So good that it still doesn’t feel real.  I hope that everyone else is managing their finals week well and gets through it! Good luck!!!
