College Essentials

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

I am pretty sure you were expecting a list of packing items for college. However, this is far from it. I have learned that napping is essential in college. It is great to help you focus and recharge. This picture is me napping in my friend’s dorm.

The Cable

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

For those of you that attend CSS, I’m sure many of you have heard of The Cable. It’s our school’s newspaper article and I’m pretty sure a new one comes out every week!! They are usually placed everywhere throughout the school so one can access them easily. Personally, I like reading The Cable when I’m in Storms eating my lunch usually. The articles are written by students and some of them are quite comical sometimes too!! I have gotten emails from students who write for the newspaper asking me about CHOICES events or volleyball and things like that. It’s sort of fun to get your name in the news, even if not a lot of students tend to read it. I suggest to all students to at least give it a good look through and you may get a good laugh from it!

Super Bowl Weekend

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

This weekend is finally the Super Bowl IN MINNEAPOLIS!!!! I think it’s amazing that it has finally come here, and also very convenient that we have a super nice new stadium to play in.  The US Bank looks so beautiful even thought I haven’t been there yet.  I have heard rumors that the Super Bowl will bring in millions of dollars to Minnesota, so that’s honestly super exciting, even though I have no idea where the money will go.  I’m hoping that many restaurants make tons of money, as well as airlines and hotels.  If I were to go to the Super Bowl, I would probably make it longer than just a day trip to that location.  Prices are going to rise in the cities and I can only imagine how busy it’s going to be to have to drive around there.  Also, another major concern is the human trafficking that will take place during this weekend so I really hope that anyone that is traveling down there is sad and always with a buddy.  Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Friday!!

Residential Advisor

Wednesday, January 31st, 2018

Friday is the last to apply for the residential Advisor job.  A few days ago, I decided to apply for the RA job because I have had a great experience with all my RAs throughout my years at CSS and I want to be just like that so I can give my residents a great experience. The RA position is competitive. There are a few openings for many applications. The Application requires students to have two letter of references, a video describing what community means, a cover letter and a resume. In addition, a few events to attend and to collaborate with other RAs and applicants. It is exciting to apply for this job! All the RAs seem to have a great relationship with each other and with all their residents. They are all driven and committed to their jobs which is so cool! Can’t wait to go to the RA event and bond with everyone.

FIFA Tournament in Cedar!

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

This past weekend the RAs hosted a FIFA tournament in Cedar Hall! Living in Cedar, my roommate and I jumped on the bandwagon and decided to have our own in-house tournament – I almost got late for Mass that day! Both of us are not big console game players and this was our first time actually playing FIFA against each other. We took the opportunity to practice for the tournament itself but decided last minute to focus on homework instead.
