Easter Break

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

Seriously guys, our school is so wonderful.  Unlike most public schools, we get to have an Easter Break!! Although it feels like we just had our Spring Break, we will be on Easter Break starting on Thursday (we even have Monday off!!).  I can’t imagine going to UMD, because they don’t even get Good Friday or Monday off from school.  This Easter Break, I don’t really have any plans but hanging out with my family.  I will be pretty busy I’m assuming (per usual), but only with extra curricular sorts of activities.  It’s nice to have even half of a week off to celebrate Easter, and my family usually has some sort of celebration together.  I’m not sure what our plan is for this year, but I have heard of many families going on vacation during this time, and that sounds awesome!! All in all, just another reason that Scholastica is pretty awesome.

My Weeknight

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Everyone on campus spends their weeknights differently. Some lock themselves away in their room. Some go to the mall. Some go out on the town. And some, go spend time in other people’s room.

The NEW Dorms

Sunday, March 18th, 2018

For many CSS first-years this year, including myself, we had no idea what the renovated dorms actually looked like. The new dorm have great amenities such as a larger sink area, a space for a mini fridge as well as brighter walls and floors and much more floor space. Although, there isn’t a ton of storage space with fairly small closets and only one shelf. A tip to the first years in the renovated dorms is to bring some form of storage, I use stack-able boxes from Menards with colorful cloth boxes to fit everything inside. Another way to make your room feel bigger and have more storage space, is to loft both beds. It definitely helps create more storage space. The downside to lofting is changing sheets. This is definitely not something I thought about but changing your sheets close to the ceiling is not much fun and kind of a hassle.
