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!!!

Last Day of Finals

Thursday, May 10th, 2018

No matter what, today is the last day of finals for everyone at Scholastica!! Today is the last day that anything may also be due as well.  Honestly, thank goodness that this school year is done because it’s been quite difficult.  Also, I have been very excited all year about just finishing school and moving on with this step of life.  I still have graduate school that I need to attend, so it’s not really over for me, but it still is a good feeling to have the majority of school finished.  Scholastica has been such a great second home to me over the past couple of years, and I truly met some of my best friends here.  It will be sad not being able to see them next year, but I know that distance won’t separate our friendship that will hopefully last a lifetime.  Honestly, life is really weird when you think about it.  People come and go, and you never know where it may take you.  I really hope everyone had a wonderful finals week and moved out easily!!

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.

Making the most of Dining Dollars, in 2 days!!

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

The last week of the semester has sprung out from nowhere and suddenly, I find myself in a dilemma. I have about $50 dining dollars left (I know, I couldn’t believe it either!) and these will be void if I don’t spend them by the end of this week (tomorrow maybe?!). Other students are finding themselves in similar or worse positions and I couldn’t help but share my spending stratagem: (more…)

“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.
