Head of the Lakes Job Fair

Monday, March 9th, 2020

Hi everyone!

I would like to tell you about my experience going to the Head Lakes Job Fair with the College of Saint-Scholastica.  Job fairs are important even for freshmen because that is the place to start networking and get contacts. It can help you find an internship in your field of study which the experience out of it, will help you decide if  you like it and if you are in the right major for you. For this job fair, the school provided transportation, as they do most of the time. The fair took place at UWS, another college. All the major employers in Duluth and the Twin Ports area were present. A wide variety of discipline were represented such as finance, healthcare, law enforcement and sciences. The College always advertises when job fairs are happening and provides transportation for it. Some job fairs even occurs at the College so you don’t even need to leave campus. All the job fairs also have a photograph that takes free professional head shots. Those are useful for LinkedIn and Handshake profiles! Those are great opportunities for incoming students!

Roller Skating!

Friday, March 6th, 2020

I am a residential advisor at the college of Saint-Scholastica. The honors program and residential life partnered to make an event for our floor. The other residential advisor and I told residents that we were going to take them to World of Wheels. It’s a roller skating club. It was really fun. It does not matter what your level of roller skating. Some were beginners and some were advanced. Me, I was a beginner and in 1 hour, I knew how to skate decently. The roller skating place had good music playing and at one point, the owners brought a limbo stick and made people do the limbo in skates! There were a lot of students from the CSS community as well. Also there are drinks and food available. I liked that event because I found a new place where the CSS community could hang out and that is fun to spend time at. If you are an incoming freshmen, ask your Ras to make fun events like these and they will do it!

Inauguration

Wednesday, February 12th, 2020

This Monday, our school inaugurated our new president. Her name is Barbara McDonald. She is a very nice person and very dedicated towards students. I have talked to her several times and she really cares for students. She has an open door policy for everyone.  She took office in August but was only inaugurated monday. It was a beautiful ceremony that was livedstreamed. A lot of prevalent figures of the school spoke and told us about the many qualities of our new president. The President when she spoke, told us about the programs that were added to the school. She took several successful alumnis in example and showed us what Saints accomplished in the world. I encourage you to learn more about her. She is a great example of leadership for our school.

Graduation!

Sunday, December 15th, 2019

Yesterday I graduated! The ceremony took a little over an hour, and it involved a couple of speeches, a few musical performances and of course, the main event itself: the giving of the diplomas and switching the tassel from the right to the left. For a little bit over a week, I’ve been entrenched in the belief that I won’t really be graduated until finals are over (because really, who actually graduates before finishing finals), but there was something about the incontrovertible symbolism of that gesture that was too much to ignore, and it got to me. I guess this is it; next Thursday I will officially finish my studies at The College of St. Scholastica!

Housing Cancellation Form

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

Upon graduating, everyone is required to fill out a housing cancellation form–at least those graduating in December. Housing contracts usually run for an academic year, so unless you’re graduating on time (in which case I don’t know what happens, maybe you become abducted by aliens), you have to notify ResLife that you’re leaving early. It is a formality, but one that can save you from having to pay late-checkout fees! So now you know: you’re making a quasi-adult contract with ResLife–don’t break it!
