Weekend Plans

Friday, April 20th, 2018

I’m pretty sure the only way I usually make it through the week is to plan for my weekends, AKA I live for weekends in college.  For example, this weekend is Alumni Volleyball weekend, so there will be tons of families and old CSS Alumni that will come and play against the CSS Volleyball team.  My sister and her roommate were both CSS Volleyball Alum and will be staying at my house this weekend.  I’m really looking forward to hanging out with them as well as some of the old alumni that I haven’t seen in what seems like ages.  Other than that, I know that Sunday is Earth day and predicted to be around 60 degrees outside, so you betcha bottom dollar I will be spending at least a little bit of my day outside.  Even though it doesn’t seem all that exciting, weekends are usually stress-free and super duper fun because of that.  I hope everyone enjoys the beautiful weather we are expected to have this weekend!!!

UMD Spring Jam

Friday, April 13th, 2018

Tomorrow is UMD’s annual Spring Jam!! For those of you who don’t know what that is, every spring UMD hires some singer to come and perform for students at CSS, UMD and LSC. Scholastica buys tickets from UMD and sells them to students. This year, Ty Dolla $ign will be at UMD and it only costs $10 to go!!! I have a ton of friends that will be going to this concert, and it’s a really good deal considering he is a well-known rapper. Personally, I don’t really listen to rap music so I will not be attending, but I’m excited for my friends who really love it. I’m also pretty sure that the concert is outdoors, so we will have to see how the weather will be and see if people will go or not!!

Employee Appreciation Week

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

This week is Employee Appreciation Week at Scholastica! All employees got a little sheet of paper in their mailbox with a variety of deals to places at Scholastica, like the Saints Shop or Storms and other things like that.  Also, today there is a Game of Life going on in the Student Union where students can enter to win prizes and have some free popcorn.  I’m pretty sure there were also a few employees that were honored for a variety of reasons, which is also pretty cool. Either way, I love that Scholastica does a variety of things to appreciate their involved students.  I always tell people to take advantage of all the free giveaways because it comes out of students’ tuition anyways!!

Working at Scholastica

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

I am one of the lucky students to be able to work on campus at St. Scholastica. I actually have four jobs on campus, some requiring more time than others. The first job I got on campus was last fall when I became a game management person. For that job, I do tasks that involve for the smooth operations of a sports game. My second job was becoming a writer for our campus newspaper The Cable. Although I do not make much, it is so fun to go out and listen to what people have to say and write about it! My third job is housekeeping. For that, I clean the Benedictine commons and surrounding areas three times a week. This is hard work, but it pays for my car payments. My fourth and final current job is writing this blog post. Out of all these, I think writing blogs is my favorite because I can write about what I want, when I want. Definitely apply early and to many jobs because working on campus is amazing!

Internships. Where do I start?

Tuesday, March 27th, 2018

Spring is in the air, and so are lingering thoughts about summer! While some students prefer relaxing and vacationing over summer, some choose to do internships, research, study abroad etc. I will mostly focus on internships in this post!
