    Conrado's Bio:
    Born and raised in urban Madrid, lived in rural northern California and ended up in snowy suburban Minnesota. During the school year you'll find me firmly entrenched in a routine designed to develop my Psychology research skills, and during the summer you will probably not find me at all; in my free time, I enjoy going on trekking trips in the backcountry, adventuring through recondite countries and most importantly spending time with my family.

Student Panel & Prospective Freshmen

Today, a group of prospective students visited the school to get a better idea of what life at CSS is like. The experience was supposed to be enriched by the presence of a small group of students (myself among them) who sat with them to share our perspectives as CSS students. I was disappointed at how lacking the questions were and cliché the unprompted responses, so here is a Q&A monologue of the questions I would’ve liked answered as a prospective student:

Q: What is St. Scholastica’s biggest strength?

A: The emphasis and effort faculty place on creating a supporting community. As a psychology student, I’ve received outstanding, personalized support from all my professors in every academic project I’ve undertaken. Get interested in your classes and start new projects!

Q: What is St. Scholastica’s biggest weakness?

A: The party life. I’m not particularly interested in it, so this is mostly based off second hand information, but it seems small schools don’t compare to their larger counterparts in this regard.

Q: Should I attend CSS?

A: If you’re interested in attending a small liberal arts school in Minnesota (particularly if you intend to pursue a nursing degree), I’d say CSS is a good choice. I am very satisfied with how invested professors here are in seeing students succeed, and I understand the nursing program is regionally competitive! Incidentally, they also give great financial packages 🙂

Q: What advice would you give incoming freshmen?

A: Here is some unconventional advice: maturation takes time, but being irresponsible for a short period of time in a controlled way and experiencing how vacuous it is will speed up the process!
