    Courtney's Bio:
    I'm an Elementary Education major at CSS. I also plan to minor in Spanish. Having done PSEO, I came to CSS with more than 60 credits. I'm part of Volunteers Involved Through Action (VITA), Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF), and other clubs! Dance has been part of my life for 10 years, and now I'm trying to fit it into my schedule again. I love spending time watching Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and reading Harry Potter and other great books. I live in a suite with 3 other girls, and we are always finding something fun to do around campus!

Day 1 of CSO!


My students moved in today! We started off the day with greeting students as they checked in. The leaders helped move in their teams, it was definitely a workout. Might I add, I didn’t use a singer elevator or moving cart! We carried stuff out of cars, opened doors, and climbed many flights of stairs, but we got everything in the right rooms. The freshman definitely know how to pack better than I did, I have to give them props there. The students had a few hours to move and unpack all of their things, as well as say good bye to their families. Afterward, we gave them a big welcome to CSO and got right to business. Dinner, of course! We ate in GDR, then introduced the notorious scavenger hunt. Many August Adventures have scavenger hunts, it’s a quick, immersive way to get students used to campus and Duluth. It’s also my favorite part because we won my freshman year! Go Team Orange ’14! ¬†The students had to run all around campus and find things like both sets of peace doors, a professor, a Tower bathtub, etc. After the first hour was up, we transported them to Canal Park. It was starting to get late and a little bit chilly, but we do the scavenger hunt, rain or shine. This time, lightning was also a factor. It started to rain so us leaders found shelter in the DeWitz building, but we didn’t notice it starting to lightning! Other people started to seek shelter in the building and that’s when we noticed how severe the weather was. We canceled the hunt immediately! Thankfully, a lot of the freshman were already hiding out in stores. The drive home was scary, not very visible. It amazed me though how the freshman were still so energetic and in a good mood even though they went through such severe weather their first day!
