    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 3 of CSO!


By day 3 of CSO, everyone has been bonding pretty well. We once again had a great group as Team Purple this year. We started off our day at the the Rose Garden, where we just finished dinner last night. The Rose Garden is hands down one of the most beautiful man-made parts of the city. It is home to many a kind of roses, as well as other flowers. It also is adjacent to the lakewalk and has a beautiful white gazebo. Perfect for weddings? Of course! Sometimes you walk by the garden and someone is getting married or having their senior pictures taken. Team Purple split into different groups for different projects with Parks & Rec. Ever since the July 21st storm, Parks & Rec has been running around, dedicating most of its people to cleaning up storm damage (trees, trees, and more trees). The lady who was our volunteer contact had been working by herself in the garden for the past 6 weeks! So we took on her composting, pruning, and so much more.


Personally, I pruned too many rose bushes to count. After all of that, we ate lunch and headed over to Duluth Children’s Museum. We helped the museum transport many artifacts from a storage unit to another larger facility. I can now say that I have carried old daggers in a filing cabinet drawer! We topped the night off with some star gazing and night hikes.
