    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!

Incoming Hometowners!

When I came to CSS my freshman year, there was maybe 10 of us from my hometown coming here. For me as a high schooler, I thought this was the end of the world. “Ugh, all these people I already know and I just want to start over completely, no fair!” I had a class of 400, but for some people that go to CSS, their graduating class might’ve been 20-80 people. So a “large group” like that can seem troublesome. By month two, besides the then-best friend having the same Delta and Dignitas group with and lived above, I hadn’t seen anyone more than once. It was so strange because as much as CSS was new and huge, it does generally have a small student body. I’ve come to realize that after your general classes, you pretty much tend to see the same people constantly that are on the same schedule as you and not the others (same major, same extracurriculars, same work study, etc.), because that’s how life works if you can believe it! For me, my CIHS classmates were Science majors so I didn’t seem them. Not that they were all terrible, but getting to start fresh always feels awesome. It can also be exciting to pass on the CSS torch to people from home that are younger. There are a few girls I knew that are now going to be freshman here in the fall and I’m really excited to be a mentor (or even carpool ride) to them. Some of them will be doing Community Service Orientation in the fall which I’m SO excited for. I might even be their leader! They will be moving on campus early, doing community service work across Duluth and even on campus for a week. CSO had a huge impact on me so I highly suggested it to them all.
