    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!

Friday night my roommates (and future roommate) and I went to Pizza Luce to have some bonding time. After we ordered our pizza, one of my current roommates dropped the bomb on us that she is transferring schools. We were definitely confused at first and thought she had an internship. As she kept talking, we realized she was leaving in the fall. My other poor roommate started crying at our table and I was (and am) definitely in shock. She really loves Scholastica, but as an international student she got accepted into a top international marketing program and really couldn’t turn down her dream (that go-getter gah). CSS has really prepared her to get into the program, so she feels even more confident that she’s ready for it. We are super sad that she is leaving, however she’ll only be a few hours away still. We already talked out next year, going on spring break together, etc. She’ll be here this summer too, but a lot of our friends won’t be. So… I’m working on a giant group of cards signed for her and a little present from her closest friends. This is definitely not one of the things I expected for next year, but live is never predictable.
