    Diamond's Bio:
    Hey ya'll. My name's Diamond Hollins. I'm a transfer student from Minneapolis. Two things I love talking about are football and video games. My favorite teams are the Carolina Panthers and the Minnesota Vikings. I've been a Nintendo kid all my life, although PlayStation has great titles, too. The blogs I'll be writing about will reflect my feelings towards activities and places at St. Scholastica. Hopefully I'll not only allow you to get to know St. Scholastica, but to get to know me as well!

Books for classes

Okay I wanna discuss buying books. The first thing I should let you all know is that the schools not giving you the books on the first day. Like they would in high school, nope, you’re gonna have to buy them yourself. Some of these books can get really expensive for what class you eventually need them for, but here’s the thing. You might not even need the book for the class. The reasons may vary on this, sometimes it’s because the professor will go through everything in the chapter in class the next day, sometimes you’ll only need it for just one in-class project, sometimes you’ll need need it only once a month, and sometimes you won’t use it at all. Now you may be wondering, how do I prevent wasting money on books I don’t need? Just order them the day you get your syllabus. The syllabus has everything that you will do that semester on it. That will tell you if you need your book or not. I usually make judgement calls on whether i need the book or not but the syllabus is a great tool to help you gauge that need. It’s how I save money on books the whole year. Just a tip when you start looking for books in the near future.
