    Emily's Bio:
    I am a senior majoring in communication and minoring in photography. The College of St. Scholastica has been a great place for me to be throughout my college journey. I am fascinated by the world and am currently studying abroad at Regent's University London in England. I live for the little things and the adventures I stumble upon everyday. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, listening to and writing music, taking pictures, and exploring.

Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge

Today marked the first day of the Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge. The College of St. Scholastica will be competing against other colleges to promote and encourage the greatest amount of outdoor activity. Students, faculty and staff, and the greater community can sign up to participate at the ON Campus Challenge website. Once registered, participants are to log up to five outdoor activities per day for the next six weeks.


My friends and I started the challenge strong by logging multiple activities today. We began the day with a short paddle boarding trip to Island Lake; we paddled there but also practiced some yoga together near the beach. It was a beautiful, sunny day, perfect for spending a day with nature.


Storms rolled in to Duluth this evening causing our original evening plans to change. Instead of hiking and hammocking peacefully in Hartley Park, we ended up heading out on a crazy adventure in the rain. We did not let the unfavorable weather get in our way. We ran and hiked for over an hour in and around Chester Park through the down pour.
