    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.

Professor Talk

I have taken courses with many incredible professors while at The College of St. Scholastica. Each and every one of them have been extraordinary; they truly care about my education. Through our liberal arts curriculum, we have the opportunity to take classes with professors with numerous disciplines of study including Philosophy, American Indian Studies, Music, Math, Art, Religion, Science, and more. I found my way to the Communication major, so I have taken at least one class with each of the Communication, Theatre, and Art professors, except for one. But, through my involvement with the CSS theatre, I had the opportunity to learn from her anyway. It would be very difficult for me to pick my favorite professor at CSS, so, instead, I will share a story of one of the moments with a professor that has left a lasting impact on my life and the path I will choose to follow in the future. William [Bill] Bastian is a Professor of Voice at CSS. I had the opportunity to take both a Beginning Voice Class and Private Voice Lessons with him. I learned a deeper passion for singing and the skills needed to sing more efficiently, but I also learned my new favorite life motto. Bill would always say, “I sing, because it’s fun.” I found a great amount of truth, value, and passion in that one, short statement. I discovered how I would understand my calling in life. If I spent the time to notice my passions and pursue them, I would be forever happy. I will choose my path, my career, and my life, based upon whether or not I feel content doing so. I sing, because it is fun. I write, because it’s fun. I go to college, because it’s fun. I do yoga, because it’s fun. I am me, because it’s fun. Thank you, Bill Bastian, for teaching me how to stumble upon the joys in life again.
