    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.

The Art of Going to College

The art of going to college is quite fascinating, and the way we juggle a full schedule of classes, part-time jobs, a social life, exercise, and extra-curricular activities is somewhat miraculous. The one thing that has kept me sane throughout the busy days and stressful times, is my yoga practice. I began my yoga journey before I came to school in Duluth, but it was solely for the fitness of it then. After my freshman year, I knew I needed to find a release for all of my stress and anxiety. I have a deep love for learning and a passion for keeping busy, but, sometimes, I feel as though I cannot handle all of the stress and pressure that comes along with college. Discovering yoga saved me. It helped me see the importance in the little things again. It helped me slow my world down. It helped me find clarity. It still helps me balance my stress today. Beginning college can be frightening, nerve-wrecking, and exciting all at once, but it is truly great. My experience has been nothing less than exceptional. With my yoga practice as a release from the stress in addition to playing my guitar from time-to-time or taking a walk in the woods, I have found clarity and peace in the busyness of it all.
