    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Frigid Duluth Temps

It is no secret that Duluth can have temperatures that make outdoor activities hard to tolerate in the winter. During my time at St. Scholastica in undergrad I found there was always some sort of activity going on to attend on campus (i.e. grocery bingo, mini concerts, comedians, discussions, plays, intramurals, etc.). These types of activities are great ways to meet new people on campus and win free prizes!

When winter temps are nice there are countless things to do, both on and off campus, including fat tire biking, hiking the trails, ice fishing, XC skiing, snowshoeing, skiing and snowboarding, hunting, and outdoor ice hockey rinks just to name a few. Duluth is such an amazing city where adventure is not far from your campus door room or apartment. However, on the occasion when temperatures get towards those that are depicted in the picture below, sometimes you have to come up with some new ideas to fill up those much needed study breaks. During the cold snaps when we can’t get outside my girlfriend and I enjoy doing puzzles together, battling it out in Mario Kart, watching a Netflix episode, meal prepping, calling home to talk to family, ordering Chinese delivery, researching and planning our next outdoor adventures, working out, etc. However, no one can stay inside forever! So even if it just for a few minutes, get outside, get some fresh air, make a snow angel, but bundle up and be safe!


Quick trip outside to make snow angels after being cooped up in the apartment during the latest cold snap here in Duluth.

An evening spent “puzzling” resulted in this finished 1,000 piece Disney masterpiece!

The recent wind chills in the state of Minnesota last week. Duluth was seeing wind chills in the -40’s! Brrrrrr!
