    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.

Great Undergraduate Professors

I want to take a moment to look back on a few of my professors that I truly appreciated during my undergraduate years at the College of St. Scholastica – that are still teaching. I had some fantastic professors that are now retired and since orientation will be coming up soon for incoming freshman, I want to point out a few names to look for when you are signing up for classes.

James Crane – He teaches in the English department and teaches classes in regards to literature and writing. I had Dr. Crane for Freshman English Composition. This course really set the foundation for the “college level” writing that is necessary to achieve in order to be successful at CSS. Dr. Crane has a fun, enthusiastic, and genuine personality that makes the transition to college writing that much smoother.

MaryAlice Carlson – She teaches in the Psychology department and has been doing so for almost 20 years. She teaches four courses including: Intro to Counseling, Abnormal Psychology, Group Dynamics, and Lifespan Developmental Psychology. I had her for Abnormal Psychology and it was such an awesome class! She was so fun and enthusiastic with the topics she taught and it was obvious that she was not only educating the mind, but also the heart.

Steven Ostovich – Dr. Ostovich teaches generally philosophy courses like Philosophy of Person as well as Political Philosophy and Philosophy of Religion. I had him for Philosophy of Person and although difficult at times, he did a fantastic job at challenging me to learn to think and read critically. My favorite thing about Dr. Ostovich was/is his open door policy. He is always up for a chat to discuss class topics and to talk about the baseball team.

Tony Barrett – Dr. Barrett’s expertise is in economics and finance. Thankfully, I did not have him for any of these classes. I had Dr. Barrett for my freshman Dignitas course. This course included making a mission and vision for my life, examining a book by Stephen R. Covey, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, and much more. He really challenged me to dig deep into who I was and who I wanted to be. I still carry with me some of the thoughts and personal findings that I developed in this class thanks to Dr. Barrett. Another great individual who is truly genuine and wants you, as a student, to flourish here at CSS.

CSS hires wonderful faculty. These four professors and their courses had a lasting impact on me and I highly recommend, if you have the opportunity, taking a class by one, if not all, of these faculty members!
