    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.

Throughout my time at CSS (including both graduate and undergraduate) I have had the opportunity to live in multiple settings. Freshman year I was in the mandatory Somer’s building with all the other freshman. Sophomore year I was in the Kerst apartment at the back of campus. Junior and senior year I lived in a house within a mile of campus. This past year and currently I have been living at the Boulder Ridge/Summit apartment complex within 2 miles of campus.

Having experienced all of these settings has given me the opportunity to see the pro’s and con’s of each.

Many students decide to live on campus throughout their entire stay at CSS due to the convenience and community oriented living. Others want to get off campus to get away from the academic scene to have a little more independence, while staying with good friends. It is also important to know that there are individuals that commute from home if they have the opportunity to.

In my opinion, all options are very good. CSS’s campus is a wonderful and safe environment and the city of Duluth is also an affordable and easily navigable area. For me, it always came down to the financial aspect of what worked best that year. I am glad to say I have found a great location as a graduate student at Summit Ridge, which has made my time in grad school easier since the management is run very well here.

As you look into housing during your stay at CSS be sure to look at all of your options, take tours, ask questions, look at the affordability and what the amenities are at each location. No matter where you decide to live, your time here at CSS is what you make of it!
