    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.

Smart Decisions

Throughout my time as a college student (undergraduate and graduate) I have seen my decision-making skills mature. More specifically I have experienced occassions where I’ve wanted to go out and have fun with full knowledge that I should be studying. Often times I chose to go out saying, “Ya let’s have fun, it’s college – hooray!”

As I’ve matured I have seen that mindset of mine slowly disappear and grow into a more studious approach. For example, I was invited to a wedding this Saturday in Walker, MN. I have known about it since last year, had made hotel reservations, and even had a group of friends I was going to be traveling with. In my preperations I soon forgot that I would be 3 weeks into my fall semester of the physical therapy graduate program at CSS. This week was very overwhelming as assignments, readings, and study guides began to pile up. As much as I wanted to go to the wedding this weekend to see friends and past teammates I realized that my school work at this point is more important. I know that if I would have decided to go to the wedding I would of accomplished very little on my “to do” list for my classes. Instead of packing this evening for the trip tomorrow I called the hotel and cancelled my reservations, gave my card to a friend who is going, and have been studying this evening.

It is unfortunate that I won’t be able to be with my friends to help celebrate a past teammates wedding, but I know come Monday morning and throughout next week I will be thanking myself for the decision to stay back in Duluth this weekend and get some much needed studying time in and check off the things I have on my “to do” list.

Long story short…College is a wonderful time to experience new adventures, meet new people, celebrate good times with people. However, it is also important to remember the key reason we are at school and that is to earn an education. You get out of it what you put in and sometimes it is better in the long run to make small sacrifices (not going out, not going to a wedding, not staying up all night playing video games) in order to stay on top of your academics.
