    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

7 reasons why CSS is outrageously beautiful

Here are a few things that I think make CSS a great place to be! There are 7 days in a week so might as well as list 7 items for lack of a better reason.

  1. Small school, small Classes, plenty of opportunities – My smallest class had 11 students in it and the largest had about 25! Being in a small class means there are higher chances of establishing a firm and sound relationship with the professor or instructor for that class. Your voice will count more and your absence will be duly noticed! If you ever want to be the ‘big fish in a small pond’, CSS is the place to be!
  2. 3 dining options at your disposal – One can have a decent meal at Greenview Dining Hall, Storm’s Den or at Einsten’s! There are grocery stores within walking distance should you choose to make your own food, try something new or satiate your hunger elsewhere.
  3. Anyone can live anywhere on campus – ResLife changed housing options to accommodate students in apartments and dorms starting next year. Oh if you are living in the dorms, thou shall not stress during a winter storm! There are tunnels that connect all the main buildings and you might not need to go out that much during winter (well you need to for health reasons!)
  4. A par-excellent library down the hall from Tower! – The library is a very nice space. This is one place where good grades are manufactured! I love the uppermost section – dubbed ‘The Silent Floor’, where you can hear your hair grow!
  5. Amazing views – CSS is on top of a hill and affords one an excellent view of the lake and Duluth neighborhood, especially from the balconies in Tower. There are great tracks that snake through the thickets surrounding the school on the rear end and these make up for a great hike on a hot and lazy day!
  6. Benedictine Community – The Sisters at CSS are extremely nice and friendly. They go all the way to get to know students through interactions in the hallways, classes, playgrounds, and even at their own residence where they occasional invite students for dinner!
  7. The students! – Obviously, we are the ones that make CSS CSS! Attend one CSS event and you might believe me! 😀

Wanted to talk about other reasons, but there are 7 days in a week and I will draw my line here, for now!:lol:
