    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..

August Adventures

August is here (well I’m a few days late) and the new month brings with it several nerve-wrecking, hair-tingling, and electrifying adventures. Some will be getting on a plane for the first time, others will be taking long road trips to Duluth, some will just drive up the hill, others cross the lake  and come from all corners of the country and the globe to converge at CSS. At CSS, August is mostly famous for what’s called August Adventures which is pretty much a glorified ice breaker, in my own opinion of course, where people make new friends, familiarize with the campus and Duluth, before the semester begins. The four main pillars of this program include:

Community Service Orientation (CSO)

Student Outdoor Adventure Retreat (SOAR)

Multicultural Leadership Orientation (MLO)

New International Student Orientation

In my freshman year, I took part in the Orientation and later on assisted in running the next orientation session for international students. It was about one of the best moments of my summer!
