    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..

Community Day 6.0

Community Day is a great opportunity to live out our Benedictine Values – #SaintsInAction! A CSS tradition since 1999, Community Day happens once in the fall, and again in the spring, when the CSS community is encouraged to participate in a day of service in our community. Students, staff, and faculty go out in groups to make a difference in the lives of others. About 1,000 students, staff, and faculty typically participate in Community Day!

This Spring, I participate in my sixth Community Day since starting at CSS! Each semester, the college provides the entire CSS community with an opportunity to take part in various service-oriented activities around the Duluth area. I will be volunteering at Lincoln Park Middle School tomorrow where I and two other CIS students will be sharing our experiences with kids and teaching them computer science basics.

Other students, faculty, and staff take part in activities such as:

  • Trail and park maintenance
  • Making pies
  • Serving at local social service agencies
  • Helping kids with their homework
  • Conducting mock interviews for high school seniors
  • Reading to elementary school kids
  • Meeting with legislators at the state capitol to advocate for the Minnesota State Grant Program
