    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..

Veni, vidi, vici.

This is Latin for:

“I came, I saw, I conquered.”

These famous words, according to Plutarch,¬† are attributed to Julius Caesar’s summary of his swift victory at Zela, in 47 B.C., over King Pharnaces of Pontus in the Pontic campaign. I recently spoke to a few students who graduated from The College of St. Scholastica about their time at CSS and what they hope to do after graduation. It was really interesting to learn from and about their experiences and it was amazing just how much of a difference time at CSS has on someone’s life.

Most of the students I talked to were international students such as Fitsum, Isaac, Chazo, Zhara, to mention but a few. They all appreciate the advantages that come with the relatively small class sizes at CSS which often helps to give students more time towel together or network with professors or TAs. I got lot of advice on making the most out of college and I was so motivated by their accomplishments and the wisdom they were imparting on me.

As a freshman myself, I am glad to have brushed shoulders with many seniors. The few I have grown to known over the past 9 months or so I have been at CSS have played an influential role in making my first year in college fruitful and enjoyable. So I encourage you, dear reader, to network as much as you can for it will change your life, somehow.
