    Pat's Bio:
    My name is Pat Bigaouette. I am a Senior Biology major. I run on the cross country and track teams at Scholastica. I currently live in Somers Hall as the Residential Advisor for Ground Floor North. Also, I am actively involved in Scholastica's theater program and hope to get cast in one of the four shows this season. This summer I conducted clinical research at Hennepin County Medical Center in the Emergency room. I also traveled to New York City to pick up a friend from school and, of course, saw the show "Wicked" on Broadway.

100 Years in the Making…

The College St. Scholastica has a long history, and a rich tradition. Being that Scholastica will celebrate its 100 birthday in 2012, I thought it would be a good idea to give a brief history of the school. While the Benedictine sisters traveled to the United States from Bavaria in 1852, they did not arrive in Duluth until 1881. Here is a brief history of the College of St. Scholastica and the Benedictine Sisters from daisy farm, to the centennial:

Daisy Farm 1909

1881: Mother Scholastica Kerst moved from St. Joseph Minnesota to take on ministries in 1881.

1889: Dioces of Duluth was established. James T McGolrick was the Bishop.

 1898: The sisters completed St. Mary’s Hospital

1899: The sisters purchased 80 acres of land, known at the “Daisy Farm” in the Kenwood neighborhood.

1907: 80 more acres were purchased and construction began.

1909: Construction was completed and was occupied by sisters and students at the “Villa Sancta Scholastica Academy”.

1912: The College of St. Scholastica formally opens with an enrollment of 6 students.

1924: Junior College expanded into a four year school.

1935: Scholastica launched the first Medical Records (now known as Health Information Management) baccalaureate degree in the nation.

1959: Community joined the Federation of St. Benedict.

1960: The nursing program became the second program in Minnesota to be accredited by the National League of Nursing

 1964: Somers hall was built.

1965: Community member numbers peaked with 520 members.

1967: Stanbrook Hall High School closed.

1986: Library and chapel “trade locations”.

1995: Accelerated Degree Evening Program was launched (ADEP).

2004-2005: Kerst, Scanlon and Cedar halls were opened.

2012: St. Scholastica celebrates its 100 anniversary with their Benedictine value: “For the Love of Learning”.
