    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.

Let the Games Begin….

Classes are starting this week, so I thought I would post my class list.

Like I stated in an early post, I have a somewhat easy semester. I have scheduled my classes so that I only have class on Tuesday and Thursdays….creating a four day weekend every weekend 😀  The Biology course load is pretty standard for the first three years. However, senior year allows for more freedom in class choice depending on what field you want to go in…so, because I am applying to medical school I have chosen a few upper division classes designated for “pre-med” students.  I have searched through the St. Scholastica catalog to find the descriptions for the classes I am taking. I chose “Pathophysioloy” and “Conversations with the Naturalists” to fulfill Biology requirements and took “Pre-Raphealites” to work towards graduating with “Honors”.

 BIO/HSC 3020 – Pathophysiology : Study of the general mechanisms of disease at the cellular and molecular levels, including abnormalities of fluid distribution, the inflammatory process, abnormal immune mechanisms,and neoplastic disease, followed by an application of the basic principles of pathologic processes to diseases of the neurologic, endocrine, reproductive, hematologic, cardiovascular,pulmonary, renal and digestive systems. Prerequisite: a completed course in Anatomy/Physiology.

 BIO 3101 – Conversations with the Naturalists:Keen observation and interpretation of living organisms and their environment. Naturalists have also done some of the best sciencewriting for the layperson. This course provides students with an opportunity to read, observe, reflect and write about the natural world and its interpretation.

 ART 1120 Drawing I: Develops the student’s sense of familiarity and ease with drawingmaterials as well as his/her sense of perception, which goes beyond the limitations of habit. It also explores subjective approaches to subjectmatter. Traditional situations and materials form the basis of the course.

 HON 4640 The Pre-Raphaelites: In 1848, John EverettMillais,WilliamHolman Hunt,and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, students atLondon’s Royal Academy of Art, agreed that art had taken a wrong turn three centuries earlier. Calling themselves the PRB – Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood – they set to work reclaiming the spirit of the early Italian master painters, using biblical,mythological andmedieval subject matter to create passionate, visionary art. Although the original three members stayed together as the PRB for only five years, they attracted awide range of disciples – poets,painters,and social reformers -who expanded their influencewell into the 20th century. This classwill examine the literature and visual art of the PRB and allied writers and painters. We will attempt to understand the Pre-Raphaelites’works in a variety of interrelated ways: as art and literature, as spiritual expression, as cultural product, as personal/biographical expression and as agent of social reform.

 PSY/GER 3325 Group Dynamics: Study of psychological principles and development of personal skills in working with groups. Topics include group facilitation, ways in which groups are studied, stages of group development, leadership, communication, norms and roles, power, conflict and ethics.Opportunity is given to experience these dynamics in small groups. Prerequisite: one course in general or developmental psychology, junior status in the Communications Department, or consent of the instructor.

Have a great start to your school year.
