    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.

State Fair Top 5!

What would the end of summer be without a trip to the Minnesota State Fair? The “Great Minnesota Get Together” was attended by 1,769,872 people this year….assuming nobody snuck in. The State Fair is an excellent end-of-summer activity because it allows for one more good-bye before you head back to school. Since all of the Residential Advisors were already up in Duluth, we thought the State Fair would be an excellent, and much needed break. Here is my list of top 5 things to do at the state fair:

 5) Walk around in matching t-shirts- It is always hilarious to watch a large mass of people, particularity a family, walk around in matching t-shirts. Marisa Sanderson, the Residential Life Coordinator, thought going to the State Fair would be an excellent way to promote the school…and great opportunity to wear matching shirts.

4) Try to lift the giant pumpkins… Or maybe just look at them. While the giant pumpkins are in fact giant, I would not advise lifting these massive thousand pound vegetables.

3) Embarrass yourself in front of the marines by attempting to do pull-ups– I did not have the chance to attempt a pull-up….however, I did watch dozens of sweaty fair-goers “attempt” to impress their girlfriends at the marine booth.

 2) Attempt to consume your body weight in fried food– Everyone has their favorite junk food. Mine are always the same…cheese curds, mini-doughnuts and cookies. What are yours?

1) Annoy the workers at the Scholastica booth for free water bottles- Yes, because this is a St. Scholastica blog, I feel that it is fitting to place the St. Scholasdtica booth in the #1 spot. We stumbled upon the St. Scholastica booth in the education building, took a few pictures, stole some pins, water bottles and ran.

Well there it is. These are just five of the bazillion things to do at the Minnesota State Fair.

Have a great day!
