    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.

What is Residential Life?

The Residential Life slogan is “Res Life: Where Living and Learning Meet”. Being part of the St. Scholastica community students are required to live on campus their first two years (Unless they live within inDuluth/surrounding area). Regardless if you live on or off campus, Residential Life will be a big part of your experience at St. Scholastica. So, let’s take a look at what exactly Residential Life does.


The goals of Residential life are as follows:

  1. A residential climate where students can pursue academics and experience a learning living environment.
  2. An atmosphere conducive to personal, spiritual, academic and social growth.
  3. Opportunityfor social events, educational programs: a warm, comfortable, yet challenging atmosphere for student growth.



Also, Residential Life provides all on campus students with Residential Advisors and Academic Role models to aide in the transition from life at home, to living on campus.  There are around 30 Residential Advisors on campus who are placed to “provide a listening ear and serve as a resource for student. They foster a close and caring community of students in the residential hall and apartments”. The mission of the RA team is “to build a strong bond with their residents, fellow teammates and the student body as a whole to create a connection that ensures all students are working to create a better community”.

To supplement the community-driven RA team, St Scholastica initiated a unique program to help students succeed academically. There are eights Academic Role Models on campus. Their goal is to create a positive educational climate in the residential halls. “They provide learning opportunities, study skills information and act as an academic resource for students”.  Each Academic Role Model holds weekly office hours to aide students in achieving their academic success.
