Winter Fun 101

Friday, January 12th, 2018

Last week I was scrolling through Facebook at just the right time to see a picture posted by Winter Fun 101. The photo was captioned, “Hey! The first person to correctly guess where we are will get two all day lift tickets at Spirit Mountain. Go:”. I quickly typed in the location and WON! I just received my lift tickets in the mail and am looking at dates on the calendar for a good day to go shred the slopes. Winter Fun 101 has some fantastic information on awesome things to do during the winter in the upper midwest. Their website has an event calendar and locations you can go to participate in activities like for alpine skiing, fat tire biking, ice sailing, ice climbing, dog sledding, snowmobiling, snowboarding, and cross country skiing. There is always something to do up in Duluth and the surrounding area during the winter months. So get out there and enjoy the opportunities in the backyard of the College of St. Scholastica!


Frigid Duluth Temps

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

It is no secret that Duluth can have temperatures that make outdoor activities hard to tolerate in the winter. During my time at St. Scholastica in undergrad I found there was always some sort of activity going on to attend on campus (i.e. grocery bingo, mini concerts, comedians, discussions, plays, intramurals, etc.). These types of activities are great ways to meet new people on campus and win free prizes!

Improv Night!

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

The English & Arts Club hosted an improv workshop with the help of Merry Vaughan and Sharon Dixon Obst. We started with some basics: never ask questions, don’t think too much, and never deny someone. The first warmup we did was to make sure we didn’t deny anyone. Someone would make a statement and the next person would say, “Yes and…”, to build off of their statement. This prevents us from saying, “No”, “but”, “although”, and other words that make it sound like we are saying the other person is wrong. This is important because the scene is NEVER going to go exactly the way you’d expect so you have to embrace other people’s ideas of where it’s going. Next, we tossed an invisible ball back and forth saying a word each time we caught it. This was to keep us from thinking too much. The goal is to pass the ball quickly so that you say the first word that comes to your mind instead of trying to think ahead. After this, we tried some games! We did a scene building game and played “Who’s coming to dinner?” Everyone was laughing and having a good time, even if we occasionally messed up by asking a question or disagreeing. To finish off the night, Merry and Sharon performed a game of “Triathalon” where Merry has to get Sharon to guess three very unusual scenarios without using any real words. One example was scuba diving in Maple Syrup with Justin Trudeau. It was a blast! They also mentioned a new improv club has started on campus and I might just have to check it out! 

Disc Golf

Monday, March 20th, 2017

Duluth welcomed all the college students back with some beautiful weather! I absolutely had to get outside to enjoy it and disc golf was the obvious solution. There was only one problem: it snowed last week. Snow + Sun = Mud. We decided against playing all nine holes due to our mud caked fingers but it was still nice to get outside for a little bit.
