Move in!

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

I’m in Duluth, and I have to say, I love this time of the year! I also love the quiet summers, but there is nothing as vibrant as the vibe in Duluth when students start arriving for college. It feels weird not being a part of it anymore, but I still feel connected being a graduate student. My advice for move in time is to enjoy it! Take photos, meet new people, and have an open mind. Do not judge, discriminate, or stereotype. Open your mind to endless opportunities and possibilities! This is the best time of the school year. And if you’re like me, you won’t be able to sleep before your first day of class..just as if you’re still in K-12!

History in the making…

Therapy Dog

Friday, November 13th, 2015

Reason #217 why St. Scholastica is the coolest college around… We have the fluffiest, nicest, and cutest therapy dogs! Walking down the hall and I stop for a couple minutes to pet our therapy dog and I was instantly smiling and feeling great! Day made!  


Saturday fun

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

Looking for a fun place to go with your friends? I’d suggest Tavern on the Hill by UMD and Chilly Billy’s. The atmosphere is unbeatable. It includes dim lighting, tons of windows, outdoor seating, and a huge menu with plenty of happy hour appetizers and drinks. Last night myself and 6 other girls went to the Tavern for happy hour before going to Grandma’s Sports Garden. We got $3 pizzas and half off margaritas. The Tavern is a great spot for socializing, good food, and even better atmosphere. 

Saving up for New Orleans

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

One of my biggest goals this summer has been to save money. Save money not only for school and food, but for an upcoming trip to New Orleans for the American Health Information Management Associations national conference. Each pay check I get I put into my savings account right away, if I have a fun event coming up I take out what I think I’ll need in cash and set a budget. This has worked well for me in the past, and having a goal to reach, like being able to go to New Orleans in a couple months, is really motivating me in this process!
