Online Class Tips 

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Sometimes taking an online class is overwhelming. This is especially true if you don’t know anyone in the class either! My first tip is to read your classmate’s introductions in your first discussion post. Get to know the students that are now in the same boat as you. Check to see if you know anyone, if you do, it wouldn’t hurt to reach out to them and become “class buddies” so you can always text and email each other when you have questions or need encouragement. This doesn’t mean to work on everything together!! This means, to hold each other accountable and help if you have a question on something. It’s nice to have someone to reach out to! My next tip is to not be afraid to post questions or to email your professor if you need help after you have exhausted all of your resources available to you! Finally, get your work done on time and do not procrastinate in online classes. You will thank yourself in the long run if you do your work in a timely order!

Annual Scholarship and Creative Arts Presentation

Thursday, April 27th, 2017


Yesterday I presented my research at the annual Scholarship and Creative Arts presentation in the Benedictine Commons. This was possibly my favorite time I presented my research. Because it was at St. Scholastica, so many students and faculty who were involved with the concert in some way visited my poster excited to hear what I worked on. Singers who’ve performed in it, artists who designed and painted the mural we donated this year, and several audience members asked insightful questions and occasionally tried to stump me! I had a great time working on this project but I am excited to move on to something new in graduate school this Fall.

National Conference on Undergraduate Research: Day One

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

After three hours of flying and six hours of layover, we finally made it to Memphis! We started the events with an opening speech by Fred Smith, founder, chairman, and CEO of the FedEx Corporation and philanthropist extrodanair. He introduced us to Lil’ Rico, the first delivery robot built by FedEx and discussed how automated machinery aka “robots” affect the economy. His take away message was that industry is always changing and historically it has created more jobs and a more efficient life. This is one of the many reasons conferences like this are hosted, to bring bright minds together to share ideas that innovate the way we live. After the intro, Jamie and I attended a communications oral presentation session. One presentation was about masculinity in How I Met Your Mother and it was especially interesting.

Digital Media Studios 

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

The final class I have this semester is Digutal Media Studio. I’m gonna be doing and editing a lot of videos in the class that’s required for my major. This class interests me because I’ve always thought what good youtube channels do to edit their videos. I’ve always liked the idea of editing videos for highlight reels for everything from sports to video games. This class will let me explore different tech to shoot different things. I can’t wait to learn so much from this class.
