Today on campus I participated in the It’s On Us Rally. This rally was focused on supporting those people who are sexual assault survivors in our community. This can also be attributed to the #MeToo movement.

MICS Conference

Monday, April 9th, 2018

This past weekend, on Friday and Saturday, The College of St. Scholastica played host to the annual Midwest Instruction and Computing Symposium or MICS Conference. The conference is held at a different Midwest college each year and we were lucky enough to have it right on campus this year. The two day conference included many different events such as technical paper sessions, programming contests, robotics competitions, a career fair, and a variety of different speakers across various disciplines. The conference was a big success and was a great way for those of us here at CSS to network and meet with other people across the Midwest. The main focus of the conference was to integrate computer-based technology into teaching and learning processes of all disciplines, along with incorporating the study of this technology into the curriculum. Here at St. Scholastica, we have a very strong School of Business and Technology that gives students an excellent education and provides us with many opportunities throughout the year to build our resumes and to enhance our learning experiences with just one of them this year being the MICS Conference. Thanks to all the CSS students who attended, volunteered, or participated in the conference!

Some of the advantages of going to a Catholic (or Christian) school definitely include Easter Break. This short break that runs Thursday through Monday of the Easter Holidays is a nice time to go home.

Computer Information Systems Overview

Friday, March 30th, 2018

Hey everyone! My name is Jack Seibert and I am a sophomore at CSS this year. This is my first blog post so I thought I would give a brief overview of my major, Computer Information Systems. This major is very similar to Computer Science programs at other colleges, but the biggest difference is that it is a lot more flexible than others you will come across. Within the major, there are four different concentrations you can choose from. These concentrations include Software Development (this is mine!), Mathematics, Business Analysis, and Health Informatics. Software Development and Mathematics are both Bachelors of Science degrees, and Business Analysis and Health Informatics are both Bachelors of Arts degrees. All four of these are very valuable and will allow you to apply for a lot of different careers after you graduate. I really enjoy the major because it allows me to gain experience with a lot of different concepts and isn’t just solely focused on coding or algorithms. After I graduate, I hope to pursue something along the lines of web design and development, but like I said before, this degree will open a lot of doors for me if I decide to pursue something a bit different later on. I hope this overview gives you a good little glimpse into the program and gets you thinking about possibly becoming a part of it when you get on campus!
