Head of the Lakes Job Fair

Monday, March 9th, 2020

Hi everyone!

I would like to tell you about my experience going to the Head Lakes Job Fair with the College of Saint-Scholastica.  Job fairs are important even for freshmen because that is the place to start networking and get contacts. It can help you find an internship in your field of study which the experience out of it, will help you decide if  you like it and if you are in the right major for you. For this job fair, the school provided transportation, as they do most of the time. The fair took place at UWS, another college. All the major employers in Duluth and the Twin Ports area were present. A wide variety of discipline were represented such as finance, healthcare, law enforcement and sciences. The College always advertises when job fairs are happening and provides transportation for it. Some job fairs even occurs at the College so you don’t even need to leave campus. All the job fairs also have a photograph that takes free professional head shots. Those are useful for LinkedIn and Handshake profiles! Those are great opportunities for incoming students!


Roller Skating!

Friday, March 6th, 2020

I am a residential advisor at the college of Saint-Scholastica. The honors program and residential life partnered to make an event for our floor. The other residential advisor and I told residents that we were going to take them to World of Wheels. It’s a roller skating club. It was really fun. It does not matter what your level of roller skating. Some were beginners and some were advanced. Me, I was a beginner and in 1 hour, I knew how to skate decently. The roller skating place had good music playing and at one point, the owners brought a limbo stick and made people do the limbo in skates! There were a lot of students from the CSS community as well. Also there are drinks and food available. I liked that event because I found a new place where the CSS community could hang out and that is fun to spend time at. If you are an incoming freshmen, ask your Ras to make fun events like these and they will do it!


Student Panel & Prospective Freshmen

Saturday, March 30th, 2019

Today, a group of prospective students visited the school to get a better idea of what life at CSS is like. The experience was supposed to be enriched by the presence of a small group of students (myself among them) who sat with them to share our perspectives as CSS students. I was disappointed at how lacking the questions were and cliché the unprompted responses, so here is a Q&A monologue of the questions I would’ve liked answered as a prospective student:

Today I wrapped up the SOAR program with my Outdoor Pursuit co-guides. We had a successful, busy, and eventful five days up the North Shore with our group of incoming freshmen.
