Cheap Movie Tickets!

Monday, April 9th, 2018

If there is one thing that college students love to do, it’s going to movies with our friends. There is a great movie theatre in downtown Duluth called Marcus Theatres and they offer some awesome deals for college students that I wanted to mention. One of those deals is “Movie Tuesdays” where any movie is only $5 to see. They also have “Student Thursdays” where admission is only $6. The theatre is very nice and in a great location also. My friends and I are planning on taking advantage of one of these deals this week as we are planning to go see the hottest new horror movie “A Quiet Place”. One of my favorite parts about going to college here in Duluth is that there is so much happening in the city and so much to do that I am never bored. Whether it’s going to a movie, to Spirit Mountain to ski or snowboard, Chester Park, the mall, or whatever else it might be, there is no shortage of things to do for fun both in Duluth and also right on campus, as well.

My typical Thursday

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

Thursdays are by far my favorite day of the school week. This is because it is the only day of the week I do not have an 8am class. However I do have a field experience starting at 9 am so I still have to get up. I have to complete 20 hours of field experience as a part of my Introduction to Education course.

Mentor Connection Event

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Tonight I attended the fifth Mentor Connection event. This is a series of six events lined up through the academic year for students to be paired up with professionals in their anticipated career. The mentor is there to provide guidance and advice on steps to take for your career.  The program by Northforce, is meant to help us students before we venture into our desired career paths. During these events we will engage in discussions on various topics that may affect us in business world. Tonight’s topic was on volunteering in the community and how that makes a huge difference in the community. Volunteering is also a way to know your skills and apply them in your career. I have learned a lot from all those past events and would encourage every student to at participate in Mentor Connection. Besides, this might be a good chance to create lifelong connections with mentors, who could hire you after school. The program is free to all CSS and UMD students, and there is lots of bonding, and well of course good food at each event.

Animal Allies Internship

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

As I was searching for summer jobs, a Spring internship sort of fell into my lap. I just completed my third week as a Marketing and Special Events Intern at Animal Allies Humane Society. Right now I am working on creating and promoting material for the Walk for Animals 25th Anniversary. This fundraiser is a big part of keeping the pets at Animal Allies healthy and happy until they find their new forever homes. The projects I am working on are pivotal to the success of the event. For example, I advertise the event on different websites, social media, and to local organizations. With the guidance of my internship advisors, I created Fundraiser Kits for the participants and some fun email content to keep them motivated to meet their fundraising goals. I love the work I do and I love how many puppies and kitties are around! It’s hard not to take one home. If you’re interested in the Walk for Animals on June 3rd, sign up at www.Thewalkforanimals.com!
