Class Registration Problems

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

I think I’ve mentioned this earlier, but I hadn’t been officially accepted into the M.Ed. program here at St. Scholastica until a few days ago. Because of that, I wasn’t able to register before. As soon as I got in officially instead of just provisionally, I tried to register… but I couldn’t. It said my PIN was invalid. I’ve spent the past few days trying to troubleshoot it with OneStop and other departments, but with Memorial Weekend it was a really long process. Since classes start next Monday, I’ve been incredibly nervous I wouldn’t be able to register in time! My online adviser got back to me after the long weekend and solved the apparent two issues with my registration. I’m signed up and ready to go (just kidding I’m missing one textbook still).

I’m going to Graduate School!

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

I have been in the McNair Scholars Program for two years now so it’s really not a surprise that I am going to Graduate School. However, until this Spring I still wasn’t 100% sure where I wanted to go or even what I wanted to study. Applying for graduate school was extremely stressful at first. Following my first draft of my personal statement I couldn’t help but feel it was…impersonal. It felt like I was trying to impress someone. It didn’t feel like me. I came up with an idea that I thought was pretty interesting: talk about the time I was a Disney princess. With the nod of approval from my advisor Dr. Stephanie Johnson, I re-wrote my personal statement fused with my love for Disney and volunteer work. It worked! I was accepted into every grad school I applied for. I am happy to announce that this Fall I will be attending Western Michigan University pursuing a degree in Communication. 

2017 Spring Finals Schedule

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

I apologize if the photo is tough to see. Our finals this semester are blocked off in 2 hour increments with nice long breaks in between. The 2nd year finals are in blue and they include Monday 8-10 – Lifespan Application I: Pediatrics, Monday 1-3 – Multiple System Eval and Management, Tuesday 8-10 – Administration II, and Tuesday  1-3 – Neuromuscular Eval and Management II. As for the first year students (red),  on Monday from 8-10 they are taking Exam and Eval II, Monday 1-3 – Lifespan, and Tuesday 8-10 – Interventions II. The first year students lucked out and will be on break just a few hours before the 2nd years! Darn it!
