Easter Break

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

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.

English Senior Farewell Dinner

Monday, May 8th, 2017

Every year the English faculty take the graduating cohort out to dinner to celebrate their success at St. Scholastica. While it’s mostly a time to share plans for the next segment of our life, it was also a way for the English faculty to let us know how much we mean to them. Each student was given a book somehow related to their journey as an English major. One student who wrote his first novel in the style of Tolkien received a title all about the creation of Middle Earth and Tolkiens rise to success. A journalism student received an autobiography by a reporter who traveled the U.S. in an exciting and slightly illegal way. I was given an educational piece titled “How To Be a Victorian.” I have taken several classes involving the Victorian Era and recently completed a Victorian themed photo project. Now I will have something to read on my flight to London! 

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.

Plants and Poetry

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

The English & Arts Club hosted Plants and Poetry this week as a way to celebrate the beautiful Spring weather we’ve been having. We had different types of prompts on the board such as “Write a poem that includes the recipe for your favorite dish”, choose a title prompts (The Dinosaurs Demise), and photo prompts. In addition to Poetry, we had flower seeds for everyone to plant and take home with them. This is always a fun activity that’s different than the usual chips and cookies given out at campus events. I am excited to graduate but I will definitely miss planning fun E&A events!
