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.

Brighton Beach, Duluth

Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

Brighton Beach is a public park area located just north of downtown Duluth. It sits right on the shore of Lake Superior and offers many beautiful views of the lake and of the city. In the summer, you’ll find people swimming, walking, grilling, and spending time looking for agates. In the winter, you’ll find people walking their dogs, enjoying the views, and climbing around on ice covered rocks. This is one of my favorite spots in Duluth because you feel you are in a secluded place, yet you can see the lift bridge and downtown just a few miles away. I went here recently with my friend from UMD, who I graduated high school with. We walked around, talked, took in the views, and of course climbed around on the rocks, hoping to not get splashed by an ice cold wave. If you ever want a place to go and relax and take in the Duluth, MN views, this is the place to go, being only 15 minutes from campus.

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.

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!

Saturday, April 7th, 2018

For us students, at CSS, finals week is only 3 weeks away. This can be very intimidating because it seems so far away but it will come up in a very short period. For me, this semester I have 3 different types of finals.
