Library Study Time

Friday, April 20th, 2018

Today I found myself in the St. Scholastica library taking a practice exam for my upcoming National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE). The library is a great spot for getting work done. The 2nd and 3rd floors are reserved for “quiet study”, and the first floor is often times used for larger group projects where some discussion goes on.

How to Study For Finals

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.

Scorebuilders PT Exam Prep Class

Friday, April 6th, 2018

In addition to the capstone/elective projects that we, the 2018 doctor of physical therapy graduating class, presented on this week to our faculty and peers, we also had two days of the Scorebuilders On-Campus Review Course. This review course was provided by the physical therapy department to assist students in study preparation and test taking skills for the National Physical Therapy Exam (NPTE). It consisted of two full days of discussion, practice questions, helpful tips and tricks, etc. to hopefully improve test scores. We focused on all the systems the exam covers: Musculoskeletal, Neuromuscular, Cardiopulmonary, Other Systems, and Non-Systems. We also focused on the types of mistakes including, academic, decision making, and test taking and at what level the questions were – 1, 2 or 3. All of this was to help emphasize the weaker areas so that we can put more focus on the area(s) going forward. The NPTE is the exam all physical therapists are required to pass in order to practice physical therapy. It is essentially the culmination of our three years of coursework and internship information. With less than 3 weeks before I take my exam, it was a very helpful exam prep/review session! Back to studying!

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.

Computer Information Systems Overview

Friday, March 30th, 2018

Hey everyone! My name is Jack Seibert and I am a sophomore at CSS this year. This is my first blog post so I thought I would give a brief overview of my major, Computer Information Systems. This major is very similar to Computer Science programs at other colleges, but the biggest difference is that it is a lot more flexible than others you will come across. Within the major, there are four different concentrations you can choose from. These concentrations include Software Development (this is mine!), Mathematics, Business Analysis, and Health Informatics. Software Development and Mathematics are both Bachelors of Science degrees, and Business Analysis and Health Informatics are both Bachelors of Arts degrees. All four of these are very valuable and will allow you to apply for a lot of different careers after you graduate. I really enjoy the major because it allows me to gain experience with a lot of different concepts and isn’t just solely focused on coding or algorithms. After I graduate, I hope to pursue something along the lines of web design and development, but like I said before, this degree will open a lot of doors for me if I decide to pursue something a bit different later on. I hope this overview gives you a good little glimpse into the program and gets you thinking about possibly becoming a part of it when you get on campus!
