Community Day

Monday, February 26th, 2018

This week we have Community Day, which is a day off from school so students can get out into the Duluth community to volunteer.  As a part of Dignitas freshman year, it was mandatory to participate in Community Day.  My class would pick up trash in the City Parks for a couple of hours.  After freshman year, students are not mandated to go out in the community, but there still are a lot of people that do.  As a part of athletics, most teams volunteer together.  There are also a ton of different clubs that are out volunteering on Wednesday too!  When I volunteered my freshman year, the news stations were roaming around Duluth trying to find students that were volunteering.  I just missed being on the news, which was a bummer (good thing I don’t watch the news anyways).  I’m looking forward to seeing the variety of activities that students participate in, as well as having a day off from school!!

Puppy Fever

Lately I’ve been really wanting dog snuggles. I don’t necessarily want a dog, I just want to hug play with one. A few of my friends have dogs, but what would I do if they weren’t around?

Campus Tours

Monday, October 24th, 2016

This week is an open house week on campus for high school students interested in the College of St. Scholastica so the halls are packed with potential students. Admissions is so full with tours that they actually had to turn down several groups of students including two Upward Bound groups. Because I am so heavily involved with TRIO programs on campus, I volunteered to give these two groups a tour. This was a new experience for me and it was fun to answer so many questions about how college has affected my life. Something I didn’t expect from this volunteer experience was noticing when students seemed to light up when I mentioned different things such as choir, the theater program, or the cadaver labs. I know that I helped these students feel more confident in their college pursuit and I hope I convinced some of them that St. Scholastica is the place to be!

No-Stress Volunteering at the BHC

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

In high school, I remember I used to stress out about finding volunteering opportunities that would help me add some weight to my college applications. I worried about having enough volunteering hours to impress the admissions committees at my dream colleges. I freaked out over seeking out the right places to volunteer at.
