Puppy Fever

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

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!

This Journey

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

As I prepare to head out on my first sea kayaking trip of the 2016 summer paddling season, I find myself thinking back to and reflecting on all of my past experiences on the water. The very first time I found myself on Lake Superior in a sea kayak was also my very first true college experience. I participated in the Student Outdoor Adventure Retreat program [SOAR trip], which was part of the August Adventures for incoming freshman at The College of St. Scholastica. I was led to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore by three student guides, one being Jane Sloan.
