RachelWNSR

Hello, my name is Rachel Weyenberg. I am a sophomore at the College of St. Scholastica and currently pursing a major in nursing. I chose to become a part of NSR because by being in Professor Liang’s class, I’ve realized that our generation is moving much faster than previous generations. We sometimes get so caught up in our personal lives that we forget to slow down and really think about our experiences and actions not only affect us, but also others around us.
During my junior and senior year of high school I had the opportunity to travel to Little Haiti. Going on a mission trip was really eye opening for me. I learned to be appreciative for the smaller things in life, and was exposed…

Hello, my name is Jena O’Byrne I am from Stewartville, MN. I am a student at the College of St. Scholastica and will be graduating in 2019. I have always dreamed of being a Nurse, following in my mother’s footsteps. Along with pursuing Nursing at CSS I am on the softball team. I love that at CSS I am able to get an education and play the sport that I love.

Growing up in a close knit family has shaped who I am. Spending each summer traveling the country with my family fed into my love for history. Professor Liang’s World History Class changed the way I view history. I now am able to see how history directly impacts us all, rather than just reading about…

Hello everyone! My name is Sarah Burton. I grew up in Colfax, Wisconsin, which is a small town outside of Eau Claire. I am a junior at the College of St. Scholastica and am currently in the nursing program. While I am not busy studying, I try to spend as much time outside as I possibly can. I love to hike, swim, run, walk, kayak, rollerblade, camp, etc. If the weather is not pleasant I enjoy reading novels, painting, playing piano, and watching films.

This will be my first year with The North Star Reports and I am excited to be a part of something that is growing and being used by many students. I enjoy how a lot of the articles get comments that continue…

NancyThaoNSR

Hello, my name is Nancy Thao. I am a senior at the College of St. Scholastica who will be graduating in spring 2017. I am majoring in Health Information Management with a minor in Computer Information Systems. I was born in California, but raised up and currently living in St. Paul, MN.

I am very passionate in learning about other cultures and traditions. I find it a valuable experience to be able to open up and engage with others respectfully. My dream of traveling the world is still far from sight, but I will take this chance to immerse myself in my own community. With this said, I would like to share a quote that popped up in my head while walking to school on a…

Jonia Bio NSR

Hello, my name is Jonia Gordon. I am a recent graduate of the College of St. Scholastica with a major in Global, Cultural, and Language Studies (GCL). I was born and raised in Red Cliff, WI and that resulted in attending schooling with a rather small group of people. I attended K12 schooling, with a class size of 27, most of whom I was related to in some way. After moving forward, with attending college and studying abroad, I have been able to reflect about my experience and how it has influenced me as a person.

In particular, I feel that it played a role in my rather quiet and socially anxious nature because there lacked a need to introduce myself to people unless I wandered…

Hi! My name is Allison Brennhofer, I am from Saint Paul, Minnesota. I am a junior at the College of Saint Scholastica. My major is Humanities, focusing on English, History, and Women and Gender Studies, with a minor in Philosophy. I will graduate in the spring of 2018. At the present moment, I am thinking about attending graduate school for either Library Sciences or Curating.

I have always been an avid reader and writer, I would beg my parents for bedtime stories until I learned to read on my own. Then, my parents would need to turn my light off for me in order to make me go to sleep then (and often that didn’t even work, I would sneak a flashlight into bed with me)…

Hello, my name is Jodi Moran and I am from St. Michael- Albertivlle, MN. Since I am a transfer student I am currently a sophomore at Saint Scholastica but I am “supposed” to be a senior. I transferred to St.Scholastica to pursue a nursing degree with a minor in psychology. My expected graduation date is May 2018. The 3 out of my 4 brothers have/will graduate from St. Scholastica, so my family really likes this college.

I am originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin but moved to Minnesota in 2005, however green and gold runs through my blood. Growing up with all boys and living very close to Lambeau field, sports have been a very important role in my family and to me. I have participated in…

[Me hiking the eastern coast of Iceland]

I grew up in Side Lake, Minnesota, a very small community on a chain of lakes, up on the Iron Range of northern Minnesota. Some of my earliest memories are spending time at my cabin in Ontario, hunting with my dad, and fishing with family. I’ve always enjoyed being outside, and honestly, there isn’t much else to do in northern Minnesota except spend time outdoors. During the long Minnesota winters, my family goes snowmobiling, ice fishing, and downhill skiing.

Since I was 3 years old, I have had a love for skiing, and I’ve spent every winter downhill skiing ever since. I loved it so much when I was younger that I needed a leash attached to my jacket…

Hello! My name is Jemma Provance. I come from the little town of Roseau, Minnesota, and I’ll be graduating from the College of Saint Scholastica in 2019. I’m currently majoring in psychology, and minoring in art and theatre to make my parents proud. They raised me into the theatre and it’s a tradition I’m happy to continue throughout my life. Art, both visual and verbal, are things I’ve become passionate about myself.

One of my biggest goals in life is to empathize as much as possible. Not only with my friends, family, and professional cohorts, but with people I’ve never met and people I pass on the street. This combats my natural instinct to love animals more than people, and I found that admiring the human…

I think that picking a quote to define you is a good way to give people a sense of who you are in one sentence. A quote that I think best defines me comes from Eleanor Roosevelt, “Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you’ll be criticized anyways”. I believe that the path most frequently traveled is not always the right path, which is why I feel this statement by Roosevelt resonates with me so much. I enjoy the simple things in life: creating lasting memories with those I care for, exploring the world around me, and living out life in a positive manner.

I am passionate…
