Happy July Parents!
This week has been busy and the sun has been gracing our office with it's beautiful brilliance. Almost no place is prettier than summer in Duluth. However, even though we are inside, we in the OneStop office are giddy when we get to send out your fall schedule bills. Why, you might ask? Because that means school is right around the river-bend and we can’t wait for student to flood the campus with chatter, footsteps and busywork. As a reminder, your student’s Fall Schedule/bills will has been sent to their CSS email this Week! Be sure to have them check their CSS email! If there are any questions, feel free to call, email, or come in to talk to a smiling, happy counselor.
If you are a little confused about reading your Schedule/Bill, click the link below for additional help. As always, if there are any questions, comments, concerns, or you would like some candy, stop in or contact our OneStop office (we won't mail candy however, too messy). We'll be waiting and ready for anything you might need!

The summer is filled with flowers, sunshine, and weekend trips to cabins. The grass is the greenest as the July reaches it’s peak. However, the leaves will start to fall and the campus will be brimming with bright student’s ready to start their year full of ambition. Whether your student is wanting to continue work, or starting their first on-campus job, check out student job postings here:

Remember, if your student is a first-year, they will be restricted to ten hours of on-campus work; this helps with finding a perfect balance of work, learning and play. Enjoy the sunshine because the beautiful Duluth Fall is just around the corner.

Hello Parents!
        St. Scholastica is so proud your child is a part of our wonderful, loving, encompassing community. Each student’s journey is filled with hard work, fun times, and memorable moments within our Castle and outside on our beautiful campus. Whether your student is going to be a scientist or poet, Scholastica has a place for them and will do all possible to foster their intellectual curiosity and harbor their physical well-being. The journey might be theirs, but it is a strong support staff that will see them to graduation.
       It was wonderful meeting each of you who stopped at our table during the information fair.  As a reminder, please encourage your student to complete their authorizations if they have not yet done so already. Our counselors are here to guide your students and answer any questions. Our goal is to help students feel more comfortable with their business responsibilities, allowing them more time to fully engage in academics and campus activities.

Throughout the year we will be posting important dates, pertinent information to educational resources, posting interesting academic articles, and answering any questions you may have about affording and paying for college. Be sure to periodically tune in to the blog to see what news we have to say and see how you can help your student from the sidelines. Sometimes, the most help you can offer is to just be there, to let them know they are taken care of and loved. As always, be sure to stop into the OneStop office on the first floor of Tower Hall in room 1130. We will be waiting for you with open arms, smiling faces, and bowls of candy.

President Larry Goodwin announces retirement as of June 2016

Dear Parent of a St. Scholastica student,

This week, I announced my retirement, effective at the end of June 2016.  That month I will turn 70 and I will have been president of St. Scholastica for eighteen years.  Working at this special College has been the greatest calling of my life, and I will miss it dearly.  But it will be time to bring in new leadership with ideas and energy to help write the next chapter of the St. Scholastica story.

Thank you for entrusting your daughter or son to the College.  You can be sure that we will continue to work hard to offer her or him the transformative possibility of Catholic Benedictine learning.

The Board of Trustees has selected the national consulting firm Academic Search to help with the search for the next president. Check our website, css.edu/search, for updates in months to come. Meanwhile, I remain at your service for another year. 

Thank you for your belief in St. Scholastica’s mission, and I wish you and your student all the best.


Larry Goodwin
