A mom’s advice on eating well in college

Among the many college stereotypes, a diet of pizza, potato chips, and ramen always seem to be present. Around 75% of St. Kate’s students around campus said that they ate better at home than they did while at school. Since Spring Break just passed St. Kate’s, many students had an opportunity to go home and visit family, myself included, so I took the opportunity to see what a mother’s advice is on eating healthy while at school.

Katies react to the current Presidential Administration

On a campus that is politically active, election season had tensions high for students at St. Kate’s. Some were happy, while others did not receive the outcome they’d been hoping for. The change of politics from the Obama Administration to the Trump Administration raises concerns for many students, and after an evening at the Pulse, I caught up with some Katies to see what their opinions were about the current policies.  

Sophie Everetts, ’18, Communication studies major, considers herself to be a liberal and is not happy with the outcome of the election. Among her many concerns, she says that “environmental things are really important to me,” and that she has issues with the progression of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) despite the protests against construction.

St. Kate’s students offer advice on where to hang out off campus

On such a small campus, it’s not surprising that Katies need to get away every now and again. St. Kate’s students have an advantage; with the Twin Cities at their fingertips, it’s hard to decide where to begin their off-campus adventures. I sat down with Sylvia Vandenberg-Daves, ’18, who is an English and Women’s Studies major, and Shelby Batterson, ’18, who is a Political Science major, to see what they like to do in their free time. Vandenberg-Daves became well-acquainted with the public transportation system in the Twin Cities after a semester of three classes, two of which being the 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. classes.
