Last weekend I had the pleasure of enjoying the waterfront. It was a hazy day but it was sunny and warm enough to sit on the rocks near the lake and just soak in the sounds. I like to quietly observe nature, always have, and I could not help but to notice the red-winged blackbirds [...]

Come August 3rd, MSC students will not be receiving degrees from Northwestern University.
We will have earned them.
Although the Program is relatively short, it is not easy. In fact, its speed is one of the most significant challenges as we strive to glean everything we can from our courses while juggling work and family commitments. The [...]
Our Practicum requirement is to attend four out of six Saturday sessions. Even though it is challenging to carve two full days out of my schedule for classes on Practicum weeks, I plan to make them all.
So far, the extra effort has been more than worth it.
When reviewing the practicum topics, I chose to audit [...]

Fortunately, first quarter helped me become a better and more efficient student. My study skills are sharper. I’m now reading [...]
Seems wherever I go, my affiliations with Northwestern and the MSC Program are leading to new connections or renewing old ones. During our holiday party I reconnected with someone I had worked with almost 20 years ago. He graduated from the MSC Program in 2010 and now works for the University with one of my [...]
The MSC Program seems to have an accelerating affect on time. It’s hard to believe there are only three classes and a practicum left in this quarter. But it is not only the weeks that are flying by; it’s the days as well.
Saturday morning I left my house at 7:45 and it was not until [...]
One of the great things about being a part of the MSC program is that you get to go to school in Evanston. Why is Evanston great you may wonder? Well, dear reader, let me give you several reasons and some of my favorite places:
Northwestern’s campus- as someone who went to school in a very [...]
We are now a month into the MSC program and I feel like I am settling into the routine of being a student again. I do homework, I go to class and I eat delicious lunches at the Allen Center with my cohort. There are definitely things that feel reminiscent of college- the late nights, [...]
