St. Scholastica's August Adventures are opportunities for like-minded students to gather before the start of the school year and have an adventure together. Meet some new friends, have a great time and get ready for the start of your college experience. Plus, you get to move in early!
Benedictine Values in Action
Service is one of the Benedictine values at the heart of an education at The College of St. Scholastica. Community Service Orientation (CSO) is an excellent introduction to that spirit of service. The Benedictine value of Community teaches us that great good comes from helping others in need. CSO is the perfect opportunity to serve the local community, learn about various social issues, build community, develop new friends, and also HAVE FUN! Participants move in about a week before classes start and spend time getting to know each other and the community through service and social justice activities.

"MLO changed my entire college experience. It helped open my mind to a variety of social justice issues and taught me how to be an ally and a leader. MLO kicked off my first year of college in an amazing way. I made so many new friendships and created memories that will last a lifetime."
