Meet Our NSR Student Editors – Henry Sluka, Social Media Editor — The North Star Reports – Sponsored by The College of St. Scholastica and The Middle Ground Journal
Henry Sluka, NSR Social Media Editor. I am a double major Biology and Philosophy. Physical Therapy intended. I am currently an undergraduate student attending the college of St. Scholastica and will graduate spring of 2017. I began my volunteer experience with NSR and the MGJ during my sophomore year, fall of 2013.
I was born and raised in Duluth, MN. Throughout my life, schooling has always been a passion of mine. Whether I am taking core science classes or upper-division philosophy courses, my fascination is always peeked. I am also an Anatomy Teaching Assistant in the Cadaver lab. I aid over 200 students in learning muscular, skeletal, organ, and vasculature systems. Outside of schooling I am apart of multiple clubs on campus. I participate in Outdoor Pursuit, Students Today Leaders Forever, the Philosophy Club, and was a Delta Team leader. As for my hobbies: I exercise daily, volunteer at a Physical Therapy Clinic, climb at the campus rock wall, and spend time with friends. After my undergraduate studies I will be applying to Physical Therapy graduate school for a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. My goal is to practice Physical Therapy for a handful of years and then go back to receive my Ph.D.
I started to volunteer for the MGJ and NSR because I was inspired by the purpose of each group. I wanted to be apart of a community that brought intellectual and anecdotal news to the people regarding large educational concepts. I want to be able to show people that even in very small conversations and encounters there can be a lot to learn. To push people to ask questions, to critically think about, and reflect on their life history and other people as well. This process allows me the opportunity to grow as an academic. I will be able to critically think/analyze better and I will become more informed about cultures and societies in the world. I also hope to connect with the people more and have educational discussions with them.

The North Star Reports: Global Citizenship and Digital Literacy, The College of St. Scholastica and the scholarly Middle Ground Journal’s online learning community and outreach program with undergraduate and K-12 classes around the world. The North Star Reports has flourished since 2012. For a brief summary, please see the American Historical Association’s Perspectives on History, at:
The North Star Reports publishes edited essays from our students, particularly from those who are currently stationed, or will soon be stationed abroad. Students have reported from Mongolia, Southern China, Shanghai, northeastern China, The Netherlands, Tanzania, Ireland, England, Finland, Russia, and Haiti. We also have students developing reviews of books, documentaries, and films, and analysis of current events from around the world. We will post their dispatches, and report on their interactions with the North Star Reports students and teachers. We thank The Department of History and Politics and the School of Arts and Letters of The College of St. Scholastica for their generous financial support for The North Star Reports and The Middle Ground Journal.
