Friday at the St. Louis Art Museum

by Alumni Posts February 27, 2012

One of the greatest things about St. Louis, in my opinion, is the St. Louis Art Museum (SLAM). The museum is free to the public and hosts a great collection of paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and sculptures. I go there quite a bit since it is located in Forest Park which is right by Fontbonne! […]

Summer So Soon

by Alumni Posts February 24, 2012

It kind of creeps me out how close summer really is when you sit down and think about it.  We are just a mere 16 school days until spring break, and Fontbonne’s summer class schedules are already out.  (By the way, kudos to whoever designed the covers - I was talking to some friends about the […]

What College Has to Offer

by Conner February 24, 2012

There may come a time when I ask myself, “Why am I here?” Not here on Earth specifically, but here at Fontbonne University. The answer to that question is simple.

Sometimes I Feel Like I Don’t Know the Deal.

Last weekend I snapped and decided I didn’t feel like doing homework every waking minute. So I didn’t. And so, because of this, I’m going to make this blog very brief. As in, one paragraph brief, […]

The Value of My College Education

by Alumni Posts February 24, 2012

It’s hard to place a monetary value on my college education. Education holds the keys to wealth, and not just monetary gains, but socially, emotionally and morally.  An education opens your eyes to so many things in your environment. For me, an education helps my observation skills, and I choose to pay attention to things […]

Spring is just around the corner.

by Alumni Posts February 24, 2012

I don’t have a car on campus, so I mostly walk everywhere. I was out walking today because I was going to meet friend at the Einstein Bagels on Clayton and loved how wonderful the weather was! I know that it’s supposed to get colder tomorrow, but today was just a friendly reminder that spring […]

Family > Money

by Alumni Posts February 23, 2012

So Lent is here, and today I had time to reflect. The past week or so, I feel like I have been in fast forward, with basketball ending and my classes picking up with assignments and tests, there seems to be fewer hours in every day. As I sat in church, all I could think […]

Faith and Sacrifice

by Alumni Posts February 22, 2012

Today I’m bubbling over with emotions. I recently went through surgery and have been busy trying to recover from it and have had many complications plague this process. I got a call from my adviser about my classes and she told me that one of professors is concerned about my schoolwork and the ability to […]

It’s that time of year again! Our Women’s basketball team has made it to the conference tournament. We got the third seed in the tournament, facing us up against Eureka College on Friday night. It has been a long season full of hard work. I am so glad it paid off! I love playing with […]
