In all honesty I was scared to come to Fontbonne. Don’t get me wrong I was really excited too, but also scared. I was coming from a town in central Illinois that is significantly smaller then St. Louis. My friends were all going to colleges where at least one if not more people from my [...]

A Book Review: The Wettest County in the World

by Joe Hooker September 24, 2013

Worth Every Penny

by Courtney September 24, 2013

I’m not going to lie – whenever I purchase greeting cards, I usually look for the value cards. After all, it’s the thought that counts, right?!
