The great thing about Fontbonne University is that it provides the comfort and close-knit feeling of a small school but is placed amongst a busy and bustling city. The small size of Fontbonne allows for small staff to student ratios as well as a community that truly cares about what is best for you. At the same time, Fontbonne is merely fifteen minutes away from the historic and wonderful downtown St. Louis, which provides an abundant amount of fun things to do. Beyond things such as going to a Cardinals game at Busch Stadium and getting a tour of the Arch, downtown St. Louis has many concerts, plays, 5k runs, musicals, parades and many more. Just this past weekend, I went to the Little Big Town concert at the beautiful and classic Fox Theatre; only ten minutes away from Fontbonne. Fontbonne is unique in that it truly is a place that cares about the success of its students in the small-school setting while allowing the community to embrace the many opportunities and events of the city of St. Louis.
Here is a link of the events happening in St. Louis soon:
