“Why did you choose Fontbonne?” is a question I found myself getting asked quite often. Whether it’s family asking me or my classmates, my answer is usually the same. I say something along the lines of “I like the small community feel” or “I wanted a school with a small student to faculty ratio.” While those answers are true, they are just a few of the many reasons why I chose to make Fontbonne home for four years of my life. So naturally, I decided to make a list of some of the reasons why I chose Fontbonne!
- Fontbonne’s campus is in such a great area! We are about 20 minutes away from downtown St. Louis which houses Busch Stadium, the Scottrade Center, and the Edward Jones Dome. Not to mention a good number of local attractions are there too.
- Many of the professors have real life experience in their field! That means a lot of them have great networking connections that can get you internships! I got my first internship at an accounting firm by being introduced by one of my professors.
- You are encouraged to get involved! And when you finally do, it’s awesome! Fontbonne has a great number of clubs and organizations that you can invest your time and effort in that will benefit you in the long run.
- When I stepped on campus for the first time, it just felt like home to me. Simple as that.
