It’s important to stay active in the campus community while you’re at Fontbonne. Fontbonne is a small university, but it has a lot to offer, I promise!
I joined the Student Association of Family and Consumer Sciences immediately when I transferred to Fontbonne and got to know more about what student organizations can do for the community. SAFCS focuses on helping the dear neighbor and as a group, we love to get involved in the community, including monthly events like cooking casseroles for the St. Patrick Center in St. Louis. One of my favorite volunteer events I did with SAFCS was on Fontbonne Day at Equine Assisted Therapy bathing horses and volunteering our help for the day. SAFCS has a lot of events going on this semester including a Farmer’s Market Tour in Soulard, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk, and more.
Feel free to contact me if you would like more information on SAFCS. Here is a peek into what’s going on in SAFCS in October:
