Fontbonne’s mission statement is ” a Catholic institution sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, is committed to the common good through the daily pursuit of transformative education, inspiring students to become global citizens who think critically, act ethically and serve responsibly.
Being educated is important because it teaches you to think critically and help you organize your thoughts . This mission statement encourages students to be open minded. We fulfill this mission through great respect for different religions. Last week we had hijab day. People tried on scarves and took pictures. There are several opportunities to try ethnic foods and we offer a world religion class. Throughout my college career I have been exposed to many religions.
