Three Day Weekends

by Alumni Posts March 9, 2015

In three days, I’ve been able to emerge from my shell of my residence hall and venture into the artistic delights of St. Louis. On Friday, March 6th, on a whim, I was driving back to campus when I suddenly decided I should pop by the St. Louis Art Museum. After all, on Fridays, they […]

Senior Snow Days

by Alumni Posts February 24, 2015

This being my last semester at Fontbonne, what I wanted most this spring 2015 was some winter weather. A fairly mild winter had left me missing last year’s snow storm. With snow in the forecast, I kept my fingers crossed all of Sunday. Working full time in retail eats up all of my weekends, so […]

Taking Data

by Alumni Posts February 23, 2015

As a speech-pathology major, one of my profession’s greatest concerns is keeping track. By keeping track, we have the evidence we need to judge our work, to backtrack, or move forward, with different strategies, all to achieve a goal. For many speech-pathology majors, or any major that requires taking data, it is difficult to keep track […]

I just got back from a conference in Minneapolis called NACA (National Association for Campus Activities). I attended this last year as well in Boston and have been looking forward to it again ever since then. This is a conference in which there are a variety of teaser shows and market places in which you […]

Wacky Warhol Display

by Alumni Posts February 23, 2015

This semester, I am enrolled in an independent study visual merchandising class. This is the first time I have taken an independent study, so it is a very different structure to get used to. Everything is done on my own time, yet I still have to communicate with my classmates because we are completing displays […]

Fried Green Tomatoes

by Alumni Posts February 12, 2015

It’s been a while since I’ve last blogged, but since it’s my last semester, I hope you will indulge me as I prepare for the next step. Yes, I am graduating in May! It seems very surreal, but so does the rest of my life. After all, I am grateful that I was able to […]

Personal Touches

by Alumni Posts February 12, 2015

Fontbonne University has been the place I’ve called home for nearly three and a half years. I came here as first year freshman, and occupied one of the 350 beds on campus. I’ve lived in St. Joesph Hall, more frequently and fondly called “The Joe”, and Medaille Hall, my current residence hall. Most people whine […]

The Last Hoorah

by Alumni Posts February 10, 2015

Spring 2015. My last semester here at Fontbonne. It’s a strange feeling, and I knew this was coming all along, but somehow I can’t quite believe it. I don’t want to believe it. I think I’ve taken this semester as an opportunity to pack in everything I think I need to accomplish before graduation. This […]

The Leadership Life

by Alumni Posts February 9, 2015

Over the weekend, I participated in what is known as the Leadership and Service Academy. This was a leadership conference for St. Louis area schools, and was hosted at McKendree University in Lebanon, Illinois. The day started with a motivational speaker, and then everyone broke off into groups to attend various seminars relating to different […]

In order to be eligible to join, a student must be at least junior status, in the top third of his/her class […]
