WHAT MAJOR IS RIGHT FOR ME?!?!?!

by Alumni Posts February 16, 2012

First off, let me say that my major is the main reason I chose Fontbonne Universty. I am majoring in speech-language pathology, and I know that Fontbonne has one of the best programs around! But, you may ask, how did you decide on majoring in speech-language pathology? Well, first of all, my brother is currently [...]

After my senior year of high school, I was a little lost on where I wanted to go for college. I knew that I wanted to study art but I hadn’t found a place that felt right. My high school art teacher recommended me for a summer art camp hosted at Fontbonne University. I hadn’t [...]

Why did I choose Fontbonne? Well that’s easy!

by Alumni Posts February 7, 2012

Fontbonne is perfect for me because it is a small, friendly campus. I have attended Catholic schools my whole life, and I figured that attending a Catholic college would be a great way to continue my education. The grade school and high school that I attended were both very small, so I knew that going [...]

My Final Blog

by Alumni Posts December 5, 2011

So… this is it. I’m done with classes. I have one more brief paper to write and hand off, and I’m done. Less than two weeks from now, I’ll walk the stage, dressed in a gown I’ll wear one time ever. Frankly? It’s anti-climactic. There’s not some big banner I run through at the finish [...]

Who Are You?

by Alumni Posts November 28, 2011

Heads up: this is one of those longer blogs. If you choose to read it, I’m sorry and you’re welcome. Last week, I had an interview with an advertising agency I really, really like for a number of reasons. I won’t say much more about them beyond that, especially since if you Google my name [...]

Thanksgiving Travels and Plans

by Alumni Posts November 28, 2011

I got up at 4 a.m. to take Brad Soble to the airport for his 6 a.m. flight. Why is he leaving so early? Frankly, I have no idea, but that’s beside the point. I too am leaving today for upstate New York, around 2 p.m. This is a pretty great week – there’s nothing [...]

The Future Soon

by Alumni Posts November 15, 2011

I recognize the recurring theme of graduation in my posts. Bear with me, here – the reality of the situation hasn’t completely set in, so I think about it often. As I get closer to graduation, I’m starting to think about what I’m going to miss. Odds are, I’ll move away from St. Louis. But… [...]

Can never be thankful enough!
