Winter Break in Pictures

by Courtney January 19, 2014

It’s hard to believe that the holiday season came and went so quickly. It’s even harder to imagine that I’m finally back in school working through my final semester of my undergraduate education. Before we jump right in to the semester, though, I’d like to share some of my favorite photographical memories from this past [...]

7/8 of the Way There

by Courtney December 17, 2013

The grades are now all in. The semester is officially over. And I have only one semester left at Fontbonne University. This semester was definitely different for me in many, many ways. First of all, I only had classes two days per week, and I spent the other days of the week interning in a [...]

And You Say I’m Not Competitive

by Courtney December 2, 2013

I’m not athletic. I don’t relish in the idea of a trophy room. I’d rather see everyone who sincerely tries succeed instead of seeing the same few people being successful all of the time. However, all of that being said, I’m definitely excited to have taken home first place from my microbiology lab’s first Thanksgiving [...]

My Favorite Things

by Courtney November 24, 2013

I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m not a big “Sound of Music” fan. It’s a classic – don’t get me wrong – but it’s just a little too “overdone” for me. However, with Thanksgiving upon us, I’d like to talk about a few of my favorite little things in life that simply [...]

But Where Will I Blog?!

by Courtney November 16, 2013

I’ve been preparing for my May graduation in various ways. I’ve applied for grad schools all over. I’ve really considered what I want to do with my life. I’ve been tutoring biology at school a ton, and I’ve been interning off campus in a lab all while taking 18 credit hours in order to prepare [...]

One Month

by Courtney November 15, 2013

We basically have a month until exams are over, thereby indicating the end of the fall 2013 semester and the beginning of Christmas break. What’s weird is that Halloween, my favorite holiday of the year, was just over two weeks ago! Earlier today, my mom and I went shopping at Gravois Bluffs, a nice complex [...]

I’m a Poet

by Courtney November 10, 2013

Last week, while I was looking online for some microbiology information, I saw a blog-style article. Being interested, I clicked on the link to open the article and began reading. I’m a very opinionated person myself, and I respect others’ viewpoints so long as they have backing for those viewpoints, but I definitely didn’t like [...]

Try, Try, Try…

by Courtney October 27, 2013

All of my friends know that I absolutely adore music and theatre. (Hence the reason I’m pursuing a theatre minor here at Fontbonne!) However, recently, I’ve become pretty tired of mainstream music. Don’t get me wrong – songs like Katy Perry’s “Roar” and The Wanted’s “Glad You Came” are catchy, but they don’t have a [...]

SAVE DUMBO! In Pictures

by Courtney October 27, 2013

As you may have read in one of my previous blogs, the Biological Sciences Organization, or BSO, recently sponsored a SAVE DUMBO! campaign. The BSO purchased eco-friendly, made-in-the-US wristbands that proudly exclaimed, “Save Dumbo! Fontbonne Sustainability.” At least half of the proceeds from the wristband and corresponding bake sale will be donated to a reputable [...]

The Cellular Model of Saint Louis

by Courtney October 19, 2013

Back in high school, about a year before I had this huge revelation that I was meant to major in biology instead of in English and communications in college, I had an awesome biology teacher who gave us various fun assignments that were meant to help us figure out major concepts. One such assignment was [...]
