I love it when hard work pays off.

by Erica February 4, 2013

Wow. I’m speechless right now thinking about the fact that I’m already a SENIOR in college in my last semester of undergraduate school. I also can’t believe how quickly time has zoomed by! For example, I remember when my fellow Fontbonne friend Lara and I had just decided that we wanted to have a Benefit [...]

I like too many things at Fontbonne.

by Erica October 12, 2012

The great thing about Fontbonne is that there are so many wonderful extracurricular opportunities offered here, you just have to open up your eyes and inquire about them. If you have room in your academic schedule, there is even room to learn about other fields. For example, I might be a Speech-Language Pathology major, but [...]

I love dancing!

by Erica October 1, 2012

A hobby that I’ve had since I was a wee little one is dancing. When I was in grade school, I even danced competitively. However, in high school I had to stop competing, but I was still able to dance in my high school’s dance program. When I was originally deciding on colleges to apply [...]

So I apparently won the Lip Sync contest and a $200 shopping spree…

by Erica September 25, 2012

Hello, Readers! An exciting development in my life this past weekend was winning the Lip Sync contest with my friend Claire, and Katie (Claire’s roommate/a friend who I just met by doing Lip Sync). (Getting involved on campus brings people together.) We did a lip sync performance to the “Gangnam Style” song by PSY (a [...]

Food, Fun, and Festivals!

by Erica September 17, 2012

Something that I have come to love about Fontbonne is its Dedicated Semester every Fall Semester. The Dedicated Semester is something fairly unique to Fontbonne and features a broad topic that gives the Fontbonne Community a chance to learn about and discuss the topic through various classes, activities, and events. This year’s Dedicated Semester is [...]

It’s go time!

by Erica September 9, 2012

Hello, Fontbonne Blog Readers! I seriously can’t believe that it’s my Senior year at Fontbonne already. It feels like just yesterday that I was writing my first blog on here. It’s been nearly 3 weeks since the first day of classes started, and I already feel like I’ve been here for months! I’m still just [...]

How I Ended Up a Speech Language Pathology Major

by Erica March 22, 2012

I want to first begin this blog by saying that this post is long overdue. It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged on here…busy schedules and the hustle and bustle of college life can take over. However, it’s nice to be blogging again. It also helps that Spring Break has already begun! Now, to explain how [...]

My Most Challenging Class This Semester Isn’t Even a Class

by Erica October 12, 2011

Hello to everyone reading this blog! This is my first blog for this semester and there is good reason for why that is. Let’s just say that I’m SUPER involved here at Fontbonne and keeping up with everything can be quite challenging. Don’t get me wrong though, school is challenging enough, and as a Speech-Language [...]

I didn’t choose Fontbonne; Fontbonne chose me.

by Erica March 7, 2011

The story of how I got to Fontbonne is an interesting one. I’m still not completely sure of how I got here, but I’ll do my best to explain my story. It all started with my love for music and the Fontbonne Communications and Marketing Department. I come from the Western Suburbs of Chicago and [...]

A Weekend at No Frills 2011!

by Erica March 1, 2011

I recently went to an RHA (Residence Hall Association) conference called No Frills. It can be difficult to describe what it is to someone who has never been to such a conference. I would say that it is similar to the MACURH Conference, which can somewhat be explained in my previous blog post if you [...]
