This year I embarked on one of the most amazing Spring Break adventure of my entire life.  Though the adventure was full of ups and downs, I wouldn’t have traded anything.  My best friend, Brooke, and I went to three different Charlie Puth shows in a week.  We started with driving four hours to New Albany, IN to visit our friend Jessica.  We spent the night and were able to spend most of the day exploring New Albany.  That evening we traveled to Louisville (about a half hour) to our Air BnB (a website where you can rent someone’s apartment for a short period of time).  Then we made our way to the Louisville show; mind you, we were a few minutes later than what we were supposed to be.  We got all the things and were immediately taken down to Charlie’s dressing room.  It was such a cool experience to walk in to a room and see Charlie sitting casually in a chair. He sang One Call Away in a lower tone to warm up his voice. We got to take a selfie and then stood in line for about two hours after all of that.  We made friends with security and built a relationship with his tour manager.

The Louisville show was amazing and the next morning we were off to Hamilton Ohio.  In Hamilton we got to hangout with Brooke’s family for the day and had such a good time.

The next day we were off to Columbus to see our next show.  On the way to Columbus we noticed a weird smoke coming from my car; we thought this was dust since we were in a construction zone.  Once we realized it was smoke my RPMs starting raving and we had to pull over on the left side of the highway (because we were in the fast lane).  It was approximately 40 degrees outside and we were stuck 6 hours away from our parents.  We didn’t know what to do.

I met some pretty amazing people that day, got to ride in the back of a cop car, connected with Charlie’s tour manager again and got to go on the tour bus to meet Charlie for a second time.  Needless to say, the show was still amazing!

My car was finally fixed and we were celebrating with an Easter egg hunt with Brooke’s family.  Then we were off to our third and final show with two new recruits (Brooke’s cousins).  We managed to get them VIP tickets as well so that they could stand by us.  This time when Johnathan (Charlie’s manager) saw us, we had a greeting of “Friends”.  We were put back into the front row for our final show and it was such an amazing experience.

I couldn’t have asked for a better adventure for my last #FBUSpringBreak.  Check out the video of our adventure below.

I got involved my freshman year at Fontbonne in the student government association.  I was lucky enough to be selected to serve on the executive board, which as a freshman doesn’t happen often.  I was so excited to assume my role as I had always wanted to be on student council in high school.  I hit the ground running and help the position of VP of Finance for 2 consecutive years.

Student Government Association (SGA) is a great organization on campus that is the voice for the entire student body.  I got to serve as a reference point between other organizations on campus and the general board of SGA.  I got to talk to many different students and keep track of a running budget.  This are great skills to have.  After my time as VP of Finance was coming to an end during my second year I chose to run for President of the organization.

Since then I have served in the roll of President.  It has been two years since then and I have grown so much as a person in that time.  Getting involved in an organization was the best decision I have ever made.  I have grown and thrived as a person since I have been involved.  I learned how to push out of my comfort zone and to care more about others than myself.

Everyone should get involved during their time at Fontbonne.  Whether it is in SGA, the activities board or even the service organizations on campus.

Being a Griffin is such an awesome experience.  And everyday is not quite like the other; you meet new friends, are constantly saying hi, and enjoying life and the beauty of campus.  To be a Griffin means to be able to stop and say hello to almost everyone on campus.  A normal day in my life as a Griffin consists of getting out of bed, getting dressed, going to class and being productive for the rest of the day.  Being a Griffin is unlike anything I have ever experienced and if I could do it all over again… I would.

I am a Senior in college…  I am graduating on May 9th…  Am I sad or happy?

All of these are things that I have had on my mind for the last few weeks.  As my time at Fontbonne comes to an end, it is time for me to reflect.

What have I done… What am I doing next… How do I connect the two?

I have donated so much time to the Fontbonne community, through being SGA president to Fontbonne Days for three years. There are so many out there that have still given so much more.  I loved my chapter at Fontbonne and it pains me that this time must come to a close.  I have grown so much as a person here from student government, professors, being a student intern, and even my academic courses.  I am a totally different person than the girl that walked on campus back in 2012.  I am attending Saint Louis University in the Fall to get my masters degree in Student Personnel Administration.  I am going to be in college for the rest of my life (that is what they tell me).  But I plan to have much more of an impact on others than what most people see.  I have always wanted to help people, to grow, to lead, to be more than what they dream they can be.  If it wasn’t for my time at Fontbonne, and those who have helped me grow, I would have never chosen this career for myself.

Who am I now… How is that going to help me… Am I really ready to “Adult”?

I am different, I have changed, I have grown.  I know that I am on the right path.  I have always been told that I can do anything I set my mind to; I believe that to this day.  I can do or be anything I want to be in this world.  I want to help students like myself realize that early; money is not everything in this world.  It does not matter how much money you make if you are in a job that you hate.  Live for what you believe in and do whatever you wish to do.  Someone along the line will support you, and help you to grow into the person that you need to be for the career.

Believe me, this is not the end… It is just a new chapter in the book of my life.  And I cannot wait to see how it reads.

If I could give any advice to the pre-Fontbonne me I would definitely tell her to not stress so much.  Understand that you cannot be in control of absolutely everything in life.  I would also tell myself that I was going to end up a planner and that was going to be tough for me […]

What Did I Want to Be?

by Alumni Posts May 3, 2016

When I was little I don’t even really remember what I wanted to be.  The last memory I have of wanting to be something was a teacher; that was when I was a freshman in high school.  I knew that I wanted to help kids learn; I liked the idea of teaching high school freshman […]

Getting the Job Done

Hey there Griffins! Okay, so I’m sure that all of us have a point in the semester where you’re just like blah, and you would rather draw tiny 3D cubes in the corner of your notes. If you’ve ever wondered how to stay focused on studying for that test or writing that paper, I have […]
