College “Needs”

by Kristen November 14, 2013

As a high school student, I began preparing for my move to college very early. Like, a-year-in-advance-making-grocery-lists kind of early.  Now that I’ve been at school for a few years, I have determined which of my possessions are most vital to my existence as a college student.  If you are reading this post, and you […]

by Kristen October 15, 2013

This is going to be one of those “propaganda” posts for a Fontbonne activity (consider yourself warned).  But it won’t be painful, I promise! I want to tell you a little bit about NSSLHA.
