I am going to do something completely different, I am answering some questions for you all.
Q: What do you wish you knew before you came to Fontbonne?
A: That it is kind of cliquey with a few groups, but there are people here who make you feel welcomed and a part of the community. A major thing for me is to not stress out over anything — just ask for help.
Q: What info would help incoming students make their most of their time here?
A: Being involved in clubs like Residential Hall Association can help you get to know the people on your floor.
Q: What might students from other schools be surprised to hear about Fontbonne?
A: You won’t get lost in the shuffle among other students, and the teachers really do care about you. They will do everything within their power to help you succeed.
“What classes are you taking next semester?” I am starting to hear that more and more. It is weird for me not to have any classes next semester due to finishing up this semester. So much is happening to me both in school and outside of school. Becoming the President of the Residential Hall Association and finishing up in December are just a few of the school changes. I get to drive again on the 19th of this month since I didn’t have anymore seizures, and I am adopting a dog. I wouldn’t be where I am at without Fontbonne. This place and the people here helped me succeed in life.
I never really thought about why I changed to professional writing. I used to want to become a teacher, then it became too stressful. I have always enjoyed writing, mainly poetry and creative writing.The writing classes here have helped make my writing better. Dr. Sommer keeps asking me to put more detail in my writings so much, but I know that he wants me to succeed at writing. I am always writing something, from poetry, short stories, and journaling in general. Last semester, I wrote a short story for a class and one classmate asked if we wanted them published. So I am a published writer.
