Academics

Next week is Finals week. My Junior year so far has been filled with many highpoints and some low points. But overall, I would have to say that it was pretty successful! Academically, I am doing well; and organizationally I am excited to see what 2nd semester brings! We will be traveling to Chicago again for the 2017 Enactus Regional Conference and presenting our efforts with the Criminal Justice Ministry (CJM). Hopefully, we will advance to Kansas City for the 2017 National Conference! Even though I am practically half way done with my Junior year, I still cannot believe that I am HALF WAY done with JUNIOR year! It is crazy! Second semester will fly by!
As for what my plans are for Winter Break: Regain lost hours of sleep, visit family, & work on a project that is currently in development with a Fortune 500 company. I cannot disclose anything beyond that just yet.  Until next year guys, stay classy!

By now, you are realizing that this is the last full week of classes! With as exciting as this is we still have finals week the following week.  As scary as this sounds, here are some tips to make it not seem so horrifying:

  1. Take breaks between studying.  Study for a couple hours then stop and give your brain a break by watching an episode of your favorite TV show on Netflix.  Just make sure to not watch the whole season 😉
  2. Exercise!  Going on a short walk, run, or bike ride will clear your head and give you fresh air and Vitamin D.
  3. Find a study group! Getting together with people in your class to study, will help motivate you to study and bounce ideas back and forth.
  4. Breathe!! In the end, give it your best shot and try your best.  No matter what happens just know you did the best you could!

In less than a week, it will be Thanksgiving! Where did the year go? Even though some of us live a fast-paced life, let’s take a minute to stop and reflect on what we are thankful for. Personally for me, there are several things. First and foremost, health. I am fortunate enough to wake up every morning and know that I am in good health – and I do not take that for granted. I know that there are people in the world that are less fortunate than I am in this regard. Second, the people around me. I have associated myself with some great people; some I communicate with on a daily basis, and others, I have not spoken with in years. Fantastic people none the less. Next, there is the education that I am receiving. I am glad that I have chosen Fontbonne to continue my education. Not only that, but also receive a generous scholarship this semester. Keep in mind, no matter if life is or is not going according to plan, there is always something that everyone is grateful for. Until next time, stay classy!

It’s 7:30 AM. Wake up, get ready for the day, and walk out the door by 8:45 AM (regardless of what time my class starts: 9:30 or 10). Here is the reason why – TRAFFIC! For those that live on campus, it is a luxury that the campus is small. You have the ability to wake up 5-10 minutes before class. That is plenty of time for you. Us commuters…not so much. You see, it is 8:45 AM., people are on their way to work (which also happens to commence at 9 or 9:30 AM).

PSA to ALL COMMUTERS:

  1. AVOID 8 AM CLASSES AT ALL COSTS (if you can). Trust me, you think it is dreadful now, wait until 8 AM in the Winter. The roads will be in somewhat decent condition to drive in (if at all). If not, I am 100% certain that you will be late.
  2. If you plan to park your car on campus, GET TO CAMPUS EARLY! Parking spots are all filled by about 8:45 AM. Yes, the university constructed a second lot due to this issue, but the walk that you have to make is especially inconvenient if you are running late.
  3. Carpool with friends if you can.
  4. When you pull into the campus lot (oval lot between AB Hall, Ryan, Medaille, and the Fine Arts Building) – Always turn right and go around. I’ve seen people from time to time either turn left or people just driving on the opposite side of the lot. Do Not Do This.

Until next time guys, stay classy!

It’s Game Time!

by Yuri November 7, 2016

Even though I’ve played sports all my life with friends, I didn’t “officially” play a sport until high school. My sport was football. But the sport that you play doesn’t matter unless you have a great selection of music to accompany it. And naturally when you play football, you listen to Hip Hop/Rap and Hard Rock […]

The Final Countdown

by Yuri November 2, 2016

We are almost done with week 12 of classes. Is it just me or was August 15th just last week? It’s hard to believe that we are about a month away from Winter break. Once Thanksgiving Break comes around, we will automatically shift into Finals Mode and the semester is practically over. For me, that […]

#WeAreGriffinNation

by Yuri October 25, 2016

We Are Griffin Nation. Four little words that mean everything. To me, Griffin Nation is not just a symbol of our mascot. When it comes to this phrase: Fontbonne inspires me to…” It is a simple phrase but how do I answer it? I would have to say “Fontbonne inspires be to go out and do things that […]

by Mari October 19, 2016

One of my fondest memories of high school is having my favorite teacher Mrs. Cascone as my teacher and counselor. I first met Mrs. Cascone during my sophomore year, she was my English teacher. Not only did I improve my English skills that year, I opened myself up to her and her impactful advice as […]

Hello again everyone! This week I’m going to write about one of my favorite teachers during my time here at Fontbonne: Julie Portman.
