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!

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!

Hello everyone! Can you believe we are less than 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving? That means that Thanksgiving Break is coming up, then Finals, and then Christmas Break!! Since we have so little time left in the semester, we need to stay focused and finish strong!!

So what did I wish I knew about living on campus before I moved in? Well my first semester of my freshman year, I lived with someone who I went to high school with. Let me tell you that didn’t last long… but second semester came around and then I moved in with someone I consider to this day to still be one of my closest friends. So, oh well about my first roommate.

But I had/have A TON of stuff in my room because, let’s face it, we all like to live comfortably. Sometimes I wish I had moved in with less when I first started living on campus, but there’s nothing we can do  about it now!!!

Some tips for future residents:

  • keep your doors open!
  • smile/acknowledge anyone on campus
  • GET INVOLVED!!
  • room darkening curtains (these were particularly a life saver for me because of the sun rising before class!)
  • half of the stuff you have on your “to bring list” won’t EVER be used (so be cautious)
  • let your room/side of the room express who you truly are
  • TIME MANAGEMENT
  • use the campus resources (library, workout room, tutoring/kinkel center)
  • get to know the faculty/staff/security because it will most definitely help you in the long run when you need any form of help
  • get to know your roommate because sharing a room with someone you don’t like/don’t talk to will be hard to live with!!
  • be prepared for this lifestyle to be much different from the one that you had back in high school

thank you so much for reading!

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 […]

My Favorite Teacher

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 […]

MVP: The Most Valuable Professor

by Yuri October 18, 2016

Where do I start with this post – Most Influential Professor. Even though I’m still a Junior and haven’t graduated from Fontbonne yet, it would be difficult for me to pick a professor that has influenced me to: Learn More. Be More. IF I had to choose as of this moment, I would have to […]
