by Carly March 7, 2014

Tuesday night as I was at the checkout counter at Whole Foods, the cashier asked me if I had any exciting plans for the rest of the evening. Naturally, I did: “Meh, just a ton of homework,” I complained. “Oh yeah, it’s getting to be about midterm-time, isn’t it?” said he. Indeed. It. Is. The [...]

Choosing My Major, My Way of Life

by Courtney March 3, 2014

I just about shocked everyone when I, as a junior in high school taking excess honors and college credit English and Spanish courses, said that I was going to major in biology. A few people laughed. A few people thought I was crazy. And some thought I’d never make it through. And now, it’s just [...]

It chose me

by Marki March 3, 2014

“Why did you chose Fashion Merchandising, why did you chose theater?” Questions I hear quite frequently from people wanting to know the reason behind my two very creative major choices. Well personally I’d like to think that my  majors chose me. I say this because since I was a small child these two things just [...]

Why Speech Path?

by Sarah March 3, 2014

For me, Speech-Language Pathology (SLP)  just made sense.  In high school I had been looking into majoring in something in the category of the medical field.  But I didn’t want to be a doctor or a nurse.  For a while I was thinking of going into Physical Therapy but that just didn’t seem quite right [...]

Choosing my Major

by Deanna February 26, 2014

I always remember sitting in my classes the first day of class, and observing the type of decorating and arrangement of the classroom my teachers had done, but especially thinking of all the different things I would have done if it were my classroom. The most vivid time I recall doing this is my first [...]

Well, I Guess This is Growing Up

by Marielle February 25, 2014

This week, instead of looking back on my storied college career, I’ll be looking forward to the future. As you might know, I have been a dietetics major since first setting foot on the Fontbonne campus, and I’ve never once wanted to deviate from that path.  Although most people have a general concept of what [...]

Just Now Realizing this….

by Tim February 24, 2014

Life is tough for people, like me, who are left handed. Growing up, all the desks I sat in were right handed. I did get lucky and had a left handed desk every now and then. When I started community college, my mind was set on tables not desks being used. Guess what I saw….desks. [...]
