Mid-Life College Crisis

by Sarah May 4, 2015

Last year, as a freshman I would hear professors tell me that it is common for people to switch majors in life at least once. I had not really believed my professors, in addition to my family members until that happened to me. When I started my college career I thought for sure that I […]

Are you taking classes over this summer? A lot of students wonder if and how that would benefit them. I say if you have the option to take some of your required classes over the summer, do it! I took two courses last summer, both of which were online. I recommend it! There are a […]

Underwater World

by Alumni Posts April 22, 2015

Let me take you under the sea. That was the inspiration for my most recent (and last) window display in my independent study visual merchandising class. Erika Kuhn and I worked together on this one on the smaller window (you may remember me posting about the bigger one earlier in the semester). We work together […]

A Surprising Lesson This Semester

When I began my first semester here at Fontbonne this spring I knew that I was going to learn a lot. With three studio art classes and one modern art history class, how could I not? The thing that surprised me the most was how much I’ve learned in my modern art history class. In […]

What I Learned at Fontbonne

by Patricia April 21, 2015

The most meaningful thing I will take away from Fontbonne is that the more effort you put in, the greater the reward you will get. I first heard this when a counselor said this at freshman orientation. I have found it to be true for academics and friendships. The more you study, the better grades […]

Forever Purple and Gold

by Alumni Posts April 20, 2015

It is truly hard to believe how fast the year is winding down. The number of student organization events, class assignments, and final projects is getting lower and lower. It is a very bittersweet feeling. I feel good knowing that I have accomplished so much in the past four years of college. But it is […]
