Girl Power.

by Carly February 21, 2014

This week I began a new adventure serving as an Assistant Coach for the Girls on the Run program! A few weeks ago, when I got my curriculum binder that details all of the lessons that we cover during each practice, it made me realize something: if Girls on the Run is a program that [...]

“…for this thing we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down.”

by Lauren February 19, 2014

I have become quite seasoned at this whole college thing.  A lot of what I have learned about being successful in college has been through trial and error.  When I first started college, I took as many credit hours as I could, sometimes 18 at a time.  For some majors this is the norm; however, [...]

“Hindsight is Vibrant, Reality: Rarely Lit”

by Marielle February 18, 2014

So maybe you think that since I’m a senior, with almost 4 years of college life behind me, I have it all figured out. Not really. I’m just making it up as I go. But I can offer some advice based on my past experiences, good and bad.  All things considered, looking back now – [...]

What Saved Me In College

by Corie February 17, 2014

For college there are two things I recommend getting besides the obvious textbooks. That is a planner and a flash drive. These two things will save your life in college. The planner kept me organized and reminded me of what I had to do each day and when assignments were due. I like to be [...]

A Love Letter to Chemistry.

by Carly February 14, 2014

On Monday I had the pleasure of turning my hands blue (Okay, this is totally an exaggeration, but still.). Also on Monday, I had the real pleasure of calculating my engineering physics grade after receiving my very first graded physics exam. Then Wednesday I spent 3 hours with the engineering physics tutor, before going to [...]

I believe that connecting with the teachers and doing your homework ahead of time is the most important thing that you can do to be on top of your grades in college. Connecting with your teacher can create many advantages during your college years. Connections make it easier for you too learn because you will [...]

Addiction: Spotify

by Corie February 5, 2014

Spotify is for sure my new addiction in life. Thanks to my best friend Erica. I use to be a loyal Pandora user, but I found my love elsewhere. Spotify is just perfect; it fits everyone’s music needs. I have multiple playlists. Anything from Frank Sinatra to System of a Down. Some of my playlists [...]

Love Nest in AB

by Carlyn February 5, 2014

Last semester I was in a visual merchandising class. Throughout the semester, the entire class was in charge of building the window displays in Anheuser-Busch (AB) Hall (there are three different ones). It was a lot of fun to come up with a creative idea, and then see that image come to life. I didn’t [...]

Semester Goals

by Kristen February 5, 2014

Happy snow day, Fontbonne!  Campus is closed for the rest of the day because of the weather, which is turning the outdoors into a white smudge on the map of the Midwest.   Without classes, work, or the ability to drive safely tonight, I thought I’d use my free time to catch up on blogging.  Sadly, [...]

Best Song Ever

by Marielle February 4, 2014

I can say pretty seriously that I don’t know how I’d get through life if I didn’t have music.  I listen to anything and everything – classic rock, pop punk, top 40, country, electronic, indie, rap – I particularly like songs I can dance to, because dancing is another important part of my life.  I [...]
