Summer Get-A-Ways

by DeMarcus on July 5, 2016

in After College

While we haven’t quite reached the summer solstice just yet, some friends from Room 316 and I have started to plan for next summer. We were watching “Gossip Girl” season 2 when Blair was returning back home to the Hamptons with her new boyfriend, while Chuck Bass was waiting for her with a bouquet of flowers….that didn’t end so well, but anyway… that was when we all agreed that we should go to the Hamptons. Another friend suggested that we should Airbnb. Airbnb is this website that you can go and request to live in another person’s house while they are away on vacation. I then looked on the website to view the various homes that are located in the Hamptons. Some of the houses looked amazing from the outside but hideous on the inside. The houses that were outstanding both inside and out either cost too much or did not have adequate living space for seven people. In addition to that, the owners did not want parties inside their homes… like you live in a secluded area with no entertainment. Moving on, we scraped that idea, and I started to look at Miami.

Miami is way cheaper and affordable for freshly soon to be graduated college students. I believe we came to this conclusion because we were all watching “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and the episode that aired was Kourtney and Kim were going to Miami to expand their brand, DASH, a family owned store. This gave me such nostalgia because I remembered “Kourtney and Khloe take Miami”, which was the best spin-off ever created. As I searched Airbnb and so far found the perfect apartment that is both stylish and youthful. While I think every person who is a host on the website doesn’t want parties in their apartment/house, Marki reminded me that since we will be in Miami, we don’t need to stay in the apartment, which I totally agree.  We plan on driving to Miami and stay for about a week.

I am looking forward to what senior year has in store for but I am also excited for the fun plans that my friends and I are making to capitalize on successes that we have achieved here at Fontbonne and in our own personal lives. No matter where we go via Airbnb, we’ll make the most of our time together. Anywhere we go we bring the party, we bring the atmosphere, and we bring the attitude.

I am a Senior in college…  I am graduating on May 9th…  Am I sad or happy?

All of these are things that I have had on my mind for the last few weeks.  As my time at Fontbonne comes to an end, it is time for me to reflect.

What have I done… What am I doing next… How do I connect the two?

I have donated so much time to the Fontbonne community, through being SGA president to Fontbonne Days for three years. There are so many out there that have still given so much more.  I loved my chapter at Fontbonne and it pains me that this time must come to a close.  I have grown so much as a person here from student government, professors, being a student intern, and even my academic courses.  I am a totally different person than the girl that walked on campus back in 2012.  I am attending Saint Louis University in the Fall to get my masters degree in Student Personnel Administration.  I am going to be in college for the rest of my life (that is what they tell me).  But I plan to have much more of an impact on others than what most people see.  I have always wanted to help people, to grow, to lead, to be more than what they dream they can be.  If it wasn’t for my time at Fontbonne, and those who have helped me grow, I would have never chosen this career for myself.

Who am I now… How is that going to help me… Am I really ready to “Adult”?

I am different, I have changed, I have grown.  I know that I am on the right path.  I have always been told that I can do anything I set my mind to; I believe that to this day.  I can do or be anything I want to be in this world.  I want to help students like myself realize that early; money is not everything in this world.  It does not matter how much money you make if you are in a job that you hate.  Live for what you believe in and do whatever you wish to do.  Someone along the line will support you, and help you to grow into the person that you need to be for the career.

Believe me, this is not the end… It is just a new chapter in the book of my life.  And I cannot wait to see how it reads.

The car I always wanted is the sky blue Fiat. It has a moon roof and is the perfect color. I had always wanted a Fiat because I like foreign cars; recently I saw a light green fiat that I really like.

However, I think I will end up buying a Honda. This is because Fiats are not reliable and known for breaking down. Hondas are known for being reliable. I want a car that lasts for 10 years and that doesn’t need a lot of maintenance. The reason for buying a car is so that I can earn credit to receive a mortgage. I plan on buying a house and never living in an apartment. I want to use money as an investment, not throw it all away in rent.

Career Plans

by Patricia on April 25, 2016

in Academics,After College

I am very excited for this summer. I got an internship with Nordstrom for next year! I applied for it this year and since I do not have any retail experience, they want me to take a regular sales position this year instead. Hopefully after I complete the internship next summer, I will get a job. I recently talked to my manager to get things set up. I start May 12.

It is very important to figure out your career Junior year of college. This is the time to look for internships and decide if/how you want to go to grad school. The reason for this is because if you wait until Senior year, it might be too late. You don’t have lots of time to meet qualifications you might need. For example, this year I found out that in order to get a scholarship for an MBA program, I need to do more leadership and community service. Right now, I have the whole year to do it and still put it on my application. If I waited until Senior year, it would be hard to find things that I could do in the beginning of the year on time so that I could include it on my application.

I am sooooo glad that I have a plan and that I am not confused what to do after I graduate!

Why Not Being Sure About Where You’re Headed Is Okay!

by Claire April 13, 2016

As a first year freshman, the question I get the most is “what are you studying?” When I say fashion, merchandising, the next thing they ask is, “So you’re going to work at target your whole life? It is pretty annoying to get opinions about your passion that are less than flattering. However, I am […]

College Realities

by Patricia March 4, 2016

Once I went to Fontbonne, all the advice I got in high school was not true. Everyone told me that teachers did not care if you went to class and that classes were extremely hard. At Fontbonne, the teachers do care about students coming to class and they care about students learning. In one of my […]

Originally, I planned to major in dietetics and work in sports nutrition. Initially, […]

“What are You Going to Do with a Professional Writing Major?”

by Quinn February 25, 2016

“Why professional writing?” Or, “Why an English major?” These are common questions I am constantly asked by my friends, coaches and family members. I know the general consensus about English classes is typically a negative one so why in the world would I want to spend four years of my life studying it? Well, I […]

Lean into the Uncomfortable

by Fontbonne University December 8, 2015

This has quickly become my mantra this year and I have never been happier. For as long as I can remember, I have always gone somewhere with someone. No big deal, right? Wrong. Going anywhere alone sounded crazy for the longest time and I always dreaded just the idea of it. Recently, I have taken up *practically* hibernating […]

Tips for applying to Grad School

by Alumni Posts October 8, 2015

So if you’re a senior like myself and are considering going to graduate school to continue your education in whatever field you’d like, you probably haven’t had a whole lot of direction.  One of my professors just came to one of my classes on Monday to talk about it and didn’t even answer all the […]
