Last Few Weeks in Illinois

by Corie June 2, 2014

I just got back to STL from spending some weeks back home in Illinois. Which was my last. Illinois will no longer be my physical home come July. My parents will be living in Florida, and I will still be in STL. Its a scary thing. I have to make a decision where I am […]

This Is It.

by Alumni Posts May 10, 2014

I’ve been thinking about what to say in my final Fontbonne blog for some time now. I’ve been trying to think of witty comments or good advice to give to current and incoming students. But, for the first time, I think I’ll just make it short and sweet. These past four years have definitely been […]

The Next Step

by Kristen April 30, 2014

It’s the last week of class . . . where has the time gone?   I know that everyone is excited that summer is nearly here.  Unfortunately, we still have that week of stress known as “finals” standing in our way.  Ugh! Anyway, for many students, these last two weeks are the final days of school […]

‘Major’ Wake-Up Call/Art Is Everywhere To Me

by Alumni Posts April 30, 2014

“Tara, what are you majoring in again?” I am a Fine Arts major! Why, you may ask? Well, I don’t know, maybe it’s the thrill of getting creative with a blank canvas or the fact that I’m just really good at drawing, painting, and graphically designing. It’s my niche, where I belong. I always knew […]

by Alumni Posts April 30, 2014

Hello! Today, I am going to be sharing my thoughts on community service and its relevance to Fontbonne’s mission statement. • “Why is service so important?” Serving your community lets others know that you want to help change the world little by little while gaining a new perspective of life. Service, amidst being so important, […]

Top Lessons I Learned in College (And Not from a Textbook) 1.)  You don’t need to transfer schools or move across the country to somewhere more beautiful or exciting in order to be happy. Happiness is right where you are, and finding it is all a matter of changing your perspective on where you’re at. […]

The Seaweed is Always Greener

by Alumni Posts April 28, 2014

One of the things I like best about Fontbonne, and I’m sure I’ve said this many times before, is how easy it is to get involved in things.  And not just get involved, but dominate.  Perhaps this sounds negative, but I’ve always felt that Fontbonne provides a perfect “big fish in a little pond” atmosphere, […]

…And Decisions.

by Alumni Posts April 21, 2014

A couple of weeks ago as a blog prompt, it was suggested we post a picture that pretty much sums up our Fontbonne career. Here’s a good one to sum up my life as of late: I don’t think I’ve ever been so sleep deprived in my entire life, between early morning track practices, staying […]

Life in Fast Forward

by Alumni Posts April 19, 2014

I’ve been thinking a lot about graduation lately. Perhaps that’s because I now have less than a month until the big day. My final undergrad to-do list is quickly dwindling, and every project, quiz, paper, or test that I’m finishing is becoming one of my last of my undergrad career. My planner is definitely filling […]

Research Methods

by Alumni Posts April 9, 2014

So… I’ve spent the first six months in 2014 trying to decide whether I wanted to do a thesis or not. In the graduate program for speech-pathology, this is optional, so we have a choice. I asked around; students who did do one felt incredibly gratified and fulfilled. Those who did not do one were […]
