After College

“Back to School” for the Last Time

by Courtney January 20, 2014

This is my last semester at Fontbonne. Wow. Though it feels like I’ve been waiting for years to be able to say that, actually saying it feels strange. I finished all of my courses required for my various biology programs in December, so now I’m just finishing up my theatre minor and taking a couple […]

Words of Wisdom

by Alumni Posts December 16, 2013

For days I have been thinking about my future.  What to do after I graduate, should I go ahead and find a job or go straight to do my Phd.  I could do both, but at the same time, I will have to first study  for the GRE.  Fontbonne University does not require Graduate students […]

Thoughts About Graduation

by Alumni Posts December 12, 2013

I can remember how mad my mom was at me at my graduation ceremony for my BFA.  She was upset with me that I wasn’t excited or wanting to take pictures like everyone else.  The reason why is that I finished my degree in December of 2009 but they only did a ceremony in May, […]

Resumes, Interviews and Jobs!

by Alumni Posts December 9, 2013

Are you approaching graduation?  Trying to figure out how to find a job?  Or as I call it, getting a “big-kid job.”  When I was graduating from Lindenwood with my BFA, I began to do the graduation freak out!  The “Wait, what do I do now?” questioning.  A little gem that is not really known […]

It’s Hard to Say Farewell

by Alumni Posts December 2, 2013

After 24 years of constantly moving  and leaving behind friends. I should be okay to move back to the East Coast; but this is not the case.  Everything started when I was a year old. My family moved to Japan and after 4 years we moved to Peru.  Well, I don’t quite remember my Japanese […]

…I’m Going to See Where it Leads.

by Carly November 18, 2013

Don’t worry! I’m alive and well. It’s been a crazy semester, no doubt, but hands down it’s been the best of my undergrad career. I have so much to talk about! But here’s a quick run-down on the important things that have happened this semester: 1.) I finally, finally joined the cross country and track […]

But Where Will I Blog?!

by Courtney November 16, 2013

I’ve been preparing for my May graduation in various ways. I’ve applied for grad schools all over. I’ve really considered what I want to do with my life. I’ve been tutoring biology at school a ton, and I’ve been interning off campus in a lab all while taking 18 credit hours in order to prepare […]

I’m a Poet

by Courtney November 10, 2013

Last week, while I was looking online for some microbiology information, I saw a blog-style article. Being interested, I clicked on the link to open the article and began reading. I’m a very opinionated person myself, and I respect others’ viewpoints so long as they have backing for those viewpoints, but I definitely didn’t like […]

Where Did The Semester Go?!

by Corie November 8, 2013

Griffins! I cannot believe that it is almost Thanksgiving break and the semester is almost over! Trust me I am so glad. This semester has been really stressful and I am in need of a break and some family time. On my plate I have 18 credit hours, trying to have a social life, VP […]

Perceptions

by Courtney October 12, 2013

It doesn’t seem like there’s that much difference between the phrases “I’m going to be” and “I am.” But, coming from my viewpoint, those phrases couldn’t be more different. Two years ago in one of my theatre classes (because, remember, I’m a theatre minor amidst all of my biology programs), our professor led a discussion […]
