Now, from my title you are probably thinking “It’s the middle of October, why is this girl posting about Christmas already?!” And since you probably don’t know me, that is a very honest question. But for those who know me know that Red October is my favorite time of year. A fall baseball game is […]

Lacrosse?

by Alumni Posts October 7, 2013

In high school I played basketball and ran cross country, but I did not plan on playing sports at Fontbonne. However, one night two of my floor mates had their lacrosse sticks out and asked if I wanted to play lacrosse in the meadow. I went and played catch. It was really difficult in the […]

I didn’t choose the dance life; the dance life chose me.

by Sarah October 7, 2013

When I came to Fontbonne I had no plans to continue dancing  in college.  I hadn’t even brought my dance shoes or supplies with me!  However, towards the end of August I started seeing flyers up all over campus inviting anyone and everyone to come try out for the dance team.  After much convincing from […]

Baseball Heaven

by Alumni Posts October 3, 2013

When someone hears the words “St. Louis”, there are many things that come to mind. There’s the decadent gooey butter cake, Ted Drewes, toasted raviolis, heck, even the Arch. But to most people,(especially those who live in StL), one thing tends to consistently pop into mind. That being, baseball. Ahh, yes, the Cardinals. And with […]

A time to be remembered :)

by Alumni Posts October 2, 2013

I’m graduating in December and when looking back on my time spent here so many memories pop into mind. Take moving into the dorms […]

Color Run!

by Tim September 30, 2013

This was my second color run. My sister, brother, his girlfriend, his girlfriend’s dog, and I were a team this year. The color run raises money for charities. The run was a 5k, with stations where they toss food dye on you. The colors this year were orange, pink, blue, green, and yellow. There was […]

Last month was my last official performance as a Fontbonne Griffin Girl! For those of you who don’t know, Griffin Girls is the Dance Team at Fontbonne. We mostly just perform at the halftime of the Men’s Basketball Games, but I know that the team is looking to grow by performing at other events and […]

Win/Win

by Alumni Posts February 18, 2013

I’d like to take this opportunity to dispel a myth of sorts that exists regarding college athletics. I feel that when most people think of hardcore, elite, watch-worthy teams, the only schools that come to mind are places like Mizzou, KU, Notre Dame, Duke, etc. – the big name Division I teams, basically. I would […]

Twice Baked

by Alumni Posts November 29, 2012

There is this market called “In and Out” located behind St. Mary’s hospital on Clayton road that my friend and I found at the beginning of the school. It has all kind of drinks, a coffee bar, and more. This week I have been fighting for time to get all my homework and projects completed. […]

I Am Thankful.

by Alumni Posts November 26, 2012

Today, I am back home in Kentucky. After the art show Monday night, my mom, dad and boyfriend packed the car and drove the 5.5 hours back home after a 5.5 hour drive to St. Louis. 11 hour drive in one day! They are keepers. The show was fantastic and there was a great turn […]
