It Feels Good To Be A Gangster

by Alumni Posts January 29, 2014

Okay, this post is gonna be about Griffin Gang, which is one of the organizations I’m involved in here at Fontbonne. It’s new this year, so it’s been a little slow to start, but it has a lot of potential. Its purpose is to support the athletic programs at Fontbonne by having events centered around […]

Here We Are Now, Entertain Us

by Alumni Posts November 5, 2013

Who has two thumbs and is excited about Spirit Week?!? Unsurprisingly, THIS kid right here. Back in my high school days, Spirit Week was a super big deal because we got to dress up according to themes (already right up my alley) and NOT WEAR OUR SCHOOL UNIFORMS. Now that I’m in college, I don’t […]

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

Fontbonne University is a place I consider to be my second home. I’ve met countless students and faculty that are now considered some of my closest friends and mentors in life. 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 Alumni Posts 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 […]
