Career Paths

Hello everyone,

This is my final blog and my final week here on campus at Fontbonne as a student.  I can’t believe my college career is coming to a close really quickly.  I have learned so much from my time here at Fontbonne and one of the main things is time management and experiences.  For me I have had to manage my time well throughout my four years at Fontbonne because I have been an involved student athlete.  I have been on the Fontbonne golf team all four years and I am so thankful for the opportunities, friendships and memories that my team has given me during my time on the team.  I have had so many positive experiences during my time on this campus from on campus events to campus ministry retreats, they have all had an impact on the person who I am today.  One thing I learned most is to always take opportunities to attend events whether on campus or off campus because that is the way you will gain friendships.  I have gained so many close friends through organizations and events I have attended such as Snowcoming, off campus sports games, service projects, and various retreats.

In the future I plan to continue taking on experiences with my friends whether it is a local service project or attending a local event, and I hope to always find the positive in the moment.  Once I learned how to stay busy and still manage all of my school work, I knew I could make from week to week and that in the end I would make it through the semester.  Time management is key for any type of job whether I am working in food service or I am serving the dear neighbor by working in the yard.  It is always good to find an efficient way to get the job done so that those who you are working with are not telling you to hurry up.  I learned that it is good to live in the moment throughout all of the fun experiences I have had with friends and my hope is to continue doing that with my good friends after I graduate.  I was recently given great advice from my golf coach, your windshield is larger than your rear view mirror for a reason, because what lies ahead of you is great and more important than what is behind you.  I can’t change what has happened in the last four years while at Fontbonne, it is all a bunch of memories created by my friends and faculty who have made me the person I am now.  The windshield is what lies ahead and the opportunities are waiting and only God’s timing will tell where I end up having a strong career after college comes to a close.

Thank you for reading my blogs this semester and have a great summer everyone.

As one nation, GO Cards and GO Blues!

Where did the Spring semester go? Finals are next week! Can you believe it?! As I have stated before, I have an internship lined up for the summer. But other than that, as President for the 3rd term (2017-2018), I am excited to see what lies ahead. But at the same time, wow! I am a Senior next year! It feels like it was just yesterday I was a Freshman. There have so many things that I have done in the past 3 years while at Fontbonne. From Presidency, to double majoring, to accomplishing dual work-study. And some how, I am still alive!  All in all, Junior year has been great! But Senior year will be MUCH better! Until next time, stay classy!

As I have probably mentioned before, I majored in fashion merchandising at Fontbonne for my undergraduate degree. I still keep in contact with all of the wonderful professors in the department, and always let them know if they need anything. A few weeks ago, the director of the program, Dr. Liljequist, told me she had some ideas on how we can collaborate. She asked if I would be interested in updating some of the bulletin boards in the business department hallways. I love any sort of crafty project, so of course I said yes! This will be a task that I complete throughout the end of the semester and into the early parts of summer. That way, when students come back for the fall semester, the walls will look fresh and updated. While I am doing this, I’ll also help clean up our resources room in fashion merchandising so things are easy to find for the next group of students that will be using the space for various projects.

I don’t have any pictures to post yet, as I am still in the beginning stages of this project. But I will say that I have a lot of ideas up my sleeve that are very different from what’s currently there! I hope the students that end up walking the halls of AB (Anheuser-Busch building) will enjoy the new look of the department. If you continue to keep in touch with teachers, advisors, coworkers, etc., you never know what opportunities may come out of the connections. Whether it’s a small task or a potential job, it’s important to nurture the relationships and connections you make in life. Because I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the fashion merchandising department, I will always have an interest in helping them out. I just can’t stay away. 🙂

Hello all,

I hope everyone has had a productive week as you all have been preparing for the end of the semester with papers and projects.  As a senior on campus who is getting ready for graduation, so I know it is a tough time in the semester.  I am also a student athlete at Fontbonne and I work outside of school downtown at Busch Stadium.  It has definitely been a stressful few weeks since we have been back from spring break because there is just so much to do.  I will give you all the advice that I have been given from other some of my life mentors who I have known for a while.  Even though it may be a stressful time in the school year for students, just remember to breath and smile along the way.  If you remember to smile and stay positive you will make it to the finish line.  Although you may be overwhelmed with all of your assignments and deadlines, but know you will make it through to May. Sometimes I feel as though things are being thrown at me all at once, but it only lasts for so long and then the semester will be over.

New beginnings…

Hey guys! It’s a testament to how insane grad school is that I haven’t written in a long time. I’ve been crazy busy with assignments, papers, projects, you name it! But thankfully, Easter break was restful, and I’m hoping I’ll be able to complete my third semester of grad school with a bang. Since I’m […]

Personally for me, I have a handful of things to take […]
