As an undergrad I was involved with the social work club. I wasn’t able to do as much as I’d like to due to being a non traditional student and having children at home to take care of. But now that my children are a bit older. It’s still a task, but I’m currently a part of the Alumni Board. I was recently selected in July 2016 and have attended both meetings so far. It has been a wonderful experience. I have met many people from all ages, experiences and backgrounds that have one mission, and that is to build the Fontbonne community while thriving to engage, educate and enhance all students including alums as well as each other.
I know that joining the board will not only be a perk for resume purposes but most importantly for building new friendships with people that believe in what you believe in “Working Towards a Common Good.” Joining the board has been one great decision I’ve made!
You should consider too!
My name is Tricia Welch. I am a Senior at Fontbonne this year. I am a double major in Buisness Administration and Management. I am part of the Fontbonne activities board, an SGA rep, and a member of Enactus. I am currently doing an internship with lifework systems. My boss runs a business in her home. She sells professional development programs to different health care facilities. It is my job to put word doc into an excel spreadsheet and call the facilities to get contact information. I am helping her book a conference so that she can sell her programs. Next year I would like to go to grad school at Wash U to get my MBA. However, it is likely I will need work experience first. I want to work in retail and I love sales. For fun, I like to hang out with friends, watch TV, play games on my phone, bake, and go swimming. I am really excited for Fall, but I’m not ready for it just yet. I can’t wait for my favorite show Scream Queens to start and to drink pumpkin drinks. I also love Halloween. I will be doing lots of baking, decorating and going to haunted houses.
Hello everyone, and welcome back to school! I hope you all had a great summer. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Taylor, and I am a senior here at Fontbonne. This is my fourth year here, and I am looking forward to a great final year at school. I thought I might tell you a little about myself. I am majoring in dietetics, and when I graduate I am hoping to get a dietetic internship and get myself on my dream path of working in sports nutrition. My ultimate goal is to work with professional tennis players specifically. On campus, I am pretty involved. I am on my third year of being a resident assistant here, as well as being the Apartment Coordinator for our off-campus apartment building, Cotta Hall. I am also currently the president of the Student Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (SAFCS) and between that, my RA job, studying, getting ready for internships, and blogging, I keep myself super busy! When I’m not on campus, I like to hang out with my friends and family, workout, eat, and do hot yoga, which I do almost every day. My other goal when I graduate is actually to become a certified yoga instructor! My favorite food is ranch dressing, my favorite hobby is napping, and I’m addicted to Grey’s Anatomy. I can’t wait to get to know all of you! Have a great semester!
Even though this is my third year of college, this is only my second semester at Fontbonne. I previously attended Truman State University as an English Education major. But, I soon realized I wanted to get into the health field and found myself fascinated with dietetics. I chose Fontbonne not only because of their beautiful campus, but also because of how welcome I felt as soon as I stepped on campus, how the teachers become your biggest supporters, and of course, because of the great dietetics program. If you’re new to Fontbonne, I hope you fall in love with the university just like I did.
Walking out of class and seeing this view never gets old!
