Earlier this summer, an amazing opportunity came my way. I was asked to help produce a fashion show by the director of the fashion merchandising department at Fontbonne, Mrs. Angie Liljequist. She knows that I want to pursue a career in event planning, so this would be a great way for me to gain more […]

In order to get my degree in fashion merchandising, it is a requirement to complete an internship. And as hard as it is to believe, I am at that point in my college career. My internship is at a company called TalentPlus Universal, which was originally intended to be solely a summer thing. But, I […]

Lovely Life in Lexington

by Carlyn July 23, 2014

Way back in February, I found out about an internship opportunity on the Omicron Delta Kappa website. It said “Are you interested in a career in event planning!?” And since I am interested in such a career and am an ODK member, I thought this would be perfect. The position would entail an intern to […]

This Is It.

by Alumni Posts May 10, 2014

I’ve been thinking about what to say in my final Fontbonne blog for some time now. I’ve been trying to think of witty comments or good advice to give to current and incoming students. But, for the first time, I think I’ll just make it short and sweet. These past four years have definitely been […]

The Next Step

by Kristen April 30, 2014

It’s the last week of class . . . where has the time gone?   I know that everyone is excited that summer is nearly here.  Unfortunately, we still have that week of stress known as “finals” standing in our way.  Ugh! Anyway, for many students, these last two weeks are the final days of school […]

‘Major’ Wake-Up Call/Art Is Everywhere To Me

by Alumni Posts April 30, 2014

“Tara, what are you majoring in again?” I am a Fine Arts major! Why, you may ask? Well, I don’t know, maybe it’s the thrill of getting creative with a blank canvas or the fact that I’m just really good at drawing, painting, and graphically designing. It’s my niche, where I belong. I always knew […]

Working in College

by Joanna April 28, 2014

Working in college is a kind of debated topic. Some people say you should focus on school, that college is a big change in your life and you need to take it one step at a time. Others say you should work as much as you can. I think the answer is somewhere in the […]

…And Decisions.

by Alumni Posts April 21, 2014

A couple of weeks ago as a blog prompt, it was suggested we post a picture that pretty much sums up our Fontbonne career. Here’s a good one to sum up my life as of late: I don’t think I’ve ever been so sleep deprived in my entire life, between early morning track practices, staying […]

Dallas Days

by Carlyn April 15, 2014

Every spring, the fashion merchandising department alternates between taking trips to New York City and Dallas. I had the absolute time of my life on the NYC trip last year, so couldn’t wait for the Dallas one this year. It was a short, but sweet trip that lasted three days. This study tour landed during […]

Changes…

by Alumni Posts April 7, 2014

I knew going into the week after spring break that it was going to be the “Face the To-Do List I was Supposed to Tackle During Spring Break Week” week. Does that make sense? However I write it though, the week was, in a word, rough. And I loved it for that. Because weeks that […]
