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 […]

Speech Therapy Observation

by Joanna March 24, 2014

This week I had the opportunity to meet with a private practitioner speech therapist. She talked with me about all the different places she has worked as a speech-language pathologist, and even let me observe a therapy session! I was super stoked because this was the first time I got to watch a therapy session […]

A Few Days Away

by Corie March 10, 2014

Until SPRING BREAK. Not just any spring break. My LAST spring break of college. Say what?! I feel like I graduated from PSHS not too long ago. Though, college has its downs I am really wishing that my last year of college goes slower. The real world is a scary place. I am worried about […]

Currently

by Lizzie March 7, 2014

This is a common phrase, I believe: “I’m so tired of the cold and snow!” Yes, that is the main sentence for the past two months. It’s bizarre! I guess we can cope with the constant cold and snow, but jeez, it does get old. And it doesn’t make things better with all the accidents […]

It chose me

by Marki March 3, 2014

“Why did you chose Fashion Merchandising, why did you chose theater?” Questions I hear quite frequently from people wanting to know the reason behind my two very creative major choices. Well personally I’d like to think that my  majors chose me. I say this because since I was a small child these two things just […]

Why Speech Path?

by Sarah March 3, 2014

For me, Speech-Language Pathology (SLP)  just made sense.  In high school I had been looking into majoring in something in the category of the medical field.  But I didn’t want to be a doctor or a nurse.  For a while I was thinking of going into Physical Therapy but that just didn’t seem quite right […]

My Major Chose Me.

by Corie February 27, 2014

I always knew that I wanted to do something with the media. Then I also wanted to mix it in with something I am good at, writing. I will be graduating next fall with my B.A in Advertising with a concentration in professional writing. I didn’t start out that way though. Freshmen year, I was […]
