It’s Hard to Say Farewell

by Alumni Posts December 2, 2013

After 24 years of constantly moving  and leaving behind friends. I should be okay to move back to the East Coast; but this is not the case.  Everything started when I was a year old. My family moved to Japan and after 4 years we moved to Peru.  Well, I don’t quite remember my Japanese […]

This semester, I took a leadership course for graduate students (HES535 Leadership Development for Professional Practice). In this class, we talked about different leadership styles based on theories. There were many meaningful assignments we needed to do for this class. One of my favorite projects is to shadow a CEO or president in a non-profit […]

Butternut Squash Macaroni

by Alumni Posts November 26, 2013

Last week, we made Butternut Squash Macaroni with the first graders at Maplewood Richmond Heights Early Childhood Center. Every single kid loved it!  We had no picky eaters at all.  While I was cooking this recipe with them, I thought about us college students. How hard it is to cook a nutritious meal.  This recipe is […]

Thanksgiving and Finals Week are coming!

by Penny November 25, 2013

The thanksgiving break is coming, but that also means that our finals week is coming. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays in the United States, because it means family gathering. It’s like the Lunar Chinese New Year in Taiwan. However, it’s sad that the final week of the semester is coming as well. Therefore, […]

Oh, the Woes of Advising.

by Alumni Posts November 15, 2013

Wow, we’re already in November! This time of year is always a favorite of mine. The leaves are changing on the trees, the crisp fall air sends chills down my spine, and I get to wear comfy clothes. Yep, it’s a good time to be alive! Oh. Wait. I forgot that advising at Fontbonne also […]

More Fashion Fun

by Carlyn November 13, 2013

Once again, I was provided with an amazing opportunity, thanks to the fashion merchandising department here at Fontbonne. With my Advanced Apparel Production and Evaluation class, we visited a local fashion designers’ studio. His name is A.J. Thouvenot, and he was a competitor on Project Runway a few years ago (which is the only TV […]

The Favorites

by Deanna October 28, 2013

Sometimes it is really shocking which classes end up being your favorites. Mine would have to be two that I expected the be the most work, which they were, but they were also the most rewarding courses I have taken so far during my time here at Fontbonne. I have three favorite classes. All of them […]

Take the Time to Appreciate

by Marielle October 23, 2013

When someone asks me what my favorite course has been so far during my time at Fontbonne, I always give the same answer: Music Appreciation. This response has the tendency to baffle people. I took it first semester my freshman year, it’s a Gen Ed class, and it has absolutely nothing to do with my […]

Comfort Zones

by Alumni Posts October 23, 2013

I have never really been one to jump outside of my comfort zone; I never really was brought up to. My life has always been very planned, even vacations; we are the family with an itinerary down to the minute. I just thought that’s how it always was! Well, as I have grown up, become […]
