Oh, the Woes of Advising.

by Abigail 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 Kimi 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 [...]

A course that changed the way I view my world…

by Kimi October 23, 2013

Studies in Disabilities and Exceptionalities was by far the most life-changing course I have taken so far, not just at Fontbonne but at any college for any degree or certification! Through this course we were constantly given examples of the inequalities that happen each day for those who are disabled. This course caused each of [...]

NSSL…What?

by Kristen October 15, 2013

This is going to be one of those “propaganda” posts for a Fontbonne activity (consider yourself warned).  But it won’t be painful, I promise! I want to tell you a little bit about NSSLHA. What is this acronym, Kristen? I’m so glad you asked! NSSLHA stands for the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association. As [...]

No Dark Sarcasm in the Classroom

by Marielle October 7, 2013

One of the great things about my classroom experience at Fontbonne so far is the opportunities I have been given to get out of the classroom. Whether through practicum experience, a field trip, or even simply attending an on-campus event, the dietetics program at Fontbonne is all about creating a dynamic learning environment. For example, [...]

Inspiration from a Hot Sauce Packet

by Courtney October 6, 2013

I love inspirational quotes. They bring a smile to my face on a dreary day, they make me laugh, and they remind me to keep believing in myself and progressing toward my life goals. Generally, I find inspiration in quotes from movies, books, plays, and musicals. However, I just recently found an inspirational quote located [...]

Just Do Your Best, Do Everything You Can

by Marielle July 26, 2013

As I approach my final year at Fontbonne, I have to start thinking about my life post-grad. Like most dietetics majors, I’ll be applying for an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics-certified internship this spring and then preparing to take my exam to become a Registered Dietitian. The internship selection process is notoriously cutthroat, so it [...]
