Our Causes

Stress is firmly set into the lives of students all of the world right now. I wanted to share some of the best quotes that help me get through my most stressful days, nights, and even weeks.

Being in control of your life and having realistic expectations about your day-to-day challenges are the keys to stress management, which is perhaps the most important ingredient to living a happy, healthy and rewarding life. -Marilu Henner

He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature. -Socrates

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. -Ecclesiastes

Stress never ends so there is no point in stressing about every little detail. Most importantly, in a year you’ll barely remember why you felt so stressed over all of these little things, so why stress about it now?



3 Reasons Why Voting Is Important

by Mari on September 21, 2016

in Our Causes


With the general election coming up this fall, I thought I would provide some insight into why voting is important as college students. I am not here to tell you who to vote for, just make sure you vote this fall!

  1. Voting is a privilege.

Most Americans do not consider that some people can’t vote, like people who are underage or undocumented. Not to mention that outside of the U.S., some women in third world countries are still fighting for their right to vote. Vote for those who are not able to.

  1. Make your voice heard!

Voting allows you as a citizen to make the major decisions in our country. Don’t like something you see in our government? Vote to make a difference!

  1. Break stereotypes against young people.

Some older people tend to see young people and millennials as “lazy.” Prove them wrong and go vote! As a young person, this is our country, we need to take ownership of it!

I hope that after reading this post of mine, this will encourage you to consider the importance of voting. As a college student at Fontbonne University, I feel that it is our responsibility to make our voices heard this fall. Vote for someone who will represent your values and concerns the best. Here is a link to a website where you can get registered to vote, to check if you are officially registered, and to get an absentee ballot.

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”-Martin Luther King Jr.

Take care,



It is 10 AM, I’m walking into the Anheuser-Busch Hall Conference Room with a freshly brewed cup of coffee in my right hand while glancing at my left as it holds an agenda while I prepare for that week’s meeting. Being President of an International Non-Profit Organization has its ups and downs. I have been President for 2 years now and I wouldn’t change a thing! So what does Enactus do? Enactus takes the power of entrepreneurial action and creates a better more sustainable world for us all! So what are we up to this year?


This year, we are helping a Non-Profit called the Criminal Justice Ministry (CJM) in their hopes to help former offenders with Job Skill Rehabilitation. The skills that the former offenders learn will help them: land a job, give them a fresh start on life, and much more. The best part for all of you students, even though we are primarily a business organization, that doesn’t mean you have to be a business major to join! We need everyone! We even have a few Psychology majors on our Board helping us because it would give them a chance to maybe psychologically evaluate the former offenders. Computer Science Majors are helping with consultation on a website re-design and who knows, maybe an App! Fashion Merchandising are going to help with the production of the fabric and patterns that will be used for their current line of products (Dog scarves). As you can see, we need everyone! We are really excited about the project this year! And we also attend the Regional & National Conferences where we present our efforts. Since Enactus is a Non-Profit Organization, the judges that we present to are your potential co-workers or Company Recruiters. You can walk out of these Conferences with a Job or Internship! I even won an award for serving 500+ Hours! If you are interested in joining, let me know! Until next time guys, stay classy!



Learn More, Be More, the motto of Fontbonne University, is an outstanding way to describe the community and atmosphere of Fontbonne.
As per the Fontbonne Website, “At Fontbonne, it means small classes where professors engage, challenge — and support — you. It means a focus on internships and other real-world opportunities that provide invaluable experience. And it means a student body that thinks of a college education as a view to the world.” This shows the idea that learning is key to a Fontbonne education, but this is not limited to the classroom.

learn more be more
Learning at Fontbonne is seen on the field, in the café and at all the jobs and places like the library and computer labs. Learn More leads to Being More because students, faculty, and staff put in time and effort to be more than simply students, faculty, and staff. For me, I am a student, work-study student, student blogger, Campus Ministry Leader, and many more things. Professors act as teachers, role models, mentors, and associates in their get list of roles. At Fontbonne, learning leads to being.

What I mean by this is that the learning in the classroom leads all people at Fontbonne to go out of their way to be a better friend, teacher, family member, worker, boss, etc. Students get to have hands on experience. With the SLP clinic, students can help people in the Fontbonne community while completing their degrees.


The main page of the Fontbonne website says, “Learn more. Be more.® isn’t just a slogan. It’s who we are. It’s what makes us different. Our values-based campus community promotes and embraces respect, compassion and service. We’re committed to providing a personalized educational experience that encourages you to explore your role in the world and how you can make it a better place. We believe that you can learn more and be more — in college, in a career and in life.”
Learn more. Be more.
