My Eyes Don’t Recognize You At All

In the past, we’ve featured organic/local food, the Fontbonne garden, endangered animals, electronic recycling, second-hand […]

I love it when hard work pays off.

by Alumni Posts February 4, 2013

Wow. I’m speechless right now thinking about the fact that I’m already a SENIOR in college in my last semester of undergraduate school. I also can’t believe how quickly time has zoomed by! For example, I remember when my fellow Fontbonne friend Lara and I had just decided that we wanted to have a Benefit […]

Feeling Political

by Alumni Posts November 26, 2012

This year got really nasty with comments and jabs at each side of the Presidential debate and that was just on my Facebook among various friends. This year the politics of politics took its toll on my mind and spirit. I consider myself liberal in my views and found myself being called out on several […]

Shopaholic

by Alumni Posts April 24, 2012

Do you like to shop? I love to shop. Unfortunately, constantly buying new things and throwing out the old is not a very eco-friendly move. So can one be both an environmentalist and a shopaholic? Of course. The first step is getting rid of the things you no longer need or want – but just […]
