College Life

That is where you will see me on June 26th. My friend told me about the concert two days ago. I instantly bought tickets. Neon Trees is one of my favorite bands and it was only $10. Since I missed them at Pointfest, I wasn’t going to miss them again! Their current tour is for their pop psychology album, which is AMAZING. Ever since I bought the ticket I have been listening to them non-stop again. This will be my second time seeing Neon Trees in STL. The first time was at UMSL in 2012. Its due to see them again!

This will be at 21+ show so there will be no pesky teenagers there at all, which will be great and not annoying. Pictures are to follow!

Summer classes started at Fontbonne this week. It has been a little rough, since all I want to do is sleep. I have a practicum in the Advancement office working on PR and advertising for SAA. Which I love; I am having so much fun with it. The downer is my Tuesday/Thursday class. 8am-10:30am spreadsheets aka excel. How boring is that, so early in the morning. It will be an easy A so that’s okay.

Also, during the summer I am continuing to work for the Griffin Roar aka the Fontbanner. I really enjoy it since I like to write. If anyone is interested in writing for it email me with questions: krischc@fontbonne.edu. I can give you information if you would like to write for the summer and/or if you would like to sign up for the class in the fall. We always need writers. The more content we have, the better!

If you are ever looking for a good time out, try visiting the Delmar Loop. It isn’t too far from campus and it can be a strip of fun if you go with the right people. Delmar Loop has lots of food so your appetite is welcomed. They have bowling, a hooka lounge, and a hotel. This is good outing for college kids who just need a break away from school. We all need a little summer break and since it’s summertime, you shouldn’t hesitate to go! Enjoy!

summer job

by Britney on June 2, 2014

in College Life

Many people are looking for summer jobs this summer. The best way to do this is to fill out many job applications and stay persistent. Many food places are hiring, like Qdoba, Panda Express, and many stores in the mall. If you can’t seem to find a job by filling out apps, trying going into the places where you filled out the apps so they can put a face with an application. This will most likely give you a heads up. If you haven’t had a job before, be sure to write down places that you’ve volunteered. This is always good. If none of these seem to work, you may just have to start your own business. Go door to door selling candy, chips, or cookies. You can also set up a lemonade stand or do a car wash. Nobody wants to be broke during the summer!

Well, this school year has definitely had its ups and downs. There were so many memorable moments, and I made lots of great friends. However, it was also very stressful moving away from home and keeping up with all my school work. I joined the honors program here, so I’ve had some harder classes, but […]

Let’s Go Cardinals!

by Conner May 5, 2014

The Department of Leadership, Education, and Student Activities. Whoa, that’s a mouthful. Better known as DLESA, this department hosts a few major campus organizations at Fontbonne, one of which I’m a part of. Omicron Delta Kappa falls under the DLESA umbrella. As we near the final days of the semester (yikes), the department was kind […]

Strut It St. Louis

You may not know it, but St. Louis is somewhat of a force in the fashion industry. As a student in the fashion merchandising department here at Fontbonne, it was my turn this semester to enroll in the “Promotion in the Merchandising Environment” course. A group of fourteen students, myself included, have been working on […]
