Falling for Fall

by Anna on September 21, 2016

in College Life,Extracurricular

As I write this, we are just TWO days away from fall (although with the temperatures, it’s hard to think about)!  Can you believe we’re already back at this point?  It feels like we just started 2016 and now we’re moving into the final quarter of it!

Coming in at a very close second to winter, fall is my favorite season.  I love almost everything about it — the beautiful color changes in the trees, the cooler nip in the air (jacket season!), the yummy treats we can bake, and the fun fall activities going on around Fontbonne’s campus and in the area.

Since I drive to school every day, I get to look forward to enjoying the gorgeous reds, yellows, and oranges explode in the next few weeks.  Hopefully we have some great colors this year…they provide awesome photo opportunities!  And of course, what’s better than a fall hike to enjoy the foliage at a slower pace?

What are some of your favorite fall treats?  I’m a huge fan of apple-anything — you name it, apple pie, apple bread, apple muffins, apple cake, even just an apple by itself!  Its flavor rockets to the sky with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, or cloves.  Another great “fall ingredient” is the infamous pumpkin, although I’m not as big a fan of it.  But I’ve got some great recipes that use both apple and pumpkin, so undoubtedly I’ll be making them in the next few months — yummy!  I have a captive audience at home with my always-ready-to-try-what-I-fix family, too! 🙂

Finally, what’s fall without some old-fashioned family fun?  Hayrides, bonfires, apple-picking, corn mazes, and much more abound in the area.  In just a few weeks (October 7), Fontbonne itself is sponsoring a trip to Eckert’s for just $10 per ticket…including food and transportation!  What a great way to get into the fall spirit — embrace it fully!

Happy fall!

~Anna

P.S. — What’s the one thing I don’t like about fall?  The diminishing daylight — it makes it hard to get things done outside in time!  Nevertheless, though, I really do love fall!

As an undergrad I was involved with the social work club. I wasn’t able to do as much as I’d like to due to being a non traditional student and having children at home to take care of. But now that my children are a bit older. It’s still a task, but I’m currently a part of the Alumni Board. I was recently selected in July 2016 and have attended both meetings so far. It has been a wonderful experience. I have met many people from all ages, experiences and backgrounds that have one mission, and that is to build the Fontbonne community while thriving to engage, educate and enhance all students including alums as well as each other.

I know that joining the board will not only be a perk for resume purposes but most importantly for building new friendships with people that believe in what you believe in “Working Towards a Common Good.” Joining the board has been one great decision I’ve made!

You should consider too!

About Me

by Adriana on September 19, 2016

in College Life

Hi everybody!

My name is Adriana Salazar, I am 20 years old and I am a transfer student from Ecuador! I think is amazing that we can have this space for sharing opinions and experiences about what we are going through in our lives.

In this post I am going to share 10 things about me 🙂

  1. My home city is called Guayaquil. It is a great city, you will always find something to do and it one of the two biggest cities in Ecuador.
  2. I am bilingual girl. I went to a bilingual middle school and high school, so that is how I learned English. I have to admit that sometimes I struggle with some words and grammar issues.
  3. In my family we are 6. My parents, my two little brothers, and my dog; her name is Lu and she is a beagle.
  4. I want to major in Special Education and maybe minor in Speech Language Pathology. I enjoy interacting with kids and I am very interested in learning about children with special needs.
  5. I am part of Schoenstatt Catholic movement since I was a little girl. Being part of Shoenstatt has been a great way for me to involve God in my life.
  6. I love photography. I have never been in photography course, but I would really like to do one. I just take photos as a hobby. This year I decided to start an Instagram portfolio which is about my city, Guayaquil, the purpose of it is to let people know the different things you can found in the city. The account is called: life_in_guayaquil
  7. I did my first year of college in Ecuador and this year I transferred to Fontbonne. I am currently in my sophomore year.
  8. I choose Fontbonne University because I really like the Special Education program they offer here. I also like the fact that it is a small campus and I think St. Louis is a very nice city.
  9. I listen to different kind of music genres and I am always exploring new music. My favorite soundtrack right now is Fruta Vol. II by Caloncho. It is a mix of tropical beach music, very relaxing, and it is on spotify. If you are having a stressful situation, just listen to it.
  10. I would like to roadtrip South America once in my life.

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!

I think it is safe to say that I am very involved at Fontbonne. Brace yourself! It may seem like a lot, but it is just enough to keep me busy and not too much. I have been on Fontbonne Activities Board (FAB) for 4 years. I help plan major events on campus including homecoming […]

Homecoming Week

by Claire September 16, 2016

Homecoming is a special time in both high school and college. However, the two are extremely different and students experience the two completely differently as well. Homecoming in high school involved lots of prep for a pep rally, last minute running around and trying to memorize cheer routines, football plays, chants, and school spirit permeates. […]

Involvement on Campus

by Anna September 15, 2016

As a commuter student, my life on campus is definitely different from residents.  I am working most evenings, so any events going on at that time are most likely not going to work for my schedule.  Fortunately, Fontbonne still offers plenty of opportunities to be involved during the day and if you are limited on […]

American Flags Covering Art Hill

by Claire September 15, 2016

If anyone has been on Snapchat the last week or so, you have probably seen the flags that are on Art Hill in Forest Park in Saint Louis. Over 7,000 flags have been placed in Forest Park to honor the lives of 7,000 fallen soldiers from wars from Afghanistan and Iraq and never made it back […]

by Lauren September 15, 2016

This semester has gotten off to a crazy busy start! Summer seems like a distant memory. But I can vividly remember my hopes and goals for the coming fall semester and I am pleased to say that things seem to be on track. Being a commuter, there is a small (and I mean very small) […]
