Can you believe we have a month left of this semester?? I truly cannot, but I am happy to say goodbye to this semester! This fall I will finally graduate, 10 years overdue, but I did it. I am so happy to be a student at Fontbonne. My professors, instructors, academic advisor have all been wonderful. This school truly has your best interested at heart and are very involved with your academic success.
I hope you all have positive experiences as well. Have a great week:)
This week I’d like to share my best experience studying in Fontbonne University. When I first moved to St. Louis to study at Fontbonne, I was a bit scared since I was moving from California where there’s more people with various ethnicity and races. That’s why when I first moved in here, I was scared as I felt I was very different from others. However, now I’m really thankful that I can came to St Louis to study in here. My classmates here are all very nice and friendly. Before in California, I tended to interact more with people who are the same race or speak the same language as me. But after I came to study here, I developed a very good and close relationship with my fellow classmates. They all appreciated my (non fluent) oral speaking. I’m very pleased that even though we all come from different cultures, we can still accept each other and explore one another’s cultures. I’m really glad that I can make these lovely classmates at Fontbonne — they make me feel not alone in a totally different place than California.
Nothing shapes you more than the people around you. Every person that has influenced your life was there for a reason and college isn’t different. When I first came to college I had a lot of awesome people around me. However, forging a bond with other first years really helped me get used the change of college.
My group of friends that I met this year are all sorts of busy with school and work. Saying that, we found time for friends-mas. Friends-mas was a Christmas celebration before we went home for actual Christmas with our families. Being away during the season can be hard, but friends-mas was the answer. We visited the zoo, explored St. Louis, and much more together.
We have supported each other through the change of college. I have met some awesome people at Fontbonne but nothing is better than actually relating to someone. The people I’ve met here helped make Fontbonne home.
I scored my first goal in Lacrosse this weekend.. Yeah..

This week, I am going to talk about how tough college is. It’s so tough that you have excellent professors to take care of your needs whenever you need them! It’s so tough that most colleges, especially Fontbonne, provide resource centers to get any extra help, extra time on tests or tutoring from professors, students and alumni. It’s so hard that the online class discussion boards are easy to access from your phone or tablet and teachers are included in discussions to give day to day feedback on all posts.
I’ve learned in my 4 years at a total of four different institutions that college isn’t all that bad. It’s only tough if you make it tough and Fontbonne offers a variety of ways to get through it. Whether you’re a online student, commuter or a full time student who will never leave their dorm room, college doesn’t have to be hard. Actually, it should be a blast!
