Staying Organized

by Katie October 1, 2014

If you’re anything like me, you start the semester with the best of intentions.  You vow to stay perfectly organized and file everything in its appropriate place before you go to sleep at night… and then September rolls around, and you’re back to your unorganized, I’ll-deal-with-it-later habits. If you know anything about Pinterest, it’s a […]

If you are a commuter student at Fontbonne who cannot afford a parking pass, like me, there is a key component to your day to day experience that most residential students do not get the pleasure of experiencing: commuter bus rides.  Now, it does depend on the time of day that you get to see […]

My Room on Campus

by Tim October 1, 2014

Every dorm room is almost the same size here at Fontbonne. My room is a double, but I paid for a single which means it is just me. My door has my own style of just random or funny pictures. I have some Walking Dead and pro wrestling pictures on there. I have a carpet […]

Root Beer and French Toast

by Taylor September 29, 2014

“Are you doing anything this weekend?” That’s a common question asked among Fonties on a Friday afternoon. Answers usually involve hanging out with friends and going somewhere around town. That “somewhere around town” usually involves food! As far as food goes, I have some personal favorites here in St. Louis! One of my favorites is […]

St. Paul to St. Louis

by Abby Towle September 29, 2014

Without having a car here on campus I get to experience this beautiful city by foot or by bike! I am from St. Paul, Minnesota and I love being somewhere new where I don’t know where I’m going and what I am going to find. Biking around the Fontbonne University area the past few weeks […]

The Guide to STL: From a Non-St. Louisan

by Cathy September 29, 2014

Coming from a suburb of Chicago, where the hottest hang out was a park (with a twisty slide!), I found St. Louis exciting. Everything felt new and fresh, I could even walk to places! That being said, I want to tell you the best things to do here — and there’s a lot. So, my […]

Little City, Big Perks.

by Corie September 24, 2014

The only city I have ever known is Chicago, which is HUGE. So, when I came to live in St. Louis 2.5 years ago I didn’t know where outside of Fontbonne I could call home. A place where I could go every week to distress from school and life in general. A little over a […]

by Carlyn September 24, 2014

Meet Brooke Stochl. She is my best friend at Fontbonne.

She was the Films Chairperson while I was the Daytime Activities Chairperson. Currently during the 2014-2015 school year, Brooke […]

When Fontbonne Hands you Lemons, Get Involved

by Conner September 23, 2014

“Why are you so involved?” This was the question my supervisor asked me at work last week when I told him I wasn’t closing because I had to go play in the volleyball tournament for ODK. Although my response was, “I ask myself that question every day,” and those that know me think I’m crazy […]
