With this past week being Spirit Week at Fontbonne, there have been an abundance of events and activities for students to attend!

This week is Fall Spirit Week at Fontbonne, and the theme is Helium Havoc! This means that everything is balloon-related in some way, shape or form. For example, there are balloons all around campus, they are playing the movie “Up” in the meadow on Friday, and this weekend, there is the Great Forest Park Balloon […]

Stuck in Summer

by Conner September 15, 2014

I know that the academic year has begun, but I can’t help thinking about the summer I just had each day. After class, after this meeting, that practice, that job, all I can seem to do is remember and relive through memories of where I was this summer, thanks to Fontbonne.

by Sara September 11, 2014

I was lucky to meet Dr. Pressimone at the international students dinner on September 4th.

This will be my third semester here at Fontbonne, but it seems like it was just yesterday I was brand new. My first impression of Fontbonne was how easy the transfer process was.  I continue to love the small, accessible size of the campus, and the staff and advisers that are always extremely helpful and […]

She Had Me Sold

by Jordyn September 9, 2014

I didn’t originally plan on attending Fontbonne University. Actually, I wasn’t even sure of what I wanted to do with my life, but I had decided to pursue a degree in Fashion Merchandising or Marketing, and I was determined to find a school where I could complete a degree and get out. I originally chose the […]
