Which I love; I am having so much fun with it. The downer is my Tuesday/Thursday class. 8am-10:30am spreadsheets […]

by Joanna May 5, 2014

Well, this school year has definitely had its ups and downs. There were so many memorable moments, and I made lots of great friends.

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.
