Campus Community

Being a Griffin is such an awesome experience.  And everyday is not quite like the other; you meet new friends, are constantly saying hi, and enjoying life and the beauty of campus.  To be a Griffin means to be able to stop and say hello to almost everyone on campus.  A normal day in my life as a Griffin consists of getting out of bed, getting dressed, going to class and being productive for the rest of the day.  Being a Griffin is unlike anything I have ever experienced and if I could do it all over again… I would.

I am a Senior in college…  I am graduating on May 9th…  Am I sad or happy?

All of these are things that I have had on my mind for the last few weeks.  As my time at Fontbonne comes to an end, it is time for me to reflect.

What have I done… What am I doing next… How do I connect the two?

I have donated so much time to the Fontbonne community, through being SGA president to Fontbonne Days for three years. There are so many out there that have still given so much more.  I loved my chapter at Fontbonne and it pains me that this time must come to a close.  I have grown so much as a person here from student government, professors, being a student intern, and even my academic courses.  I am a totally different person than the girl that walked on campus back in 2012.  I am attending Saint Louis University in the Fall to get my masters degree in Student Personnel Administration.  I am going to be in college for the rest of my life (that is what they tell me).  But I plan to have much more of an impact on others than what most people see.  I have always wanted to help people, to grow, to lead, to be more than what they dream they can be.  If it wasn’t for my time at Fontbonne, and those who have helped me grow, I would have never chosen this career for myself.

Who am I now… How is that going to help me… Am I really ready to “Adult”?

I am different, I have changed, I have grown.  I know that I am on the right path.  I have always been told that I can do anything I set my mind to; I believe that to this day.  I can do or be anything I want to be in this world.  I want to help students like myself realize that early; money is not everything in this world.  It does not matter how much money you make if you are in a job that you hate.  Live for what you believe in and do whatever you wish to do.  Someone along the line will support you, and help you to grow into the person that you need to be for the career.

Believe me, this is not the end… It is just a new chapter in the book of my life.  And I cannot wait to see how it reads.

I was lucky enough to participate in Fontbonne Day for my 3rd time this past April.  Fontbonne Day is the one day a year that the entire Fontbonne community gets together and participates in a day of service.  I was fortunate enough to spend my Fontbonne Day with the Fontbonne Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa.  We went to a church and worked to better their garden for the summer.  It was a humbling experience to see how grateful all of the people were that we came to work.

I was so excited to get to commit my day to service with some of my closest friends.  We worked on the garden all day, ate lunch, and went right back to work.  Participating in Fontbonne Day is something I encourage all students on our campus to do because it truly is a life changing experience.

Well Griffins, it looks like we are finally here! It’s finals week, which means we are so very close to being done with the semester and ending another great year at Fonbonne. I can’t help but think about how fast my time at Fontbonne has flown by. I remember my parents dropping me off on my first day at freshman orientation 3 years ago and being so incredibly nervous, and now by the end of this week I’m going to be a senior. My time at Fontbonne so far has been filled with so many incredible memories and experiences, and I can’t help but think about how much I have grown and changed inside and out since I arrived here. I have met some amazing people, learned so much both in my classes and out, and have been exposed to so many wonderful things since I have been here, and as another semester comes to a close, I can’t help but low forward to and be excited for my final few semesters as a Griffin. I hope you all had a wonderful semester and year, and enjoy your summers!

See you later,
Taylor

The time after spring break until the end of school year is almost as bad as the week before spring break. Everyone is getting Spring Fever and the great weather makes everyone want to go get outside and out of the classroom for the summer. With one month of class left before exams, I wanted […]

Best College Advice

by Johnise McKinney April 13, 2016

The best college advice that I can offer is to apply for as many scholarships as you can. When I initially started the college process I hadn’t applied for many scholarships, so my parents had to pay out of pocket which made our financial situation more of a struggle. However, once I started classes and […]

What does Learn More Be More Mean to Me?

by Danielle March 1, 2016

Learn More. Be More. is the catchy Fontbonne slogan that we all know and love.  But what does it really mean, to Learn More and to Be More?  I think this slogan hits home in a lot of different ways for different people.  To me it is all about taking what you learn in classes, […]
