Campus Community

While I didn’t attend all the events at Homecoming, I got to experience a little slice of it.

On Friday of Homecoming weekend, my sister and I attended Sibling Bingo! My sister is so cool and always down for a good time. When she was in college, she was very involved. I was never as outgoing as she was, but I feel like when she comes to Fontbonne, she gets to see a whole other side of me. I love sharing my Fontbonne experience with her and introducing her to different people from the community, including my rad friends and professors.

I told my sister on our way to bingo that we had one mission, and one mission only: WIN. Of course, everyone at our table (including my skilled sibling) got a bingo, some more than once, except for me. It was still such a fun time and I’m so glad I went.

Now that I’m in a student org, I also got to witness Fall Festival in all it’s glory! On Saturday, I teamed up with President of Students for Life, Sarah, and set up a table along with our other esteemed SFL members. We handed out Fitz’s (a major hit, no surprise) and homemade Peanut Butter Trail Mix Puppy Chow (it was delicious, if I do say so myself). Needless to say, I think it was a success!

I would highly recommend going to Homecoming. Even if you’re busy, consider taking out a little time to have fun. You won’t regret it.

Look outside a window. Are the leaves changing color, perhaps falling; is the weather getting cooler; is time moving back by an hour? It is that time of year again: Autumn! The time when we transition from 12316484_454186251449159_7271167852112954414_nshorts to pants, T-shirts become jackets, and flip flops morph into sneakers or even boots. A lot of people love this time of year. And if you think Autumn looks beautiful here, look at what Autumn looks like in the Netherlands! Now that I have you thinking about file-1Autumn, Fontbonne Enactus will be hosting a Semi-Annual Fall BBQ in the Golden Meadow on Monday Sept. 26th from 11 AM – 12 PM. The event is open to all Students, Faculty, Staff, & Administration. Oh, and did I mention that the event is FREE?! You read correctly: FREE! It is a great way to celebrate the start of Autumn while also enjoying some Food, Drinks, and GREAT Music! Hope to see you all there! Until next time guys, stay classy!

Fall in Saint Louis is a special time. Walking around Forest Park and going to the Cardinal’s games are actually enjoyable and not uncomfortably hot. Walking from class to class outside and getting to feel the fall breeze encourages activity and productivity.

The feeling of fall has already swept over the Fontbonne Campus with classes meeting in the meadow and the quad and students working on projects and homework outside the AMC on a daily basis. The outside seating area of DSAC is filled with students enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner with company and fresh air.

Fall in Saint Louis is a time to be alive and experience all of the great things Saint Louis has to offer, with some milder temperatures. Take a trip to the Zoo or Grant’s farm, go tour the Arch grounds or explore BallPark Village during the cool evening hours.

Fall in Saint Louis is here and I could not be more excited .

Homecoming is a special time in both high school and college. However, the two are extremely different and students experience the two completely differently as well.

Homecoming in high school involved lots of prep for a pep rally, last minute running around and trying to memorize cheer routines, football plays, chants, and school spirit permeates. The biggest highlight is the homecoming football game and the infamous homecoming dance.

In college, school spirit is seen on campus everyday and chant wars cover sororities and fraternities as well as through various clubs. However, the best part of homecoming in college is having family members come visit and alumni coming back to watch sporting events and participate in other activities that are all over the campus. Family makes their first trip back up to campus and seeing family and friends come to visit makes seeing them all the more special and a great reason to show off your school.

The main point of homecoming in any university or high school is to have students come back to remember their time. More collegiate alumni come back to retrace their steps, visit old students, and reconnect with old professors.

No matter if you are celebrating your last homecoming in high school or you first in college, coming together and spreading school spirit and love makes all the work and effort worth it in the end.

Involvement on Campus

by Anna September 15, 2016

As a commuter student, my life on campus is definitely different from residents.  I am working most evenings, so any events going on at that time are most likely not going to work for my schedule.  Fortunately, Fontbonne still offers plenty of opportunities to be involved during the day and if you are limited on […]

American Flags Covering Art Hill

If anyone has been on Snapchat the last week or so, you have probably seen the flags that are on Art Hill in Forest Park in Saint Louis. Over 7,000 flags have been placed in Forest Park to honor the lives of 7,000 fallen soldiers from wars from Afghanistan and Iraq and never made it back […]

Year Two at Fontbonne University

by Claire September 15, 2016

Starting my second year at Fontbonne University has been quite different than my first few weeks at Fontbonne last fall. Walking around campus, even more friendly faces and waves across the meadows are a daily occurrence. Hanging out with other students on breaks is a common occurrence just as likely that a quick pick up […]

A Second Home

by Yuri September 13, 2016

Picture this for a second: in about a week from now, we will be a month into the Fall semester! To some of you, Fontbonne is like any other University. You wake up, go to class, maybe participate in a sport or two; then at the end of the day, go back to your dorm […]

Back at FBU for Round Two!

by Courtney September 6, 2016

Even though this is my third year of college, this is only my second semester at Fontbonne.  I previously attended Truman State University as an English Education major. But, I soon realized I wanted to get into the health field and found myself fascinated with dietetics. I chose Fontbonne not only because of their beautiful […]
