Extracurricular

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Leadership and Service Awards put on by the Student Government Association. Every year, SGA puts on a large banquet to honor Fontbonne students and staff and everything that they do for Fontbonne and the Community as a whole. They serve us a fancy dinner and then we get to watch as people accept awards. I got to go and be recognized as an RA on campus, so I got to see everyone who won an award. Everyone who did win something deserved it, and it was so great to see how many wonderful students are on this campus that are committed to Fontbonne and encompassing everything that this school stands for. Congrats to everyone who won, and good luck on finals this week!

I am ready for this semester to be over. This time I had 3 group projects and 2 papers to write. On top of all that I have to study for 3 exams! Fortunately I do not have class this Friday and I am completely finished by next Friday. There is a raffle on Monday and I think that I have a good chance of winning. It is based on the number of seminars that I completed. I figured that most people would blow it off, since you have to commit to it every week. If I win, I will get $500. I deliberately did not make plans for this money because if I don’t win, I’ll just be more disappointed.

Then I have a week off to have fun! On May 12 is when I start my job at Nordstrom. I am going to be a sales associate. I hope that I can do well. I will be making $10 an hour plus commission! That is a lot of money for me since I used to work at McDonalds and get paid $8.75 an hour. I plan on saving a lot of the money that I make this summer and not spending it all.

Fontbonne University is my home Monday through Thursday from August to May. I spend almost all of my week at Fontbonne in the grand scheme of things. Fontbonne is my second home, and I cannot imagine going to another university. I am going to tell you know about my typical day as a Griffin.

7am: Wake up, shower, get ready for the day, eat breakfast.

8am: Leave for school. I am a commuter so it takes me about 45 minutes to drive to school everyday.

9am: Go to my first class

10:15-10:30am: Walk around the Golden Meadow from AB and make my way to my work study location in the Graduate and Professional Studies office in the East Building.

10:30-12pm: I work at my work study office. I love my work study because it allows me to work on campus and do my homework in the office if I need to. The office focuses on school first, but it gives me real world office experience and helps me learn to work well with others and work to get the job done.

12pm: Go to lunch with my friends outside at the DSAC. I spend time with my friends almost every day, and it is important to find time to do fun things with friends, especially as a commuter and with the stress of classes.

12:30-4:30pm: I go to two more classes. I have my first class in the art building and I love that I am able to have all of the classes in different buildings so I can experience all that Fontbonne has to offer. I walk passed the Golden Meadow and I see people eating lunch, students holding events, people playing in the meadow. It is refreshing to see people taking the time for themselves and not freaking out about school and work.

4:30-10pm: Typically, I have work right from school. I work at a small boutique and I like working directly from school. On days that I do not work, I am typically on my way home around 4:30 and have dinner with my family. Then, I may run errands and go to the store. Then, I typically watch some TV and start my homework. On the days I work, I like to have my homework done the day before, or I stay up late. On days I do not work, I have meetings for some of the clubs I am involved in.

11pm: I usually go to bed around 11pm, but sometimes later and I’m thankful when I get to go to sleep a little earlier.

 

Overall, a typical day as a Griffin is pretty great. Come onto campus and maybe you can have a great day as a Griffin, too!!

 

Xoxo,

Claire

Fontbonne Day was last Friday. It occurs one day a year when all of Fontbonne breaks up into groups and goes into various locations to do volunteer work. In the past I did not have a group to go with. This year however, I got inducted into ODK. It is the national honor society for students who are in the top third in their class. Anyway, I got the chance to go with this group this year. Our group when to a local First Baptist Church to do gardening. Me and my friends took out weeds and placed mulch in the garden. Some other people painted the shed. We were rewarded with a delicious lunch afterwards! We had hot dogs, chips, and various desserts. At the end, there was fried chicken! I am glad I participated in this experience!

Feeling Out of Tune?

by Taylor February 19, 2016

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from my time at college, it’s that everyone has really off days. Days where we have no motivation to do anything, and cannot even fathom the thought of getting out of bed, let alone going to class, studying, or going to work. It’s true that most of us have […]
