Hula Hooping in the Meadow

by Katie April 7, 2015

  It’s impossible not to love the recent weather we’ve been experiencing this last week!  I’m thankful it’s finally Spring and, overall, the weather is going to be warmer for a while.  This week I had a chance to get out in Golden Meadow with my friend Natalie and learn a few tricks with hula […]

French Toast Love!

by Katie March 31, 2015

This semester I’m taking a class called Experimental Foods.  In that class, we choose an “alternative” style recipe to work with the entire semester to perfect.  For example, instead of mac n’ cheese-  dairy free mac n’ cheese or low sugar brownie made with black beans instead of a regular brownie. In my group, we […]

Small School in the Big City

by Abby March 31, 2015

The great thing about Fontbonne University is that it provides the comfort and close-knit feeling of a small school but is placed amongst a busy and bustling city. The small size of Fontbonne allows for small staff to student ratios as well as a community that truly cares about what is best for you. At the […]

Spring Cleaning Time

by Dani March 25, 2015

Spring is in the air! Even with the ups and downs of the weather (not so surprising for March in St. Louis), evidence of spring can be seen everywhere. The grass is looking greener, trees have buds on them, early flowers have started to bloom, and every store is touting their spring wares. Another seasonal […]

History Behind Easter Egg Hunts

by Patricia March 24, 2015

One year ago at this time I wrote a 5 page paper on the history behind Easter egg hunts for my religious studies class. Since Easter is almost here I thought I would share some information. Believe it or not, Easter eggs and the Easter bunny all originate from different parts of the world. But […]

80 Degrees in March!

by Abby March 16, 2015

This past week was Fontbonne’s spring break- a chance to take a break from the craziness of classes, exams, and meetings and have some down time. For my spring break, I made the road trip home back to Minnesota! I was able to see my sisters, my parents, and visit my friends at nearby schools. […]

Fangirl Frenzy

by Carlyn March 16, 2015

Anyone that knows me knows that I am an extreme fangirl. This means that I have many celebrities that I am a huge fan of (and probably take that fandom to the next level), and tend to talk about those people a lot. And I mean a lot. It can also mean that you buy […]

Last weekend marked a significant point for the Fontbonne University Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership honor society. I assisted in chartering the organization to campus last year, and currently serve as circle President.

Dancing Through Life

by Conner March 11, 2015

The weekend before last marked a significant date in my dance career. It was the last time I “took the stage” as a Griffin Girl. I’ve been on the dance team at Fontbonne for three years. During my freshman year here, I made the mistake to not partake in any extracurricular activities, and forewent what […]

Three Day Weekends

by Isabella March 9, 2015

In three days, I’ve been able to emerge from my shell of my residence hall and venture into the artistic delights of St. Louis. On Friday, March 6th, on a whim, I was driving back to campus when I suddenly decided I should pop by the St. Louis Art Museum. After all, on Fridays, they […]
