Valentine’s Day

by Kristen February 12, 2014

As you all probably know by now, Valentine’s Day is this Friday.  For many people, Valentine’s Day is a chance to show loved ones you are thinking about them.  For others, Valentine’s Day is a bitter reminder that they have no one to share the special day with.  For me, the end of Valentine’s Day [...]

Recycle ALL the Things

by Marielle February 10, 2014

Remember how I said I was Environmental Club president? Well, it’s time to get back on my game and start shamelessly promoting some events. First, we have our annual Recyclemania campaign running from February 2nd – March 29th, so there will be periodic trivia and prizes for that.  Recyclemania is basically a nationwide competition for [...]

Music to My Ears

by Deanna February 6, 2014

I have never met a person who’s just like “You know, I really hate music. Can’t stand listening to it!” Everyone loves some kind of music! For me, music is almost always a constant. At work we have it on in the store, and in the kitchen. I have it on in my car (often [...]

A Love Letter to Track & Field.

by Carly February 5, 2014

Last weekend I found myself watching excitedly as super speedy, super fit, super awesome runners ran circles around me at my very first indoor track meet, which I attended as a spectator thanks to a never-ending foot injury that’s kept me from running since October. Anyhow, I personally enjoy just going and watching meets because [...]

Love Nest in AB

by Carlyn February 5, 2014

Last semester I was in a visual merchandising class. Throughout the semester, the entire class was in charge of building the window displays in Anheuser-Busch (AB) Hall (there are three different ones). It was a lot of fun to come up with a creative idea, and then see that image come to life. I didn’t [...]

My Taste In Music, You Ask? Get Ready!

by Elizabeth February 4, 2014

Fun fact about me and music: I love it, and I like making it (I sing in the school a cappella club and the Friday Mass choir and play the uke in my spare time)… but I sure can’t study with it! And that’s been a tough reality to face this semester.  Even though I [...]

And So It Begins

by Conner January 29, 2014

Two weeks down, fourteen to go. This has become my countdown, and it is yet still early in the semester. I absolutely love my “busier than busy” lifestyle here at Fontbonne, but coffee and caffeinated teas have become my best friends. This week, I was particularly busy with one of my favorite and most recent [...]

New Year, New Me.

by Marki January 24, 2014

I know I am extremely late with the whole “new year” posts, but now I finally have time to share about how things are going to be different for me in 2014. I have coined 2014 the year of work. From working in my classes to working in the theatre, this year I am becoming [...]
