Getting My Zen On

by Courtney April 19, 2014

I’ve said many times before in my blogs that I’m not athletic. And, honestly, I’m okay with that. However, that being said, I’ve always wanted to take part in one of Fontbonne’s fitness classes. The classes generally cost about $10 per six- or eight-week session, so they are well within the “poor college student” budget. […]

by Marielle March 25, 2014

Holy cats, spring break is over already. Or was it winter break? With the weather being as unpredictable as it is, sometimes it’s hard to tell. Regardless, I’m sure the rest of the school year will fly by.  But wait! It’s not over quite yet. We haven’t had the Environmental Fair yet. I write about […]

Concert Countdowns

by Carlyn March 25, 2014

I admit, I am absolutely obsessed with pop culture, especially musicians. I enjoy listening to live music, especially if the singer is considered a celebrity.

Girl Power.

by Carly February 21, 2014

by Marielle February 18, 2014
