New & Future Students

I got involved my freshman year at Fontbonne in the student government association.  I was lucky enough to be selected to serve on the executive board, which as a freshman doesn’t happen often.  I was so excited to assume my role as I had always wanted to be on student council in high school.  I hit the ground running and help the position of VP of Finance for 2 consecutive years.

Student Government Association (SGA) is a great organization on campus that is the voice for the entire student body.  I got to serve as a reference point between other organizations on campus and the general board of SGA.  I got to talk to many different students and keep track of a running budget.  This are great skills to have.  After my time as VP of Finance was coming to an end during my second year I chose to run for President of the organization.

Since then I have served in the roll of President.  It has been two years since then and I have grown so much as a person in that time.  Getting involved in an organization was the best decision I have ever made.  I have grown and thrived as a person since I have been involved.  I learned how to push out of my comfort zone and to care more about others than myself.

Everyone should get involved during their time at Fontbonne.  Whether it is in SGA, the activities board or even the service organizations on campus.

Being a Griffin is such an awesome experience.  And everyday is not quite like the other; you meet new friends, are constantly saying hi, and enjoying life and the beauty of campus.  To be a Griffin means to be able to stop and say hello to almost everyone on campus.  A normal day in my life as a Griffin consists of getting out of bed, getting dressed, going to class and being productive for the rest of the day.  Being a Griffin is unlike anything I have ever experienced and if I could do it all over again… I would.

I am a Senior in college…  I am graduating on May 9th…  Am I sad or happy?

All of these are things that I have had on my mind for the last few weeks.  As my time at Fontbonne comes to an end, it is time for me to reflect.

What have I done… What am I doing next… How do I connect the two?

I have donated so much time to the Fontbonne community, through being SGA president to Fontbonne Days for three years. There are so many out there that have still given so much more.  I loved my chapter at Fontbonne and it pains me that this time must come to a close.  I have grown so much as a person here from student government, professors, being a student intern, and even my academic courses.  I am a totally different person than the girl that walked on campus back in 2012.  I am attending Saint Louis University in the Fall to get my masters degree in Student Personnel Administration.  I am going to be in college for the rest of my life (that is what they tell me).  But I plan to have much more of an impact on others than what most people see.  I have always wanted to help people, to grow, to lead, to be more than what they dream they can be.  If it wasn’t for my time at Fontbonne, and those who have helped me grow, I would have never chosen this career for myself.

Who am I now… How is that going to help me… Am I really ready to “Adult”?

I am different, I have changed, I have grown.  I know that I am on the right path.  I have always been told that I can do anything I set my mind to; I believe that to this day.  I can do or be anything I want to be in this world.  I want to help students like myself realize that early; money is not everything in this world.  It does not matter how much money you make if you are in a job that you hate.  Live for what you believe in and do whatever you wish to do.  Someone along the line will support you, and help you to grow into the person that you need to be for the career.

Believe me, this is not the end… It is just a new chapter in the book of my life.  And I cannot wait to see how it reads.

If I could give any advice to the pre-Fontbonne me I would definitely tell her to not stress so much.  Understand that you cannot be in control of absolutely everything in life.  I would also tell myself that I was going to end up a planner and that was going to be tough for me because I cannot control everything.  I did not know this as a freshman coming into college and if I could prep myself for that I know I would not have stressed so much when I did not have control.

I would also tell myself to actually go to class.  Even though I thought I did not need to and that I was free from mom and dad I was not a genius.  I would tell myself to get up out of bed even if I had the worst headache.  Unless I was vomiting or unable to move I should have gone to classes all the time.

Another piece of advice I would give myself is to not sleep so often.  Although taking naps always felt amazing, I was only hurting friendship and wasting time to spend with those friends I had made.

The last piece of advice I would give is to attend the Freshman orientation.  I would have made so many friends much quicker and would not have struggled so much in my first year.  I skipped my orientation and although I made many friends here at Fontbonne, it was not without challenge.

Go to orientation, Go to class, and DO NOT sleep so much!
