New & Future Students

All of my work as an art major these past 4 years at Fontbonne have culminated in this final event: the senior thesis art show. Time and time again, I was reminded to start early. If you’re an art major (or will be one soon) I highly recommend setting aside time for your own work. This is incredibly difficult considering you most likely have a job and other classwork. It’s very hard to choose between settling in for another night of Netflix or working on your art.

Even though I thought I had given myself adequate time to prepare, it still wasn’t enough. In the long-run, there are just some things that you can’t plan for. Once senior year hit, it was nearly impossible to balance all the things going on in my life and still have time to commit to making works of art that represented me. Now, that being said, many of my classmates were able to pull off his feat with grace. They preserved and exhibited the most beautiful pieces.

I really hope that everyone had a chance to get out and see the show! This is a reminder that there is another gallery opening this Friday from 6-8pm. It features the brilliant work of the MFA and MA students.

I am so fortunate to have landed in such a great department. And that night is one I won’t forget! S/o to my beautiful friends who came to support me.

If you’re considering going into art, I want to encourage you so hard. You gotta go for it. And Fontbonne is the best place to do it.

Thanks to all my amazing professors and mentors–your guidance has been invaluable to me.

The last two week of the semester are the most stressful. Almost as stressful as Finals week itself. Making sure that you have asked off work or organized your time around work and making sure you have everything you need to get all of your projects done, papers written, and studying done for finals. Successful preparing for finals week can make the actual finals much easier and less stressful. By starting early, it is easier to plan out what needs to be done by when so that you can be as successful and possible and not worry about finishing everything or forgetting something. Some tips include:

  • Making a timeline of when you want to work on the final for each class
  • Set a day or time for each class
  • Set a certain portion of each class final for each day
  • Set study breaks
  • Plan in distraction time (we all need a break and sometimes a 30-minute nap can really save you)
  • Get good snacks and drinks when you start studying (sometimes a drink run can turn into too long of a distraction)
  • Set a solid playlist to help you stay focused

Whatever you do, you are going to be successful if you put your mind to it. Good luck and know you are in the home stretch!

Xoxo,
Claire

I moved to St. Louis around six years ago. Before that, I had lived in Indiana, Oklahoma, Illinois, Colorado, Wisconsin, and Kentucky. Even though each place has had their own feel and culture, St. Louis has always surprised me with its spunk, heritage, and overall feel.

St. Louis has an interesting image. It is a big city and considers itself to be. However, the city often feels separate from other cities such as Chicago or New York. It is often overlooked and overshadowed. Living here for a while though, I have realized how underrated St. Louis is and why it shouldn’t be.

First of all, St. Louis is one of the best foodie cities in America. This may come as a surprise to people, but St. Louis has a great selection of food from all over the world. Wallethub placed St. Louis as the 7th best foodie city in America in 2016. Even after living here for several years, I am always finding new and exciting restaurants all across the city. There are Bosnian restaurants, unique ice cream shops, and much more.

St. Louis also values its entertainment industry. It is not hard to not walk around St. Louis without seeing the Cardinals or Blues logo at least once. St. Louis also loves its musicians. This is clear to see by seeing the flowers and gifts left at the Chuck Berry statue on the Delmar Loop. You mention Nelly and people freak out.

St. Louis has a men’s fashion week, Forest Park (which is bigger than Central Park), the Muny. St. Louis has a beautiful City garden, a sculpture park, and much more. St. Louis is an artistic city, and most people don’t realize it.

St. Louis has been a great place to live. Whether you are moving here for a job or college, St. Louis is a great place to move to. It has a unique culture and history that makes it a fantastic place.101-HAS1-StLouisNight

When you go to college, keep this in mind:  the breaks are a lie.

You’ll rarely get a homework-free break.  Even if the teacher gives you an assignment that wouldn’t be due until a month later, that still puts pressure on you.  It plants a nagging seed in your brain that bugs you, whispering, “You should be working on meeeee~.”

Just wanted to throw that out there so that some of you would develop better time-management skills than I have.

My View on the Fontbonne Mission

by Jessica February 8, 2017

Well, before I begin my statement, I think it is best to give y’all a little rundown of the Fontbonne Mission. Fontbonne was founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, a group of Catholic nuns that had immigrated to St. Louis from France. They sought to teach their students the common good and […]

Somethin’ funny happened yesterday morning…

by Jessica February 2, 2017

Depending on the situation, being a college student is a bit like a weight-lifter. Most of the students here at Fontbonne live on campus. That means that they are fortunate enough to keep most of their stuff five minutes away from their classrooms. However, if you are a commuter, like me, you are carrying everything […]

Rise and Shine!

by Yuri November 15, 2016

It’s 7:30 AM. Wake up, get ready for the day, and walk out the door by 8:45 AM (regardless of what time my class starts: 9:30 or 10). Here is the reason why – TRAFFIC! For those that live on campus, it is a luxury that the campus is small. You have the ability to […]
