I know I have talked about this before but I am so happy to be apart of the FOCUS family this year. From the meetings and the bonding that we have already started doing I just know that we have a great group this year. Me and the other leaders are totally invested in making […]

The Seaweed is Always Greener

by Alumni Posts April 28, 2014

One of the things I like best about Fontbonne, and I’m sure I’ve said this many times before, is how easy it is to get involved in things.  And not just get involved, but dominate.  Perhaps this sounds negative, but I’ve always felt that Fontbonne provides a perfect “big fish in a little pond” atmosphere, […]

Working in College

by Joanna April 28, 2014

Working in college is a kind of debated topic. Some people say you should focus on school, that college is a big change in your life and you need to take it one step at a time. Others say you should work as much as you can. I think the answer is somewhere in the […]

SpringFest was the Best!

by Joanna April 28, 2014

Yesterday I had the chance to go to my first Fontbonne SpringFest! It was probably one of the best events Fontbonne has had this year. There were two blow ups – a wrecking ball and a velcro wall. The velcro wall was actually kind of painful because my hair kept sticking to my velcro suit, […]

A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (JK, I’m Talking About COLLEGE)

by Alumni Posts April 7, 2014

If I were to give a new student advice on how to survive college, the first word that would come out of my mouth is, “God.” It is crucial to have a backbone of faith – in something. By having faith in our Lord, you will have more faith in yourself. When you have more […]

Speech Therapy Observation

by Joanna March 24, 2014

This week I had the opportunity to meet with a private practitioner speech therapist. She talked with me about all the different places she has worked as a speech-language pathologist, and even let me observe a therapy session! I was super stoked because this was the first time I got to watch a therapy session […]

Supernatural

by Alumni Posts March 24, 2014

A lot of our values growing up have been shaped by movies and television and I’m not ashamed to admit it. This spring break, I’ve been catching up on a TV show called “Supernatural.” It’s about two brothers that fight evil forces in the world. The show is funny, graphic, and full of cool visual effects, […]

Dress for Success.

by Marki March 3, 2014

What does it truly mean to dress for success? Now that I am talking an interpersonal communication class I get to explore what this truly means. When it comes to meeting people in regular social interactions to serious job interviews, your clothes are always communicating something. Are you trying to show you are a young […]

Why Speech Path?

by Sarah March 3, 2014

For me, Speech-Language Pathology (SLP)  just made sense.  In high school I had been looking into majoring in something in the category of the medical field.  But I didn’t want to be a doctor or a nurse.  For a while I was thinking of going into Physical Therapy but that just didn’t seem quite right […]

Be outgoing.. Be you

by Alumni Posts February 21, 2014

To all the new students struggling to fit in… Don’t struggle anymore. Just be yourself. There is only one of you so you might as well be it. Do not be afraid to be outspoken and say what is on your mind. If you never branch out and talk to people then your college experience […]
