The Favorites

by Deanna October 28, 2013

Sometimes it is really shocking which classes end up being your favorites. Mine would have to be two that I expected the be the most work, which they were, but they were also the most rewarding courses I have taken so far during my time here at Fontbonne. I have three favorite classes. All of them […]

Take the Time to Appreciate

by Alumni Posts October 23, 2013

When someone asks me what my favorite course has been so far during my time at Fontbonne, I always give the same answer: Music Appreciation. This response has the tendency to baffle people. I took it first semester my freshman year, it’s a Gen Ed class, and it has absolutely nothing to do with my […]

Course at Fontbonne Brings Big Impact

by Alumni Posts October 23, 2013

Which Fontbonne course has made the biggest impact on me so far in my college career? Well, I must say that I’ve had many fantastic courses since my freshman year, but I’m going to have to choose my Art History course. I completed both Art History 1 and 2 my freshman year, and somewhat regret […]

No Dark Sarcasm in the Classroom

by Alumni Posts October 7, 2013

One of the great things about my classroom experience at Fontbonne so far is the opportunities I have been given to get out of the classroom. Whether through practicum experience, a field trip, or even simply attending an on-campus event, the dietetics program at Fontbonne is all about creating a dynamic learning environment. For example, […]

A time to be remembered :)

by Alumni Posts October 2, 2013

Fontbonne University is a place I consider to be my second home. I’ve met countless students and faculty that are now considered some of my closest friends and mentors in life. I’m graduating in December and when looking back on my time spent here so many memories pop into mind. Take moving into the dorms […]

Time Management

by Deanna September 30, 2013

It’s been said before, and it will be said again: “Do as I say, not as I do!” I lead a busy life – I am taking 18 credit hours, I work 25 hours a week, plus usually at least 1 day of babysitting a week, and I try to hang out with my friends […]

Making New Friends

by Alumni Posts September 27, 2013

In all honesty I was scared to come to Fontbonne. Don’t get me wrong I was really excited too, but also scared. I was coming from a town in central Illinois that is significantly smaller then St. Louis. My friends were all going to colleges where at least one if not more people from my […]
