Organizations, Activities & Events

While I didn’t attend all the events at Homecoming, I got to experience a little slice of it.

On Friday of Homecoming weekend, my sister and I attended Sibling Bingo! My sister is so cool and always down for a good time. When she was in college, she was very involved. I was never as outgoing as she was, but I feel like when she comes to Fontbonne, she gets to see a whole other side of me. I love sharing my Fontbonne experience with her and introducing her to different people from the community, including my rad friends and professors.

I told my sister on our way to bingo that we had one mission, and one mission only: WIN. Of course, everyone at our table (including my skilled sibling) got a bingo, some more than once, except for me. It was still such a fun time and I’m so glad I went.

Now that I’m in a student org, I also got to witness Fall Festival in all it’s glory! On Saturday, I teamed up with President of Students for Life, Sarah, and set up a table along with our other esteemed SFL members. We handed out Fitz’s (a major hit, no surprise) and homemade Peanut Butter Trail Mix Puppy Chow (it was delicious, if I do say so myself). Needless to say, I think it was a success!

I would highly recommend going to Homecoming. Even if you’re busy, consider taking out a little time to have fun. You won’t regret it.

Look outside a window. Are the leaves changing color, perhaps falling; is the weather getting cooler; is time moving back by an hour? It is that time of year again: Autumn! The time when we transition from 12316484_454186251449159_7271167852112954414_nshorts to pants, T-shirts become jackets, and flip flops morph into sneakers or even boots. A lot of people love this time of year. And if you think Autumn looks beautiful here, look at what Autumn looks like in the Netherlands! Now that I have you thinking about file-1Autumn, Fontbonne Enactus will be hosting a Semi-Annual Fall BBQ in the Golden Meadow on Monday Sept. 26th from 11 AM – 12 PM. The event is open to all Students, Faculty, Staff, & Administration. Oh, and did I mention that the event is FREE?! You read correctly: FREE! It is a great way to celebrate the start of Autumn while also enjoying some Food, Drinks, and GREAT Music! Hope to see you all there! Until next time guys, stay classy!

So I’m not going to lie…

…I love pumpkin spice as much as the Cheshire Inn Starbucks apparently does, via this sign.

I’m definitely one of those people that gets very excited when she sees the first Pumpkin Spice item of the season on the shelf at the grocery store. I can personally attest that Starbucks’ PSLs are just as tasty as always. However, in recent years, the trend has gone a tad too far – I mean, pumpkin spice GUM?! (Yes, I actually witnessed this in line to checkout at Schnuck’s yesterday) Maybe we should scale it back a little…

Pumpkin obsession aside, fall is my absolute favorite season – and not just because my birthday is in October 😉 I love the classic fall trends – pumpkin patches, scary movies on TV (Hocus Pocus always), flannels and beanies and skinny jeans tucked into boots. I love haunted houses and corn mazes and apple cider, and the scenery during these months is absolutely breathtaking. Driving through the mountains back home in Tennessee at this time of year used to render me speechless – the radiance of red and yellow and orange scattered throughout the trees is comparable to nothing.

I’m very excited to see what St. Louis has to offer up during the season of Halloween. I’ve heard the Lemp Mansion (http://www.lempmansion.com/hauntedhistory.htm) is a site worth checking out – I’m always on the lookout for spooky adventures. I’ll keep you guys posted (and feel free to comment if you have any suggestions).

Keep moving forward.

xoxo,

Jess

I know that fall is just in a few days, but I am still not ready for it yet. I am really holding on to summer and enjoying the nice weather. I have done some shopping for when it finally does come. I got marshmallow pumpkin latte lotion and a Halloween pumpkin hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works. I don’t drink coffee so I will not be getting the pumpkin latte at Starbucks but I will get the pumpkin frappacino. Sometime this week I will plan all of the Halloween baking that I will do next month. I also hope to go to creepy world with a friend next month. I might be interested in joining Fontbonne for Eckerts on October 7. I love hayrides and fall festivities. Today, my favorite show, Scream Queens, starts. American Horror Story started last week and it’s amazing! I also look forward to the costume party that Fontbonne is having as well as going to a haunted house!

Getting Involved Makes a World of a Difference!!

by Candance September 19, 2016

As an undergrad I was involved with the social work club. I wasn’t able to do as much as I’d like to due to being a non traditional student and having children at home to take care of. But now that my children are a bit older. It’s still a task, but I’m currently a […]

Presidential Goals

by Yuri September 19, 2016

It is 10 AM, I’m walking into the Anheuser-Busch Hall Conference Room with a freshly brewed cup of coffee in my right hand while glancing at my left as it holds an agenda while I prepare for that week’s meeting. Being President of an International Non-Profit Organization has its ups and downs. I have been President for 2 years now […]

My Involvement at Fontbonne

by Patricia September 19, 2016

I think it is safe to say that I am very involved at Fontbonne. Brace yourself! It may seem like a lot, but it is just enough to keep me busy and not too much. I have been on Fontbonne Activities Board (FAB) for 4 years. I help plan major events on campus including homecoming […]

Involvement on Campus

by Anna September 15, 2016

As a commuter student, my life on campus is definitely different from residents.  I am working most evenings, so any events going on at that time are most likely not going to work for my schedule.  Fortunately, Fontbonne still offers plenty of opportunities to be involved during the day and if you are limited on […]

Getting Involved

by Lauren September 15, 2016

This semester has gotten off to a crazy busy start! Summer seems like a distant memory. But I can vividly remember my hopes and goals for the coming fall semester and I am pleased to say that things seem to be on track. Being a commuter, there is a small (and I mean very small) […]
