One of my latest experiences at Fontbonne was teaching a Sports Nutrition lesson to the Lacrosse players at Fontbonne University. Initially, I though this was way out of my comfort zone. After the experience, I found out that it was completely painless! Although public speaking has never been my strong suit, I loved the confidence I gained from jumping past this hurdle. I truly appreciate that the classes I take at Fontbonne give me a positive push in the right direction, even if it feels scary at first.
Next fall, I am collaborating with another dietetics student at Fontbonne to create a grant proposal for a nutrition education program for athletes on the Fontbonne campus. Fingers crossed! Here’s a little Pinterest inspiration for anyone who’s pushed past their comfort zone these past few weeks, and anyone that needs a little encouragement this week. Also, if you’d like to check out my website with my lesson plans on Sports Nutrition, it will be up and finished by this weekend! Click here!
It has been a long semester, but we all survived, didn’t we?
Best of luck in the Spring! Happy Holidays!
Last week, I discussed Inauguration Week events. I promised I would post pictures as the events unfolded. And here they are! I am extremely pleased with how successful everything went.
Dr. Mike Pressimone is now officially the 14th president of Fontbonne University. This is an occasion that will go down in history, and I was very glad to be a part of it. The ceremony on Friday in which he gave his Inaugural Address was outstanding, and made me even more proud to call myself a Griffin. The ball on Saturday was the perfect way to celebrate the end of the week. It is so much to get dressed up for formal occasions. The ball was at the Science Center, where there was an amazing view as you walked along the bridge for pictures, delicious food, and fun music. It was so nice seeing students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the Pressimone family all come together for a special evening together.
Here’s to a great new beginning for the Fontbonne community!

What an eventful week these past seven days have been! This past week was dedicated to our new university president, Dr. Pressimone. The week was filled with lectures, panels, Dr. Pressimone’s official inauguration, investiture receptions, a fall festival, and a ball to end the week and celebrate the inauguration on Saturday.
My favorite event by far was the inaugural ball on Saturday. It was held at the Science Center just a few minutes from school. The ball was held in a private reception area that was decorated beautifully! Staff, faculty, students, staff, alumni, and the Pressimone clan were all in attendance and everyone seemed to have a great time! There were appetizers, a dance floor, a dj, and a photo booth complete with fun props! I don’t think anyone will forget the fun they had that night!
The week as a whole was definitely one for the books! Not only was it an important part for Fontbonne history, but a week long celebration of fun!
This week Fontbonne University officially welcomed Dr. Pressimone as the fourteenth president of the university. Many events took place throughout the week, the final one being the Inaugural Ball. The Inaugural Ball took place at the St. Louis Science Center including the long skyway that goes across I-64E. The event included a mashed potato bar, a photo booth, and plenty of dancing! This was an event to celebrate Dr. Pressimone and his family and conclude the inauguration week. The event was vlassy one open to students, staff, faculty, and friends and family. It was such a blast! The DJs played a wide variety of songs and the dance floor was constantly crowded! The event was very class and overall a great end to a great week!
