Fall in Saint Louis is a special time. Walking around Forest Park and going to the Cardinal’s games are actually enjoyable and not uncomfortably hot. Walking from class to class outside and getting to feel the fall breeze encourages activity and productivity.
The feeling of fall has already swept over the Fontbonne Campus with classes meeting in the meadow and the quad and students working on projects and homework outside the AMC on a daily basis. The outside seating area of DSAC is filled with students enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner with company and fresh air.
Fall in Saint Louis is a time to be alive and experience all of the great things Saint Louis has to offer, with some milder temperatures. Take a trip to the Zoo or Grant’s farm, go tour the Arch grounds or explore BallPark Village during the cool evening hours.
Fall in Saint Louis is here and I could not be more excited .
Living and going to school in St.Louis definitely has its perks. There are so many things you can do here! So, for the next couple weeks I am going to show you some of my favorite places to visit to escape the stress and homework of college. I hope you consider visiting these places too! Most of them are FREE!
First up is Creve Coeur Lake in Maryland Heights, MO. I am lucky enough to live just a few short minutes from here and took advantage of it during the summer. Here you can rent kayaks, paddleboards, and canoes for just a couple dollars an hour to take out on the lake. You can take the path that goes all the way around the lake to go bike riding or running. If you decide to go on a walk here, make sure to take a camera to take pictures of the waterfalls hidden in the woods, the deer you might encounter, or to capture the sun setting across the lake. It is a great place to escape the city life and release some stress.
Starting my second year at Fontbonne University has been quite different than my first few weeks at Fontbonne last fall. Walking around campus, even more friendly faces and waves across the meadows are a daily occurrence. Hanging out with other students on breaks is a common occurrence just as likely that a quick pick up game is going to happen.
Walks to Forest Park, the Delmar Loop, or just around Clayton have become more common as the summer heat is going away and the fall breeze is kicking in. Afternoon sporting events and FAB events, as well as other on-campus activities, fill the schedules of the busy students of Fontbonne University.
As most of the sophomores at Fontbonne University, classes related to my major consume most of my schedule and extracurricular activities. The importance of maintaining an impeccable GPA and building up professional profiles have been stressed and reemphasized on an almost daily basis. Sophomore year at Fontbonne University has been one for the books thus far, and I look forward to what else is in store.
Awwwww, today was a beautiful day! A day to feel the sun beaming down on your flesh. A day to see the blue skies and white clouds so bright and puffy. A day to feel a slight breeze brush across your face. A day you could have gone to the park and fed the ducks and birds. A day oh, so beautiful!
You can tell when Fall is drawing near! I hope you had a wonderful day, today!
