Why I love St. Louis

Its a bird! Its a plane! No wait, is that a balloon?!

by Sarah October 3, 2014

As I browsed through my various social media accounts during multiple homework breaks, I noticed so many photos from the balloon race a few weekends ago.  Sadly I was unable to participate in the festivities myself though compared to last year, my experience was quite the opposite.  Last year I entered a contest/drawing to have […]

The Guide to STL: From a Non-St. Louisan

by Cathy September 29, 2014

Coming from a suburb of Chicago, where the hottest hang out was a park (with a twisty slide!), I found St. Louis exciting. Everything felt new and fresh, I could even walk to places! That being said, I want to tell you the best things to do here — and there’s a lot. So, my […]

Little City, Big Perks.

by Corie September 24, 2014

The only city I have ever known is Chicago, which is HUGE. So, when I came to live in St. Louis 2.5 years ago I didn’t know where outside of Fontbonne I could call home. A place where I could go every week to distress from school and life in general. A little over a […]

My Favorite Things About Saint Louis

by Katie September 24, 2014

Despite the fact that I was born in Saint Louis and grew up only 45 minutes from the city (on the Illinois side), I never really got to know Saint Louis until I started at Fontbonne. After adjusting to transferring to Fontbonne, I started to explore Saint Louis more than I had before.  I’ve finally […]
