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!

4th of July

by Patricia on July 15, 2016

This 4th of July was lots of fun! On Friday we visited our cousin in Wisconsin. We went to her house and had a BBQ. She has a 2-year-old son that was very outgoing. The hotel was nice too. It had a big pool and French toast and cinnamon rolls for breakfast. The next day we went to see my cousin and aunt in Chicago. We went to her house and she had a nice lunch planned for us. Then went went downtown and explored the city and went to an Asian restaurant called Joyee. We also visited the Palmer house which is a very luxurious hotel. We got to ride the L (train) to the city. It had 100 different drinks. I had a pomegranate icee with ice cream. The next day we swam at the beach during the day and watched fireworks at night.

My aunt’s house is over 100 years old. It was made for little people. The ceiling is really low, I had to bend over several times. The bathrooms are very small and the stairs are very hard to walk up. The stairs are smaller than your feet. If you walk up too fast, you will fall. In the backyard there is a door like the house from the wizard of oz. It is slanted from the ground and props open, leading to the basement. This was originally a farm house but it’s not anymore. Now its in the middle of the city!

Change is Coming!

by Taylor on April 27, 2016

in Uncategorized

Hi everyone! I just went to a meeting where I learned some really awesome stuff for all of you future griffins! Within the next 2 years, we are going to be getting some new residence halls on Fontbonne’s campus! At the meeting, current residents from every building and year were able to meet with the architects that are designing the halls so that we could tell them what we currently liked about the our current residence halls and what we wanted to change. Everyone threw around a lot of great ideas for new halls, like adding more study and leisure spaces for students, adding a new fitness center, putting rec/game rooms in every building, and updating our laundry facilities. It will take a little while to know exactly what is coming, but the planning has begun! This is exciting news for all future griffins, as these changes will affect all of the incoming classes. While I will not personally be here to see the new dorms, I am happy that Fontbonne is getting some much needed updates that can only improve our campus.

What kinds of changes are you interested in seeing in our residence halls?

I am not a St. Louis native. I spent the first 16 years of my life living throughout the Kansas City metro area. After my freshman year in high school, I moved to St. Louis with my mom and brother. I had never driven more than around the block when I moved to St. Louis and in my new home in bustling “South City” I had a daunting task in front of me when it came to learning how to drive. After a couple of times of going around the neighborhood, my stepfather’s dad told me to turn onto Grand Blvd., a main street. Once I was outside of the neighborhood I had no clue of where I was anymore and I was now surrounded by other drivers. My stepfather’s dad told me where and when to turn. Basically driving blind throughout South City I began to notice how immensely confusing it was. After this pivotal driving lesson, I earned my driving license and began to hit the roads every day. I was fascinated with how thorough the city of St. Louis was and was extremely inclined to go exploring. Most days after school, I would go exploring throughout the city on my own. I got lost a number of times but always managed to find my way back home without any GPS or directions. Throughout high school I met a variety of people who lived in every stretch of the St. Louis metropolitan area. I had been to Wellston, Old North City, Kirkwood, Northwoods, Lemay, The Grove, Dittmer, Ferguson, Ladue, Ritenour, Clayton and Downtown so I was convinced that I had a good majority of the city memorized like the back of my hand by the end of high school.

Once high school ended, I began to not have much interest in exploring new places anymore. Once you do something a couple of times it can begin to seem a little monotonous and not be that exciting anymore.  Now that I go to school and work in Clayton I have been stuck in this community primarily for the past 7 months. About a month ago my friends and I were sitting in my dorm room with friends and we were bored out of our minds with nothing to do on a Friday night. It was about midnight and I could tell most of us were ready to call it a night. Finally I decided that maybe it would be a good time to go out and explore a bit for the first time in what felt like forever. However, there wasn’t a whole lot left for me to explore from all the exploring I did in high school on my own. I began to take my friends around the city and soon realized the more places we visited they became even more interested in our journey. Some of my friends were not from St. Louis so it was a little obvious they would take interest in their new surroundings but even those who were from the area were still as interested as those not native. I asked one of them if they had been out exploring since coming to Fontbonne and astonishingly he responded with, “No, this is the first time I’ve been outside of Clayton.” I was amazed by this. He even had a car too. Our adventures that night stretched from the Mississippi River to Tower Grove to the Central West End. We stayed out exploring until 5 the next morning. At our final stop at a 24/7 coffee shop, my friends kept telling me how great of a time they had going out and seeing new places. I had a great time too. Even though I had been to the places that we went to that night, it was a whole new experience getting to feed off of the excitement from my friends.

Focusing on the Positive

by Alumni Posts November 20, 2015

I know from experience that it’s easy to get caught up in the stress of everyday life. From this, we tend to focus on all the negatives that we perceive are out to get us, when truthfully we have so much to be thankful for. A professor once gave me a bit of advice that […]

Recommended readings: Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl

by Fontbonne University November 4, 2015

Disclaimer: Don’t worry, I will try not to spoil. Though this book is really famous, I believe that there are still a lot of people have not read it. I, too, once thought that the work was too mainstream, so I refrained from reading it. However, as I was browsing through the “50 best quotes […]
