Fall in the Lou

by Jessica October 23, 2015

In St. Louis, the fall season is perfect for enjoying cool days and a nice breeze. I enjoy spending my time playing basketball in the park because the weather is perfect. It’s not too hot outside and not to cold either! I also enjoy visiting haunted houses at night around Halloween because it’s a wee […]

Autumn Drives

by Rebecca October 23, 2015

My favorite thing to do in the fall is taking a drive through the country side. Nothing says fall like being surrounded by colorful trees, the open road, and empty fields. My family grew up in Washington, MO so frequent trips were taken down backroads to see family. It was the most wonderful thing putting […]

Fontbonne is the school located in the third country that I’ve spent my studying “career”. I went through primary and secondary schools […]

by Rebecca October 8, 2015

So if you’re a senior like myself and are considering going to graduate school to continue your education in whatever field you’d like, you probably haven’t had a whole lot of direction.  One of my professors just came to one of my classes on Monday to talk about it and didn’t even answer all the […]

Why did I choose Fontbonne?

by Quinn September 17, 2015

There were a number of factors that went into account of my decision to choose to attend Fontbonne University. First, let me say the one reason why I almost didn’t come to Fontbonne. I simply thought it was too close to home. Growing up I lived in a Kansas City suburb for the first 15 […]

Super Power

by Patricia August 3, 2015

If I had to choose what super power I would have, it would be to fly. It would be so much fun to go in the sky really high and speed through the trees. I wouldn’t need a car and wouldn’t have to sit in traffic. In fact, I wouldn’t need to go in an […]
