Except for the weeks I have been traveling, I have successfully managed this task. First I made carmelatas (oat and Carmel bars). Then mostly went to Eckert […]

Fontbonne may be small, but the community isn’t..

by EJ June 9, 2015

When I tell people I go to Fontbonne University, they say “where is that!?” After I tell them the location, they say “oh it’s by The Loop, isn’t it!?” If I had not been from this area, I would have been skeptical with the same questions when thinking about attending FU..

Sweet Donations.

by Cathy March 31, 2015

Campus was busy this week. Sports were played well, events were held, but I want to talk about the sweet side of things. National Student Speech Language Hearing Association held a donation-based bake sale. This was a broke college kid’s dream. The bake sale was simple. Step one, walk up and give what you can. Step […]
