She pauses before I dramatically respond “A Vinyl Record!” I laugh as I see her anxious expression change to one of slight dissapointment and humor. I was riding the bus when I noticed it- a man obsessing over his ‘new’ purchase. He [...]

by Abby Towle September 19, 2014

This week is Fall Spirit Week at Fontbonne, and the theme is Helium Havoc! This means that everything is balloon-related in some way, shape or form.

So here’s the story from A to Z…

by Cathy September 19, 2014

Armed with a piano, a voice, and a full arsenal of popular songs, dueling pianos was a campus success.
