With campus tours on the upswing and prospective students checking out everything that Fontbonne has to offer, it reminded me of my first campus tour.

by Linh 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 […]

Why I Have a Love/Hate Relationship with Black Friday
