Accounting

Hello Fellow and Future Griffins

When I started at Fontbonne in 2012 I was determined to be an engineer and wanted to work on roller coasters.  I was in the dual degree program with Fontbonne and Washington University, on my road to becoming the next roller coaster designer.  It was my sophomore year of college before I realized that engineering was not for me.  I was starting to have unhealthy habits such as staying up too late, putting off studying, and even some nightso crying for hours because I was so unhappy.  I was in an accounting class and really liked that so I thought I would try that out.Life-Lessons-From-Engineers-1I switched to Accounting that Spring semester.  I was so excited and knew that accounting would be a great fit for me. I love numbers and I love working on tedious tasks.  So I thought I was set and ready to go, to be happy, to find a career and know what I was going to do forever.  But like all college students, I got bored of that too.  Some students change their major more than once before they find what they want to do.onlyacctsposterThen I started contemplating my life decisions and had a sort of mid-life crisis.  I did not know what I wanted to do, all I knew was that I got the most joy from being Student Government President; I loved trainings, retreats, meetings and all the stuff that comes with being a student leader.  After having intentional conversations with my SGA advisor, I came to the conclusion that a career in Higher Education and Student Affairs was the road I wanted to take.  So I did not have to change my major for this, which was convenient since I was a junior in college already.  I am finishing up my Accounting and Business Administration degree now and have plans to attend graduate school to get my master’s degree.Leadership-quote-01If you can take anything from this blog post please know that you should always follow your dreams.  Changing your major is never a bad decision if it is what is best for you.  You can do whatever you set your mind to.  And last but not least, always follow your heart and chase your dreams.

Hello everyone.  My name is Danielle Ader and I am a senior here at Fontbonne University.  With graduation quickly approaching I cannot wait to spend some of my time writing to all of you about my experiences as a Griffin.  I am an Accounting and Business Administration double major and Student government president.

In deciding where I wanted to go to school I knew I wasn’t ready to move too far from home.  I am from Fenton, Missouri, which is about a half hour south of campus.  I love my home town and I knew I didn’t want to be far away from mom just yet.  Moving to the big city however, has been a huge adjustment even though I wasn’t far to start.  St. Louis has stolen my heart since I was little.  I have enjoyed many things about living here such as: being so close to Busch Stadium (GO CARDINALS), going to the Muny every summer with my mom, and being able to walk to Forest Park.

I knew that Fontbonne was the right place for me the minute I stepped out of the car on my first preview day.  I was so excited and everything here just felt like a family I wanted to be a part of.  My freshman year was amazing and I met so many great people.  As my time here comes to a close I continue to make new friends every single day; I have found my passion and I don’t think that would have happened at any other school.  I know that Fontbonne was the right place for me and I know that it will forever be in my heart.  As May 9th approaches I know that I am going to be sad to leave here but I hope that I won’t ever be far.

If there is one thing I can recommend while you are still in college, it would be to get an internship. An internship allows a student to learn about a desired profession and see if it would be something they could see themselves doing permanently.

I had an internship this past tax season at Kiefer Bonfanti & Co. which is an accounting firm in St. Louis, Missouri. I was very lucky because not only did I get paid for my internship, but I was able to get course credit for it too. Since I am a business administration major, one of the required classes is an internship class. The internship class is a three credit course that requires you to work 150 hours at your internship through the course of your semester. So I was able to use my internship at Kiefer Bonfanti & Co. to fill that class requirement, which was nice.

While interning I got hands-on experience that I couldn’t get in the classroom. I learned so much and am so thankful for being given that opportunity! I had such a great experience!

Where I see myself five, ten, or even fifteen years from now crosses my mind quite frequently. I always wonder if I will accomplish my goals and succeed in my dreams. I think everybody probably wonders that.

Since I am an accounting and business administration student, I plan on stepping foot into the business world. I truly believe it was what I was meant to do in life and can’t picture myself doing anything else. Within the business world, I’m pretty sure I want to enter the tax industry.

The tax industry and just the business world in general has typically been dominated by men. Men have always been thought of as the ones who succeed in that world and they seem to get a lot of the public recognition.

However, women have been making their mark, more and more each year. I, personally, want to be one of those women. I feel like my hard work ethic and personal determination will help me to be a leading woman in the business world. I want to break the stereotype of the “glass ceiling” and know I can!

Sarah-Here to Learn, Not to Dress

by Fontbonne University November 17, 2008

My biggest campus fashion pet peeve would have to be wearing black shoes with a brown belt.  I was informed by a fashion expert that that is not a kosher thing to do.  So now when I see other people wearing an outfit with a belt, I always have to check and see if they […]

Sarah- Can See Herself in Many Fields

by Fontbonne University October 22, 2008

My major is Accounting.  My thought process for this selection was that I wanted to mainly do photography.  So I sat here thinking, “Well I need to go the business route.”  Photography alone has a lot of different costs associated with it.  You must buy the paper to develop the photos on, the chemicals to […]
