And So It Begins

Two weeks down, fourteen to go. This has become my countdown, and it is yet still early in the semester. I absolutely love my “busier than busy” lifestyle here at Fontbonne, but coffee and caffeinated teas have become my best friends.

This week, I was particularly busy with one of my favorite and most recent involvements, Omicron Delta Kappa. ODK is a national leadership honor society. After being chartered last semester, we are more than excited to start participating as an established organization on campus.

To help promote ourselves to students, we set up at the Activities Fair this week to provide everyone with a little information of what we’re all about. ODK also has a Facebook page! You can check it out by following this link: https://www.facebook.com/FontbonneODK. We post daily, with #MotivationMonday, #TriviaTuesday, #WebArticleWednesday, #ThrowbackThursday, and #FBUODKFanFriday.

Omicron Delta has many events planned for this semester, including an “End the R Word” campaign, Service Day project, and a collaboration with Student Government Association with the Last Lecture series.

FBUODK at the Activities Fair!

Let the semester begin! It’s going to be a struggle, but why not tackle everything now while I’m still young? Deep breathing, caffeine, and support from my family and very best friends are all a girl needs to get through anything!

Thanks for reading..

If you happen to have a Griffin Scratch planner, you may notice that every once in a while it mentions something called “Griffin Games”, usually listed as happening in the DSAC ‘caf at noon. Griffin Games are short contests or games that are put on by FAB (the Fontbonne Activities Board), and there are always prizes for the winners. They pop up at places other than DSAC as well – there were some at the Activities Fair at the beginning of the year, and also some for Spirit Week last week.

Last year, when I was but a naive freshman, I wasn’t even quite sure what these Griffin Games were. I did eventually figure it out, but since I never eat in DSAC, I never managed to find myself over there when they were happening. THIS WAS A HUGE OVERSIGHT ON MY PART. Anyone who knows me knows that: A. I am a very competitive person. B. I always play to win. C. I love free stuff.

Therefore, I have made it my goal this year to attend every single Griffin Game that I possibly can. So far, I have participated in blindfold musical buckets during the Activities Fair (I went hardcore and won a $15 iTunes card), a balloon stomping game, and most recently bingo. I’m sure there are more, too, but since I didn’t win anything they are of course insignificant in my memory.

So I encourage you to make Griffin Games a part of your life! Usually they are more or less games of luck, so everyone has a chance to be a winner! …AND THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN WINNING.
