My Favorite Things

by Courtney November 24, 2013

I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m not a big “Sound of Music” fan. It’s a classic – don’t get me wrong – but it’s just a little too “overdone” for me. However, with Thanksgiving upon us, I’d like to talk about a few of my favorite little things in life that simply […]

I’m a Poet

by Courtney November 10, 2013

Last week, while I was looking online for some microbiology information, I saw a blog-style article. Being interested, I clicked on the link to open the article and began reading. I’m a very opinionated person myself, and I respect others’ viewpoints so long as they have backing for those viewpoints, but I definitely didn’t like […]

Try, Try, Try…

by Courtney October 27, 2013

All of my friends know that I absolutely adore music and theatre. (Hence the reason I’m pursuing a theatre minor here at Fontbonne!) However, recently, I’ve become pretty tired of mainstream music. Don’t get me wrong – songs like Katy Perry’s “Roar” and The Wanted’s “Glad You Came” are catchy, but they don’t have a […]

SAVE DUMBO! In Pictures

by Courtney October 27, 2013

As you may have read in one of my previous blogs, the Biological Sciences Organization, or BSO, recently sponsored a SAVE DUMBO! campaign. The BSO purchased eco-friendly, made-in-the-US wristbands that proudly exclaimed, “Save Dumbo! Fontbonne Sustainability.” At least half of the proceeds from the wristband and corresponding bake sale will be donated to a reputable […]

The Cellular Model of Saint Louis

by Courtney October 19, 2013

Back in high school, about a year before I had this huge revelation that I was meant to major in biology instead of in English and communications in college, I had an awesome biology teacher who gave us various fun assignments that were meant to help us figure out major concepts. One such assignment was […]

Perceptions

by Courtney October 12, 2013

It doesn’t seem like there’s that much difference between the phrases “I’m going to be” and “I am.” But, coming from my viewpoint, those phrases couldn’t be more different. Two years ago in one of my theatre classes (because, remember, I’m a theatre minor amidst all of my biology programs), our professor led a discussion […]

SAVE DUMBO!

by Courtney October 12, 2013

You probably haven’t heard much about the Biological Sciences Organization (BSO) yet this year. That’s because we’ve been busy with a lot of event planning. Well, now it’s time for BSO members and the campus community to have a ton of fun! The BSO’s mission is to teach both biology majors and non-majors alike, as […]

Inspiration from a Hot Sauce Packet

by Courtney October 6, 2013

I love inspirational quotes. They bring a smile to my face on a dreary day, they make me laugh, and they remind me to keep believing in myself and progressing toward my life goals. Generally, I find inspiration in quotes from movies, books, plays, and musicals. However, I just recently found an inspirational quote located […]

Worth Every Penny

by Courtney September 24, 2013

I’m not going to lie – whenever I purchase greeting cards, I usually look for the value cards. After all, it’s the thought that counts, right?! However, this past summer, I went into my local Hallmark store in search for the perfect card. Much to my dismay, my favorite Fontbonne professor, Dr. Thomasson, retired. He […]

The weather is saying that fall is soon upon us, classes have been in session for almost a month, and my favorite holiday of the year, Halloween, draws ever closer. This semester is […]
