Over the weekend, my friends and I took a break from studying and took some pictures on the snow!!

Even though it was freezing cold we managed to take great pictures of Fontbonne.

Stay warm!

Study Time

by Kristen on November 25, 2013

in Academics,College Life

As we’re nearing final exams, the pressure to finish projects and start studying begins to increase.  I always begin to see more students hiding out in corners of campus, preparing for tests.  I know finals can be a stressful time, and we don’t always like to think about them this early.  But eventually, we have to face the facts—exams are coming up soon, and we must start preparing.

Personally, my favorite study location is the desk inside my dorm room.  I feel least distracted when I can shut my door to the outside world and force myself to focus on course material; I can’t study in noisy places or with people present (because I talk to people instead of studying . . . oops).  However, sometimes I do venture out of my lair to study somewhere else on campus, generally to get away from junk food and my computer’s internet (more distractions).  When I decide to study elsewhere, I have a few favorite study places on campus that I like to visit.

If you are a speech-language pathology (SLP) student, you’re in luck!  SLP students have several computer labs available to them in the Speech and Hearing Clinic in the East building.   These rooms are filled with desktop computers for SLP students to use for observations or other major-related assignments.  This semester I’ve really begun to utilize these labs, because many of my classes require me to watch clinic sessions.  The computer labs are generally quiet, and good places to finish up assignments between classes.

The library has several great places to study.  There are tables and chairs in the front room that students can use to read or work.  The first floor houses the largest computer lab on campus, along with two printers you can use to print final papers or other end-of-semester assignments.  Upstairs, several couches sit next to a long table surrounded by chairs; both the table and the couches offer quiet places to sit and work. And if you really need a quiet space, there are a few group work rooms upstairs, each equipped with a table, chairs, and a thick door that keeps out relatively all noise.

Near the end of finals, when I don’t have much left to do and I get tired of studying alone, I head down to the AMC, the first floor of Medaille Hall, to work with friends.  The AMC is filled with tables, chairs, couches, and desks with computers and a printer, all available to Fontbonne students. It’s not always the quietest place on campus, but during the day it is usually a good place to study or to relax between classes. The doors to the AMC are unlocked during weekdays until night—then you must have a swipe card (given to residents) to enter the building. If you live in the Joe (the residence hall for freshmen), there is a similar room on the first floor.

Those are my favorite spots to study on campus, but I know there are more!  Please let me know if you have great spots to study.

Have a happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  We’ve almost reached the end!

I love it when the sun is shining, faces are smiling, and good vibes are all around.

Here are some events/activities that happened recently that fulfilled those requirements:

I explored Creve Coeur Park with these lovely people (Iris, Carlos, Ben, and Bryar who isn't pictured).

Fontbonne Current Students and Alumni got together to volunteer at City Seeds Urban Farm with Gateway Greening.

I got to visit Grant's Farm for the first time with a group of Students and Residence Hall Association.

We even got to feed baby goats at Grant's Farm!

Enjoying a spur of the moment picnic at Oak Knoll Park!

Having some picture-taking fun in Medaille Meadow on campus.

Peace, Love, & Beautiful Weather.

Surprised

by Tim on November 19, 2012

A surprise to me is how friendly everyone is here. I have met some interesting people. My floor mate Alex and I are becoming best friends, we are talking to each other a lot more than at the beginning of the year. I’m normally the shy guy, but the people here are just great to talk to. I’m becoming less shy here. I have a good group of friends here that are so friendly and talkative. Everyone at my last school just wanted class to be over so they could go home, but people here just stay and hang out with me.

A Day on Campus

by Deanna April 30, 2012

Just last week, my friend Shannon and I were both feeling stressed because of our classes and work. To relieve stress, we decided we were going to have a day around campus! We took “naps” in the Meadow (it was more like we just laid there in the sun chatting), we drew with chalk around [...]

Change is Good

Well, this is it. There’s just four weeks left of my first year of college! I can hardly believe it. This past week was quite a busy one, with final projects being introduced and other class related things to do. SHESA (Student Human Environmental Sciences Association) is sponsoring Denim Day in a couple of weeks, [...]

small campus size

by Alumni Posts February 21, 2012

One thing that is quite nice about Fontbonne is the small campus size. It is impossible to get lost on campus, something that is quite possible at larger schools.

The one person every student should get to know on campus

by Madison October 13, 2011

There are so many great people that every student should get to know on campus. It might just be too hard a task to narrow it down to one. So to be fair, I’ll break this topic down, and I’ll choose a person in an educational sense, as well as in the social scene. Therefore, [...]

Midterms

by Elizabeth P. October 12, 2011

Midterms. The one word every college student never wants to hear. The big scary test that happens before the exam. Well, they are definitely scaring me. I have two of my midterms on the same day. I had always been lucky enough in high school to never have more than one test on the same [...]
