Fall in Saint Louis is a special time. Walking around Forest Park and going to the Cardinal’s games are actually enjoyable and not uncomfortably hot. Walking from class to class outside and getting to feel the fall breeze encourages activity and productivity.


The feeling of fall has already swept over the Fontbonne Campus with classes meeting in the meadow and the quad and students working on projects and homework outside the AMC on a daily basis. The outside seating area of DSAC is filled with students enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner with company and fresh air.


Fall in Saint Louis is a time to be alive and experience all of the great things Saint Louis has to offer, with some milder temperatures. Take a trip to the Zoo or Grant’s farm, go tour the Arch grounds or explore BallPark Village during the cool evening hours.

Fall in Saint Louis is here and I could not be more excited .


Even though this is my third year of college, this is only my second semester at Fontbonne.  I previously attended Truman State University as an English Education major. But, I soon realized I wanted to get into the health field and found myself fascinated with dietetics. I chose Fontbonne not only because of their beautiful campus, but also because of how welcome I felt as soon as I stepped on campus, how the teachers become your biggest supporters, and of course, because of the great dietetics program.  If you’re new to Fontbonne, I hope you fall in love with the university just like I did.

Happy Friday, Fonties! Friday is my one day that I don’t have class (woo!), but typically tends to be the busiest. As President of the Fontbonne Activities Board (FAB), we have a meeting every Friday at 11:00 AM and (typically) an event at 8:00 PM. In between there, I’m usually spending time up in the Griffin’s Nest finishing up final details, running last minute errands, or just hanging out with other people from my team. So basically… all of my Friday’s are absolutely FABulous, but I wouldn’t change a thing.


Tonight, you can find me in the Lewis Room at the Slam Poetry event. Carlos Andres Gomez will be taking the stage at 8PM. (If you’re free…you should come. He’s stellar.) FAB is co-hosting this event with BSU and I seriously cannot wait. (This is all real enthusiasm – I promise.) Check Carlos out on YouTube – you won’t be disappointed!


Currently, I’m getting ready to leave to run some errands for an event we are hosting next Monday. You know what’s on my shopping list? Aluminum pie tins and whipped cream. Why? We are hosting a Dance Marathon Fundraiser where six student leaders can get pied in the face. One pie costs $2 OR you can purchase 3 for $5. Oh, and I’m one of those six student leaders that you can pie. I’m really excited (and nervous) because the event has been talked about A LOT.  All the proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Miracle Network. Excited? Slightly interested? Want to support a good cause? Grab your cash and head to the Meadow on Monday at 11! (My mom is personally sending me with $5 so that someone can pie me in the face for her THREE TIMES. Thanks, mom.) All in all, it’s for a great cause and I cannot wait to see how much money we raise For The Kids!

My Study Spot

by Fontbonne University on October 7, 2015

in Academics

In college there are a lot of distractions, be it electronics, or even other people. We all need a location where we can get away. So it is important to find your one location where you can really lock your mind in and focus on what needs to be accomplished. For me, it’s on the second floor of the library on either the leather sofa or loveseat. You will often find people napping or typing away on the furniture, so if you are lucky enough to see an open seat, make sure you snag it. Aside from the comfort provided by the leather furniture, you are in the library which makes it pretty easy to focus. Most of the time it is silent on the second floor, unlike the constant sound of the printers on the main floor. For me to really focus, I need silence and no distractions. This spot accommodates my needs perfectly. But the best part is the view. You get to look out the giant window and admire the beauty of the campus as well as view everybody else going about their business walking to and from the library. In the evening sunshine it truly is a magical spot to be and it’s where I can be found relaxing, getting homework done, and even writing this blog post. IMG_1518


Fontbonne in the Spring

by Fontbonne University April 28, 2015

What is St. Louis like during the changing of seasons from winter to spring?  Well that depends, are you the kind of person that really enjoys sneezing from allergies, mold, and other nature’s blooming plantations?  Okay, St. Louis is not all like that.  But having so many types of trees in our city as well […]

Staying Organized

by Alumni Posts October 1, 2014

If you’re anything like me, you start the semester with the best of intentions.  You vow to stay perfectly organized and file everything in its appropriate place before you go to sleep at night… and then September rolls around, and you’re back to your unorganized, I’ll-deal-with-it-later habits. If you know anything about Pinterest, it’s a […]

The Seaweed is Always Greener

by Alumni Posts April 28, 2014

One of the things I like best about Fontbonne, and I’m sure I’ve said this many times before, is how easy it is to get involved in things.  And not just get involved, but dominate.  Perhaps this sounds negative, but I’ve always felt that Fontbonne provides a perfect “big fish in a little pond” atmosphere, […]

Study Time

by Alumni Posts November 25, 2013

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 […]
