Cardinals

Living on campus has been a whole new and great experience for me. I have enjoy living on campus and I can’t believe we all have to leave our dorms and rommies soon. In this post I will share about some members of the 4th floor of Saint Joseph Hall, where I live. This is a tribute of “Humans of New York” by Brandon Stanton, which is a photoblog of people that live in New York City. I really enjoy having this short interesting conversations with each one of them, hope you enjoy their different thoughts too.

Octavia

“I am studying Anatomy right now. The best way to learn is through visual for me, so I write down all the information, charts, and some vocabulary words. This helps me lot to remember.”

Lilian

“I like living on campus because of all friendships you can form with the people of your floor, also it was a great experience sharing the room with my cousin!”

Austin

“I like Fontbonne because everyone is friendly and easy to get along with.”

Sarah

“I am a big fan of the Cardinals because they represent Saint Louis and I think they are part of the culture of this city. I love baseball! Since senior year of high school I became a huge fan. I love going to the games, and have good memories about it, I always try to go to the majority of their games during season.”

Carli

“This semester was fun, stressful, and I got closer with so many people.”

Sanita

“In the moment I came to the US, I realized that I need to start all over again, and I think I did great. I already can say that I have met here friends who will stay in my life forever. I have lived on the dorms just for four months, but I already have memories with people that I will remember for a long time.”

Raven

“I love Basketball because I grew up playing it. Also, it is a sport that bonds myself and my family.”

Cecilia

“I enjoy watching Downtown Abby because it is in a different time period. You kind of connect with each one of the characters because of their stories. The most interesting for me is what the servants had to go through at that time. I could say Downtown Abby is a funny, dramatic, and fancy show.”

Max

“I really like Fontbonne because of all friends I have made.”

Noella

“I like Saint Louis because there are more things to do than where I used to live. My favorites places to go are the Zoo and Art Museum at Forest Park.”

Sarah

“I love interacting with the residents and building a community. The friends made during the first year of college are friends a person will have the rest of their life. I am glad I get to be a part of that.”

Cassie and Hannah

“We have had the best time sharing a room together, we have a lot of fun having roommate nights and we are also best friends.”

Maddie

“My favorite place on campus would have to be the AMC. It is the perfect study spot and also great place to hang out with friends.”

This past Saturday I went to a Cardinals game with two of my good friends. The athletic office had tickets on sale for $30.

We took the metro to Busch stadium and first went to Ballpark Village for some drinks, and then went to our seats. It was a pretty good game! There was a lot of action and good plays, from both teams. We won this game and the series against the Rockies! I was worried about the weather since it was a night game, and that it would be super cold. It wasn’t that bad.

After the game we went out, danced, and met a few interesting people. Overall it was a good night.

The Department of Leadership, Education, and Student Activities. Whoa, that’s a mouthful. Better known as DLESA, this department hosts a few major campus organizations at Fontbonne, one of which I’m a part of. Omicron Delta Kappa falls under the DLESA umbrella. As we near the final days of the semester (yikes), the department was kind enough to throw the bundle of student leaders on campus an End of the Year Party. This just happened to be a trip to Busch Stadium for a Cardinals Game, complementary nachos, and Ted Drewes after.

It was an enjoyable night! Although it rained off and on, the Cardinals ended up losing, and the game ended significantly past the closing of Ted Drewes, it was still a great night with fellow students. I can’t fathom to think that this time next week my junior year of college will be basically complete, and just a few weeks after that I’ll be boarding a plane to London for the entire summer.

Monday night was a night full of memories, but that is what my entire year has been, thanks to Fontbonne. It’s nights like Monday that I’ll look back on and cherish. I just have to hang on for another week. Let the finals begin!

Ready for the game to start!

Thanks for reading..

This week is another busy one! The Fontbonne Activities Board (FAB) is hosting their annual Spring Spirit Week. There are events planned everyday that lead up to the dance. The overall theme is neon. Here’s the line up of exciting events.

Monday: “Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Mystery” trivia competition during the day and Dueling Pianos performance at night

Tuesday: Trip to the Cardinals game

Wednesday: Splatter paint your own stunner shades during the day and watch “Frozen” in the meadow at night (and eat ice cream)

Thursday: Free lunch for commuters (we’re serving Pot Belly sandwiches)

Friday: Fontbonne Day (community volunteer work) and neon volleyball tournament at night

Saturday: Blacklight Bash! (it’s a dance with all the lights out, but will still be able to see thanks to the awesome glowing decorations and paint splatters on people)

It’s crazy to think how fast the end of the semester is coming. After Spirit Week, there’s only two more FAB events left: Trivia Finale and Springfest. Springfest is an annual end-of-year celebration that is collaborative among various student organizations. There will be a live band, food trucks, dunking booth, tie-dying, Velcro wall, and more. After the carnival portion, the fashion merchandising department is hosting a fashion show (I am also a part of the class that is producing this). Following that is a “Taste of St. Louis” dinner, and then time to relax and play video games and/or do Pinterest crafts. And finally, to end the night, a movie will be shown on the blow up screen.

I am very thrilled for these final events of the year. They have been a work in progress throughout this entire semester, so it’s exciting to see it all come together.

Take Me Out

by Alumni Posts April 9, 2014

Before I start this post, I want to clear something up. I am a bandwagon sports fan. Cardinals, Blues, Rams, etc., I really do not care if they win or lose. However, I do like to join in on festivities. For example: opening day. Technically, the opening day of the season was last Monday, even […]

The Cellular Model of Saint Louis

by Alumni Posts 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 […]

Back to Work

It’s official – as of 11:45 this morning, I’ve been on summer break for one week. And what have I been doing? Working. But not in a bad way. I’ve been having a lot of fun working on projects that I’ve put aside during the school year. I guess it would be better to give […]

Cardinals Won!

by Alumni Posts October 18, 2012

When somebody is talking about St. Louis, what comes to your mind? For me, the answers always are the Gateway Arch and the St. Louis Cardinals. The St. Louis Cardinals are a well-known baseball team based in St. Louis, Missouri. Before studying in St. Louis, I only watched Cardinals on TV when they won the […]

America Culture- Baseball

by Alumni Posts October 18, 2012

This week, everybody on campus is talking about baseball, because the St. Louis Cardinals are playing to win the championship for the National League. In my opinion, baseball is a big part of American culture. People have so much passion about baseball, and they are willing to explain the American baseball rules to me. But […]

Batter Up, It’s Another Crazy Week

by Alumni Posts October 11, 2012

It’s that time of year again. October baseball! I wanted to begin this week’s blog with a few thoughts about my Redbirds. I am so proud of the way the Cardinals have played through the past two months, keeping their lead in the wildcard standings and getting a pretty good lead over the Nationals in […]
