The Big Decision

by Alumni Posts October 16, 2011

Well, it’s midterms, folks, and high school seniors (like my sister Emily) are probably getting a little concerned as to where exactly they’ll be this time next year.  My own journey to Fontbonne was an irregular, weird, and stressful one (i.e., it was JULY before I picked a school), so I don’t feel qualified to […]

Where Everybody Knows Your Name

by Alumni Posts September 16, 2011

Hello, everyone! I’m a transfer student. This is my third year attending college and my first at Fontbonne, and I gotta say, it feels so good to be part of a university again! Since the semester started, I’ve discovered a whole plethora of reasons why Fontbonne is the school for me. I’m having trouble just […]

I’d like to take a minute; just sit right there, and I’ll tell you all about how…

by Alumni Posts March 8, 2011

The prompt for this week was the talk about how you came to Fontbonne. My story is pretty basic and boring, but I’ll tell it anyway. I first learned about Fontbonne from a Cross Country camp that the former Head Cross Country/ Track coach Dave Almany had been speaking at. From there, I took Fontbonne, […]

I didn’t choose Fontbonne; Fontbonne chose me.

by Alumni Posts March 7, 2011

The story of how I got to Fontbonne is an interesting one. I’m still not completely sure of how I got here, but I’ll do my best to explain my story. It all started with my love for music and the Fontbonne Communications and Marketing Department. I come from the Western Suburbs of Chicago and […]

Why am I at Fontbonne? Well, you see, it’s all Eleanor Roosevelt’s fault

by Alumni Posts March 7, 2011

I have a great quote by Eleanor Roosevelt on a magnet hanging in my bathroom that says, “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”  These words in my bathroom are strategically placed so that I see […]

Why I Chose Fontbonne

by Alumni Posts March 7, 2011

Well, if I remember correctly, I actually applied to Fontbonne before I visited. I kind of put the cart before the horse, but deadlines were starting to pass me by. Anyway, I was pretty much undecided until about February of my senior year of high school. I fell in love with every school I visited, […]

Why Fontbonne?

by Alumni Posts March 7, 2011

I am a transfer student from St. Louis Community College. The reason why I chose Fontbonne University when searching for colleges is because I was interested in the Fashion Merchandising program. This is the only university in the St. Louis area that offers a four year degree in Fashion Merchandising. I also really liked how […]

Why I Chose to Be a Griffin

by Alumni Posts March 7, 2011

I’m not going to lie – I was never all that excited about the whole college search process. I attended Notre Dame High School, a small, all girl, Catholic high school in Lemay, South St. Louis County. I loved everything about ND – the small class sizes, the student-teacher ratios and relationships, and the personable, […]

Did You Do Your Best Today?

by Alumni Posts March 4, 2011

Finally. My second chemistry test of the semester is over with, and I think it’s safe to say I did well on it. At the last minute my teacher announced that it was open-book, and naturally, I didn’t have my book with me. (Great.) I had to speed-walk back to my room (not an easy […]

XC and RD!

by Alumni Posts February 28, 2011

My high-school was pretty prep. From the minute I walked in the door as a freshman, I was encouraged to seek out my career path and find a good college. That may sound intimidating, but looking back I’m thankful for it, because it helped lead me here to Fontbonne. Long story short, I realized that […]
