choosing a major

My name is Johnise McKinney, and I am a senior social work student here at Fontbonne University. In addition to being a full time student, I am also a mother of 3, which is another full time job within itself; however I manage to make it work. I have always had a high passion for helping other people, even when I couldn’t help myself, so naturally I chose social work as my career field. I love the fact that Fontbonne University has one of the top social work programs in Missouri and the class sizes are so small that you can get all of the attention and help that you need from the instructors. In addition, Fontbonne offers many merit-based and financial-based scholarships and grants, which can always come in handy when you have a tuition balance. The social work program participates in many local seminars and charity events in order to gain field experience and volunteer experience as part of degree requirements, however the events are always insightful and eye opening. I would definitely recommend Fontbonne University to anyone looking for a close-knit community school, the friendships and opportunities for involvement are endless as long as you always but your best foot forward. I would like to end by telling you this: “Your Passion will lead you to your purpose in life.”



“Why professional writing?” Or, “Why an English major?” These are common questions I am constantly asked by my friends, coaches and family members. I know the general consensus about English classes is typically a negative one so why in the world would I want to spend four years of my life studying it? Well, I for one have always loved writing, learning about the English language and improving my writing skills while doing so. My passion for writing developed at a young age when I was about 5 or 6 when I began to write dozens of short stories in my spiral notebooks. The amount of notebooks that I went through as a child was more than likely upwards to about 100. Most of these relics are scattered around my house and I’ll find myself from time to time picking one or two up and flipping through it to relive my childhood. My mother and my great-grandmother were great influences in my life who always encouraged me to continue my writing and would always ask to see my most recent works. As I advanced in age so did my writings. I soon began to have aspirations of writing lengthy novels and plots for movies and television shows and would always write these ideas down. Mainly due to a short attention span, none of these ideas ever took form. I soon shortened the lengths of the ideas down and began to write short stories and poems. Throughout high school and college, I have a strange enjoyment to writing essays and other various writing prompts that I’ve been assigned. This love for writing is what led to me becoming a blogger and writing these different posts.

Now, another major question I am always asked is, “What are you going to do with a professional writing degree?” I’ve always known what I was going to do with a professional writing degree and this is to continue writing. I have aspirations of working in the publication industry and potentially at a magazine company. One day I dream to have my own magazine or sort of publication where I would write about the things that interest me. I am working on getting internships at magazine companies where I can continue this dream forward that I have been living since a young boy.


Welcome Back!

in Career Paths,Extracurricular

Hey guys! It’s been a great 2016 so far, and I am excited to be one of Fontbonne’s newest student bloggers. Here’s the basics you should know about me. My name’s Taylor, and I’m a junior here at Fontbonne. I’m majoring in dietetics and minoring in chemistry, and hoping to get into med school after graduation so that I can work in sports medicine, specifically with tennis players. I’m a triplet from from a little town called Ozark, about 4 hours southwest of St. Louis. My brother goes to school in San Francisco, and my sister in Kansas, so we are kind of all over the place right now. Originally, I chose Fontbonne because of their amazing dietetics program, and I thought that I would play tennis here. The tennis thing never happened, and I changed my mind about what career I wanted my sophomore year, but Fontbonne still ended up being the perfect fit for me.

During my 3 years here, I have had the opportunity to be involved on campus in pretty significant ways, whether through my current campus job of being a resident assistant, or through the various organizations I am a part of, including ODK, SAFCS, and Fontbonne ResLife. This place keeps me busy, and I feel like there is always something cool going on here.

The best part about Fontbonne for me would have to be the people. I have managed to find some really spectacular friends here that have kept me going and made me excited about life, and every semester I meet more people here that impact me in different and cool ways. My best friends are people that I really had nothing in common with before I got here, but who have managed to become some of my favorite people in my life.

I hope you guys are having a great 2016 so far, and I can’t wait to share more with you!

My Major!

by Fontbonne University on October 1, 2015

in Academics

My name is Jessica Jordan. I am majoring in Computer Science and technology and Cyber security. I chose to pursue this major because I do well with computers. I am intrigued when it comes down to technology. My strongest subject is mathematics. So I can say that I not only chose my major it chose me. I want to find a career that deals with me being on a computer 24/7, constantly gathering and finding new ways to perform math problems. I can’t wait to see how the world will change as time goes on. As time goes on technology will continue to evolve and become more and more a part of our daily lives.


One Major to Rule Them All!

I had no idea what I wanted to do when I first set off to college my freshman year. I didn’t declare myself undecided, but I had my sights set high on Biology and doing Pre-Med. I’d grown up wanting to do something like House did (you know, that show with the cynical doctor whose […]

Why Fontbonne, huh?

by Fontbonne University September 21, 2015

I think I’m becoming what you would call a professional student. I went to college straight out of high school, got my bachelor’s degree from UMSL in communications 4 years later, then continued to go back and take random classes because I still had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Eventually […]

I Didn’t Choose Fontbonne: It Chose Me

by Alumni Posts September 17, 2015

I ended up at Fontbonne in December of 2013. Before that I had hopped, skipped, and jumped from school to school hoping to find the right place to settle and finally figure out what I wanted to do. Truman State University was my home for my freshman year and I wanted so desperately to return […]

What do you want to be when you grow up?

by Fontbonne University April 23, 2015

First year college students walk in with a lot of insecurities. This is the year we begin to answer the question that our relatives at awkward family parties have been asking us for years: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” We are asked what major we want to do and what […]

College Transition

by Fontbonne University April 7, 2015

I remember the final days of high school pretty well, at least for now since I graduated almost two years ago now.  But those last final days were kind of just odd to say the least.  There were girls around me who were emotional some days and then so excited the next day.  For me […]
