The word of the week for me is anticipation. I am preparing to go back to Des Moines over the weekend where I grew up and meet up with old friends and family. I am anticipating that this will be a good time but a bittersweet one as well. You should know that I have […]

The one person every student should get to know on campus

by Alumni Posts 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, […]

Follow Me to the Fall Retreat

by Alumni Posts October 12, 2011

It’s that time of year again! The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, you can wear a jacket to class. Oh wait, it’s 80 degrees in October this year, so you’re probably still wearing your flip flops and shorts. But, nonetheless, it’s still that time of year again! Are you wondering what I’m babbling […]

Philosophy of Education

by Alumni Posts October 10, 2011

So I’m taking a course called “Philosophical Foundations of Education,” and one of the assignments is this big essay on my personal beliefs and values when it comes to teaching.

by Alumni Posts September 21, 2011

A majority of college students would agree they love it when summer starts, but if you would ask the Fontbonne student body, they would reply that they love it when the school year starts. I came from the University of Missouri St. Louis and transferred to Fontbonne to complete my junior and senior years because I didn’t […]

Of Flash Drives and Fontbonne

by Alumni Posts April 20, 2011

If there’s one trend that’s appeared again and again this school year, it’s my penchant for losing flash drives. Between the two flash drives I use regularly, one that’s a bright pink rubber bracelet and the other that’s plain ol’ gray except for the postage stamp on its side, I have misplaced them on campus […]

I have my ups and downs with Fontbonne, from time to time. I mean, it’s school – I’ll inevitably become annoyed from time to time with this institution. Plus, no University is ever perfect… But, Fontbonne definitely has its benefits. I wasn’t even aware of one of the benefits I enjoyed here at Fontbonne until […]

Fontbonne is My Kind of College

by Alumni Posts November 8, 2010

I recently took a trip to Indiana for my first Big Ten college visit. The experience was completely new and I was awe struck by the magnitude of the campus at first; it felt a little like seeing a big city for the first time. Their Student Union alone was larger than every building put […]

Conversations with My Community

by Alumni Posts November 1, 2010

One thing I really love about Fontbonne is how easy it is to embed yourself in the community. I’ve been very fortunate in my experiences at this school and have gotten a lot of opportunities that I may not have at a larger school. With all these experiences has come the possibility of making friends […]
