Is This Real Life?

by Alumni Posts October 8, 2012

One thing that’s great about getting into the junior and senior years of college is the fact that most of your classes relate to your major. As I said before, my major is dietetics, and this semester I’m taking: Community/Public Health Nutrition (School-Aged Child through Adulthood); Application of Nutrition Concepts; Quantity Food Service, Purchasing, & […]

Foodology was meant for me!

by Alumni Posts September 10, 2012

My gosh, I can’t believe I’m a sophomore already. I was just thinking about when I moved in last year into the dorms. I was so scared and excited all at the same time. Now walking in as a sophomore, I feel like I own the school. Ha Ha, not really. But I do feel […]

Where Everyone Knows Your Name…

by Alumni Posts October 12, 2011

This semester has been kind to me as far as classes go, so I thought I would talk a little bit about what classes I’m taking. I’m happy to not have many Gen-Eds to get out of the way, so now I can really get down to my major-specific classes: this semester, it’s Chemistry, Food […]

The cycle continues……..

by Alumni Posts October 5, 2011

Howdy!  It appears my technical difficulties have been solved….thank you Firefox!! Over the summer, I was very lucky to be a part of Fontbonne’s first summer of CampF.R.E.S.H.  I worked in the kitchen preparing food and teaching kids about nutrition and cooking techniques.  Our theme for the summer was the seven continents.  Each week of […]

Nutrition up to my eyeballs!

by Alumni Posts September 26, 2011

Finally, my first post of the semester! My title pretty much sums up why I’m so behind with blogging. While school has only been in session for a little over a month, the “honeymoon” is definitely over!!! It’s my junior year in dietetics, a.k.a the year of numerous group projects! While many of us cringe […]

Mise en place

by Alumni Posts April 14, 2011

Mise en place has been ingrained in my brain this semester…along with syneresis, flocculated, chalazae, and an abundance of other culinary terms. (Shout out to my dietetic classmates and Dr. Cheryl Houston!!!) With all that said, Mise en place is a great representation of how I feel going into Fall 2011 semester.  For those of […]

Take 2!

by Alumni Posts April 1, 2011

If you’ve been following along, you know I constantly brag about what’s going on in my HES 221 Food Theory and Application Lab class. As I explained in my very first blog post, my partner and I will have to complete a Food Network Style Demo. In preparation for this demo, we have selected a […]

Pizza and Dietetics!?

by Alumni Posts March 11, 2011

Say What?! Sounds strange…right? However it’s all in a day’s work for a Dietetics student. As I shared with you in my first post ever, HES 221 Food Theory and Application Lab is my favorite class. Today (Wednesday, actually) was no exception because we made pizza! Easily one of my favorite foods. I know…another shocker! […]

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 […]

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 […]
