Just Do Your Best, Do Everything You Can

by Alumni Posts July 26, 2013

As I approach my final year at Fontbonne, I have to start thinking about my life post-grad. Like most dietetics majors, I’ll be applying for an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics-certified internship this spring and then preparing to take my exam to become a Registered Dietitian. The internship selection process is notoriously cutthroat, so it […]

Into the Great Wide Open

by Alumni Posts April 2, 2013

Now that April – and hopefully warmer weather – is upon us, it’s time to begin the registration process for next year’s classes. As usual, I’ll be knee-deep in dietetics! There will be some clinical nutrition classes, some family/consumer science-based classes, and a class that will prepare me for the dietetic internship application process (which […]

I Bet You Never Thought Your World Would Come to This.

by Alumni Posts January 25, 2013

As cliché as it may sound, if there’s one thing I’ve learned during the course of my time in college so far, it’s that this really is a time of self-discovery. If you had told the straight across bangs-sporting, ballet dancing, high school version of myself that once I went to university, I would quit […]

by Alumni Posts November 5, 2012

It’s that time of year again…. Advising Week! Everyone has to meet with their advisor to plan out what they want to take next semester and get approval to register for classes.

Confused? Me Too.

by Alumni Posts October 29, 2012

As I mentioned in my first post, I’ve changed a lot since first entering college. While my looks have changed (in my opinion) quite astronomically, I think the biggest change I’ve experienced has been in my personal interests.

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 […]
