Education

Everyone has heard of the phrase: Good things come to those who wait. But in fact there is a second half to that saying that many may or may not know about – and that is: Better things come to those who go out and get them!

And quite frankly, I can personally relate to this! Not only from an educational perspective but also from an Entrepreneurial & Business stand point (the Fortune 500 Project). Again, I cannot talk about it just yet. But when the time comes, hopefully I can let you all know (assuming there aren’t any Non-Disclosure Clauses in the contract). But that is beside the point. We will cross the bridge when we get there. For now, I am excited to see what future lies ahead! I know that it is cliché to say that but in all sense of the word, it is truly exciting! I have a year and half left at Fontbonne (sad, I know..) and I am currently seeking internships! Hopefully things turn out Great! Until next time guys, Stay Classy!

“Fontbonne University, a Catholic institution sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, is committed to the common good through the daily pursuit of transformative education, inspiring students to become global citizens who think critically, act ethically and serve responsibly.”

Without getting too political, in light of the state of our world today, I think our university’s mission statement is more relevant than ever. Education is, in itself, transformative, as often enough are the institutions from which we receive our education. I loved my undergraduate university because of its commitment to diversity. Students from all over the globe attended Tennessee Tech, and I see the same trend at Fontbonne, which astounds me – our school is relatively small, yet it attracts students from many countries, walks of life, and backgrounds. In my short time at Fontbonne, I have become more culturally educated and open-minded thanks to the diversity showcased upon campus.

My favorite part of our mission statement is the last. Indeed, if anything can be done to inspire us to become these well-rounded global citizens, it should be, especially within the precarious political situation we are dealing with today. I encourage you all to examine this statement and apply it to your own lives. It will always be important to assess each situation critically before acting upon our instincts. As we complete our education and embark on our individual journeys into the world, we should make it our priority to serve those around us – we never know what small actions might be changing someone’s life.

Keep moving forward.

We are Griffin Nation

by Anna on October 21, 2016

in College Life

I know the “We Are Griffin Nation” movement kicked off a little while ago, but honestly, it slipped by me because of all the homework and studying surrounding midterms.  I just got a chance to check out some of the wonderful statements other Fontbonne students have come up with.  It’s clear that “Griffin Nation” is full of young adults who want to make a difference!  I loved the variety of responses, from future occupations and achieving goals to finding out who you are and what matters to you.   This campus that so many of us call home is dedicated to educating, inspiring, equipping, and encouraging tomorrow’s leaders.  I know this gets said a lot, but it’s really true:  you (and your education) matter at Fontbonne. 

It was really hard for me to choose just one option and a few sentences about what Fontbonne means.  I finally settled for “Fontbonne inspires me to…”  It inspires me to learn more and be more, obviously. But what exactly does that mean?  For me, it means that I am changing in a good way.  Even in the past two months, I know I have been transforming.  I’ve grown to be more confident.  I can think critically, prioritize my time, and make wise decisions.  Each day I gain a greater awareness of the world around me — and that’s not just St. Louis, Missouri, or even the United States.  I’ve learned to have an opinion that matters, but also respect others who have different views.  My professors, fellow students, and the whole campus atmosphere inspires me to be the best I can be not only in academics, but in life in general.  How can I contribute to the common good?!

It’s been a really interesting first semester.  It’s been both similar and different from what I expected (not unusual, haha!), but ultimately I wouldn’t trade it for anything.  I cannot wait for the years to come and look back fondly on the great memories I’m already making.  I’m sure the changes that I’ve undergone already are nothing compared to how I will emerge in four years — prepared for the next step in my career, ready to influence the world, and inspired to never stop learning more and being more.

Blessings,

~Anna

Hello again everyone! This week I’m going to write about one of my favorite teachers during my time here at Fontbonne: Julie Portman.

To start us off, Julie Portman was the very first teacher that I had ever met at Fontbonne. She was my WING team’s Mission Core teacher, so she was at our orientation all weekend. Since I had her as my Mission Core teacher, she taught me to be more aware of all that can happen in the world around us. We learned about so many social issues in her Mission Core class that I now pay more attention to my surroundings. Making sure that I know an adequate amount about different things that happen everyday can be useful in that you will always be able to have a conversation with somebody. Whether or not that could be small talk or a heated debate over issues we feel so strongly about! She also always talked about getting involved on campus, and she was one of the voices I listened to when I went to the Fall Expo last year. I thank her for all that she has done for me because now I am more socially aware, and I am more involved on campus than I could have ever imagined.

Thank you all for reading every week! I appreciate it, and I’ll see you all next week!

At Fontbonne, there are 2 instructors that inspired me. I took public speaking with Kristen Norwood. Public speaking has not been one of my strengths and she really helped me improve. She pushed me to do things that I was not comfortable with and I am a better public speaker today. A few years after […]
