Hello all!! Welcome back once again, Griffin Nation! This week I’m talking about what Fontbonne means to me. I’m proud to be a Griffin because of how many leadership opportunities it has given me. Fontbonne continues to impress me with all of the new things that I can get involved in. When I first came to campus, I was a little timid to get myself involved because I had no clue of what any of this entailed. But now I feel like I have a never-ending list of organizations to say that I’m apart of. I can also say doors keep opening in my benefit for new leadership opportunities, and I will forever be grateful for this.

Fontbonne also inspires me to be the leader that I never knew that I could be. I am much more involved in college than I ever was in high school, and I never would have expected that because I felt like I was shy and closed people off. But I learned and grew to realize that leadership is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I have been a member of FAB’s (Fontbonne Activities Board) executive board, a member of Fontbonne’s Dance Marathon’s Morale Committee, and a WING leader this past orientation season. I loved being a part of all of these different leadership opportunities because they have all helped me grow in the areas that I needed the most improvement with to be a better leader. I wouldn’t change my leadership experience for anything and it can only get better from here!

Thank you all again, and see you next week!



Hello again everyone!! I hope everyone’s first month of school has treated you all well, and let’s move on to the one of my favorite seasons: AUTUMN! Anyways, back to the topic at hand. I am involved with quite a bit on campus, and I listed most of them in my last blog. I am the Marketing Co-Chair for FAB’s (Fontbonne Activities Board) executive board. My partner in crime to tackle everything Marketing is Miracle Willis, one of my best friends that I met last year at my freshman orientation! We are in charge of promoting the events that we host and making sure that everyone knows about them so that they come out to our events!

I am also involved with other organizations on campus such as Fontbonne’s chapter to support Dance Marathon, Fontbonne’s local chapter of National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA), and Griffin Gang! With Dance Marathon, this organization was just started here at Fontbonne. We also raise money all year long until our Dance Marathon, which is a 12-hour event where we finish fundraising the last pieces of money for the children at Miracle Network. I LOVE being a part of Dance Marathon because I am making a difference in my community, especially for the kids who need it the most. NSSLHA is an organization that helps those who are majoring in Speech Language Pathology and Deaf Education learn more about their fields through fellow Speech Path and Deaf Ed majors who have experience. I enjoy being apart of this organization because I am a Speech Pathology major, and I love learning more about what my future is going to consist of! Last, most certainly not least, I am a part of Griffin Gang! Griffin Gang is our spirit organization on campus, and we support our student athletes through school spirit and attending their games and events!

I love being involved with everything that I am apart of because of the people I have met through my organizations. All of my friends are involved with one organization on campus, and I love all of the people that I have met throughout my time of being involved. If I could go back and change one thing about college so far, it would not be my decision to get involved because I love every part of it!

Until next time,



I think it is safe to say that I am very involved at Fontbonne. Brace yourself! It may seem like a lot, but it is just enough to keep me busy and not too much. I have been on Fontbonne Activities Board (FAB) for 4 years. I help plan major events on campus including homecoming this weekend. I am also an SGA rep for the activities board. This means I go to student government meetings and report our agenda. I am also part of Enactus. Right now we are developing a business plan for a company launching scarves for dogs with the proceeds donated to help prisoners. I am also helping with the Metanoia retreat that is coming up in November. Lastly, I hope to get a job with advancement. They are waiting to hear if they can hire another work study student. I have my fingers crossed!


I am excited to return to Fontbonne. I can’t wait for all the events that are planned for this year. FAB decided to have less events in the future so that they can be bigger. The sibz weekend is very different and it is oriented towards the whole family instead of just siblings. We will also have some movie nights where we have the entire theatre reserved just for us. We also have the annual fall festival and dueling pianos. My course schedule will be different this year. Unfortunately I have class all 5 days a week, however, I am doing an internship with lifework systems. I can do all of the work online. I also was hired for another job. I am going to be a FLIT member and working with Vinny.

However, I am not quite ready to return yet, I still have fun things to do this summer. I want to see the new Ice Age movie and Bad Moms. A friend and I plan on going to Grant’s farm and hopefully Incredible Pizza. It is also my parents’ 25th anniversary. I plan on making them a sand castle cake made of edible sand, teddy grahams, and waffle cones. I will use vanilla wafers and candy pearls to make oysters.
