I cant believe that 1/4 of the semester is already over. So far my classes have been going well. Recently I have been invited into ODK, and I’m waiting to be accepted. I have also seen some new people who are freshman. If I could give all the freshman the best advice, it would be to get involved as much as you can. During my freshman year, I joined the Fontbonne Activities Board, and it’s really fun. I have met so many people and look forward to all the events we have planned this year.
Hello, my name is DeMarcus Davis. I am a junior Strategic Communications major here at Fontbonne University. My role on campus is that I am a student leader and it is extremely exciting! Every since I started my freshman year, I have been heavily involved with a myriad of organizations. I’ve participated in the Fontbonne Activities Board (FAB) , Student Government Association (SGA) , Campus Ministry, Student Alumni Association (SAA), and Residential Hall Association (RHA), just to name a few. I’ve ranged in multiple positions, however, they’re all great things to get involved with and learn life lessons… possibly I tend to call myself the well of resources because I know so much about the student organizations to an extent; also I call myself a honorary member of most organizations because I randomly help when I’m not even part of the org itself.
But enough about my awesome amazing life as an active student leader and back to the blog. I am really excited to blog and share the exciting things in my brain. I’ll post on Thursdays and Sundays. Thursdays will be about music and the effects it has on people (just in time for New Music Friday) and Sundays will be the typical “What’s wrong with my life?” post… JK, but you get it. Have a good week and see you on Thursday!
The people who have had the most impact on me at Fontbonne are my friends. I became involved in all kinds of activities so that I could meet people. One of the major things I did was join the Fontbonne activities board. I get to help plan all the events and fun things on campus. I also attend the metanioa retreats. This helps me to keep in touch with friends that I met at the beginning of freshman year. I also get to know some people that I don’t know, which is nice. I also planned on being more involved next year by joining the honor society Omicron Delta Kappa.
It has been another busy week! And, it went really fast because it was shortened due to our little Easter break. FAB hosted their spring spirit week. It kicked off Wednesday with karaoke night. It was a really good turn out! It was exciting to see many people in the audience watching, as well as people performing. Karaoke night is always a favorite of mine, so I’m glad I got to be the host and chair of the event. Also, we had a movie night and watched “Hercules” in the DSAC. Spirit week ended with the decades dance on Saturday night! Students were encouraged to dress in any decade of their choice. Also, there were many decorations and tables themed to each decade. I chose to dress as a flapper from the 1920s. It is so much fun to get dressed up and dance all night. However, it’s so sad to think that this was my last dance to attend with FAB since I’ll be graduating soon.
Sunday was spent with ODK for our end-of-year banquet. Although we still have a couple events coming up, it was still a very nice way for us to all come together and celebrate our accomplishments. We had a nice lunch and ceremony recognizing the current and new executive board, as well as all the graduating seniors. This past week has been full of so much quality time with the people and student organizations that mean so much to me.
