Work and Play

by Carlyn September 25, 2012

I’ve got another busy week ahead of me, which is the way I like it. Especially when the week is spent doing things I want and choose to do. Wednesday night, FAB (Fontbonne Activities Board) is hosting a free event at Wild Country. So, I will be line-dancing the night away in my cowgirl boots! […]

So I apparently won the Lip Sync contest and a $200 shopping spree…

by Alumni Posts September 25, 2012

Hello, Readers! An exciting development in my life this past weekend was winning the Lip Sync contest with my friend Claire, and Katie (Claire’s roommate/a friend who I just met by doing Lip Sync). (Getting involved on campus brings people together.) We did a lip sync performance to the “Gangnam Style” song by PSY (a […]

School is kicking in.

by Corie September 20, 2012

Transitioning from a junior college to a university is not as overwhelming as it would seem. It is a lot more hard work than I thought it would be, but I’m up for the challenge. I’ve had two tests this week and next week I have two papers due. First time for everything, right? School […]

Back in Routine

by Deanna September 10, 2012

Three weeks have come and gone, and it feels like we never even had a summer break. It’s so natural and easy to fall back into step here at Fontbonne — back in the same routines with classes, work, homework, and hanging out with friends. Although it feels like we never had a summer break, […]

Advice From a Fontbonne Griffin

by Conner April 9, 2012

With Spring’s arrival and the number of weeks of college left getting smaller and smaller, I have began to reflect on how my first year at Fontbonne University has been so far, and what advice I might have to others (all you readers out there!). While at Fontbonne, I would definitely urge everyone to get […]

My Most Challenging Class This Semester Isn’t Even a Class

by Alumni Posts October 12, 2011

Hello to everyone reading this blog! This is my first blog for this semester and there is good reason for why that is. Let’s just say that I’m SUPER involved here at Fontbonne and keeping up with everything can be quite challenging. Don’t get me wrong though, school is challenging enough, and as a Speech-Language […]

Getting in the Swing of Things with the Lip Sync Competition

by Alumni Posts September 21, 2011

I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted. Four weeks into the school year and everything is in full swing. I know that as a senior, classes are REALLY important now. Not that they weren’t important before, but it just kind of hit me that “Hey, this is your life!” Luckily there are a few […]

Facebook, I love you.

by Alumni Posts March 16, 2011

Of course, good luck finding a college student who doesn’t love Facebook, who doesn’t procrastinate regularly by scrolling through their news feed, and who doesn’t regularly keep in contact with their friends (and sometimes family) using this social media beast. But I feel like I have a special relationship with Facebook. I manage two pages […]

David Coleman: The Love Doctor

by Alumni Posts February 11, 2011

On Thursday night, Feb. 10, Fontbonne had an event on campus sponsored by FAB and RHA. First, at 6 p.m. there was a very nice sit-down meal provided to guests who RSVPed. The DSAC Cafe area was almost unrecognizable as every table had a nice tablecloth with a fancy centerpiece and place settings. Throughout the […]

Don’t Mess With Me – I’m Really Good at Bingo.

by Alumni Posts February 3, 2011

Well, this first full week of the spring semester went pretty well for me! On Wednesday, the Fontbonne Activities Board, or FAB, hosted “Back to School Bingo.” When I first heard about the event, I balked: bingo for college students? I mean, I know I like Bingo, but I wasn’t too sure about the rest […]
