Welcome Back!

by Taylor on February 15, 2016

in Career Paths,Extracurricular

Hey guys! It’s been a great 2016 so far, and I am excited to be one of Fontbonne’s newest student bloggers. Here’s the basics you should know about me. My name’s Taylor, and I’m a junior here at Fontbonne. I’m majoring in dietetics and minoring in chemistry, and hoping to get into med school after graduation so that I can work in sports medicine, specifically with tennis players. I’m a triplet from from a little town called Ozark, about 4 hours southwest of St. Louis. My brother goes to school in San Francisco, and my sister in Kansas, so we are kind of all over the place right now. Originally, I chose Fontbonne because of their amazing dietetics program, and I thought that I would play tennis here. The tennis thing never happened, and I changed my mind about what career I wanted my sophomore year, but Fontbonne still ended up being the perfect fit for me.

During my 3 years here, I have had the opportunity to be involved on campus in pretty significant ways, whether through my current campus job of being a resident assistant, or through the various organizations I am a part of, including ODK, SAFCS, and Fontbonne ResLife. This place keeps me busy, and I feel like there is always something cool going on here.

The best part about Fontbonne for me would have to be the people. I have managed to find some really spectacular friends here that have kept me going and made me excited about life, and every semester I meet more people here that impact me in different and cool ways. My best friends are people that I really had nothing in common with before I got here, but who have managed to become some of my favorite people in my life.

I hope you guys are having a great 2016 so far, and I can’t wait to share more with you!

Hello Future and Current Fonties!!

I wanted to let you know a little bit about myself! I wrote for this blog last semester and it was a great experience that I wanted to try again.

I am 18 years old, 19 in April. I am from a family of 6, a mom and a dad, two older brothers and a twin sister.

I am the proud owner of a puggle named Gus.

I went to high school at St. Dominic High School in O’Fallon, MO and I live in Saint Peters, MO.

I am a second semester freshman at Fontbonne. My major is fashion merchandising and I am considering adding another major or maybe a minor, so let me know if you have an suggestions.

I have always enjoyed writing and with the stressful life of a full-time college student and working after school, I do not always have the time to write, so this blog gives me a chance!

Why I am Proud to be a Griffin?

I am proud to be a Griffin because of a multitude of reasons. Fontbonne’s strong Catholic roots and excellent academic and athletic programs encouraged me to find my home away from home at Fontbonne University. From the friendly faculty and staff, to the familiar faces around campus, Fontbonne made me feel at home the day I stepped onto campus. With the small class sizes and willing faculty, Fontbonne made my transition from high school to college smoother than I could have ever imagined, with the help of the amazing admission team, WING Leaders, and Griffin 101 leaders. I am proud to be a Griffin because of the high moral standards and overall expectations that everyone is expected to meet once they have been accepted into Fontbonne. The community and it’s outpouring of love is another reason I fell in love with being a Griffin. I could not imagine my collegiate experiences being something other than a Fontbonne University Griffin!

Christmas

by Patricia on December 7, 2015

in Extracurricular

After my exams, I will start celebrating Christmas! I will start hanging decorations on my porch and I will hang up both Christmas trees. We have a green one and a white one. I will also bake cookies. This year I am going to make a yule tide cake. I will make sugar cookies, wreath cookies, pecan crescents, chocolate-covered pretzels, and some new recipes. I will also work at McDonald’s, but not too much because I have some Christmas shopping to do. I also have to give my parents a wish list. The day after Christmas we are visiting my grandma in Indianapolis again. We are not sure what gift we will get her. Even though she is very very short on funds, she always manages to buy us Christmas presents. You can never refuse a gift from her, she will just mail it to your house whether you like it or not!

Thanksgiving Aftermath

by Patricia on December 7, 2015

in Uncategorized

Visiting my grandma for Thanksgiving was fun! On Wednesday when we got a hotel, the lady at the desk saw that we had 5 people and gave us a free upgrade. We got a suite with 2 bedrooms. On Thanksgiving we watched the Macy’s parade in new York  and I got to go swimming. Then we all went to my grandma’s friend’s house for dinner.

The next day before we left, my dad noticed that my grandma didn’t send a piece of equipment in the mail (she has short term memory loss). When my dad saw that it was dated August 25, he sighed and gave a forceful whine. Then my dad asked her where the new one was (she was supposed to have sent back the old one). Then she pointed to it next to the chair. My dad  told her she had to send back the old one, she said that she was using it. My dad said, “No, you are supposed to use the new one.” My grandma said, “Yes, it’s over there next to the chair. Then my dad said, “But there is an old one somewhere.” My grandma replied, “Yes.” All of us said, “Then where is it?” Then my grandma said, “I don’t know,” and a few minutes later we found it in her closet.

A Time To Be Thankful

by Fontbonne University November 23, 2015

Thanksgiving is literally only a few days away, and it feels like time has flown since the beginning of the semester. Out in the stores it looks more like Christmas, which I’ve always found a little sad. Thanksgiving should be celebrated with just as much fanfare. To me, Thanksgiving has always been mostly about family. […]
