FLARE

Hello students and prospective students,

I had a very nice meeting tonight with my colleague, Lottie Marie Page, regarding the “re-start up” of Fontbonne’s LGBTQ Alliance for Respect and Equality (FLARE). After having difficulty managing to run FLARE last semester, I have unfortunately decided to step down as president. Sadly, I did not do anything for FLARE except attending mandatory meetings for being the president of a student organization. Luckily, I had Jes Stevens to help me out (a lot) by making sure FLARE was still being recognized by the Student Government Association (SGA). So, I give much thanks and credit to Jes for having been a very large help for FLARE. It looks like very soon Lottie will become the FLARE’s president. I was hoping that FLARE would not permanently fail due to lack of participation. I am very happy that Lottie is volunteering to take up the position as president of FLARE. I was so inspired to hear her speak about her history of being involved in Pro-LGBT rights activities during her high school years and her involvement with the Gay Straight Alliance at the previous university she attended. I invite all of you to check out FLARE. Lottie is an excellent person for being the new president. (Thanks, Lottie!)

So if you would like to join FLARE, look for Lottie. She is a nice person and is very passionate about restarting FLARE for the student population. It looks like it is going to be a great semester for Lottie. I wish her all the best!

Hope to see you all at her meetings, and of course, I will support FLARE. Let’s go LGBT Rights!

Happy Beginning of Spring 2014!

Hello, fellow Fontbonne students and bloggers! My name is Sean Pellegrini, and I am a new “Real Life at Fontbonne Blogger”! I hope that some day I could meet you. I am a sophomore Psychology major and I LOVE this school. Fontbonne is like another home. I am from Chicago (yes, actually from there on the South Side). I chose to come to Fontbonne because it is a small, accredited university in what I have heard to be a very nice area. Personally, I feel special for being a part of the Fontbonne family. I was able to join several clubs here last year, but I have been particularly active the most in FLARE, Fontbonne’s (Straight and LGBT Alliance for Respect and Equality). Please check out the club! We have a new President this year, Ms. Jes Stevens. I would like to extend my thanks to her for continuing the legacy of FLARE. Aside from being an active member in FLARE, I occasionally go to meetings for FISA, Fontbonne’s International Students Association. This is actually one of Fontbonne’s larger clubs, and if you like to experience different cultures, this is the club for you! I hope you all have a very fun but studious semester! If you are a freshman or recent transfer student, I would personally like to welcome you to our fabulous Fontbonne family. If you ever see me around, feel free to say “hey!” Thanks for reading. Go Griffins!
