“Because of Fontbonne I will…” This is the statement from the We Are Griffin Nation website that stuck out to me the most. Where do I start? There are so many things from my Fontbonne experience that are applicable to this statement. I have had so many experiences here that have changed my perspective and made me think in new, exciting ways. Since I have been here I have learned so much about myself and others, and have grown as a person in so many ways. One statement just would not be enough. Because of Fontbonne I will graduate with the skills and knowledge necessary to propel myself further into my chosen career. Because of Fontbonne I will have countless connections with people who have shaped me and changed my life in ways that I could have never imagined. Because of Fontbonne I now have the confidence and motivation to strive for things that I want, even if they scare me. But mostly, because of Fontbonne, I am a better, smarter,kinder, and more confident person than I was when I first got here.
What does being a part of Griffin Nation mean to you?
Have a great week!
Thinking about coming to Fontbonne? Here are some reasons why you should consider this lovely school!!!
1. It’s small. Unlike at a big school where the lectures have 75 students or so, Fontbonne is only a few thousand students, so the classes are like max 30 people. The professors have less students to know so it’s easier to get to know them and most likely you can get to know a lot of the students on campus!
2. It’s in a good area. There are plenty of things you can do while attending school here. Whether it’s going a few blocks down to Delmar to check out the loop, or going to the Galleria or Brentwood. It’s also a few blocks away from Forest Park where there’s tons of fun activities always going on. With winter coming up, the Steinberg skating rink will be opening soon too!!
3. There are a lot of major choices. Whether you’re looking into one of the education fields, nutrition, or something else, Fontbonne has a variety of academic choices.
4. It’s negative wind chill outside, snowing, and your professor still hasn’t cancelled class? Good thing the buildings are only 5 minutes away from each other!
Fontbonne is a nice little school with a big personality. That’s why you should considering coming to Fontbonne today!!
Oct 20 is the annual celebration for The National Day on Writing.
The Kinkel Center at Fontbonne had a fun event for celebrating the National Day on Writing, and also encouraged students to write more.
I joined this event in our library last Thursday, Oct 18.
In this event, the Kinkel Center invited students to write a story that began “It was a dark and stormy night on the Fontbonne campus…”. Every student added a sentence to make the story become scarier.
Before I added a sentence to the story, somebody wrote “The wind whistled eerily between the buildings and dry leaves blew across the sidewalk.” So, I just added a sentence “Then, some scary voice was coming out from the tree.” Haha, I don’t like scary stories, but it was so much fun to play this game.
I love reading and writing, because they are the most important tools to increase my knowledge and improve my English. Beginning to see myself as a writer and reader was a crucial step on my journey in learning English. I like to explore the world of America by reading, and share what I learned by writing. It’s hard to keep writing and reading in English, but it’s worth it to do it.
