Day tour in St. Louis

by Penny September 27, 2012

A one-day trip is FREE in St. Louis?    What’s this for? It’s a free one-day trip in St. Louis. Because many international students just arrived in St. Louis this year, the Fontbonne International Students Alliance (FISA) plans a day tour for students who are new in St. Louis. We had so much fun because many […]

It’s Monday!

by Lizzie September 17, 2012

Happy Monday morning, Fontbonne! Frankly, it’s not too much of a “happy” morning because of the dull, humid weather, but if you’re happy anyway, that’s awesome! I am actually pretty sleepy during this type of day, but I try not to go there. I just want to mention yesterday’s Culture Crawl, generally known as the […]

Some Final Thoughts…

by Alumni Posts May 11, 2012

Wow.  I’m exactly halfway through my time at Fontbonne.  I just finished my last final this morning, and I was out the door by 10:05.  It will take me a while to realize that I’m actually on summer break, but I’m happy for my newfound freedom. This year was definitely far more challenging than last […]

The Great Forest Park

by Alumni Posts March 5, 2012

My absolute favorite overall place in St. Louis has got to be Forest Park. In terms of things to do, it has so much to offer, beginning with the award-winning St. Louis Zoo, which I might add is one of just a few zoos across the country that are FREE! They have added a lot […]

Hello Everyone, Are you unfamiliar with the St. Louis area? Wondering where to go for some fun? Well, I am terrible with directions, but I will be happy to name some interesting places to go! Especially with Fontbonne’s location, almost everything is in walking distance or close enough that gas won’t be wasted if you […]

Favorite Spots in St. Louis

by Alumni Posts March 2, 2012

There are many places to enjoy in St. Louis but I have 2 favorite places. First of all, I love the walking trails at Powder Valley Nature Center in Sunset Hills. I have viewed a deer drinking from a stream there and jumped over a snake on the trail. It is very quiet and serene […]

Autism Walk

by Alumni Posts October 21, 2011

This past weekend I was lucky enough to be apart of the St. Louis Walk Now for Autism Speaks. I was slightly nervous about it because this is something I had never done before and I had no idea what kind of turn out there would be. A group of us from NSSHLA met here […]

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 […]

Happy Trails!

by Alumni Posts October 7, 2011

If you’ve been reading my past few posts, you probably know that I’m (deeply) involved with the Environmental Club. But here’s something I also love – perhaps even more – that I haven’t talked much about lately: RUNNING! I am a proud member of the Fontbonne Track and Cross Country teams, and to me they […]

Trying something new.

by Alumni Posts September 30, 2011

The other day, I rented a paddle boat at the Boat House in Forest Park. Even though I only paddled for an hour, it was well worth it. The boats offer a whole new perspective of the park that is really cool. After the paddle boats, I also tried a new place on Forsyth called […]
