Midsemester Thoughts

by Erica March 13, 2013

Ahhhhhh! How are we already passed the midpoint of my last semester of undergraduate school? How am I a Senior already?!? For those who are still in high school or aren’t quite Seniors in college yet, just know that the time will fly by! Don’t take that time for granted! If you’re a Senior like [...]

Graduating with Sadness and Butterflies

by Kelia November 30, 2012

As you may know, or may not know, this is my last semester as a college student. I have been looking forward to graduating a semester early from the beginning, but now that it is here, I want to rewind/take-it-back/say re-do. I want another semester to explore, another semester after that to have fun and another [...]

Better late than never…I guess :-/

by Melanie September 17, 2012

Hello world!!! First and foremost I’d like to say that I am a full time wife (8 months)…a full time mother (7 months) a full time career woman, and a full time student since August. This leads me to my next point—-I AM FULL TIME EXHAUSTED. I started my Communications endeavors straight out of high [...]

My Final Blog

by Alumni Posts December 5, 2011

So… this is it. I’m done with classes. I have one more brief paper to write and hand off, and I’m done. Less than two weeks from now, I’ll walk the stage, dressed in a gown I’ll wear one time ever. Frankly? It’s anti-climactic. There’s not some big banner I run through at the finish [...]

The Future Soon

by Alumni Posts November 15, 2011

I recognize the recurring theme of graduation in my posts. Bear with me, here – the reality of the situation hasn’t completely set in, so I think about it often. As I get closer to graduation, I’m starting to think about what I’m going to miss. Odds are, I’ll move away from St. Louis. But… [...]

Where Are You Headed?

by Alumni Posts October 28, 2011

The more I think about my future, the more I realize I’m clueless. My response to this state of cluelessness is to seek out other people to talk to; current and former professors, close friends and significant others, parents, randomly trustworthy strangers… why not? The thing is, I want to do SO MANY things. I’d [...]

Mid-term Travels

by Alumni Posts October 18, 2011

2 months ‘til I graduate. But who’s counting? We’ve arrived at the mid-semester mark, which means my life has suddenly become considerably easier. First, I’m done with my senior paper (still gloating about this a bit, don’t mind me). Secondly, I’m done with my 8-week Music Appreciation class. This leaves me with only Advertising Senior [...]

That Senior Paper

by Alumni Posts October 12, 2011

86 pages. 25,615 words. 53 citations. This is my senior paper in applied sociology: “Applied Sociology and Adcult: Reflecting on an Applied Sociology Internship.” And it’s finally done. I started this paper at the beginning of the school year, back in August. In a little over a month and a half, I churned this thing [...]

Planning the Future: Yesss!

by Alumni Posts March 29, 2011

This isn’t the first time I’ve talked about this, but I LOVE talking about this! I LOVE planning for the future. Maybe it’s because it helps me organize my priorities and see what work I need to get done. Maybe it’s because I love visualizing where my life is going to go. Maybe because it’s [...]

Number Crunching and The Real World

by Alumni Posts February 7, 2011

May 21, 2011 is a date that looms over my head every hour of every day of this spring semester. It is only  53 school days and roughly 120 hours of class away from this exact moment. That is it: the day of my graduation from Fontbonne University. I know that most of my peers [...]
