Griffin Gang

Have you been looking for an group to get involved with? Try out Griffin Gang! Our group is all about getting students to the games to support our teams. Every week our executive team gathers to discuss ways in which we could get more involvement from the crowd. Of course, our sports teams are not as big as D1 schools because we are only D3, but our athletes work just as hard and deserve their friends and colleagues at these games just as much.

Griffin Gang has specific sponsored games for each sport. They are always home games that we sponsor, and they always have a theme so our crowd can be just as involved! Our next game is the Women’s and Men’s Basketball Senior Night. These games will be played this Saturday at 1 and 3 PM in the gymnasium. The theme for these games are dressing as “Senior Citizens” for Senior Night. Fans can dress in their grandpa’s coat or whatever they see fit for the theme. It is all in a matter of fun to have everyone included!

When we sponsor games, Griffin Gang has a table that is placed at the entrance of the field or at the bottom of the bleachers when fans walk in. You really can’t miss us! We are there to welcome you to the game, tell you about the upcoming games and themes, and put a star in your punch card. If you don’t know what a punch card is then you should come to our table more often! Griffin Gang gives a prize to students if they receive 10 punches in their punch card just by coming to the games and stopping by our table. The prize is a free t-shirt! Next year for the school year ’15-’16 Griffin Gang will be ordering new shirts since so many students have filled out their cards, which is great! Hold on to your cards in the summer if it is not yet completed. These cards do roll over to the next year, and who wouldn’t want another Fonty Tee?!

If you have any questions about getting involved with Griffin Gang or want more information about what we do, please contact me at blaskos@fontbonne.edu.   Go Griffins!

Welcome Back Week

by Carlyn on January 16, 2015

in College Life

Winter Warm-Up, Welcome Back Week, or whatever else you want to call it — what a week it has been! The Fontbonne Activities Board and Griffin Gang hosted a variety of events for the first week back to school for the spring 2015 semester. They are as follows:

-Wednesday: tailgate before the women’s and men’s basketball games
-Thursday: Commuter Breakfast with Chick-Fil-A in the morning and hypnotist Chris Jones at night
-Friday: kiddie snacks and movie night with “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”
-Saturday: trip to play demolition ball

With class, homework, jobs, and an internship added to the mix, I can already feel the craziness of the semester. However, I live for that crazy. I love everything I do and am excited to dive back into things for one more semester before I graduate. It’s hard to believe I’m at the point where I can say that! Happy Spring 2015, everyone!

Okay, this post is gonna be about Griffin Gang, which is one of the organizations I’m involved in here at Fontbonne. It’s new this year, so it’s been a little slow to start, but it has a lot of potential. Its purpose is to support the athletic programs at Fontbonne by having events centered around games and enticing people to come and cheer. If you’ve been reading my blog at all the past few years, you know that I both used to be on a team here at Fontbonne (XC and track, what whaaaaat) and that I am an avid supporter of all the other athletes as well.
The main publicity stunt of Griffin Gang right now is an attendance punch card that allows people to get a free t-shirt once they go to 10 sponsored games. The punches started during the men’s soccer games in the fall, so we are just now getting some people with 10 punches on their card, which is super rad. If you don’t have one yet, come to one of the home basketball games and pick one up! All conference home basketball games will have a Griffin Gang table. There are also raffles, half-time activities, and themed games, which help to generate some interest. So check out their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FontbonneGriffinGang) and come to a game!

Hello All :)

I am pretty excited to be apart of this whole “blogging” thing.

To start it off, my name is Kaniz Abbas and I am a junior at Fontbonne. I play soccer, am a member of the Biology club, Psychology club, Sociology club, Griffin gang, and I am the Vice President of marketing for SGA. Needless to say I stay pretty busy around the campus and I hope to keep people updated on the fun things that go on around this campus! Fontbonne is kind of small but super social, which I am sure you are all aware of, so my blogs are going to cover what goes on at these festivities. Since it is the start of a new week, as well as my first blog, I will just list some things off to ya’ll in hopes to see you at the events.

Mike- Enthusiastic and Spirited

by fontbonneuniversity October 28, 2008

Spirit Week was absolutely fantastic for me as a Fontbonne student.  I had a great time tailgating before the women’s volleyball game on Tuesday night.  We gathered a massive crowd to support the volleyball team.  All of us were enthusiastic, spirited, and downright obnoxious.  Some of us painted our faces purple and gold and all […]

Andrew- Discovers Fontbonne Spirit!

by fontbonneuniversity October 27, 2008

As a Freshman, I didn’t know exactly what to expect from Spirit Week. Fortunately, the school provided a kind of schedule for me (and all other students with Fontbonne e-mail addresses, I’m sure)! Monday morning, on the way to my first class, I noticed a little yellow and purple note hanging on the door to […]
