There are lots of songs that came out in 2017 that I love. The kind of music I usually listen to is pop. To list a few: Shape of You by Ed Sheeran, Caroline by Amine, Under the Bridge by Adele, Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande, and Say It by Tove Lo. I usually listen to these songs on Pandora. It is an app you can download on your phone. I listen to Pandora when I exercise. I usually exercise in the DSAC. On the third floor there is a track and I walk around that.
My Spring break was pretty good! I got to relax at home while drinking lots of tropical beverages! I took the GRE so that I can apply for grad school. I’m really glad to have gotten that over with. In fact, I just returned the 5lb book I used to study back to the library today. Returning it felt really good, a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders! This week I was offered the retail management internship at Dillard’s. This was a very long and stressful process. The person in charge of it had left and I had to go through the process of applying and being interviewed all over again! Had I not got this internship I would have a very serious problem!! I would have to go through the strenuous process of finding something else!!!!!
I’m really glad that from now on I can just focus on my studies and that’s it.
This semester is very weird from what I am used to. I have all night and online classes and no day classes. I am still on campus on some days when I have meetings for SGA, FAB, or some other event. I look forward to attending the senior retreat this weekend. Over break I worked at Dillard’s. I am hoping to get the retail management internship this summer. I am majoring in business & management. Hopefully I will have a job with Dillard’s in the fall. I quit once the semester started. I usually cannot work during the semester while I am going to class. But right now, I am contemplating working on weekends. I often feel like I don’t have enough to do. I am hesitant because before I couldn’t handle going back and forth between work and school. I am still not sure what I want to do yet, but I will decide by this month. I am concerned that I will not be happy with whatever decision that I make.
I wish that it would snow more. I recently saw some snowflakes outside and that made me more hopeful. I love sledding and building igloos and snowmen. Last year I built an igloo and put a treat inside and took a video of my dog going in it. I also love going ice skating. Me and my friends usually go to Steinberg, the biggest skating rink in St. Louis.
My name is Tricia Welch. I am a Senior at Fontbonne this year. I am a double major in Buisness Administration and Management. I am part of the Fontbonne activities board, an SGA rep, and a member of Enactus. I am currently doing an internship with lifework systems. My boss runs a business in her home. She sells professional development programs to different health care facilities. It is my job to put word doc into an excel spreadsheet and call the facilities to get contact information. I am helping her book a conference so that she can sell her programs. Next year I would like to go to grad school at Wash U to get my MBA. However, it is likely I will need work experience first. I want to work in retail and I love sales. For fun, I like to hang out with friends, watch TV, play games on my phone, bake, and go swimming. I am really excited for Fall, but I’m not ready for it just yet. I can’t wait for my favorite show Scream Queens to start and to drink pumpkin drinks. I also love Halloween. I will be doing lots of baking, decorating and going to haunted houses.
My name is Maria Torres, but I go by my nickname Mari. I am 18 years old and I am a freshman at Fontbonne University. I was born and raised in Kansas City. I am majoring in Communications. I have two younger sisters. My sister Gabi is in middle school and I have another sister Sofi, who is a sophomore in high school. I also have two dogs who are both Chihuahuas. Even though I am only about 4 hours away from home, I still get a little homesick now and then. I feel so much better knowing that I have met a supportive community of students and faculty here at Fontbonne!

This past summer I was an intern through Bank of America Student Leaders. Through the internship, I worked with a non-profit called Youth Volunteer Corps in Kansas City. This awesome non-profit encouraged youth to give back to their communities through volunteering. I loved to see the youth become so happy after they finished a service project. Also through the internship, I traveled to Washington D.C. along with over 200 young people from across the country. In Washington D.C. we discussed how we can make a difference in our government, not only locally, but nationally too. It was a surreal experience to be surrounded by so many diverse people from all around the country. I met some lifelong friends through the internship.
