Who Am I?

by Patricia on September 7, 2016

in Academics,Career Paths

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.

Introducing Me

by Mari on September 6, 2016

in First Year at Fontbonne

Hello!

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.

I am very excited to start this blog during my freshman year. Feel free to give me a follow on my social media, I follow back!

FUN!!!!

by Patricia on June 27, 2016

in Extracurricular

This week I did lots of fun things. I went to Six Flags with a friend on Wednesday despite the 90 degree weather! We tried to ride every ride we possibly could but we got too hot and tired. After that we went to Bread Co, and then we went home and slept and I watched Nexflix. The next day we went to Eckerts to pick blackberries. As soon as I got home I made a pie and my family loved it! On Tuesday I will finally see Finding Dory after a very long wait! Then I will go to Chesterfield mall, since I have not gone to all the stores yet. I will go to Vera Bradley and get a purse since I haven’t gotten a new one in years! I will also stop at the Cheesecake Factory and get Oreo Cheesecake. I love that place!

I really enjoy my new job at Nordstrom! Lately I have been thinking about going to Europe. However, I cannot work during the school year since I have an internship. I was thinking I could work again over Christmas break and then go on one of the trips that Fontbonne offers!

I am ready for this semester to be over. This time I had 3 group projects and 2 papers to write. On top of all that I have to study for 3 exams! Fortunately I do not have class this Friday and I am completely finished by next Friday. There is a raffle on Monday and I think that I have a good chance of winning. It is based on the number of seminars that I completed. I figured that most people would blow it off, since you have to commit to it every week. If I win, I will get $500. I deliberately did not make plans for this money because if I don’t win, I’ll just be more disappointed.

Then I have a week off to have fun! On May 12 is when I start my job at Nordstrom. I am going to be a sales associate. I hope that I can do well. I will be making $10 an hour plus commission! That is a lot of money for me since I used to work at McDonalds and get paid $8.75 an hour. I plan on saving a lot of the money that I make this summer and not spending it all.

College Realities

by Patricia March 4, 2016

Once I went to Fontbonne, all the advice I got in high school was not true. Everyone told me that teachers did not care if you went to class and that classes were extremely hard. At Fontbonne, the teachers do care about students coming to class and they care about students learning. In one of my […]

Hi everyone, Time really flies fast! It’s already been a year for me in St. Louis, studying in Fontbonne University. Back to the day from last year, I was in California and struggling with what I should do after graduation. It was a really scary thing to me when I thought that it seemed like […]

The Power of an Internship

by Fontbonne University May 4, 2015

If there is one thing I can recommend while you are still in college, it would be to get an internship. An internship allows a student to learn about a desired profession and see if it would be something they could see themselves doing permanently. I had an internship this past tax season at Kiefer […]
