It’s All Coming Together Now…

by Alumni Posts June 20, 2013

It kind of creeps me out how close summer really is when you sit down and think about it.  We are just a mere 16 school days until spring break, and Fontbonne’s summer class schedules are already out.  (By the way, kudos to whoever designed the covers – I was talking to some friends about the […]

Snowed in all week.

by Alumni Posts February 3, 2011

There is a snow/ice storm covering the Midwest! Classes were canceled Monday night, all day Tuesday, and so far all day Wednesday. I have been using this time to apply for internships for Summer 2011. I hope to land an internship in the windy city! Wish me luck!
