Jack C. Taylor Library

My favorite place to study is a place where I seem to be almost 24/7, THE LIBRARY! Its a place I can study and also relax. I am pretty known amongst the staff and I have fun talking to them and seeing them pretty much every day. I especially enjoy being at the library late at night because no one is really there. Also, I can get stuff done for Geeking2Gether. Which leads into this weekends fun!

Saturday is International Game Day in The Library. There will be games and pizza! It is from 11-4, I will be there the whole time so stop by play a few games or just say ‘Hi’. Saturday night will be my first time experiencing STL Up Late. I am pretty excited. All I know it is a comedic improv. I can’t wait. Sunday I will possibly be with my family. I hope those plans go through. I miss them and they are only 20 minutes away!

I hope everyone got registered for the classes they wanted. Next semester will start my senior year! It is going to be great. I only have classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays! This is a first. I am trying to get an internship so wish me luck! I am taking: business writing, graphic design 2, writing short fiction, advertising internship, digital publications and market research. I know a lot of writing right? Good thing I love to write!

Until next time..

This Wednesday (April 17), I’m glad I joined a very meaningful event in the Lewis room, of the Jack C. Taylor Library at Fontbonne.  “Professional Branding and Marketing Presentation” was a special event to teach people who to market their business by social media.

Before we listened to the presentation by our speaker, Michelle Nelson, we had a “Networking Happy Hour,” which means all participants got some food and chatted with each other to build their personal network. For me, it’s also called a “social hour.” When I arrived at Lewis room, the first person I met was our speaker, Michelle Nelson. She was very nice to me. I feel so honored that the first person I met is our professional speaker who has been working for over twenties years as a marketing specialist. She spent some time to chat with me about my school life and my future career. Then, we exchanged our Facebook information with each other, of course, she’s a marketing person. After talking with Michelle, I got some chances to talk with our excellent alumni, faculty, and students. I really enjoyed this happy hour, since I made many new friends there, and ate some delicious food, of course.

After finishing the networking happy hour, everyone paid attention to the marketing presentation by our speaker, Michelle. She taught us how to use our social media, especially Facebook and pinterest, to market business. Moreover, she also told us how her clients have been successful to build up their business by social media. I really liked this presentation, since this information is very useful.

There are many useful resources that Fontbonne offers to alumni, faculty, and students, such as this event. I really need to say thank you to the Student Alumni Association for inviting Michelle to come to our school to give us a very useful presentation.

Last night before bed, I watched “Marie Antoinette”. A few weeks ago, one of Fontbonne’s Faculty and Staff won the “best costume”, dressed up as Marie Antoinette. I admired her costume. She looked like she popped out of the 1700′s. When the name of the character she dressed up as was announced, I asked my friend: “Who is Marie Antoinette?” My friend looked shocked when I asked her. After many years of History Classes in grammar school and high school, I felt dumb when she told me who she was. Marie Antoinette was the Last Queen of France, married to King Louis XVI. The film “Marie Antoinette” gave a great insight about how life was like as royalty in France in the late 1700′s. I never really knew what life was like for the King and Queen of France, until I got to see “Marie Antoinette”. Although I have heard about Versailles, I haven’t really known about what King and Queen lived there. I was very interested in seeing the King and Queen live in Versailles. I had absolutely no idea who was the first and the last royal to live there. (By the looks of it at the end of the movie, King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette were the last governing royalty to reside in the Palace).

When I was browsing through the Jack C. Taylor Library at Fontbonne University, I was surprised to have spotted a movie about Marie Antoinette. (Just a couple weeks before I had no idea who Marie Antoinette was!) The movie was very good in my opinion; Kirsten Dunst did a very fine job acting as Marie Antoinette. The film enabled me to take a good look into what life was like for the Queen. She was a beautiful girl, but the movie did not make her look mean. Some think that Marie was a villainess, while other French people looked at her sort of how Americans view the First Lady, Michelle Obama. Marie Antoinette was dressed to the nine’s and had a handful of responsibilities and adjustments to make in the French Court. Although the King did the majority of the governing, the Queen had some power. It was very interesting to watch the changes of Marie Antoinette from a young duchess in the Austrian Court to the Queen of France. The next time you are at the Library, I recommend that you borrow “Marie Antoinette”.

There are so many places I like at Fontbonne, but if you ask me my favorite place, I will answer you “the Library is the best one in my life.”

Here are some reasons why I go to the library almost every day.

  • Many useful resources.

I like to go to the library very often, to borrow books, DVDs, or just sit down to read magazines and journals. Fontbonne updates the books and DVDs very often, such as I just saw the newest movie “The Avengers” a few weeks ago. It’s so neat, isn’t it?

  • Computers

At Fontbonne library, we have so many computers available for students to use. I use the computer very often especially since I had to write many papers or essays at the same time. It’s a very comfortable environment for me.

  • Friendly staff

As you can see, all the staff in the library are willing to help students if we have questions. They helped me a lot when writing my research papers.

That’s why I love the library a lot.
