How can math be discrete?!

by Deanna October 12, 2011

Hardest class I have this semester… or have ever had, for that matter… is Discrete Math. I still am not sure what purpose it will ever serve in my future, and I have to work twice as hard to do well in that class as I do in any of my other classes. It’s a […]

Where Everyone Knows Your Name…

by Marielle October 12, 2011

This semester has been kind to me as far as classes go, so I thought I would talk a little bit about what classes I’m taking. I’m happy to not have many Gen-Eds to get out of the way, so now I can really get down to my major-specific classes: this semester, it’s Chemistry, Food […]

Learning Through Experience

by Alumni Posts September 26, 2011

So I’m currently taking a course called “Introduction to Classroom Teaching” and let me just say, it has done nothing but confirm to me that I was meant to be a teacher.

Mise en place

by Alumni Posts April 14, 2011

Mise en place has been ingrained in my brain this semester…along with syneresis, flocculated, chalazae, and an abundance of other culinary terms. (Shout out to my dietetic classmates and Dr. Cheryl Houston!!!) With all that said, Mise en place is a great representation of how I feel going into Fall 2011 semester.  For those of […]

Sarah- Can See Herself in Many Fields

by fontbonneuniversity October 22, 2008

My major is Accounting.  My thought process for this selection was that I wanted to mainly do photography.  So I sat here thinking, “Well I need to go the business route.”  Photography alone has a lot of different costs associated with it.  You must buy the paper to develop the photos on, the chemicals to […]

My major is business administration with a concentration in management.   I first started out wanting to do sports medicine and then I moved into accounting.  After taking two classes, I decided that it wasn’t a right fit for me.  At the same time, I was taking management classes and I enjoyed those much more.  […]

by fontbonneuniversity October 17, 2008
