Why I chose Fontbonne.

I chose to attend Fontbonne because I really liked the environment. I have really succeeded and accomplished a lot of things here. When I was a freshman, I joined the activities board and helped organize lots of different events. Recently I joined Enactus, which will help me get experience and internship opportunities. I also got accepted into ODK for being in the top third of my class and will be inducted next Saturday.


Hey there, fellow Griffins! I’m back for another school year of blogging! I’m so happy I get to share my tips, experiences and advice with you all. I’ll give you a little update on where I’m at currently in my life, because its been a while since my last blog.

I am officially in my third year here at Fontbonne. I moved back on campus the second week of August because I was a freshman orientation leader, or WING Leader. I was one leader out of 18 who helped freshmen transition into college through our orientation program. It was my second year being an orientation leader and I absolutely loved it! I had a great group of students and an awesome partner! Orientation is such a great experience! (Below is a picture of me and my orientation group.)1

After orientation wrapped up, I headed straight into classes which unfortunately I already have a lot of homework in. :( I like all of them so far though, it’s just a lot of work! All of my classes are specifically in accordance with my major, so I am done with general education courses which is a blessing! I don’t have to worry about taking a dreaded science or literature class.

Another thing that has been keeping me busy since I started school is the organization that I am secretary for, Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK). Its a national leadership honor society whose alums includes Joe Biden, Peyton Manning, Sheryl Crow and many more. Our applications to be a member of the group went out the day classes started. Myself and the other executive members and faculty advisors have been working hard on deciding who’s a best fit for the group and when we will inform them of our decision. I think being secretary for ODK will keep me busy all year! (Below is a picture of the 2015-2016 Fontbonne University ODK Executive Team.)


Those are just a couple of the many things I’ve been doing since I got back to Fontbonne’s beautiful campus! I’m starting to get my schedule down and get back in the swing of things. I can’t wait to blog for you guys this year! Keep checking back each week for one of my new blogs or a post by another blogger!


The people who have had the most impact on me at Fontbonne are my friends. I became involved in all kinds of activities so that I could meet people. One of the major things I did was join the Fontbonne activities board. I get to help plan all the events and fun things on campus. I also attend the metanioa retreats. This helps me to keep in touch with friends that I met at the beginning of freshman year. I also get to know some people that I don’t know, which is nice. I also planned on being more involved next year by joining the honor society Omicron Delta Kappa.

When Fontbonne Hands you Lemons, Get Involved

by Alumni Posts September 23, 2014

“Why are you so involved?” This was the question my supervisor asked me at work last week when I told him I wasn’t closing because I had to go play in the volleyball tournament for ODK. Although my response was, “I ask myself that question every day,” and those that know me think I’m crazy […]
