Fontbonne Day was last Friday. It occurs one day a year when all of Fontbonne breaks up into groups and goes into various locations to do volunteer work. In the past I did not have a group to go with. This year however, I got inducted into ODK. It is the national honor society for students who are in the top third in their class. Anyway, I got the chance to go with this group this year. Our group when to a local First Baptist Church to do gardening. Me and my friends took out weeds and placed mulch in the garden. Some other people painted the shed. We were rewarded with a delicious lunch afterwards! We had hot dogs, chips, and various desserts. At the end, there was fried chicken! I am glad I participated in this experience!
Hey guys! It’s been a great 2016 so far, and I am excited to be one of Fontbonne’s newest student bloggers. Here’s the basics you should know about me. My name’s Taylor, and I’m a junior here at Fontbonne. I’m majoring in dietetics and minoring in chemistry, and hoping to get into med school after graduation so that I can work in sports medicine, specifically with tennis players. I’m a triplet from from a little town called Ozark, about 4 hours southwest of St. Louis. My brother goes to school in San Francisco, and my sister in Kansas, so we are kind of all over the place right now. Originally, I chose Fontbonne because of their amazing dietetics program, and I thought that I would play tennis here. The tennis thing never happened, and I changed my mind about what career I wanted my sophomore year, but Fontbonne still ended up being the perfect fit for me.
During my 3 years here, I have had the opportunity to be involved on campus in pretty significant ways, whether through my current campus job of being a resident assistant, or through the various organizations I am a part of, including ODK, SAFCS, and Fontbonne ResLife. This place keeps me busy, and I feel like there is always something cool going on here.
The best part about Fontbonne for me would have to be the people. I have managed to find some really spectacular friends here that have kept me going and made me excited about life, and every semester I meet more people here that impact me in different and cool ways. My best friends are people that I really had nothing in common with before I got here, but who have managed to become some of my favorite people in my life.
I hope you guys are having a great 2016 so far, and I can’t wait to share more with you!

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.
