Why is FBU so special!?

Finally, all students are back from spring break.. After joining the Lacrosse team, I was able to spend my break on campus, sadly watching groups of friends enjoy their time at the famous PCB spring break get-a-way.. I hope all my readers enjoyed their break!

Even with all that being said, during my time this past week, I had a blast here on campus.. I was able to meet with a professor to discuss an exam, which is one thing I really love about Fontbonne! Teachers are always around and if they aren’t, it’s extremely easy to get in touch with them to schedule a meeting. It’s SO nice to know that they’re here for my success! Another thing I really enjoy about Fontbonne is that nearly half of the students live on campus, which means I see new students who commute almost every single day! It’s a great feeling to meet new people and broaden my personal skills as well as enjoy the fun and entertainment that friendship offers!




My degree I am working for is nursing. I have aspired to be a nurse ever since I could remember. There were two situations that occurred when I was ten and thirteen that solidified my decision. My first one was in my house. My little brother and sister and I were racing to the swimming pool. As we turned the corner into the kitchen my brother slipped right into the wall corner. He was about five years old at the time and cut a pretty good sized boo boo on his forehead. Immediately, I grabbed the nearest fresh towel and applied pressure to his cut. I picked him up and carried him to the car yelling for my mom and dad and off we went to the hospital.

The second incident was in South Carolina on an island called Daufuskie. My cousins were racing their bikes and crashed into each other. I get a phone call to come over and take a look at their injuries because their mothers were about to be sick from all the blood. I cleaned them up and told them everything was going to be “ok” and off they were back on their bikes. I love caring for other people when they need help. I can make rational decisions while everyone is in panic mode. I feel like a nursing position is a good choice for me.
