#Pressimone14

What an eventful week these past seven days have been! This past week was dedicated to our new university president, Dr. Pressimone. The week was filled with lectures, panels, Dr. Pressimone’s official inauguration, investiture receptions, a fall festival, and a ball to end the week and celebrate the inauguration on Saturday.

My favorite event by far was the inaugural ball on Saturday. It was held at the Science Center just a few minutes from school. The ball was held in a private reception area that was decorated beautifully! Staff, faculty, students, staff, alumni, and the Pressimone clan were all in attendance and everyone seemed to have a great time! There were appetizers, a dance floor, a dj, and a photo booth complete with fun props! I don’t think anyone will forget the fun they had that night!

The week as a whole was definitely one for the books! Not only was it an important part for Fontbonne history, but a week long celebration of fun!

This week Fontbonne University officially welcomed Dr. Pressimone as the fourteenth president of the university. Many events took place throughout the week, the final one being the Inaugural Ball. The Inaugural Ball took place at the St. Louis Science Center including the long skyway that goes across I-64E. The event included a mashed potato bar, a photo booth, and plenty of dancing! This was an event to celebrate Dr. Pressimone and his family and conclude the inauguration week. The event was vlassy one open to students, staff, faculty, and friends and family. It was such a blast! The DJs played a wide variety of songs and the dance floor was constantly crowded! The event was very class and overall a great end to a great week!

Here are some pictures from the photo booth and the fun props:

This week was inauguration week and it was super exciting. Fontbonne always has events going on, but this week we had events almost everyday. I got the chance to attend the Last Lecture series. Dr. Sommer spoke, but no worries — he’s not actually going away. The premise of the last lecture series is one question, “If this were your last lecture, what would you tell the students?” This simple question proposed can make you think of a lot of answers. Dr. Sommer, in my opinion, kept it simple yet still sent a powerful message. The room was full of people; the Lewis room was packed with people anticipating him to speak and the energy was great. The simplicity spoken to everyone in the room I believe when he said that the central theme was to just find yourself. Knowing who you are and when to release it is also essential. The last lecture left a lasting impression on me with the latter statement.

The Last Lecture was fantastic, but it’s not over yet. This weekend is the official ball to welcome our new president, Dr. Pressimone. Bring your gowns, suits and ties because it’s meant to be a beautiful night. We also have the official inauguration ceremony for Dr. Pressimone and it will be just as magical as the ball. Can’t make it? No worries, it will be live streamed! It should be available when the actual ceremony takes place tomorrow on November 14th. Inauguration week is exciting and new. A new president means new beginnings, but not taking away from the tradition at Fontbonne. In the years to come we will build upon the old and form new exciting traditions, achievements, while remembering where we came from.

Inauguration Week is here! There has been so much discussion, planning, and hype about this week since the end of last spring semester. Fontbonne has a new president who started this year: Dr. Mike Pressimone. In celebration of his beginning at Fontbonne, the week of November 10-15 has been dedicated to welcoming events.

Through my involvement in Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK), Student Government Association (SGA), and Fontbonne Activities Board (FAB) I have helped plan three events for Inauguration Week. ODK is hosting Last Lecture, which is an annual speaker series. Dr. Sommer, who has been a longtime professor at Fontbonne, is delivering a speech. Then, there is a nice dessert reception to follow. SGA is hosting the Fall Festival, in which all the student organizations across campus run various game and craft booths. Finally, FAB is ending the week with a formal Inauguration Ball. This is not like a traditional student school dance held on campus. Faculty, staff, students, alumni, and anyone in the Fontbonne community are invited. Also, it is held at the Science Center. I am so excited to see everyone dressed up and having a fun, fancy evening together. Dr. Pressimone’s entire family will be there as well (which includes 12 kids!).

Stay tuned as the week unfolds. I’ll come back and post pictures from various Inauguration Week events.
