Res Life


It’s A Wrap!

by DeMarcus on August 8, 2016

in College Life

The summer has officially come to an end. My Griffin 101 duties have ended as well as my status as a summer RA. This summer has truly been an adventure. Hanging out with with friends, going to Delaware, and finally piecing together a podcast that I’ve been working on for over a year. To see the hard work pay off is incredible; especially when you’re working with friends that support your ideas and goals even when they seem hazy at first. My Griffin 101 Team has showed me that confidence is key in any situation, Residence Life has taught me how to be more accommodating for other people and that everything doesn’t go as planned. Lastly, I’ve learned from my “roommates” that it’s okay to treat yourself to a night out on the town every once in a while…or every other weekend. All in all the summer sixteen was a success and I wouldn’t trade it for anything else. Now, I am preparing for my senior year and all it has to offer.

See you all in a week!



Room 316

in Campus Community

Room 316 has served as the residential hub for most of the summer residents this far. Before it became a residential hub, it was just a normal apartment on the third floor of the Fine Arts building, also known as Southwest. A little over a month ago, I moved into this apartment with the expectation of just living here and living out my summer RA duties and working in the Department of Leadership Education and Student Activities (name will be changed shortly). Shortly after Griffin 101 training all of those “expectations” soon changed when practically all of my friends (whom are Griffin 101 Leaders) were constantly in my room day after day. Night after night we got to know each other more and within a matter of days we became the best of friends!

Kicking off summer ’16 the six of us; Gabe, Beth, Marki, Jordyn, Stania, and myself, have gone out to the many festivals that St. Louis has to offer and also enjoyed each other’s company. Recently, we have started making family dinners in the kitchen for more of a homier feel. Before we would just go out all of the time but then we realized that is costing us big time so we stopped that real quick. The first dinner was made by yours truly. On the menu that day was chicken nuggets, mac & cheese, and mashed potatoes. The following day Beth whipped up spaghetti with meat sauce, garlic bread, and a delicious Caesar salad. Who knew a home cooked meal could be just as filling as going out to eat?! Long before room 316 started making “30 minute meals,” Marki Miller in room 321 was cooking up a storm. One night she made her infamous Tuna Helper. Marki also added mixed vegtables to make it more of a heartier meal. The following week, she made chicken, mac & cheese with broccoli, and a delicious side Caesar spinach salad. It was literally the best meal ever.

When we’re not having a luxurious meal, we are either watching Netflix or dancing in the main lobby of Southwest. All seven of us live our lives just like any other college student. There is never a dull moment when we’re all together. Stop by room 316 anytime before July 30th.


Hello, my name is DeMarcus Davis, and for the summer I hope to write about my experience as a summer Residence Assistant, my role as a Griffin 101 Peer Supervisor, and my adventures during summer ’16 of my senior year. While the summer here in St. Louis is just getting started, I’ve already done so much. So far, Griffin 101 has been my main priority and is a major success that I cannot wait for the new incoming students to arrive. The team of eight that I work with are amazing and very different from each other, which makes our chemistry awesome. There is never a dull moment when we’re all in the same room. Currently, Griffin 101 is on a three week hiatus and I am starting to having some withdrawals but we recently had a get-together at Chevy’s to catch up with each other. Our next Griffin 101 will be on June 29th and June 30th.

Secondly, being a summer RA is amazing. I’ve been on duty twice so far and it has been a good time. I have spent a lot of time with the apartment coordinator, Brooke, to know the scoop of her experience with Residence Life. At the end of the spring semester, I made the decision that I wanted to work in the department later in life and wanted to know what were the highs and lows of the job. So far, the two of us have had a blast checking new residents into their rooms, traveling all over St. Louis, and making sure that everyone is safe and sound. When the fall semester begins, I am going to miss all of our adventures that we encountered and just having fun at Fontbonne.

Lastly, my summer adventures have only just begun. So far, I attended a movie festival at my friend Lauren’s house (fellow blogger), went to SLAM Underground at the Art Museum, created memories at Ballpark Village, and hosted numerous movie nights in my apartment in Southwest. There is never a dull moment in Room 316. There are still more adventures to come and I cannot wait to share them with you!


Welcome Back!

in Career Paths,Extracurricular

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!

Conversations with My Community

by Alumni Posts November 1, 2010

One thing I really love about Fontbonne is how easy it is to embed yourself in the community. I’ve been very fortunate in my experiences at this school and have gotten a lot of opportunities that I may not have at a larger school. With all these experiences has come the possibility of making friends […]

Sarah- Dunking Booth for R.A.s

by Fontbonne University April 24, 2009

My favorite Springfest memory would be the dunking booth.  Wouldn’t you love to see your Resident Assistant dunked in a huge pool of water?  I know I would and I DID.  It was awesome, because if I was mad at any R. A. I could take it out in the tank!  Honestly, I wasn’t too […]

Libby- From Barely Packed to a Perfect Fit

by Fontbonne University October 22, 2008

The night before I left to go to start my first year of college at Fontbonne University, I wasn’t even finished packing. Not only was I worried about forgetting something, but the thought ‘I’m really starting college’ wouldn’t leave my mind. I had heard college was fun but hard work, but I didn’t really know […]
