New year, new people, new dorm, new blog post. There are lots of new things happening this year. Since I am now a sophomore, I have moved over to Medaille Hall, and no offense to The Joe, but I am liking Medaille much better! Since I am in Medaille, I have access to the Griffin’s Nest. You’re probably wondering what a Griffin’s Nest is — it is the 4th floor of Medaille, and it has a kitchen, lounge and games. It is a pretty awesome place. It is open to all students, but it much more convenient going up to it now that I live in Medaille.
My friends and I have really been taking advantage of the Griffin’s Nest. Every Tuesday we gather there and we make a homemade dinner, and we call it “Family Dinner.” ‘Cause if you can’t go home for family dinner the next best thing is to enjoy a meal with your school family. It really is a nice feeling to sit down and share a meal that you made with some friends, and it also has the perks of great dessert! Tonight I will be enjoying Shrimp Linguni Pasta and cookies, it sounds good just typing it. So, tonight when you sit down for dinner with your family, enjoy it! Don’t take it for granted!
See you next week,
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 good at it, to tell you the truth! But I pulled some strings and had a friend dunk the R. A. of my choice. It was great to see their shocked face of being dunked. They will look at me differently now! I hope they held their breath. HAHAHA. After being dunked they had to walk around in the wet clothes. Fantastic!!!
Another memory would have to be the stupendous inflatables that were at Springfest last year. So I challenged a good friend of mine to a duel! It was awesome. We climbed up to a podium-like space with jousting poles, one for each of us. Then we would try and force the other person to lose their balance. I was planning on showing my friend who’s the boss of that game; unfortunately, she ended up showing me who’s the boss. Anyways, if you lost your balance you would fall on a large inflatable. So all’s good! Even though I was horrible at that game, I still will always keep it dear to my heart.

I have many favorite things about Fontbonne University. First, I love how the school plans lots of exciting activities for all the students. For example, there was a free haunted house tour on Halloween and movie nights once a month for free. The students can have good clean fun without spending money. Next, I enjoy the extracurricular opportunities, including student government, campus ministry, and multicultural organizations. These all offer students the chance to make a direct difference in the community. Third, the employees at Fontbonne are wonderful people who always lend a helping hand when you need it.
So far at Fontbonne, I have loved running cross country and being involved in a variety of clubs and organizations. The friendships I have built so quickly are remarkable and special. I enjoy the chance to live on campus and develop more independence and time management skills. The people in my residence hall have truly been awesome and have come from many different places. I have learned so much about people, education, and personal skills at Fontbonne University. It has been an excellent place for me throughout the first two months
