Fontbonne University was an easy choice for me to attend in the fall of 2015. I knew I wanted to go to a school that offered Fashion Merchandising and had a small community. Once I heard about Fontbonne from my college guidance coordinator at my high school, I knew I needed to go visit. I visited Fontbonne in the spring of 2014 and I fell in love with the campus, the school, and the community. I did look at a few other schools, but none of them had the same impact as FBU. I did not make my decision to attend Fontbonne University until the fall of 2014 when I came back for a second tour. The ambassadors did an excellent job of showcasing the campus and making me feel at home before I was even a student.

Once I filled out my application and received my acceptance letter, the excitement began to build. Senior year seemed to fly by and I began counting down the days until I was able to start the next part of my life. Although I was not sure if I was going to live on campus or not, my decisions to live at Fontbonne was one of the best choices I have made. The community of Fontbonne and the friends that I have made in these few short weeks have been outstanding. I encourage all students to look into living on campus if you are able to do so. The ability to wake up 10 minutes before class and spend every night with your friends is an experience that the Fontbonne Resident Halls have given me as a gift. I am currently the RHA Executive Board Secretary so that I can help be a voice for the students of FBU and continue to promote growth and make on-campus life the best it can be.


If you are a student looking for a campus where you can feel at home away from home in one of the cutest areas of Saint Louis, know a great deal of your classmates, and make friends from all over, come and take a look at Fontbonne and see if you should be a Griffin!




Hello, my name is DeMarcus Davis. I am a junior Strategic Communications major here at Fontbonne University. My role on campus is that I am a student leader and it is extremely exciting! Every since I started my freshman year, I have been heavily involved with a myriad of organizations. I’ve participated in the Fontbonne Activities Board (FAB) , Student Government Association (SGA) , Campus Ministry, Student Alumni Association (SAA), and Residential Hall Association (RHA), just to name a few. I’ve ranged in multiple positions, however, they’re all great things to get involved with and learn life lessons… possibly :) I tend to call myself the well of resources because I know so much about the student organizations to an extent; also I call myself a honorary member of most organizations because I randomly help when I’m not even part of the org itself.

But enough about my awesome amazing life as an active student leader and back to the blog. I am really excited to blog and share the exciting things in my brain. I’ll post on Thursdays and Sundays. Thursdays will be about music and the effects it has on people (just in time for New Music Friday) and Sundays will be the typical “What’s wrong with my life?” post… JK, but you get it. Have a good week and see you on Thursday!


“What classes are you taking next semester?” I am starting to hear that more and more. It is weird for me not to have any classes next semester due to finishing up this semester. So much is happening to me both in school and outside of school. Becoming the President of the Residential Hall Association and finishing up in December are just a few of the school changes. I get to drive again on the 19th of this month since I didn’t have anymore seizures, and I am adopting a dog. I wouldn’t be where I am at without Fontbonne. This place and the people here helped me succeed in life.


I had a good time at the RHA table at Fall Fest. It was a cold night, but it was fun to see everyone celebrating the fall. RHA had a table for decorating cookies. It was a good turn out at the table. It was nice that the cards game was on. I remember last year it was inside, but beng outside was a nice change. There was some pumpkin tables, bowling, a costume table and a few others. There also was two fire pits going so we can all warm up.

Hello everyone, Did you know RHA (Residence Hall Association) collects pop tabs?!?! Pop tabs are those little metal tabs you find on aluminum cans! You can call them pop tabs, soda tabs, or just plain tabs. Either way they are needed! WHY?! RHA collects them year round for the Ronald McDonald Foundation, which is an […]

My Most Challenging Class This Semester Isn’t Even a Class

by Alumni Posts October 12, 2011

Hello to everyone reading this blog! This is my first blog for this semester and there is good reason for why that is. Let’s just say that I’m SUPER involved here at Fontbonne and keeping up with everything can be quite challenging. Don’t get me wrong though, school is challenging enough, and as a Speech-Language […]

Commuter Week!

by Alumni Posts October 3, 2011

Happy Commuter Week, everyone! Commuting is the way to be this week, as the Commuter Advisory Board is pulling out all the stops with its (relative) plethora of events to celebrate all those who don’t operate out of a dorm room.  This is CAB’s first year as an activities-based group rather than merely an outlet […]

A Weekend at No Frills 2011!

by Alumni Posts March 1, 2011

I recently went to an RHA (Residence Hall Association) conference called No Frills. It can be difficult to describe what it is to someone who has never been to such a conference. I would say that it is similar to the MACURH Conference, which can somewhat be explained in my previous blog post if you […]

David Coleman: The Love Doctor

by Alumni Posts February 11, 2011

On Thursday night, Feb. 10, Fontbonne had an event on campus sponsored by FAB and RHA. First, at 6 p.m. there was a very nice sit-down meal provided to guests who RSVPed. The DSAC Cafe area was almost unrecognizable as every table had a nice tablecloth with a fancy centerpiece and place settings. Throughout the […]

A Weekend at MACURH 2010

by Alumni Posts November 16, 2010

I can’t help but put in a shameless plug here and there about organizations/events that I am a part of; I just get excited about them. I was recently with RHA (Residence Hall Association) at a conference called MACURH, which stands for the Midwest Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls. I didn’t know what […]
