RHA

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 organization that builds “homes- away- home” for families traveling to stay near their children who are hospitalized. Pop tabs, or tab tops are a cheap and easy way to help! Go to http://www.rmhcstl.com/page.aspx?pid=291 to learn more! It is a good cause, but if that is not a good enough reason then you should know that for RHA it in a competition. Fontbonne’s RHA is in a competition with other school’s RHAs to see who can collect the most pop tabs. The winner will be victorious!!! RHA goes to a residence hall conference, MACURH, every year, and that is where the pop tabs go and the winning school is announced. The cool thing about all of this is when you turn in your pop tabs you immediately look for more for next year!! This past MACURH, Fontbonne was the champion of pop tab collecting!!! So grab a bag, search through recycle bins, and COLLECT those POP TABS!!!! Please sanitize. We do not want unwanted germs! When you have too many to count just drop them off at the RHA headquarters, which can be found at the end of the hall on the first floor of St. Joe! It’s quick and easy and helps the world!
Thanks,
Jeanne!

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 Pathology Major and a Psychology Minor, I have more than enough schoolwork to do.

However, I cannot help but stay involved on campus in some way.

It can be tedious work, but I get a lot out of it.

For example, my personal development has gone through much change since I first came to Fontbonne roughly 2 years ago (I cannot believe I’m a Junior already!).

Plus, it makes for great Fontbonne memories.

Just this month, I’ve already….

Helped with events such as Sibs Weekend with FAB (Fontbonne Activities Board).

Attended the Best of Missouri Market at the Missouri Botanical Garden with Environmental Club.

Made guacamole for and attended the FISA (Fontbonne International Students Association) Potluck.

Help put together a Comedy Night with FAB featuring celebrity Ross Mathews and comedian Taylor Williamson.

Helped with facilitating a Zoo Photo Scavenger Hunt with RHA (Residence Hall Association) and CAB (Commuter Advisory Board).

And the month is only almost halfway through!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go prepare for my next class along with preparing for the RHA meeting that I’ll be running soon!

Peace, Love, and Penguin!

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 for diatribes about parking, and Commuter Week will test out the new administration (i.e., me with lots of help from Brent Hickenbottom, the club’s adviser.  I’ll be the first to admit it’s an autocracy.  Trust me, though, I’m definitely working on this, mostly because I’m tired of doing so much work.).  All this is pretty exciting, but by “exciting,” I mean “thrilling and terrifying and exhausting, all at the same time.”

Here’s the schedule:

Monday: Commuter Breakfast from 8:30 – 10:00 in the Griffin’s Nest, Tricycle Races in the DSAC at 12:00, where the grand prize is a $50 gas card.

Tuesday: Commuter Breakfast

Wednesday:  Commuter Breakfast, Commuter Dinner with food from the Pasta House

Thursday: Commuter Breakfast – Brent and Janelle Densberger, the Director of Student Activities, will be flipping pancakes for everyone!

Friday: Commuter Breakfast

Saturday: A joint production by CAB and the Residence Hall Association:  Zoo Photo Scavenger Hunt!  We’re meeting in the AMC at 1 p.m., and will carpool over to the Zoo for the scavenger hunt!  Bring a digital camera and a cord to connect it to a laptop, if you have one!

Then, on Monday, October 10th, we’ll be having the first official CAB meeting of the year! CAB had a slow start (it’s already OCTOBER, for Pete’s sake, and we’re just now having our first activities), but I think this week makes up for it!

Hope to see you some time this week, commuters!

A Weekend at No Frills 2011!

by Erica 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 Erica 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 [...]

Get Involved!

by Erica November 4, 2010

One of my favorite things about going to Fontbonne is the fact that I can be involved in a bunch of organizations that somehow work with my schedule. Getting involved in organizations is a great way to meet new people and have fun at the same time. Everyone is bound to find something that he [...]
