FBU Griffin Nation

Because of Fontbonne I will be able to design curriculum for both the deaf and hearing communities within the Instructional Design & Technology industry as well as provide exceptional online training. I’m so very humbled to be involved in this field because it aligns with skills I already have and are currently enhancing those skills to a whole new level!

I’m thankful to Fontbonne for sending me that “Grad Preview” night post card and me being obedient and open to coming that night. That was a great decision!! #FBUGriffinNation

Fontbonne inspires me to excel in all that I do. It inspired to me to well in my academics. I worked hard in my courses, got good grades , and got accepted into ODK for being in the top third of my class. It also helped me to get internships. I was encouraged to search for a career very early, and I am really glad I planned ahead. Right now I have an internship with life work systems and next month I will find out if I received another internship for this summer. People at Fontbonne encouraged me to give a good impression to potential employers and writing a resume.

Fontbonne also inspired me to get involved on campus. I have met so many amazing people and enjoy seeing them everyday. I am part of the activities board, student government, enactus, and I am also leading the metanoia retreat. (You should all attend). I do not simply go to class and go home, I interact with people on a daily basis. I have become a well rounded person at Fontbonne.

Armed with a piano, a voice, and a full arsenal of popular songs, dueling pianos was a campus success. Helium Havoc, the school’s spirit week, has brought back a school tradition of two talented people battling with music. The experience gave a sense of comedy and entertainment, which filled the DSAC. The music’s high energy was contagious and filled the audience with the same energy. The highlight of the night, at least for me, was near the end when the familiar tune of “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls began to play. That is when the serenading began and everything got a whole lot funnier. Imagine one male being sung the iconic spice girls tune five females. The atmosphere was full of laughter and joking around, a much needed break.

The fun isn’t over yet, Helium Havoc week is alive and well up until the very end when the helium balloons illuminate the sky this Friday. This enchanting experience will happen in Forest Park beginning at 5 PM and is a sight you cannot pass up. This night is even more ‘up’lifting, as it is followed by a showing of the movie “Up” in the Golden Meadow. The whimsical week of school spirit week ends with a riveting helium balloon race Saturday, also in Forest Park. These opportunities and great experiences within the community of St. Louis cannot be passed up! So grab a group of friends and immerse yourself in the atmosphere that is school spirit week. Go griffins!

One thing I would like to do during my time at Fontbonne is to attend an athletic event for every sport. If you look at the Fontbonne athletics page (which is http://www.griffinpride.com/athletics/ by the way) you’ll see that Fontbonne has baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, track, volleyball, bowling, softball, and dance. So far I’ve been to a game or two for most sports (and more than a few track and cross country meets), but I still have a few to check off the list.

There are plenty of opportunities to support the Griffins, especially during home games. It may not be the same experience as, say, going to a Mizzou football tailgate (you will notice, perhaps, that Fontbonne’s football team is rather… nonexistent), but it’s always a good feeling to support your school. I know my last blog was hawking the joys of going to a track meet, but now I’m extending my challenge to any and all sports. Get out there and cheer!

Go Purple & Gold

by Alumni Posts March 21, 2012

The question was posed, “How do you share your Fontbonne school spirit?” I knew that when I started looking into Fontbonne and the Pathways program that I would not be the typical on-campus student. In reality, I live about four hours away. What I found out is that Fontbonne’s colors were purple and gold, which […]

Supporting My Fellow Griffins

by Alumni Posts March 9, 2012

Hi there! How do I show my school spirit?  Well… I guess I show my enthusiasm for the school community mostly by supporting other groups’ events.  I’m not in every club on campus, but I end up attending lots of groups’ events because I know the people running them or I have friends in the […]

Spirit Week 2011

by Alumni Posts September 26, 2011

Well, last night concluded spirit week 2011, and what a week it was!  I got more involved than I planned on, but I do not regret my decision one bit. This past Monday we had a sand volleyball tournament at Concordia Seminary. There was a great turn out, and my team actually won. We won […]
