Who Am I?

by Patricia on September 7, 2016

in Academics,Career Paths

My name is Tricia Welch. I am a Senior at Fontbonne this year. I am a double major in Buisness Administration and Management. I am part of the Fontbonne activities board, an SGA rep, and a member of Enactus. I am currently doing an internship with lifework systems. My boss runs a business in her home. She sells professional development programs to different health care facilities. It is my job to put word doc into an excel spreadsheet and call the facilities to get contact information. I am helping her book a conference so that she can sell her programs. Next year I would like to go to grad school at Wash U to get my MBA. However, it is likely I will need work experience first. I want to work in retail and I love sales. For fun, I like to hang out with friends, watch TV, play games on my phone, bake, and go swimming. I am really excited for Fall, but I’m not ready for it just yet. I can’t wait for my favorite show Scream Queens to start and to drink pumpkin drinks. I also love Halloween. I will be doing lots of baking, decorating and going to haunted houses.

This coming year is my last year at Fontbonne. I can’t believe how it’s flown by! While I am incredibly excited, I feel like I’m not ready to leave my Fontbonne family. This last year, I intend to make an impact and hopefully leave my mark.

DeMarcus and I are planning something special. A podcast just for Fontbonne! His brilliant idea has spiraled into a non-stop brainstorming session. We’ve been meeting occasionally over the summer to discuss the structure, format, topics, technicalities, and practicalities.

Our next step is to record a mock-up/test episode that I can edit and spiff up with DeMarcus’ wonderful into and outdo tunes (amazing.) There are a lot of steps involved and right now we are in the very rough, beginning stages. But I definitely think this is an idea worth pursuing.

We would love to hear what you, the Fontbonne population, wants to hear!


This year I embarked on one of the most amazing Spring Break adventure of my entire life.  Though the adventure was full of ups and downs, I wouldn’t have traded anything.  My best friend, Brooke, and I went to three different Charlie Puth shows in a week.  We started with driving four hours to New Albany, IN to visit our friend Jessica.  We spent the night and were able to spend most of the day exploring New Albany.  That evening we traveled to Louisville (about a half hour) to our Air BnB (a website where you can rent someone’s apartment for a short period of time).  Then we made our way to the Louisville show; mind you, we were a few minutes later than what we were supposed to be.  We got all the things and were immediately taken down to Charlie’s dressing room.  It was such a cool experience to walk in to a room and see Charlie sitting casually in a chair. He sang One Call Away in a lower tone to warm up his voice. We got to take a selfie and then stood in line for about two hours after all of that.  We made friends with security and built a relationship with his tour manager.

The Louisville show was amazing and the next morning we were off to Hamilton Ohio.  In Hamilton we got to hangout with Brooke’s family for the day and had such a good time.

The next day we were off to Columbus to see our next show.  On the way to Columbus we noticed a weird smoke coming from my car; we thought this was dust since we were in a construction zone.  Once we realized it was smoke my RPMs starting raving and we had to pull over on the left side of the highway (because we were in the fast lane).  It was approximately 40 degrees outside and we were stuck 6 hours away from our parents.  We didn’t know what to do.

I met some pretty amazing people that day, got to ride in the back of a cop car, connected with Charlie’s tour manager again and got to go on the tour bus to meet Charlie for a second time.  Needless to say, the show was still amazing!

My car was finally fixed and we were celebrating with an Easter egg hunt with Brooke’s family.  Then we were off to our third and final show with two new recruits (Brooke’s cousins).  We managed to get them VIP tickets as well so that they could stand by us.  This time when Johnathan (Charlie’s manager) saw us, we had a greeting of “Friends”.  We were put back into the front row for our final show and it was such an amazing experience.

I couldn’t have asked for a better adventure for my last #FBUSpringBreak.  Check out the video of our adventure below.




This is the beginning of the end. That’s what I keep telling my friends at least. Senior year is upon us….and basically half over. Everything that happens this year is essentially my last as a Fontbonne Undergrad. This is crazy to think about, but also super exciting at the same time. Why so sentimental? Well, I’m nearing the end of my seventh semester here at Fontbonne. It’s absolutely nuts how fast time can fly when you’re having fun. Yeah, everyone says that. Yeah, I’m being super cliché. Yeah, I’m 123% telling the truth. My time spent at Fontbonne has created some of my favorite memories throughout these past 21 years of my life. So in honor of these past seven semesters, let me tell you seven things that I love about being a part of Griffin Nation.

1) Feeling at home

Admit it; you’ve probably gotten this feeling once or twice (or maybe even a few hundred times).

2) Free Shirts


I literally have TWO drawers full of Fontbonne t-shirts at this point…and I have only bought two of them from the bookstore. Riddle me that one. Getting involved = getting a purple and gold wardrobe for days. #Perks

3) Small school benefits

giphy (3)

Speaking of #perks…one of the BEST things about being at Fontbonne is that if you need an answer about something on campus and someone doesn’t know, they usually know someone that knows. When in doubt, phone a friend! It’s fantastic. Another awesome thing? Even if you are running late for class it will probably take you three minutes TOPS to get across campus.

4) Knowing people by name


Yeah, it’s pretty awesome walking across campus and knowing (almost) everyone that you walk past.

5) Not just being another fish in the sea


I’m a face with a name. My advisor knows me personally and has supported me through so much. Pro tip: if you ever feel lost – email your advisor! They’ll set you on the right track.

6) Starting our own traditions


…and seeing them last. With Fontbonne being so small, it’s easy to make an impact and leave a legacy! If you’re super passionate about something, run with it and make it great! Chances are, somebody else is also passionate and will help you soar.

7) Being forever purple and gold


As cheesy as it is…I’ll always be a Griffin. Fontbonne has helped me spread my wings and grow far more than I ever thought possible. As my best friend once said, the circle at Fontbonne is never-ending. As nervous as I am to graduate and head out into the real world…I am SO excited to exclaim that I am a Fontbonne Alumni. It’s quite the place to call your Alma Mater.

Raising the Bar

by Alumni Posts July 6, 2015

Hey Fontbonne! This week has been such a bummer with all the rain and nasty weather we’ve been getting. Due to the weather and having a full work week, I’ve been finding things to keep me entertained indoors. One of those things has been making my own snack bars. Snack/protein bars are my go-to while […]

The Last Hoorah

by Alumni Posts February 10, 2015

Spring 2015. My last semester here at Fontbonne. It’s a strange feeling, and I knew this was coming all along, but somehow I can’t quite believe it. I don’t want to believe it. I think I’ve taken this semester as an opportunity to pack in everything I think I need to accomplish before graduation. This […]

Senior Year is Almost Over.

by Alumni Posts November 17, 2014

My time at Fontbonne has gone WAY too fast. I transferred here with one goal in mind: work hard and get my degree. I didn’t know how my experience would be. This was my third time transferring to a school and I just wanted to get school over with. Fontbonne was more than that. I had […]

Living Like a Grown-Up

by Alumni Posts August 1, 2014

At the beginning of the summer, I moved into my first, very own apartment. It is exciting to be able to call this place my own. Although, it is also weird to think I am like an actual grown up now. After three years of living on campus, I have decided to move on. Whenever […]

Time for New Adventures

by Alumni Posts September 23, 2013

Griffins! Our blogging is back in session! It is officially fall now and my senior year. Time is sure flying and that is what scares me. Eighteen credit load was intimidating when I signed up for classes last semester and now that I am taking them it is not too bad, so far. (Fingers crossed […]

Dedicated to My Griffin Girls!

by Alumni Posts March 4, 2013

Last month was my last official performance as a Fontbonne Griffin Girl! For those of you who don’t know, Griffin Girls is the Dance Team at Fontbonne. We mostly just perform at the halftime of the Men’s Basketball Games, but I know that the team is looking to grow by performing at other events and […]
