Sibz Weekend

I’m a first year freshman here at Fontbonne. I grew up in the county, but close enough that when out-of-state people or websites ask me where I’m from, I’ll answer “St. Louis.” Last semester, I decided to explore the city I claimed ownership of. I, mostly, avoided touristy destinations (City Museum, The Arch, etc.), having been there for many field trips and day trips. I indulged in my own interests, performing stand-up, improv, sketch, and other comedy shows across the city. I also ate a lot and found some amazing restaurants that I still frequent. I’ll go more into those in another post, since food is very important.

For my second semester, I’ve decided to try out some new on-campus activities. The most I did last year was participate in Sibz Weekend, but forgetting my younger brother was 15 (now 16; happy very late birthday) and outgrew some of the activities. We both enjoyed Justin Willman and the cupcake bar, but who really doesn’t like those things? For what’s coming up, I’m really excited about Big Pink Volleyball this semester. I was invited onto a team by my RA the other day, and it sounds like good, silly fun! Since it’s people on my floor invited, that means I’ll see some of my friends play with me, too. It’s on the 24th, and I hope to see some other people there.

Have a lovely day

This past Friday through Sunday was Siblings Weekend here at Fontbonne. It was an opportunity for my little sister, Kaitlyn, to visit me on campus for the first time since last year. A lot has changed since last year for both of us. She got older and more mature, and our attitude towards each other has turned into a more positive one because she is older and we can talk about real life things.

The weekend started out great with pizza and bingo in the DSAC. Last year at Sibs Weekend we didn’t win at Bingo, so we were determined to win this year. We each had two boards and unfortunately they were not the “hot” boards for the night. We lost but had fun because we were in each other’s company. My friend, Danny, actually won and let Kaitlyn get a prize. We both received kites to fly when we would be together again. It was really nice of Danny to let us have his prizes. Then after Bingo, the Lego movie started, and it was hilarious. Because I was so tired, I fell asleep towards the end. Kaitlyn really enjoyed it too, and actually finished it all. Then later that night there was a build-your-own ice cream bar. We enjoyed the company of my other friends, and then went up to the Griffin’s Nest. We did what we call “Family Game Night,” which is playing cards for hours on end. We played until 2:30 AM, and then finally called it quits.

Unfortunately, Sunday came along. We had a quick breakfast, and she took off for home. It was sad to see her leave after we just had a great weekend together, but we both had to get back to reality — school. On the plus side though, today is Kaitlyn’s birthday, the 23rd of October. As a surprise, I am going home this weekend. It will be the first time I will have gone home since moving in August 9th. I can’t wait to have another fun weekend with my family!

This past weekend was Sibz Weekend here at Fontbonne and I was lucky enough to bring my little cousin, Raimee. She had a blast! Fontbonne Activities board planned so many exciting things for participants to do. The entire weekend was Lego themed, which was such a cool idea!

Sibz weekend began on Friday night with pizza, Lego bingo and the Lego movie. After the Lego movie there was an ice cream bar where you could build your own sundae. It was delicious! Then on Saturday there was a scavenger hunt, an awesome trip to the City Museum and then the night ended with a magic show put on by Justin Willman. Everyone’s minds were blow by Justin’s magic tricks that seemed logically impossible.

All in all the weekend was a success and everyone that joined in on the Sibz Weekend fun seemed to have a great time!

I am so excited that it’s almost Sibz Weekend again! This is an annual tradition that the Fontbonne Activities Board (FAB) started. Being a member of the executive team for FAB, there has been a lot of prep work for this, so I’m eager to see it all finally come together. This is a time for any Fontbonne student to invite siblings, cousins, kids they babysit, etc. to come stay on campus for a weekend. There are many events and activities planned to keep everyone active and having a good time. This year’s theme is all about Legos and is called “Construct Your Own Adventure.” The fun-filled schedule is below.

Friday October 17
-Bingo and pizza
-The Lego Movie
-Build your own sundae bar

Saturday October 18
-Pancake buffet
-Legolympics competition
-Lunch
-City Museum
-Dinner
-Justin Willman performance
-Build your own cupcake bar

Sunday October 19
-Breakfast

Justin Willman performed last year at Sibz Weekend as well, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have him back! He puts on an extremely entertaining comedic magic show. Justin has also been the host of The Food Network’s Cupcake Wars and King of Cones and Disney Channel’s Win, Lose, or Draw. And, he just landed his own show on Comedy Central! He is such a great guy to work with and bring back as a part of the Sibz Weekend tradition. It all begins soon!

Something New

by Alumni Posts October 7, 2013

As you all know, this past weekend was dedicated to our siblings. Unfortunately, both of my sisters are far too mature in age to have come to it! Even so, nothing stopped me from having a little fun myself. Although the Cupcake Wars with Justin Willman, the host of the hit TV show “Cupcake Wars,” […]
