Thinking about coming to Fontbonne? Here are some reasons why you should consider this lovely school!!!

1. It’s small. Unlike at a big school where the lectures have 75 students or so, Fontbonne is only a few thousand students, so the classes are like max 30 people. The professors have less students to know so it’s easier to get to know them and most likely you can get to know a lot of the students on campus!
2. It’s in a good area. There are plenty of things you can do while attending school here. Whether it’s going a few blocks down to Delmar to check out the loop, or going to the Galleria or Brentwood. It’s also a few blocks away from Forest Park where there’s tons of fun activities always going on. With winter coming up, the Steinberg skating rink will be opening soon too!!
3. There are a lot of major choices. Whether you’re looking into one of the education fields, nutrition, or something else, Fontbonne has a variety of academic choices.
4. It’s negative wind chill outside, snowing, and your professor still hasn’t cancelled class? Good thing the buildings are only 5 minutes away from each other!

Fontbonne is a nice little school with a big personality. That’s why you should considering coming to Fontbonne today!!

Choosing a college was one of the most stressful, yet enjoyable times of my life. There’s something about starting a future that excites me and ignites my imagination, but at the same time I was overwhelmed with anxiety. Anxiety that had to do with worrying that I’ve made the correct decision, worrying about making friends, and so much more. I didn’t look at very large schools; I knew that I would do terrible in a huge university. All my life I’ve been the type of person to have a few very close friends as opposed to a very large group of friends. So I sat down and really thought about what type of school would compliment me. And I knew that I would be most comfortable in an environment where I know most of the people, and I can really get to know the professors. It has not even been a month but I already know multiple professors very well, and I feel as if I can always go to them for assistance. I could come to Fontbonne, get the major I wanted in Cyber Security, play soccer, and be in an environment I knew I would be comfortable in. The perfect fit. Looking back I can’t help but realize how ridiculous it was to put myself through that much stress, but through that process, I am confident that I am in the perfect school for myself. I’m from St. Charles, so I visit home every weekend, see my dog, my sister, my parents, my girlfriend, and have an amazing meal every Sunday. I get to have all this while doing what I love, playing soccer, and getting a challenging high quality education. It’s all about knowing what school compliments you, and I made the perfect choice.

When I first visited Fontbonne I had a gut feeling that it was the perfect school for me.

Fontbonne was not the first campus I visited.  I was weighing the pros and cons of a handful colleges in the Illinois and Missouri area and as fate would have it, I decided to check out Fontbonne.

I didn’t know much about the university before my initial visit except that it had the major that I was interested in (dietetics).  I remember attending an open house at Fontbonne for prospective students of the dietetics major with my dad.  Afterwards, he couldn’t stop talking about how impressed he was of the professors in the dietetics program that spoke.  I was extremely impressed too, and after getting accepted into Fontbonne and getting to know my professors, I knew I had made the right decision.

Fontbonne is unique in many ways, but here’s what sticks out to me personally:

Fontbonne is a smaller school, therefore it makes it easier to have a voice in the classroom if you’re confused or need further guidance.  Not only that but from my personal experiences, the professors truly care about the students and seeing them succeed.  They take advantage of the small classrooms and use that to give students projects and opportunities they might not have in a big lecture hall-style school.

I love that information is easily accessible at the university.  If you have questions on financial aid, class schedules, registration, clubs, etc., it takes no time at all to find what you’re looking for.  Just ask around and just about everyone is helpful!

I love is how easy it is to get to know people within your classes.  Group projects and just simply being in small classrooms really gets you to bond with those people you’re with. Applying to a school that none of my friends went to was intimidating at first… but I’ve met some of the greatest people right here at Fontbonne and I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

 

I hope this helps any prospective students checking out Fontbonne!

Have a great post-spring break week!

When I was first looking at colleges senior year, I was a bit nervous. I heard all kinds of rumors such as the classes are the size of a theater, the teachers don’t care if you succeed etc…But once I came to Fontbonne, I found all of that to be untrue. Fontbonne has smaller classes, with no more than 25 people per class. Teachers really do want you to do well. In fact, during my first semester, there was one student who never came to class and the instructor was concerned for the person.

One struggle in the beginning was that my parents really wanted me to go to Benedictine college. I visited there to give it a chance but it really did not suit me. It was in a rural area, in the middle of no where, and the people there were very different. It was a culture shock. My parents liked it because of its Catholic identity. However, in the end, my parents agreed that Fontbonne was a more suitable place.

So my advice to all incoming freshman… invest time into finding a place that suits you the best. Its very rewarding to succeed in an environment that helps you reach your highest potential.
