small school

Welcome back everyone!

I am here to share my journey at Fontbonne. I graduated from high school with 75 people. In high school, I played three sports, was involved in multiple clubs, and my mom was the school nurse. Even though I was involved in school and was very comfortable, I never was that outgoing. So when I was searching for schools I wanted a similar atmosphere (small catholic school) where I could really come out of my shell.

On move-in day, I was so excited to get out in a new city and get involved. I was sad to say goodbye to my friends and family but I knew that it was going to be good for me. Below is a picture of my sister and me on move in day.

During Welcome Week, we had activities fair! I signed up for nearly every booth. (note to self: only sign up for what you are really interested in!!) I ended up getting really involved in Griffin Gang! By second semester I was the VP of Traditions. This meant that I would lead all of our traditional events on campus. Through my work with Griffin Gang I got involved in Dance Marathon this year. A group of us worked really hard and attended SLU’s Dance Marathon event. After this Dance Marathon, became its own organization. (Picture below is a group of us at a NACA Leadership Convention)

I came full circle in the two years I have already been at Fontbonne. I went from being involved as a follower to being involved as a leader. So, my greatest advice is to get involved and find your niche. If that is a sport, organization, or even a department club, find the place that helps you grow as a person. College is developing yourself and that is what I can thank Fontbonne for.

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!!
