Southwest Hall

Room 316

Room 316 has served as the residential hub for most of the summer residents this far. Before it became a residential hub, it was just a normal apartment on the third floor of the Fine Arts building, also known as Southwest. A little over a month ago, I moved into this apartment with the expectation of just living here and living out my summer RA duties and working in the Department of Leadership Education and Student Activities (name will be changed shortly). Shortly after Griffin 101 training all of those “expectations” soon changed when practically all of my friends (whom are Griffin 101 Leaders) were constantly in my room day after day. Night after night we got to know each other more and within a matter of days we became the best of friends!

Kicking off summer ’16 the six of us; Gabe, Beth, Marki, Jordyn, Stania, and myself, have gone out to the many festivals that St. Louis has to offer and also enjoyed each other’s company. Recently, we have started making family dinners in the kitchen for more of a homier feel. Before we would just go out all of the time but then we realized that is costing us big time so we stopped that real quick. The first dinner was made by yours truly. On the menu that day was chicken nuggets, mac & cheese, and mashed potatoes. The following day Beth whipped up spaghetti with meat sauce, garlic bread, and a delicious Caesar salad. Who knew a home cooked meal could be just as filling as going out to eat?! Long before room 316 started making “30 minute meals,” Marki Miller in room 321 was cooking up a storm. One night she made her infamous Tuna Helper. Marki also added mixed vegtables to make it more of a heartier meal. The following week, she made chicken, mac & cheese with broccoli, and a delicious side Caesar spinach salad. It was literally the best meal ever.

When we’re not having a luxurious meal, we are either watching Netflix or dancing in the main lobby of Southwest. All seven of us live our lives just like any other college student. There is never a dull moment when we’re all together. Stop by room 316 anytime before July 30th.

Being a student at Fontbonne University has many perks. The best perk, in my opinion, is having everything you need to be a successful student available for you within walking distance. Since Fontbonne University is a small campus, it has everything that is needed to run an institution in a just a few buildings. There are only five buildings on campus that your classes could be in if you are a native English speaker. (Fontbonne has some more class space in the St. Joseph Hall, a dormitory for all freshmen resident students, for English As A Second Language courses).

Navigating campus is so easy that it is very difficult to get lost. If you realize that you are in the wrong building for your classes, it is always going to be somewhere close. I sometimes get my schedule mixed up on some days, but fortunately, it only takes me a minute to make my way over to the correct building. Every building is labeled with a recognizable sign, so you should not have a problem identifying either of the five buildings: Ryan, East, Anheuser-Busch, Library, or Southwest. Southwest is just a little bit off the beaten path, but is still on school grounds. There is a Campus Bookstore on the first floor of the Ryan Hall that is open every day except on holidays, so it is easy to purchase something you need for class there.

If you are hungry, you can grab a quick meal at either of the dining options, Ryan Dining Hall or Griffin Grill at the Dunham Student Activity Center, that are located just behind the main part of campus. There is also a gymnasium, track, and completely-equipped work out room that you can use to let out stress. When you go on your tour around campus, you will see for yourself why being a student at a small campus is actually quite lovely.

I hope you like Fontbonne as much as I do!
