Spirit Week

This week is Fall Spirit Week at Fontbonne, and the theme is Helium Havoc! This means that everything is balloon-related in some way, shape or form. For example, there are balloons all around campus, they are playing the movie “Up” in the meadow on Friday, and this weekend, there is the Great Forest Park Balloon Race going on at Forest Park. Along with those there are also so many other fun events going on such as: Neon Volleyball tournament, Wild Country Wednesday, a night at the Cardinal’s game, and Dueling Pianos.

I went to Dueling Pianos on Monday night and it was such a blast! Two pianos were set up on stage facing each other, and there was one man playing/singing at each one. They would play songs (new ones and throwbacks) and just feed off of each other! The audience could requests songs for them to play as well, and people were up there dancing and singing along! It was by far my favorite event at Fontbonne so far!

 

Helium Havoc!         Dueling Pianos

Armed with a piano, a voice, and a full arsenal of popular songs, dueling pianos was a campus success. Helium Havoc, the school’s spirit week, has brought back a school tradition of two talented people battling with music. The experience gave a sense of comedy and entertainment, which filled the DSAC. The music’s high energy was contagious and filled the audience with the same energy. The highlight of the night, at least for me, was near the end when the familiar tune of “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls began to play. That is when the serenading began and everything got a whole lot funnier. Imagine one male being sung the iconic spice girls tune five females. The atmosphere was full of laughter and joking around, a much needed break.

The fun isn’t over yet, Helium Havoc week is alive and well up until the very end when the helium balloons illuminate the sky this Friday. This enchanting experience will happen in Forest Park beginning at 5 PM and is a sight you cannot pass up. This night is even more ‘up’lifting, as it is followed by a showing of the movie “Up” in the Golden Meadow. The whimsical week of school spirit week ends with a riveting helium balloon race Saturday, also in Forest Park. These opportunities and great experiences within the community of St. Louis cannot be passed up! So grab a group of friends and immerse yourself in the atmosphere that is school spirit week. Go griffins!

I feel as though it has been forever since I last blogged! (When in reality it has only been a month) Ever since Spring Break I feel like I have been in hyper-drive trying to get everything done early so I am not stressed out with all my big projects right around exam time!

Over Spring Break I went to Pensacola, Florida which was a lot of fun, and definitely a much needed and appreciated vacation! I had a lot of fun, but once Spring Break was over it was back to reality of classes, school work, working at Orange Leaf and babysitting! Not much has happened other than staying busy. Last week was Spirit Week and because of work and babysitting I didn’t get to participate as much as I would have liked to, but I did get to go to the Cardinals game which is always a lot of fun with the Fontbonne group! Everyone who went to the dance said they had a great time, and the pictures made it look like a lot of fun! Hopefully next year I will be able to do more with Spirit week! Well, time for me to get back to all that studying and projects!

The Spirit of Fontbonne

by Alumni Posts May 14, 2010

Spirit Week was absolutely awesome this year. I felt that the week brought several students together through the various events that were happening around campus. I had a great time playing water balloon volleyball against some of my friends in the meadow. I also enjoyed the limbo competition as well as going to the women’s […]
