I am really glad that the weather is so nice. It started to warm up during spring break and has continued since. Although it snowed last week and I wasn’t too happy about that, the nice weather has come back and I think it will stay. After all, I don’t think it will snow in April. Fortunately, the weather allows us to do fun things outside, such as going to the zoo. My favorite thing at the zoo is the penguin exhibit.
Hey Fonties! Welcome back! I hope your spring break was absolutely fabulous (I’m really sad it’s over… can we have a spring break redo?…. No?…. Okay….). Anyway, let’s jump right into it then. In my three years as a Griffin, I’ve noticed a lot of little golden nuggets that make Fontbonne a great place to learn and grow. Here are my five favorite things that make Fontbonne amazing.
1. The Campus
Being on campus will make you feel like you’ve stepped off of a page of “Better Homes and Gardens.” Fontbonne in the spring is absolutely gorgeous
2. The People
When I say I’m extremely blessed and fortunate to be a part of the Fontbonne family, I mean it wholeheartedly. The people you will encounter on campus will continuously fill your spirit with joy.
3. The Staff
Fontbonne teachers and staff are awesome people. The teachers here take time to get to know you personally, and make it their business to make sure you succeed.
4. The Class Size
You will never feel lost in the shuffle or like another number on campus. The class sizes are small enough so that everyone in the room gets what they need.
5. Your Major

Finally, all students are back from spring break.. After joining the Lacrosse team, I was able to spend my break on campus, sadly watching groups of friends enjoy their time at the famous PCB spring break get-a-way.. I hope all my readers enjoyed their break!
Even with all that being said, during my time this past week, I had a blast here on campus.. I was able to meet with a professor to discuss an exam, which is one thing I really love about Fontbonne! Teachers are always around and if they aren’t, it’s extremely easy to get in touch with them to schedule a meeting. It’s SO nice to know that they’re here for my success! Another thing I really enjoy about Fontbonne is that nearly half of the students live on campus, which means I see new students who commute almost every single day! It’s a great feeling to meet new people and broaden my personal skills as well as enjoy the fun and entertainment that friendship offers!
This past week was Fontbonne’s spring break- a chance to take a break from the craziness of classes, exams, and meetings and have some down time. For my spring break, I made the road trip home back to Minnesota! I was able to see my sisters, my parents, and visit my friends at nearby schools. One unusual thing about this break was the amazing weather! The grass is turning green and the flowers are starting to bloom- the temperature has sky-rocketed up to the 70s and 80s! I could not have asked for better weather during this week off of school. I went for walks with my family, spent time outside by the lake, and enjoyed taking my bike out again to ride around the city. Spring break is a great time to clear your head and relax. Saint Louis has many great concerts downtown during the spring time as well as an amazing St. Patrick’s Day parade and celebration. Spring break also falls right in the middle of the semester, which means that after break there are only a few weeks left. This is the home-stretch, Fontys! Summer will be right around the corner and hopefully this gorgeous weather will continue for us!
