Spring Break Shenanigans

by Sarah on March 28, 2014

in College Life

At the beginning of March I found myself counting down the days until Spring Break!  Not too uncommon for a college student to do so being as the weeks leading up are usually filled with midterms, tests, quizzes, and projects.  But this was my first Spring Break as a college student so it was way more exciting than any of my breaks in high school.  I didn’t do anything to spectacular but I think it was the best spring break I’ve ever had.  I started out by spending a day in Chicago visiting some family and then made my way back home to Wisconsin were I spent a good amount of the week sleeping, spending time with family, and getting together with friends.  I don’t go home very often so I really appreciated my time there.  Halfway through spring break I left for a road trip that entailed traveling through most of the midwest (5 states) and eventually leading back to school.  Again, it may not have been as glamorous as going down to myrtle beach it was definitely a great time!

Now that I’m back I’m still trying to get back into the swing of my studies but I certainly can’t wait for my next break!

I know I’m writing this rather late, but it’s the beginning of the long weekend, and the end of my first week of classes. I can’t imagine how many of us are relieved we’ve gotten this far. The first week, full of syllabi and introductions, fosters an idea of the remainder of the semester. Of course we can’t fully gauge this! Yet, I’m sitting here thinking, “It’s going to be looooooooooooong.”

But what’s exciting is the prospect of change! We’re celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. day on Monday, a great pioneer of change, his presence serving another reminder that, inevitably, the only constant is change. You can see this in what’s happening so far. Like the way the four final candidates for the Fontbonne Presidency are coming out of hiding through student and staff panels. Imagine what kind of changes that will make.

Naturally, it’s hard to imagine how that change will impact us when there’s gas to buy, bills to pay, and people to meet. What I’m getting at here is that even though it’s the end of the first week and our first taste of the semester, I can’t wait to see what else this year will reveal. And I hope you are looking forward to it too. Cheerio!

My favorite place to study is a place where I seem to be almost 24/7, THE LIBRARY! Its a place I can study and also relax. I am pretty known amongst the staff and I have fun talking to them and seeing them pretty much every day. I especially enjoy being at the library late at night because no one is really there. Also, I can get stuff done for Geeking2Gether. Which leads into this weekends fun!

Saturday is International Game Day in The Library. There will be games and pizza! It is from 11-4, I will be there the whole time so stop by play a few games or just say ‘Hi’. Saturday night will be my first time experiencing STL Up Late. I am pretty excited. All I know it is a comedic improv. I can’t wait. Sunday I will possibly be with my family. I hope those plans go through. I miss them and they are only 20 minutes away!

I hope everyone got registered for the classes they wanted. Next semester will start my senior year! It is going to be great. I only have classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays! This is a first. I am trying to get an internship so wish me luck! I am taking: business writing, graphic design 2, writing short fiction, advertising internship, digital publications and market research. I know a lot of writing right? Good thing I love to write!

Until next time..

I love it when the sun is shining, faces are smiling, and good vibes are all around.

Here are some events/activities that happened recently that fulfilled those requirements:

I explored Creve Coeur Park with these lovely people (Iris, Carlos, Ben, and Bryar who isn't pictured).

Fontbonne Current Students and Alumni got together to volunteer at City Seeds Urban Farm with Gateway Greening.

I got to visit Grant's Farm for the first time with a group of Students and Residence Hall Association.

We even got to feed baby goats at Grant's Farm!

Enjoying a spur of the moment picnic at Oak Knoll Park!

Having some picture-taking fun in Medaille Meadow on campus.

Peace, Love, & Beautiful Weather.

St. Louis in the Spring

by Meredith March 26, 2012

It was right around this time last year that I made my very first trip ever to St. Louis. I was in the midst of figuring out what to do with my life. My options were a couple of drastically different directions. Long story short, I could play it safe and stay on the east [...]

Wow!

by Elizabeth March 20, 2012

Psssstt…hey you! Guess what? IT’S SPRING TIME! Maybe it’s not calendar-official, but with the dogwoods in full bloom and green grass everywhere and temps in the 70s and 80s – 80s! – I’m declaring it springtime in the STL. I even saw a bunny rabbit munching on some grass today, which reminded me of the [...]

Spring Weather, Spring Training

by Conner March 9, 2012

I thought I would take this week’s blog to discuss this unbelievably warm weather we are experiencing at Fontbonne. The past couple weeks have been consistently and unusually warm. Spring is on its way and one can surely tell on campus. The dull mood that occurs between the holiday season and spring has been lifted. [...]
