St. Joseph Hall

Living on campus has been a whole new and great experience for me. I have enjoy living on campus and I can’t believe we all have to leave our dorms and rommies soon. In this post I will share about some members of the 4th floor of Saint Joseph Hall, where I live. This is a tribute of “Humans of New York” by Brandon Stanton, which is a photoblog of people that live in New York City. I really enjoy having this short interesting conversations with each one of them, hope you enjoy their different thoughts too.

Octavia

“I am studying Anatomy right now. The best way to learn is through visual for me, so I write down all the information, charts, and some vocabulary words. This helps me lot to remember.”

Lilian

“I like living on campus because of all friendships you can form with the people of your floor, also it was a great experience sharing the room with my cousin!”

Austin

“I like Fontbonne because everyone is friendly and easy to get along with.”

Sarah

“I am a big fan of the Cardinals because they represent Saint Louis and I think they are part of the culture of this city. I love baseball! Since senior year of high school I became a huge fan. I love going to the games, and have good memories about it, I always try to go to the majority of their games during season.”

Carli

“This semester was fun, stressful, and I got closer with so many people.”

Sanita

“In the moment I came to the US, I realized that I need to start all over again, and I think I did great. I already can say that I have met here friends who will stay in my life forever. I have lived on the dorms just for four months, but I already have memories with people that I will remember for a long time.”

Raven

“I love Basketball because I grew up playing it. Also, it is a sport that bonds myself and my family.”

Cecilia

“I enjoy watching Downtown Abby because it is in a different time period. You kind of connect with each one of the characters because of their stories. The most interesting for me is what the servants had to go through at that time. I could say Downtown Abby is a funny, dramatic, and fancy show.”

Max

“I really like Fontbonne because of all friends I have made.”

Noella

“I like Saint Louis because there are more things to do than where I used to live. My favorites places to go are the Zoo and Art Museum at Forest Park.”

Sarah

“I love interacting with the residents and building a community. The friends made during the first year of college are friends a person will have the rest of their life. I am glad I get to be a part of that.”

Cassie and Hannah

“We have had the best time sharing a room together, we have a lot of fun having roommate nights and we are also best friends.”

Maddie

“My favorite place on campus would have to be the AMC. It is the perfect study spot and also great place to hang out with friends.”

SNOW DAY!

This is what Fontbonne looked like on our SNOW DAY!!

SNOW DAY MORNING 🙂

A couple years ago, I had my mind made up about how some things were going to be in college before I even started. Well, surprise surprise, many of my assumptions were wrong. But, they were wrong in a good way!

I’m not going to lie, I was a little grossed out about the idea of living in a dorm room. I pictured sleeping in an uncomfortable bed, having zero room for my belongings, plugging my ears from a roommate, and showering in a disgusting bathroom. However, I am very glad I faced these fears and decided to live in a dorm. For one, I feel like I am part of a family on campus. Secondly, it really isn’t that gross! I had my expectations set really low and turned out to be pleasantly surprised by all the perks.

Last year I lived in St. Joseph’s Hall, now I reside in Medaille. Both rooms have extremely comfortable beds (or maybe I’m just a really good sleeper). Also, I can fit a lot more in the rooms than I expected. In addition to the large drawer space, you can fit belongings under the raised bed. If I can fit my numerous shoes (I have an obsession), you can too. Regarding the roommate situation, I lucked out and was matched with someone amazing that has become my closest friend. Finally, the bathrooms are actually not so bad. In The Joe, they are cleaned twice a day.

I shouldn’t have been so negative in the beginning. I think I was mostly just nervous. But remember, every experience is going to be as fun as you make it. YOU decide what your life is going to be like.

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!
