St. Louis

With it being officially fall what better to join the weather and the leaves changing colors then visiting Laumeier Sculpture Park.

One of their most recognizable sculptures. One of their most recognizable sculptures.

Located off Rott Road and only 20 minutes from the Arch, Laumeier Sculpture Park is a must see!  You can spend all day walking around discovering all the sculptures that this park has to offer.  There is so much talent lurking around each corner and behind each tree.  But, make sure to grab a map so you don’t miss anything! The park is free and open from 8 am until sunset.  Oh, and did I mention it was FREE?!  Take a group of friends and visit this fun and astonishing park, take lots of pictures, and even a lunch to enjoy.




Fall in Saint Louis is a special time. Walking around Forest Park and going to the Cardinal’s games are actually enjoyable and not uncomfortably hot. Walking from class to class outside and getting to feel the fall breeze encourages activity and productivity.


The feeling of fall has already swept over the Fontbonne Campus with classes meeting in the meadow and the quad and students working on projects and homework outside the AMC on a daily basis. The outside seating area of DSAC is filled with students enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner with company and fresh air.


Fall in Saint Louis is a time to be alive and experience all of the great things Saint Louis has to offer, with some milder temperatures. Take a trip to the Zoo or Grant’s farm, go tour the Arch grounds or explore BallPark Village during the cool evening hours.

Fall in Saint Louis is here and I could not be more excited .


Living and going to school in St.Louis definitely has its perks. There are so many things you can do here! So, for the next couple weeks I am going to show you some of my favorite places to visit to escape the stress and homework of college. I hope you consider visiting these places too! Most of them are FREE!

First up is Creve Coeur Lake in Maryland Heights, MO.  I am lucky enough to live just a few short minutes from here and took advantage of it during the summer.  Here you can rent kayaks, paddleboards, and canoes for just a couple dollars an hour to take out on the lake.  You can take the path that goes all the way around the lake to go bike riding or running.  If you decide to go on a walk here, make sure to take a camera to take pictures of the waterfalls hidden in the woods, the deer you might encounter, or to capture the sun setting across the lake.  It is a great place to escape the city life and release some stress.

About Me

by Adriana on September 19, 2016

in College Life

Hi everybody!

My name is Adriana Salazar, I am 20 years old and I am a transfer student from Ecuador! I think is amazing that we can have this space for sharing opinions and experiences about what we are going through in our lives.

In this post I am going to share 10 things about me 🙂

  1. My home city is called Guayaquil. It is a great city, you will always find something to do and it one of the two biggest cities in Ecuador.
  2. I am bilingual girl. I went to a bilingual middle school and high school, so that is how I learned English. I have to admit that sometimes I struggle with some words and grammar issues.
  3. In my family we are 6. My parents, my two little brothers, and my dog; her name is Lu and she is a beagle.
  4. I want to major in Special Education and maybe minor in Speech Language Pathology. I enjoy interacting with kids and I am very interested in learning about children with special needs.
  5. I am part of Schoenstatt Catholic movement since I was a little girl. Being part of Shoenstatt has been a great way for me to involve God in my life.
  6. I love photography. I have never been in photography course, but I would really like to do one. I just take photos as a hobby. This year I decided to start an Instagram portfolio which is about my city, Guayaquil, the purpose of it is to let people know the different things you can found in the city. The account is called: life_in_guayaquil
  7. I did my first year of college in Ecuador and this year I transferred to Fontbonne. I am currently in my sophomore year.
  8. I choose Fontbonne University because I really like the Special Education program they offer here. I also like the fact that it is a small campus and I think St. Louis is a very nice city.
  9. I listen to different kind of music genres and I am always exploring new music. My favorite soundtrack right now is Fruta Vol. II by Caloncho. It is a mix of tropical beach music, very relaxing, and it is on spotify. If you are having a stressful situation, just listen to it.
  10. I would like to roadtrip South America once in my life.

A Trip to the Art Museum

by Lauren April 18, 2016

Fellow blogger Demarcus and I went on a spontaneous trip to the art museum. I was more than happy to go as the St. Louis Art Museum is the perfect way to relax, destress and get out of your own head. Especially as the weeks dwindle down and the semester nears its end, a little […]

Trip to Jefferson City

by Alumni Posts March 9, 2016

When I first heard the news that I would be visiting Jefferson City for advocacy day, I was really excited and eager to learn more about the legislature and the way policy worked. This was an eye opening experience for me because I was able to see how mean, sarcastic and egotistical some of the […]
