The Department of Leadership, Education, and Student Activities. Whoa, that’s a mouthful. Better known as DLESA, this department hosts a few major campus organizations at Fontbonne, one of which I’m a part of. Omicron Delta Kappa falls under the DLESA umbrella. As we near the final days of the semester (yikes), the department was kind enough to throw the bundle of student leaders on campus an End of the Year Party. This just happened to be a trip to Busch Stadium for a Cardinals Game, complementary nachos, and Ted Drewes after.
It was an enjoyable night! Although it rained off and on, the Cardinals ended up losing, and the game ended significantly past the closing of Ted Drewes, it was still a great night with fellow students. I can’t fathom to think that this time next week my junior year of college will be basically complete, and just a few weeks after that I’ll be boarding a plane to London for the entire summer.
Monday night was a night full of memories, but that is what my entire year has been, thanks to Fontbonne. It’s nights like Monday that I’ll look back on and cherish. I just have to hang on for another week. Let the finals begin!
Ready for the game to start!
Thanks for reading..
To earn money that goes directly towards tuition, I have an internship with the Department of Leadership Education and Student Activities. I started this last semester and had a great time helping promote events, set up, and bonding with my fellow interns and the staff. So far, I am enjoying it even more this semester. One of my projects is to develop and run biweekly trivia nights on campus. Considering I am very into pop culture, this job is perfect for me. I come up with all the questions, themes, and host the actual event. The assistant director of student activities at Fontbonne, Joel, helps me create flyers and promote the events through Twitter (#GSOPC). Typically, the trivia nights start at 8:15 every other Tuesday in the DSAC Caf’. However, this week it will be on Wednesday since the last home basketball game is on Tuesday. This week’s theme is “Broken Hearted.” The questions revolve around celebrity breakups, breakup songs, and other famous relationship drama. Hopefully this tradition will continue to grow and I thank everyone who has been participating (and hope they’ve been having as much as I have been!). Other trivia themes are as follows (the first two have already successfully been completed).
House of Mouse
Revenge of the Nerds
The Scoop on Hoops
I Love the 90′s!
When somebody is talking about St. Louis, what comes to your mind?
For me, the answers always are the Gateway Arch and the St. Louis Cardinals.
The St. Louis Cardinals are a well-known baseball team based in St. Louis, Missouri. Before studying in St. Louis, I only watched Cardinals on TV when they won the World Series. But, now, I am so lucky I can go to downtown St. Louis and watch a Cardinal’s game in Busch Stadium.
October is an important month for baseball game. Everyone pays attention to watch the game on TV, because it’s the season for gaining the World Series (WS) championship.
Cardinals won for the NLDS (Nation league division series) last week, the miracle for the “Angry Birds” happened again. Let’s celebrate it.
Fontbonne’s students are so lucky because student activities provided the chance to buy special price tickets to watch Cardinals at Busch Stadium. The student activities department also offered students chances to watch the Cardinals’ game on campus together, and gave students snakes and pizza during the games. Therefore, students wouldn’t miss any chance to cheer for our excellent Cardinals. For sure, I also joined the activity to watch and cheer for our Cardinals.
Hoping the miracle for Cardinals will happen this year again.
Let’s celebrate it in advance. Go~ Go~ Cardinals!
Coming down from all the excitement in St. Louis this weekend, on Tuesday night I snapped back to reality and remembered I had big projects ahead of me and needed to buckle down. I had intended to blog about how exciting Friday night was because the Cardinals won the World Series and the on Sunday the Rams won their first game right before the Cardinals celebration parade on Sunday. Then Monday, Tony LaRussa announced he was retiring which was kind of sad, but he went out on a high note! David Freese has been the buzz everywhere! He was on Leno (or was it Letterman?) AND Ellen! He was even at the Galleria mall last night…So close, and I still didn’t get to see him
But other than all the exciting St. Louis stuff, I have been working and going to class all week and working on projects and papers diligently. As soon as I feel like I have gotten ahead in classes, I always get more work assigned. Typical. But I can’t complain too much, I knew what college held for me and I wouldn’t want to give this up! I love college!
