Turkey day!

by Corie November 26, 2012

Hey Griffins! Thanksgiving was a few days ago and I had a wonderful time with my family. I’ve been thankful for a lot this year. My number one would be my family; they are always there for me and have been really supportive. I’m also thankful for my boyfriend and his family. Over the summer [...]

Count Your Blessings

by Courtney November 21, 2012

“I’m just having the worst day…” “That man in there is going to have to learn how to walk again without a leg, and the woman down in 501, she’s going to be told that she has stage four pancreatic cancer.  You’re not having the worst day.” The above dialogue is from my new televised addiction, [...]

Happy Thanksgiving

by Carlyn November 19, 2012

Considering Thanksgiving is this week, I figured it was a good time to talk about food (well, I guess it always is, but especially now). I don’t consider myself a picky eater; I’m usually willing to try anything. However, there are actually a few traditional Thanksgiving foods that I’m not too crazy for. One, turkey. [...]

Whoosh! Goes the First Semester

by Conner October 25, 2012

Is it really the last full week of October? I cannot believe how fast this first semester is flying by! It seems that each week is busier than the last. Before I know it it’ll be Thanksgiving. But that’s still a few weeks away, and I focus on the present. This week is an exciting [...]

Thanksgiving Work

by Allison November 28, 2011

Thanksgiving break came and went in the matter of a snap. I had a long list of things I needed to complete over the five days, but now I am playing catch up with all my school work this Monday and Tuesday. It’s fine with me though because I spent a lot of my time [...]

Thankful for Breaks

by Madison November 28, 2011

Old clichés always seem to get the best of me. Everyone knows the phrase “you don’t realize what you have until it’s gone.” I always knew how great my family and friends were, but only getting to see them during the holidays makes that time spent with them even more special. I love attending Fontbonne [...]

Thanksgiving Travels and Plans

by Alumni Posts November 28, 2011

I got up at 4 a.m. to take Brad Soble to the airport for his 6 a.m. flight. Why is he leaving so early? Frankly, I have no idea, but that’s beside the point. I too am leaving today for upstate New York, around 2 p.m. This is a pretty great week – there’s nothing [...]

The E-Book Experiment

by Elizabeth November 28, 2011

Over the summer, I got it into my head that an e-reader would be an awesome thing to have for school because it would save me from having to carry around a bunch of paperbacks for class.  (You know, because I take so many incredibly reading-intensive classes as a computer science major…) Before school started, I purchased [...]

Right As I Want You, Right As You Run

by Carly November 28, 2011

On my desk sits a huge calendar with every assignment due date and test date penciled in. Monday, December 12th, is a little different from the other days, though, with the label: “You survived the Worst. Semester. Ever.” My classes for next semester are in the system (only seventeen hours…what a relief!), and as I [...]

Running Down a Dream

by Marielle November 28, 2011

Well, I had my last cross country meet of the season last weekend, and I must admit I miss it already. Waking up and running solo just isn’t the same as waking up and running with my team (although I must admit, not waking up quite as EARLY to run is a huge plus). But, [...]
