The Joe

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.”

Best Study Spots

by Taylor on April 25, 2016

in Academics

Hey guys! As you all know, finals week is quickly approaching which means it’s time to start studying. Lucky for you, Fontbonne is full of great places to have a good study sesh. Here are all my favorite places:

The Library (obviously)– I usually like to go into one of the study rooms upstairs, but if those aren’t available there are desks all around the perimeter of the floor that will work just as well.

The Meadow– If the weather is nice this is the perfect place to go. There are always tables, chairs, and benches scattered throughout for you to study at, plus it’s the perfect place to people watch. 🙂

DSAC– I love studying here at odd hours like between lunch and dinner time when it is usually pretty slow in there. It’s almost always quiet, and you can get food while you study! DSAC also has a great patio that you can sit on when it’s nice out and see the whole campus from.

The lobby of St. Joseph’s Hall– During the day, it seems like most people head over to the AMC to study, leaving the Joe lobby almost deserted and always quiet. I like studying here during the day because of this and because it’s so bright in the lobby because there are windows everywhere. There’s also always an open computer, which is not always the case in the AMC  or library depending on the time.

 

Where do you like to study? Keep going griffins, the semester is almost over!

There are many ways to tell that you have made friends at FBU. Fontbonne University has a variety of clubs and organizations that students can get involved in. Whether you both start out in the Joe, meet each other in Mission Core, stand together waiting for food from DSAC, or get put together as random roommates, Fontbonne will help you find friends that will help you make it to sophomore year.
1. You text each other to walk to class together, even if one of you is in East and the other in AB, awkwardly going your separate ways once you reach Ryan.
2. You do your laundry right after each other in the Joe, because it is impossible to get two washers at the same time. And you wait with each other.

3. The daily struggle of texting each other and deciding between picking Ryan for lunch or facing the line that awaits you at DSAC.
4. Showering at the same time, so you can have someone to jam out with.
5. Driving to Walgreens at midnight because you’re both craving pizza rolls.
6. Eating those pizza rolls as soon as you get back to the dorm.
7. Promising that you both are going to start “working out” as both of you sit in bed eating ice cream/brownies.
8. Making a trip to the library together to go to the study rooms because neither of you focus when the people two rooms down are obviously having a dance party.
9. Spending all day Sunday watching Netflix and YouTube and continually telling the other that he/she really should start his/her homework.
10. The amazing feeling of being reunited after a long or holiday weekend, when one or both of you went home to visit.

No matter what happens in your freshman year, you will find someone, or perhaps many, who will help you make FBU your home for the next years of you life!!

Well, this school year has definitely had its ups and downs. There were so many memorable moments, and I made lots of great friends. However, it was also very stressful moving away from home and keeping up with all my school work. I joined the honors program here, so I’ve had some harder classes, but I have definitely been challenged in a positive way. It was also great living in St. Louis this year – I got to try Ted Drewe’s ice cream, attend a Cardinals’ game, go to concerts, enjoy Forest Park, and do all sorts of fun stuff! There have been many exciting moments, but perhaps the best part of my first year of college was becoming a member of the third floor of St. Joseph’s Hall. Our floor is basically one big group of friends. We always eat lunch together and there is never enough room at the table, but we make room. We share each other’s clothes, food, joys, and troubles. If I’m ever having a bad day, I can always count on a member of the Third Floor Council to cheer me up. Yes, we have a council. I am truly going to miss my friends at Fontbonne over the summer. Three whole months without them?!?! Ah! Whatever will I do? Hopefully we will be able to stay in touch. Anyway, here is my number one piece of advice to any future freshmen: Make friends, and make good ones. No matter where you end up, there will always be people you can count on. Well, unless you move to like the Arctic circle or the outback or something. I’ve also compiled a list of a few other tips for surviving your freshman year:

1. Don’t procrastinate! Deadlines come sooner than you think, and you don’t want to be rushing to finish a paper at 3 in the morning the night before it’s due.

2. Read the syllabus! It is very important to know when your professor’s office hours are. I’m pretty sure I’ve had to schedule meetings with at least half of my professors, if not more. Although it can seem like a hassle, it is always a good idea to meet with them to ask questions about projects or papers. Not only will your assignments turn out better, but you will also rid yourself of additional stress and the professor will know you are a good student. The syllabus is also great for checking due dates. Like I said in #1, don’t procrastinate.
