Transfer

Even though this is my third year of college, this is only my second semester at Fontbonne.  I previously attended Truman State University as an English Education major. But, I soon realized I wanted to get into the health field and found myself fascinated with dietetics. I chose Fontbonne not only because of their beautiful campus, but also because of how welcome I felt as soon as I stepped on campus, how the teachers become your biggest supporters, and of course, because of the great dietetics program.  If you’re new to Fontbonne, I hope you fall in love with the university just like I did.

This is my second semester at Fontbonne and my first fall semester. There are definitely some noticeable differences between the spring and fall semesters. First is the larger swell of new students. People are coming in fresh out of high school, transferring in from other colleges, or even coming over from other countries. It’s cool to see so many new faces walking around campus. I’m an art major, psych minor, so most of my classes are in the art building. There have been several freshman that I was able to help find their classroom, as the art building can be a little confusing, and that felt pretty good. There are also classes offered just in the fall that I’ve been fortunate enough to sign up for and, so far, the experience has been above and beyond my expectations. Being able to catch up with friends and classmates from last semester has been a great way to pass the time between classes and actually having a place to park every class day has been beyond awesome! Overall, I would say it has been a great start to the new semester. I can’t wait to see what other new things I’ll get to learn as the semester progresses.

Cheers!

First of all if you read the my title as Franklin instead of Katelynn you and I are now best friends! I want to tell you a bit about myself as we kick off the semester. As I said my name is Katelynn Sandvoss, I am a freshman transfer, Secondary Special Education (concentration English and Literature) here at Fontbonne. I have my own personal blogging website but this is my first time blogging for anything other then that, so I’m really excited to be sharing that experience with you! I’m a huge list maker so here are 6 random things about me so we can get to know each other.

  1. I’m from Sullivan, MO (a small town about an hour outside of St.Louis)
  2. I have cerebral palsy, a non-progressive physical disability
  3. I’m the oldest of two, my younger brother Donnie is a sophomore in high school
  4. My FBU extracurricular activities: Griffin Gang and Campus Ministry
  5. LOVE all things Disney and Harry Potter
  6. LOVE all musical genres (except country…)

I look foreword to writing for you this semester!

Stay Awesome Everyone!!

The semester is almost over and hopefully all of you are feeling that you didn’t hold anything back! I don’t know about you but my first swim of the year is always better when I feel that I did the best I could possibly do.

This week is about sharing the most important thing I learned this semester. I learned a lot in my one year in STL but this semester was especially significant. It has taught me (or I taught myself, either way) that life is too short to do the same things, day in and day out. Yes, routines are healthy and important when chasing success but that’s not what I mean. When faced with a decision to do something you’ve done before or something new, always chose the latter! I’m sure there are things that were so much fun you just want to do them over and over, but trust me when I say it’s better to try new things! In my one year living in STL, I have faced many decisions on where to eat or what bar to go to. I always try a new place and insist on staying away from doing things twice because I enjoy keeping things excting, new, and adventurous. In transferring from my old school, which I loved, I have learned that it doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing, you control your own happiness!

Also, Fontbonne Lacrosse’s senior day is this Saturday April 25th at Gay Field. I am the only senior and would appreicate any support I can get to help us get our first win! Go Griffins!

The College Challenge

by Fontbonne University April 13, 2015

The biggest challenge in college, so far, for me has actually been the act of going back to college. I tried going for the first time when I was just out of high school. I took two semesters at a local community college back home and it was nearly disastrous. I thought I wanted to […]

First Semester So Far

by Fontbonne University February 6, 2015

The moment I stepped onto the Fontbonne campus for my first day of classes just four, short weeks ago, it felt like a homecoming of sorts. The old, brick buildings, and even older trees, spoke of strength, endurance, and a solid foundation on which to continue to build my dreams and goals. Everyone I met […]

New Places, New Faces

by Fontbonne University September 12, 2014

My first few weeks at Fontbonne have been AMAZING! I am from St. Paul, Minnesota and transferred to Fontbonne this semester from the University of Minnesota, so I am a long way from home! I got accepted to Fontbonne last spring, was granted a generous scholarship, and then everything just fell into place! I couldn’t have […]

A challenge in my life

by Alumni Posts October 24, 2012

A challenge for me would be getting to where I’m at today. I’ve had a few road blocks in my life. I have a math learning disability which made it hard for me to try and get my AA degree due to passing a high level math course at the community college. I tried year […]

School is kicking in.

by Alumni Posts September 20, 2012

Transitioning from a junior college to a university is not as overwhelming as it would seem. It is a lot more hard work than I thought it would be, but I’m up for the challenge. I’ve had two tests this week and next week I have two papers due. First time for everything, right? School […]

New school year, new school

by Alumni Posts September 11, 2012

Hello, Griffins and future Griffins! My name is Corie and I am a transferred junior here at Fontbonne. I am from Plainfield, Illinois. Plainfield is about an hour south of Chicago. I usually tell people I am from Chicago because no one knows where Plainfield is located, so Chicago is easier. I like to spend […]
