Well folks, I’ve survived my first month of junior year! (pats for Raven!) and I am so happy to be back! After a long and exhausting summer, I can honestly say that I was becoming really bored. So you can imagine my excitement when the first day of classes finally came. I was pumped! I had missed Fontbonne over the summer, so I was ready for some new challenges! I have some classes that I am really excited about. One class I’m really looking forward to is my civil rights film course. When I enrolled in this class last spring, I was extremely interested in the premise of the course.  I consider myself a self-declared nerd, so if I can learn more about a specific time period, I’m all over it! Another thing I’m pretty pumped about would be the activities. This semester, I promised myself that I would be involved more, so I have to keep that promise to myself. I got a chance to attend an event last night and I got a chance to meet our new president Dr. Pressimone. I must say that Dr. Pressimone seems like a really cool guy who is very dedicated to changing lives and helping Fontbonne be the best it could be. Welcome Dr. Pressimone! I also got a chance to meet our new vice president of student affairs, Joe Deighton, this week as well. He was very nice person and showed a great level of dedication to getting to know the campus and everyone in it! Welcome Mr. Deighton! All in all, my first impression of the new semester was that we are gonna have an amazing year together! Welcome back everyone! And a warm welcome to the class of 2018!

“Welcome Back!” It’s a very common phrase I’ve heard when I came back to school a few weeks ago. I feel so excited that I just started my spring semester, which is also my second semester at Fontbonne. Even though it was so cold outside, student and staff are still so friendly to say “hello” to me.

For this new semester, I’d like to share a quote from Mother Teresa, to encourage you and me: “Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” I will keep my smile when I see you on campus. Welcome back, my dear friends. Let us celebrate it with lovely smiles!
