Well, hello everyone! I am Ebony, no stranger to the world of blogging but brand spanking new to the student blogging community here at Fontbonne University. This is an exciting opportunity and I look forward to sharing with Fontbonne’s faithful blog readers.

Now, let me tell you a little bit about myself.

First of all, I love being a student (I know. Nerd alert, right?)! I came to Fontbonne from another institution in search of a better quality business degree program. I enrolled in courses through the Options program and have been pleased with my decision ever since.

I enjoy reading good books while sipping a chai tea latte, writing poetry and working on a novel that probably should have been published years ago, movies starring Johnny Depp and sushi. Oh, how I love sushi (and Johnny)!

I am a regular on a few different blogs, including my own. I volunteer for a non-profit organization geared toward mentoring young ladies ages 8 to 18 and am an active member of my church. And, a lover of politics, I may have a slight addiction to CNN and MSNBC. I’ve really got to stop watching those channels!

Lastly, I love spending quality time with my new baby daughter, whom I affectionately call Lovebug. She was born over the summer and has completely changed my life for the better. Lovebug is barely three months old, but that didn’t stop me from lecturing her on the importance of higher learning the day I brought her with me to the main campus’ bookstore. “Someday, you’ll go to school just like Mommy,” I told her. She yawned several times during my lecture but I am certain that I got through to her! Ha!

As a writer, I strive to entertain my readers as well as provoke thought on issues that affect our individual lives. I hope that I can do this, throughout the semester, for you all! Thank you for the opportunity and I wish you all a great school year!



My name is Erica Van Buren and I’m currently a senior here at Fontbonne University. For me, 24 hours is not enough time to juggle work, school and family. I’m majoring in English, and I’ve recently decided that my part time job gives me lots of writing material. At the moment I’m employed part time with the Transportation Security Administration and working at the airport — you see and hear some really interesting things. After graduating, I’m hoping to be able to dedicate myself completely to my notebook of weird and crazy things via the airport. I would love to get it published. Stay Tuned…

My name is Whitney Vehige, and I am a junior at Fontbonne. I am majoring in speech/language pathology and minoring in psychology. I live about an hour out of St. Louis and commute to school. I chose Fontbonne for their excellent speech/language pathology program and have never regretted the decision. Even though I am busy with school and work (I am a nanny), I still make time for me. I love hanging out with my friends and reading a good book. Well, now that you know a little about me, I just want to wish everyone a happy school year, and I can’t wait to post my weekly blog for all of you all!


Hey ya’ll!!

My name is Jessica, but I go by Jess!! I’m 21years old and this is my first year at Fontbonne!

I’m a third year transfer from St. Charles Community College. I’m an Elementary Education major! I grew up in St. Charles, about 30 minutes away from here, and went to Orchard Farm School District for all 12 years! I graduated with less than 100 people — it was pretty small school! I was really involved in high school and an officer for many clubs/organizations, and I still go back to my high school to volunteer and help out for the organizations!

I have one sibling, Jolene; she is almost 18 years old and a senior in high school. My parents will have been married for almost 22 years in just a few weeks! My dad owns his own company, Circle C Solutions, and my mom works from home for a corporate travel agency in the area.

I’ve held many jobs, but my most recent one was at a local daycare not far from my house. I was the secondary teacher in the infants room and I LOVED it!! I miss my kiddos very much!! I love working with children and I really can’t wait to have my own classroom and teach children!!

My boyfriend also goes here, he is a senior and a Religious Studies major! We’ve been dating for four years (in one week that is!) We met in high school, I yelled at him and he didn’t like me very much at first, but I won him over when a friend of ours kept putting us in the same situations. I love being on campus together, it’s so fun!

Well, that’s pretty much it! If you have any questions, please feel to ask! I’m a pretty open book!

Welcome to the new school year!!
