winter break

Next week is Finals week. My Junior year so far has been filled with many highpoints and some low points. But overall, I would have to say that it was pretty successful! Academically, I am doing well; and organizationally I am excited to see what 2nd semester brings! We will be traveling to Chicago again for the 2017 Enactus Regional Conference and presenting our efforts with the Criminal Justice Ministry (CJM). Hopefully, we will advance to Kansas City for the 2017 National Conference! Even though I am practically half way done with my Junior year, I still cannot believe that I am HALF WAY done with JUNIOR year! It is crazy! Second semester will fly by!
As for what my plans are for Winter Break: Regain lost hours of sleep, visit family, & work on a project that is currently in development with a Fortune 500 company. I cannot disclose anything beyond that just yet.  Until next year guys, stay classy!



The Final Countdown

We are almost done with week 12 of classes. Is it just me or was August 15th just last week? It’s hard to believe that we are about a month away from Winter break. Once Thanksgiving Break comes around, we will automatically shift into Finals Mode and the semester is practically over. For me, that means my 5th semester is almost in the books. I am half way through my Junior year. As I write this, it seems unreal! Main point is: we are in the final stretch. Don’t shut down your brains just yet. You’ve made it this far, what’s one more month? Until next time guys, stay classy!


1. Keep active! Walking or doing yoga or going to the gym is a great way to alleviate stress as the burden of finals and research papers comes nearer in the next few weeks. Exercise means endorphins and endorphins make you happy!!!

2. Sleep. Getting at least 8 hours of sleep will prevent you from being anxious, overwhelmed, and tired as the next few weeks go on. It will also leave you well rested and your body will love you in more ways than one.

3. Make a schedule. Start studying for finals and do papers ahead of time — don’t leave them to last minute. Even writing a few paragraphs a day for your papers will leave you ahead and less overwhelmed as the due dates draw nearer.

Doing all three of these things will help keep you motivated as winter break comes closer and this semester finally comes to an end! That way you’ll do well on your finals and be able to finally relax as December 10th arrives!!

Good luck everyone!!

Bye Fall 2015!

As the semester of Fall 2015 slowly comes to an end, I can’t help but to recollect on this long and tedious semester. The past few semesters have been tumultuous, so I generally expected Fall 2015 to be the same. I took it upon myself this semester to focus on myself and my grades. To do this, I had to quit my job and put my all into school. Although it’s been difficult, I wouldn’t have it any other way. My grades have soared and I’m happier than ever.

I’ve learned that it’s important to take time for yourself and not let anyone else get in your way. Some people will never understand the work that goes into college and never will. I’ve had this problem with several people in my past who wanted me prioritize them and a social life over the hard work it takes to get good grades in my major. I’ve also had people question why I’m not working, because money is important. What they don’t understand is that I’m securing a good paying job for my future, but it will take me a while to get there. So for the time being, instead of focusing on some minimum wage paying job that’s subpar and I won’t enjoy, why not focus my time on something that will benefit me and pay well in the long run. This closing semester of my senior year here at Fontbonne has been a good one. I’ve made tons of good new friends and worked my butt off to get here now. And graduation is just around the corner!!

I guess what I’m trying to say here is that you should absolutely take the time for yourself rather than anyone else. It’s been good, Fall 2015! Bring on the finals and winter break!!


Winter Break Plans

by Fontbonne University December 2, 2014

What are your plans over winter break? Anything fun? My plans are quite simple. I’m staying home and spending some time with family and friends. I haven’t seen many of friends since summer because we are all at different schools, so the long break gives us time to catch up and hang out with one […]

It’s hard to believe that the holiday season came and went so quickly. It’s even harder to imagine that I’m finally back in school working through my final semester of my undergraduate education. Before we jump right in to the semester, though, I’d like to share some of my favorite photographical memories from this past […]

Last Blog of 2011

by Alumni Posts December 7, 2011

I can’t believe I’m writing this, but this will very likely be the last time I blog in the year 2011. It really does seem like I started school just a few weeks ago, and now we’re already halfway through the school year! As I wrote in my most recent blog, this semester has been […]
