learning experiences


Learn More, Be More, the motto of Fontbonne University, is an outstanding way to describe the community and atmosphere of Fontbonne.
As per the Fontbonne Website, “At Fontbonne, it means small classes where professors engage, challenge — and support — you. It means a focus on internships and other real-world opportunities that provide invaluable experience. And it means a student body that thinks of a college education as a view to the world.” This shows the idea that learning is key to a Fontbonne education, but this is not limited to the classroom.

Learning at Fontbonne is seen on the field, in the café and at all the jobs and places like the library and computer labs. Learn More leads to Being More because students, faculty, and staff put in time and effort to be more than simply students, faculty, and staff. For me, I am a student, work-study student, student blogger, Campus Ministry Leader, and many more things. Professors act as teachers, role models, mentors, and associates in their get list of roles. At Fontbonne, learning leads to being.

What I mean by this is that the learning in the classroom leads all people at Fontbonne to go out of their way to be a better friend, teacher, family member, worker, boss, etc. Students get to have hands on experience. With the SLP clinic, students can help people in the Fontbonne community while completing their degrees.


The main page of the Fontbonne website says, “Learn more. Be more.® isn’t just a slogan. It’s who we are. It’s what makes us different. Our values-based campus community promotes and embraces respect, compassion and service. We’re committed to providing a personalized educational experience that encourages you to explore your role in the world and how you can make it a better place. We believe that you can learn more and be more — in college, in a career and in life.”
Learn more. Be more.


Studies in Disabilities and Exceptionalities was by far the most life-changing course I have taken so far, not just at Fontbonne but at any college for any degree or certification! Through this course we were constantly given examples of the inequalities that happen each day for those who are disabled. This course caused each of us to analyze in our everyday lives these things that we take for granted that can be completely biased against those with disabilities.

Through learning the history of society’s views on those with disabilities up until today and how society has changed or hasn’t changed. We even took a trip to the Paraquad building by the Science Center to meet with a Bronze Medal Special Olympian and also spend the whole night in a wheelchair and live the life of someone with that need. We came into small obstructions or large ones that then changed our minds forever. Every time I see a curb without a curb cut it makes me upset, every time I have a student with a disability I try to move my classroom to create as even an atmosphere for that student as much as my students without disabilities.

I am so fortunate that I had this class because during my student teaching experience I do have students with disabilities as well as exceptionalities, and I have been able to bring that knowledge not only to my classroom but share it with my fellow teachers. I highly suggest this class. There is no major or career choice where you will not encounter a person with a disability, and this can not only help you become unbiased, even if you don’t mean to be, but also to just become a kind, knowledgeable and overall caring citizen.
