senior year

All of my work as an art major these past 4 years at Fontbonne have culminated in this final event: the senior thesis art show. Time and time again, I was reminded to start early. If you’re an art major (or will be one soon) I highly recommend setting aside time for your own work. This is incredibly difficult considering you most likely have a job and other classwork. It’s very hard to choose between settling in for another night of Netflix or working on your art.

Even though I thought I had given myself adequate time to prepare, it still wasn’t enough. In the long-run, there are just some things that you can’t plan for. Once senior year hit, it was nearly impossible to balance all the things going on in my life and still have time to commit to making works of art that represented me. Now, that being said, many of my classmates were able to pull off his feat with grace. They preserved and exhibited the most beautiful pieces.

I really hope that everyone had a chance to get out and see the show! This is a reminder that there is another gallery opening this Friday from 6-8pm. It features the brilliant work of the MFA and MA students.

I am so fortunate to have landed in such a great department. And that night is one I won’t forget! S/o to my beautiful friends who came to support me.

If you’re considering going into art, I want to encourage you so hard. You gotta go for it. And Fontbonne is the best place to do it.

Thanks to all my amazing professors and mentors–your guidance has been invaluable to me.



End of semester

by Patricia on April 20, 2017

in Career Paths

I am prepping for the end of the semester by making sure that I have a plan after graduation. I have been doing this all semester. I was offered an internship at Dillards, so I will be doing that this summer. Last week I had an interview with WashU because I applied for their MBA program. I hope to enroll there this fall depending if I get accepted. I will find out on May 5. If I do not get accepted, I will try again next year. In the meantime, hopefully I will have a job at Dillards.

I will only have one final exam this semester, and I am studying for that class now so I don’t wait until the last minute. I am also helping a friend get a job this summer. She has had a difficult year as well as some health setbacks. Getting a summer job is good for her mental health and overall well being. I explained the importance of finding a job before the semester ends. Yesterday I helped her write a resume so that she can apply to a bunch of different places. I referred to her Dillard’s. I am hoping that they accept her even though she doesn’t have any work experience. It is important to start working before college so that it is easier to get other jobs. Anyway, I have plans after graduation, and I hope that she does when she graduates in a few years!


Hello everyone,

I have been truly enjoying my senior season of golf as a Division III athlete at Fontbonne.  The university just recently celebrated Division III athlete week on campus with a few on campus events April 3rd through the 6th.  I am a proud DIII athlete and I am thankful for the opportunity to represent my university when out on the course playing.  Anytime I am out at practice or playing an away tournament and wearing my Fontbonne uniform I am representing my university as a whole.  Without a doubt I have made improvements over the last few years since being on the golf team and I am glad I took the opportunity to play my sport for my university.

My team has three tournaments this spring as one of them was last weekend and we still have two of them coming up before the end of the semester.  I have really enjoyed practice lately as it has been nice enough to get out to the course consistently and either hit on the range or play a round of nine holes.  There is definitely a lot of aspects to work on in the game of golf in order to have a descent score when out on the course.  I have definitely made improvements in my game as the first round of eighteen holes that I played this spring I shot a 92 and I hadn’t played a full round since the fall.  I am only hoping that I will continue to improve my game in the next couple of weeks in both practice and especially at our tournaments we have.  I am planning to make the most of these last two weeks of golf season as my time playing competitively for my university is coming to a close.  If there is one thing I am thankful for this spring season it is for my fun loving team who is always there to make me laugh.

Thanks for reading this weeks post and stay tuned for the next blog coming your way.

Go Griffins and Go Blues!!


There are lots of things I am really excited about that are going to happen in the next three months of my life.  To start with, I am interested to see what the evening is like at my high school’s annual Buona Festa auction. For the second year in a row it will be held on my high school’s campus and it is a big fundraiser event. Another thing I am excited about that many Americans have been anxiously awaiting is the premiere of the Beauty and the Beast Live action film. I am so interested to see how magical the remake of this movie will be once it finally comes out in theaters in mid March.

Something I am most enthusiastic about is the upcoming spring golf season that starts the first full week of March. My team practices at the Highlands in Forest Park and mostly we practice individually based on our own schedules. Our first spring tournament will be a few weeks after our first practice, during the weekend of April 7th up in Monmouth, Illinois. I am so anxious about my final golf season as a college athlete because I want to do my very best and leave all of what I have out on the golf course. I can’t believe there are only a few more van rides and a few more overnights in hotels with my amazing golf team. I have made so many great memories over the last three and a half years and I can’t wait to make more memories throughout my final spring season.

One other major thing I am really looking forward to this spring is graduation on May 8th. I am excited to walk onto that arena floor alongside all of my classmates and fellow athletes.  Throughout this semester I am motivated to do my very best in my classes and make the most of my final weeks in college surrounded by my friends. For me it is hard to imagine not having some of my friends who are originally from other cities to not be close by anymore.  But personally I am anxious about what particular job I will have after graduation as I know there are lots of opportunities for me based on my major.

Until next week, I hope you enjoyed reading this weeks post and I am definitely hopeful for what lies ahead in the coming months.

Raising the Bar

by Alumni Posts July 6, 2015

Hey Fontbonne! This week has been such a bummer with all the rain and nasty weather we’ve been getting. Due to the weather and having a full work week, I’ve been finding things to keep me entertained indoors. One of those things has been making my own snack bars. Snack/protein bars are my go-to while […]
