I love Fontbonne University. There are a lot of pros of a small campus. I love that the class sizes are small and that my professors are always available to help. Some even provide weekend tutoring for those of us who need extra practice. Small campuses feel safer and is a blessing in the winter or on rainy days because you are not stuck walking outside for too long. There are of course a few cons to a small campus and that is that there are not a lot of food options on campus and not a lot of clubs and activities that you can participate in, but Fontbonne University has a very small campus so it makes sense that there are not too many options. Although there are not too many food options on campus, there are a lot of fast food restaurants a few minute drive away and a Walgreens just down the street.
Fontbonne is an inclusive university. We have students from all around the world and there are plenty of opportunities to learn about every one. Freshman orientation is the biggest opportunity to do so. Our teachers are the most readily available teachers I have ever meet. They work to make sure we do well and understand the subject matter they teach. There are many different clubs around school so that every kind of person can find the people that enjoy the same things they do. The facilities Fontbonne have are not the nicest but the people you meet and the activities you do outside of school easily makeup for that fact. Fontbonne is a loving community that supports all of its students and is overall a great school to attend.
It's a small campus that is just perfect for me. It's not that far away from home and I feel that I will really enjoy going there next year. The campus is less than 30 minutes from downtown St.Louis and is even closer to things such as the mall and places to go have fun with friends. One thing that was shocking is that the campus is right next to Washington University. The admissions counselor is extremely helpful and is always willing to answer calls. If he misses them he always calls back to make sure I get my questions answered.
The art department is like a glorified community college. The facilities are minimal at best and as a grad student you just repeat the same undergrad classes over and over. If you want to make figure drawings than this is the school for you. Why so many past middle aged women? Your over 55 what will you do with an MFA?
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Fontbonne University is 89%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
First of all, have a great time! Enjoy every minute of the college life because, no matter how often you tell yourself that you're going to be in school forever, your really not going to be and, believe it or not, you'll miss it when its gone.
Secondly, take a break every once in while. Whenever you need to, just stop and take a breath. Trying to do too much at one time is a waste of everyone's energy. You'll end up doing whatever it is you're trying to do badly and you will have forgotten to make memories and... enjoy yourself. It can't hurt anything to just breathe for a second.
Finally, I would tell myself to be prepared for things not to always go my way. Its a nice thought to set goals and dreams of doing things your own way but your list of "to do's" doesn't always match up with everyone else's. So stay focused on your goals but be flexible and don't freak out if something doesn't go exactly how you planned. That's how life is. =)
The school has a very prestigious Speech and Language Pathology major and a good reputation with the graduate school in that field. Students who make it through the program and into the graduate program have their choice of a lot of different job oppurtunities after graduation. It has it's own clinic for Speech and Language disorders where students get hands-on oppurtunities to work with actual people instead of just reading case studies. If you are interested in the program, it is the best place to be.
Fontbonne is my family.
Students looking to be close to home and not be lost in a classroom. Work hard and make sure you seek a very supportive advisor. If you are unhappy with your advisor find another one. Some one there is really there to help youi learn.
Someone looking for the big school experience. There are no "big games" such as football, no fraternities or sororities.
The best thing about my school is that the student body is proactive and innovative. Everyone here thinks and solves problems at higher levels, everyone here is very driven and goal-oriented. Students are also very involved in organizations on and off campus, the majority of which are service oriented.
I wish that I had known more about what activities are avalible at the school. Emails are sent out that tell students about what is going on at the school , but some emails you don't get till the day of the event ,which can make it hard to get to the event. Other than that though there is nothing really that I wish I would have known. Fontbonne has never hidden anything from me and everything I was told about the school has been true.
The availability of parking spaces on campus. Sometimes causes students to be late to classes so they have to arrive early to get a spot or to catch the shuttle from off-campus parking.
To help you begin - or advance- the career of your dreams.
The financial aid process was bit daunting. I have attended University before and the process was more streamlined than at this University. It was necessary to stay in frequent contact in order to get things completed and be kept in the loop on my status. Also a bit frustrating that if you didn't know the right questions to ask you really didn't get much guidance. Not helpful if the process is new or has changed dramatically since you last used it.
I tell my friends about the sports quite often. Fontbonne has a very distinguished sporting history and most of the teams are very good. But of course, I also talk a lot about my classes and professors. Most of them are great, which makes for very stimulating discussion during class.
The classmates are friendly and very kind to you. They are the most social people you will ever meet.
