What Students Are Saying

3.36 Average Rating
Fontbonne University is a very small campus, which makes it great for receiving one on one time with instructors. Most of the students who go there are very friendly, and there are activities going on almost every weekend.

Fontbonne University is a small campus with a close, tight-knit community. I love the University because I really get to know my professors and classmates, and the small class sizes allows for more discussion. Through academics and extracurriculars, I feel confident in entering the work force after graduation.
