Am learning a lot
I am a Special Education major at Fontbonne, and I absolutely love the program! The class sizes are perfect, and I have so much experience. The professors really care about your future as a teacher.
Am enjoying being here
Fontbonne is a small school but I absolutely love it. I am really involved on campus, which is something I HIGHLY suggest for students there. I have gotten to know so many great people and wouldn't change my experience for anything!
Bang for the buck
Fontbonne is expensive, but it's completely worth the money. The teachers know you by name and are they're all there to help. I am not just a number which makes it so worth it to me!
Tips for prospective students
GET INVOLVED! Fontbonne exceeded my expectations in a university and I believe it is because I am so active on campus. I know tons of people and feel like I get A LOT accomplished inside and outside the classroom. Don't be afraid to just be yourself and find your niche.
Great for these types of students
If you want to feel accomplished and get things done in the classroom, on campus and in the community then Fontbonne is for you. It's a small school with a big heart. If you want to recognize faces and have professors and faculty know you by name, this is the place for you!

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.
Tips for prospective students
I highly recommend making strong connections with your teachers. I also think it is very important to stay on top of academic paperwork such as scholarships, bills, and other student information to make sure the staff is free of errors. Last, I recommend students put 100% into their school work because after all, they are the ones paying for it.
Academic Rigor
Most of my classes are pretty difficult. I like to know that I am learning new things though. Most of the teachers are very helpful and willing to assist you in whatever ways they can.
Dorm Life
I don't live in the dorms, but I have been up there once. The ones in Medaille hall are not very nice and are very tiny. You do, however, have a bathroom to share with one roommate which is better than community bathrooms. The ones in St. Joseph hall seem much nicer!
Food and Dining
The food at Fontbonne is great! They offer healthy foods with a huge variety in the dining room and fast food in the DSAC of Griffin Grill. Definitely tastes homemade :)
What to do for fun
Fontbonne has activities almost every Friday. They bring in speakers, go bowling, to the movies, have dances, and have sports tournaments. Almost all of these things are free or given a great discount for students.
Bang for the buck
Like all colleges, Fontbonne is a little costly. However, they offer pretty great scholarships which makes it easier to pay for.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Fontbonne is big on activities for students of different cultures. Each year we have a fun festival for students from all over the world. They each have their own booth and share information and items from their home country along with free food from those places.
Clubs and Activities
There are clubs for any area you can imagine. Science, math, Teaching, Speech Path, everything!
Campus Safety
Fontbonne has a few security guards who have their own office in the parking lot. I will occasionally see them walking around. I have never heard of anything stolen or seen any fights. Overall, it is a very safe campus.

In three sentences
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.
Tips for prospective students
Talk to the professors in the department you are interested in and ask the students any question you have. The faculty and staff along with the students are more than willing to help you, and would love to answer any questions you may have.
Academic Rigor
My classes have greatly challenged me to think in new and different ways. I love the courses I am in, and being able to take classes outside my major. The professors are also more than willing to meet with you if a class becomes too challenging.
Dorm Life
While the rooms are a bit dated, the dorms quickly become your home away from home. Through the community and open doors, you are able to build friendships quickly. The Residential Life staff are also great to work with should a problem ever arise!
Food and Dining
There are two dining halls on campus that offer a wide range of food.
What to do for fun
Get involved! Organizations on campus offer plenty of fun events to attend. Also, the Loop is not too far away or you can go downtown.
Clubs and Activities
Being involved on campus is one of the best things I have done. There are so many organizations to join, and something for everyone. Step outside of your comfort zone, and try something new too! It is a great way to meet new friends and also obtain possible leadership positions in the future!
Campus Safety
The Department of Public Safety has amazing officers on staff! They interact with the students, and make us feel safe and comfortable on campus.
