    Get to know



    At Fontbonne University, I get

    to be that student who knows

    all of his professors -- and all

    of my professors know me. I

    have the opportunity to make

    a difference in my school and

    make a mark that I will be

    remembered by.

    around and if they

    arent, its extremely

    easy to get in touch

    For curious, driven students, our

    University Major offers the chance to design, customize and develop

    an individualized degree. With

    the help of her faculty advisors, Krystal Taylor 10 (below) combined

    pre-law, business and communication.

    She is vice president for The Greitens

    Group, an organization created by

    Eric Greitens, Navy Seal, Rhodes

    Scholar, humanitarian, and founder

    of The Mission Continues, a nonprofit

    assisting veterans.

  • Fontbonne is a smaller school,

    which makes it easier to have a

    voice in the classroom if youre

    confused or need further

    guidance . The professors truly

    care about the students and

    seeing them succeed. They

    take advantage of the small

    classrooms to give students

    projects and opportunities

    they might not have in a big

    lecture hall-style school.

    in Action

  • Classes and tests are important, of course. But we believe theres more to your college experience.

    Who you are is just as important

    as what you want to be.

  • Explore your role in

    the world and how

    you can make it a

    better place.

  • Inside and outside the classroom,

    you can grow as an individual, a

    teammate, a leader, a friend and a

    global citizen. At Fontbonne, we remain grounded in the mission

    and strong spirit of our founders,

    the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet.

    Their values inspire and drive us.

    St. Louis, Mo.

    To me, Learn more. Be more.

    means being the best version of

    yourself that you can be . An

    education is a powerful thing

    that will expand your horizons

    if you allow it, and Ive found

    that keeping an open mind and

    staying curious may take you

    to places you never thought

    you would go.

    How can YOU make

    a difference?

  • This is where our entire campus community focuses

    on a single topic during the fall semester. It includes speakers,

    panel discussions, suggested readings, specialized courses, theater

    productions, films and more. Past themes include Sustainability,

    Happiness, The Disability Experience, Foodology, Immigrant

    Experiences, Civil Rights: Then and Now, and The Future.


    Our students understand that

    social changes are occurring

    across the country and here in

    St. Louis. Thats why we have

    Peace & Justice conversations regularly. Its a chance for the

    campus community to gain a

    better understanding of the

    important issues at stake and the

    role we all can play.


  • The Bosnia Memory Project at Fontbonne University began as an academic course and evolved into a

    nationally recognized effort to record

    the stories and memories of the survivors

    of the Bosnian War and Genocide, 40,000

    of whom have settled in St. Louis.

    Students have helped record

    interviews, collect archival

    materials and amplify the voices

    of a community.


  • They want us to be more.

    They dont want us just to

    come here and learn. They

    want us to get involved in the

    community. They want us to

    get involved around campus.

    And they really want us to

    be well-rounded individuals

    when we graduate.
