I love Fontbonne University! It's a small campus which makes getting around to classes super easy. It also means that everyone knows everyone else, and everyone on campus, staff, faculty, and students are friendly! The buildings are nice and classrooms are comfortable. Fontbonne recently added a new parking lot which helped a lot. Fontbonne also offers a lot of activities and fun events. The only thing I would change is the cost of parking passes. FBU is a private University so tuition is crazy expensive and so are parking passes. I feel like since we already pay a ton in tuition, parking passes should be cheaper, if not free! But overall I'm proud to be a Griffin!
Review Fontbonne University
Fontbonne university is a great school! For many students including me it feels like home and I couldn't imagine myself at any other college! The campus is the perfect size for anyone who enjoys a close nit community feel. I make new friends every year and enjoy all the opportunities that I have to be involved on campus!
Nothing is a problem regarding Fontbonne, but rather my parents income being too high. That's not ok though in my book considering I am paying for my tuition mostly by myself. So money is a hassle to obtain with no full time job. Only a part time job once a week as a special needs shadow. That is a wonderful very rewarding job- but I am the college student and it makes no sense for me to be only allowed a loan and no scholarships. Its is honestly hard for me because I need a scholarship badly!
