My online experience with Fontbonne University was great! I was attending school on campus until the corona pandemic, but once our school was forced to go online they continued to do great work. All of my teachers were very understanding, accessible, and caring. I loved that my teachers were accessible because that transition was very difficult for me.

My freshman year at Fontbonne University was amazing. I met great friends, genuine teachers, and I learned a lot of interesting things. I was also very appreciative to how small the school was. I was able to get one on one time with my teachers during class and that was something I felt extremely helpful. Overall my experience with Fontbonne University was great!
I started my college career with Fontbonne University and I can actually say it is average. The school is meant for kids with money, their tuition is very expensive for the average American family. Communication with counsellors can be good, depending on the person you are paired with or it can be non existing. I would not recommend Fontbonne University to the family that does not have an extra $10,000 per semester to apply to their child's tuition. If you have money, this is the university for you.
