Fontbonne University Reviews

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!

Although the cost is very expensive each and every year. The staff at Fontbonne University are very accessible from the instructors to the cafeteria workers are helpful and will put you in the right direction. When I first started at the university, I choose it for the hours and how well they were willing to work around my work schedule. So many of the changes have come with a price, not only the tuition but also the changing of the hours for the evening students. The evening class were from 6pm to 9pm and now they are from 5pm to 9pm or 5:30pm to 10:00pm. This time change has hurt a lot of evening students because most have jobs that are 9am to 5pm and getting through traffic is very stressful. The learning environment and the staff are the main reasons I choose to start and finish my degree at Fontbonne University.
I just enrolled this past semester as a transfer student! Fontbonne has a great online program for my studies so I am able to work full time and also attend school. The staff has been very helpful for everything . The only issue is that it is very expensive for me and I have loads of student loans from only one semester.
