I would definitely choose my school again because toy not just a number tittle an individual with a voice. And is so family oriented so you don't feel home sick.

I've loved attending Fontbonne for my graduate degree. It's affordable and because it's a smaller school, I feel that professors and staff are really focused on the students.

This was the first time back in school after being out for thirty years. The whole staff a Fontbonne are professional, friendly and willing to help. I can pick up the phone or walk into the wrong office and I am greeted and directed to the correct place or they will make a call and get the information that I need.
