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!

There are two different dining locations: Ryan Hall and Dunham Student Activity Center (DSAC). Ryan Hall serves a buffet with pasta, chicken, steamed vegetables, vegetables, desserts, soups, and many others. DSAC serves more fried meals, such as burgers, fries, pizza, quesadillas, wraps, small salads, etc. The food are pretty great!

My overall experience was great. More than anything it made me become more in touch with my faith, made me a man and I felt prepared for not only college but life. Our school is unique in the countless service opportunities we have here as well as the amount of alumni we have still involved. We currently have 19 full-time alumni in the building and when including part-time coaches we have over 40. Our students go to some of the best schools all across the country. I feel more than anything our school has a great balance as far as academic, athletics, clubs and activities and service opportunities. We truly are strong across the board. Our slogan is "come for 4 years and stay a lifetime." That best describes St. Rita High School.
