In October of 1926, Fontbonne College published its first student-run newspaper, The Font.
The first volume highlighted the beginning of the school year and all that goes along with it, while specifically featuring the entrance to Ryan Hall.
ASPIRATION. SKILL. STABILITY.
These are the terms that were used to describe the entrance to Ryan Hall in 1926. “It is veritably a ‘door to opportunity.’”
These three words represented—and continue to represent—Fontbonne students to this day. Fontbonne students aspire to soar higher and lift others up with them. Fontbonne students aim to learn invaluable skills to excel in life beyond the classroom. Fontbonne students strive to find and seek to provide stability for themselves and those around them. Fontbonne students are “wholesome, true, and energetic in promoting every high and good cause.”
Fontbonne students soar higher.
