Athletic Hall of Fame

The Fontbonne Athletic Hall of Fame was founded in 1999 to recognize those individuals who excelled as an athlete, a coach or an administrator. Here is a listing of Athletic Hall of Fame inductees.

Golden Arcade Circle

In 2000, a new tradition began at Fontbonne to honor our heritage by recognizing those alumni who are celebrating a milestone reunion – the 50th anniversary of their graduation from Fontbonne – by inducting them into a special society called the Golden Arcade Circle.

All alumnae who have already celebrated their 50th reunion were inducted into the Golden Arcade Circle in 2000. Moving forward, the current 50-year reunion class will be inducted into the Golden Arcade Circle at the annual Reunion Mass.

Each member receives a Golden Arcade Circle pin from the university president at Reunion Mass. (NOTE: If you are a current Golden Arcade Circle member and have misplaced your pin, please contact the Alumni Office at 314.889.1447 for a replacement.)

This society will enjoy special privileges throughout the year. Members will be invited to various campus events and will receive communications from the university. Members are encouraged to wear their Golden Arcade Circle pin to all alumni and university events.

Each year, all members of the Golden Arcade Circle are encouraged to attend Reunion Mass and Brunch to welcome the newest 50-year class into the Circle.
