I chose Fontbonne because of the small campus and because it was close to home. I enjoy being able to walk around campus and see a friendly face that you recognize. I also enjoy having the opportunity to get close with your professors because of the small class sizes. Being a former student at Francis Howell I liked going to a smaller school and having more opportunities to get involved on campus and grow close with my professors.
