Griffin Roar: The Roaring 20s

Don't miss this exciting collaboration between Griffin Roar and University Archives! 

The Roaring 20s

The students behind the Griffin Roar have launched an ongoing series that explores Fontbonne's rich student-publication history. From the Roar:

The Griffin Roar is pleased to announce the launch of a new feature for our publication: The Roaring 20s, where we will regularly feature examples of past Fontbonne student publications. In doing so we pay respect to the past and tie it into Fontbonne’s future.

Now is a great time get caught up with The Roaring 20s and get on the list for future installments. You can get started here:

@ the Library


Reem Alharbi Installation

We've been evaluating our print holdings for more than a year now, and the effort is really paying off. The project has enabled us to streamline the collection and remove several sections of old shelving. Next time you're in the library, head upstairs and check out a new art installation by student Reem Alharbi. You'll also find an out-of-the-way study space tucked away in the stacks.

Both are located on the west side of the building behind the study space
