The New Learning Curve
Flipped classrooms and massive open online courses
(MOOCs) are among the ways St. Bonaventure is
embracing new strategies for teaching and learning.
All in the Family
Adhering to the principles of two men who died
too soon, Kevin and Sean McNamee have fostered
a spirit of brotherhood in the pool and built the
most successful athletic program in school history.
The Power of a Bonnie
Many schools boast a strong alumni network, yet
none can boast a network of Bonnies! Bonnies are
family -- strongest when we work together, and
that's why "The Power of a Bonnie" is this year's
Bonaventure Fund theme.
