What IS a Dedicated Semester?
In the fall semester of each year, Fontbonne sponsors a “Dedicated Semester.” With cooperation from schools, divisions, departments, and programs across the university, our campus community explores a single theme. Academic departments contribute 10 to 12 courses that are the core curriculum of the “Dedicated Semester,” which is also supported by a variety of co-curricular activities and events.
Upcoming Tasting: Thursday in Ryan Hall
This pigmy of the citrus family looks like a tiny oval or round orange. It’s cultivated in China, Japan and the United States. The edible golden orange rind is sweet, while the rather dry flesh is very tart. The entire fruit—skin and flesh—is eaten, and very ripe fruit can be sliced and served raw in salads or as a garnish. The kumquat is more likely to be found cooked, however, either candied or pickled whole or in preserves or marmalades. Fresh kumquats are available from November to June.
