Dedman College Senior Olivia Nguyen Turned Her Parents’ Immigrant Challenges Into Passion For Helping First-Generation College Students

SMU News Originally Posted: May 4, 2017 As a child, Olivia Nguyen saw her immigrant Vietnamese parents struggle with adjusting to a country where they didn’t know the language or culture. Because both wanted higher education, they also had to deal with the unfamiliar vernacular and customs of college. Nguyen, a senior in SMU’s Dedman College majoring in biology and world languages (French and Chinese), has taken knowledge of her parents’ challenges to help others facing the same sorts of hardships — specifically, high school students who’ll be first-generation college students. She’s a student leader in SMU’s College Bound program, which prepares high schoolers for the admissions process and gives them tools for campus success. Nguyen’s parents escaped their home country in the 1970s during [...]

From the middle of The Mob: An insider’s look at SMU’s rowdy, courtside student fan section

SMU News Originally Posted: March 13, 2017 DALLAS (SMU) - The sound of the dribble-smack against wood, sneaker-screech on slick panels and screaming voices all reverberate in Moody Coliseum whenever an opponent challenges the Mustangs on their home court. In the heart of this commotion sits The Mob – that wild rabble of rambunctious student fans – who unlike most mobs, boldly bear their membership across their chests. Whenever the men’s basketball team was in the house this season, so was one of the proudest members of The Mob. Tammy Winter is an SMU senior Economics and Public Policy major who never missed a game – or celebrity appearance - in the last two years she's been cheering for her Mustangs with The Mob. Few [...]

Harrison Fagg, the youngest Montana delegate will attend SMU this fall

Great Falls Tribune Originally Posted: July 18, 2016 CLEVELAND — The youngest and oldest members of Montana's delegation to the Republican National Convention bring very different perspectives to the quadrennial event. The 27 Montana delegates casting votes will include World War II veteran Dennis Scranton, 92, and recent high-school graduate Harrison Fagg, 19. They are both supporting Donald Trump. “I decided to run (as a delegate) because I figured this election will probably shape the rest of my life,” Fagg said. “The younger people have a lot more to lose from a poor president, a poor nomination process or even a poor platform for any of the major parties.” Fagg was optimistic his first convention would not only be a learning experience, but one he could use [...]
