Scholar Spotlight | My Semester in South America

Tower Center Blog Originally Posted: September 13, 2017 Highland Capital Management Tower Scholar Ryan Cross spent the spring of 2017 studying abroad in Argentina and Chile. He spent seven weeks in each country learning about economics, political development, and business in Latin America. During breaks he visited Uruguay and Peru. Cross sat down with the Tower Center to talk about his experience. Describe your life in Argentina. What was a typical day like for you? I began each day enjoying breakfast with my host family and roommate. Coffee, fresh fruit, medialunas (a croissant-like pastry), and dulce de leche (a spread similar to caramel) were staples. Next, I rode a public bus to the office building that housed the program’s classrooms. I participated in a lengthy seminar [...]

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 [...]
