SMU Bucket List

By Janielle Kastner

When I was a first-year, wide-eyed and in love with SMU, I began to make a list of all the things I was going to try, events I would attend, clubs I would join, and places to explore…

That was 6 semesters ago, and I still have so much more to accomplish!

These are some of the events I have left – I hope you can come to SMU and pick up wherever I leave off!

Things to Accomplish Before Leaving SMU:
