Making Memories with George W. Bush

By Kevin Hess

One of the groups that I’m involved in on campus recently had the opportunity to hear a “VIP Guest Speaker” before we all went to go see Sanjay Gupta give a Lecture as part of SMU’s Tate Lecture Series. We all showed up anxious to see who this mystery person would be. We were then surprised as a member of SMU’s Board of Trustees introduced President George W. Bush to our small group of 60-70 students. We were then treated to about 45 minutes of simply question-answer conversation with the former president. After this, we headed to a banquet hall where I shook Dr. Gupta’s hand before dinner and hearing his lecture. It was the night of a lifetime and an incredible opportunity that SMU made possible for me. These kind of nights truly show how much SMU cares about their students and making us better—Pony Up!

    What an awesome opportunity for SMU students to get to experience an intimate Q&A seminar with former Pres George W. Bush, and Dr. Sanje Gupta.
    I feel both these men really care about American Students’ education and offer a great opportunity for their growth, through the, education and experiences, of both these notable Americans.
    Very impressive!
