By John Angle jangle@smu.edu Hey folks! So you may be wondering, “what do people do at SMU?” Well one big way that a lot of people spend their time is to get involved in one of SMU’s 180+ clubs and organizations. There is literally something for everyone, ranging from multicultural organizations to campus programming to [...]

The First Step

By Courtney Steele csteele@smu.edu Walking up the stairs to the Hughes-Trigg Student Center that summer, a huge "Welcome New Mustangs" banner hung above the entrance, I was terrified. The time had finally arrived, AARO (academic advising registration and orientation) was here and it was time to embark on a journey I knew very little about, [...]

By Lauren Lyngstad llyngstad@smu.edu Though it is February 2, and Punxsutawney Phil may have “seen” his shadow, it sure doesn’t seem like winter time in Dallas. The past week the highs have been around the 60s and 70s, making it easy to forget that it is the middle of winter! I have loved being able [...]

By Greg Nelson rgnelson@smu.edu It was great to be home in Ohio for winter break with my family. It had been about five months since I had been home. While I was home, my brother who is a senior in high school started hearing back from some of the schools he had applied to early. [...]

Going Greek

By Annie Bures abures@smu.edu We have all seen the stereotypical depictions of Greek life on TV and in movies but the media doesn’t always show what Greek life is really like on a college campus.
