Beating the Heat and Learning About the World

2017-11-29T10:04:25+00:00 Nov 15, 2017|Academics, Life Around Dallas, Lyle School of Engineering|

Coming from California, I’ve been asked countless times by family and friends, “How’s the weather in Texas?” More often than not my response is, “Hot!” And yes, it is hot for the majority of the year, but you adapt quickly so the heat is nothing to fear. Lucky for SMU students, Dallas is home to [...]

In the Midst of Internship Applications

2017-11-29T10:34:23+00:00 Nov 4, 2017|Academics, Careers, Lyle School of Engineering|

My first and second years of college at SMU were full of new experiences and exploration of possible careers—so many opportunities, so much excitement! Now junior year has already rolled around and I find myself starting to narrow in on what I want to do with my life. Mechanical engineering and mathematics—check. Now, I am [...]

Study Spots around Dallas

2017-11-29T13:18:54+00:00 Oct 22, 2017|Academics, Life Around Dallas|

Though Fondren Library is a great spot to study, sometimes you need to find a different atmosphere away from campus to really be productive. Because of Dallas’ hundreds of different popular study spots, I would like to recommend three that provide not only delicious treats, but also a prime studying environment.   Union – This [...]

An English Major among Engineers

2017-11-29T08:27:56+00:00 Sep 18, 2017|Academics, Campus Life, Lyle School of Engineering|

I can remember the first time I heard the job title “Maker.” It was from a friend who referenced a man he knew who would make custom objects for a living. “What!?” I asked, “you can make a living off of just making random things for people?” To say I’m a handy person is an exaggeration [...]

Undergraduate Research at SMU

2016-10-13T14:36:45+00:00 Oct 13, 2016|Academics, Uncategorized|

Whenever people ask me why I chose SMU, my answer is pretty simple. I wanted a school with a strong electrical engineering program, the ability to study abroad for a semester and still graduate on time, and the opportunity to participate in undergraduate research. I’m excited to say that after this fall semester, I will [...]

Rob Lowe at SMU & Other Amazing Speakers

2016-05-27T11:27:22+00:00 Apr 15, 2016|Academics, Campus Life|

The last thing that most students want to do when they get out of class on Tuesday afternoons is get ready to go to another lecture after dinner at 8pm. There is only one exception—one lecture that students (including myself) dress up for, make plans with friends for, and line up to get tickets for [...]

Pancakes and Tulips and Human Rights, Oh My!

My class, jet-lagged but excited after just landing in Amsterdam. Picture perfect windows in picture perfect canal houses lined with picture perfect flower boxes. This is what I was lucky enough to experience over Spring Break thanks to SMU and the University Honors Program (UHP). No Destin or Breckinridge for this gal; two [...]

Fun in Taos

2016-05-27T11:32:55+00:00 Mar 4, 2016|Academics, Taos|

This past winter break, I went to SMU’s campus in Taos, New Mexico and completed a January Term class. A Jan-Term class is basically a condensed class completed within 8 class days before the spring semester starts. You can complete up to 4 credit hours at SMU’s Dallas or Taos campus. I chose to take [...]

Dancing the Days Away

The SMU Dance majors immediately hit the ground running this semester. On the evening following the first day of classes, we jumped into rehearsals for the Fall Hope Show, which we recently performed. The show was comprised of three pieces, the first (and the one that I had the opportunity to perform) was a contemporary [...]

Research at SMU

2015-12-04T11:25:54+00:00 Nov 19, 2015|Academics|

Just chilling with some of the research equipment. Something that’s been a huge part of my year and a half at SMU has been my participation in Faculty led research. It all started the first week of my freshman year. Coming into SMU as a Psychology major, I knew that if I didn’t [...]

My Experience in the Cox School of Business

           I study marketing within the Cox School of Business along with an advertising minor from the Meadows School of the Arts. I’m really enjoying the business curriculum! Now I am starting to focus more on my Marketing degree. I am taking really interesting classes in which I am learning more and more about my [...]
