Rob Lowe at SMU & Other Amazing Speakers

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!

Mar 22, 2016|Academics, SMU Abroad|

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

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

Dec 4, 2015|Academics, Meadows School of the Arts|

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 [...]

A Unique Experience: A Guest Lecture by President Bush

Dec 4, 2015|Academics, Bush Library, Cox Business School|

Meeting President Bush on campus was one of the things I had on my bucket list since my freshman year at SMU. However, I never thought that the way I would meet him was through a surprise guest lecture in one of my business classes.I am currently taking Professor Don Vandewalle's class on Leadership and [...]

Research at SMU

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 [...]

Reflections of a Grad Student

Oct 28, 2015|Academics, General|

Today marks exactly five months and eight days since I walked across the stage in Moody Coliseum to receive my bachelor’s degree from SMU. Not that I’m counting or anything. I always shrugged off all the “it goes by so fast” warnings from people slightly older than me. Man, were they spot on or what? [...]

The Life of an SMU Accounting Major

Oct 28, 2015|Academics, Careers, Cox Business School|

Although finance is the most popular major within Cox, as well as the most popular major on campus, I personally believe majoring in accounting is the way to go. Let me explain. Recruiting season for accounting majors in Texas begins at the start of second semester for all juniors who wish to go through formal [...]

Getting Coffee with a Professor?!?

Oct 21, 2015|Academics, Campus Life, Life Around Dallas|

One of my favorite times at SMU is the fall. The leaves are changing colors, the boulevards, and the pumpkins are out. However, my fall has been spent with the Strategy Brand Management track of Advertising. So far, I have loved getting to know the 15 people that I will be spending the rest of [...]

MSA at SMU

Sep 30, 2015|Academics|

This year I started the Masters of Science in Accounting program at SMU after I graduated in May with a bachelor degree in accounting from the Hilltop. I knew a few things before starting graduate school. I love Dallas and SMU’s presence in the city, so I knew I didn’t want to leave just yet. [...]

August Term in Taos

Sep 23, 2015|Academics, SMU Abroad|

This past August I got to study Business Law and Outdoor Adventures at SMU’s second campus in Taos, New Mexico and it was absolutely one of my favorite SMU experiences so far! Our campus is about 20 minutes outside the town of Taos and is entirely SMU students and faculty living and learning on campus. [...]

Approaching the Semester’s End

Apr 30, 2015|Academics, Campus Life, Life Around Dallas|

As the spring semester winds to an end, one obstacle lies in the way of students returning home, starting internships, and even graduating: final exam week. During this week, students will spend time visiting with their professors and studying in the various libraries on campus in order to prepare for the semester’s end. After the [...]

SMU in Brussels

Apr 24, 2015|Academics, SMU Abroad|

When I started my first semester at SMU, there were two things that topped my list of “Things I Must Accomplish In College.” Yes, I wanted to discover my career path and have the best four years of my life; but without exception, I was determined to study abroad and learn another language. Thanks to [...]

Throwback Thursday: G.W. Bush Visits Class

Jan 15, 2015|Academics|

By Austin Brown Last semester SMU was lucky enough to have President George Bush on campus to speak about his new book 41: A Portrait Of My Father. It always strikes me how lucky we are as a student body to consistently have opportunities to attend speeches by the former president. Reflecting on this reminded me [...]
