When I was 6 years old, my mom bought my twin sister and me our first Dixie Chicks CD. She used to travel for work a few times a month, and one of the weeks that she was away, my dad helped my sister and I learn to sing the song “Long Time Gone” together. [...]

Making an Impact at SMU

Apr 11, 2015|Ambassadors, Careers|

At the end of last semester I had the incredible opportunity to attend the annual Net Impact Conference in Minneapolis with students and business professionals from all across the country. SMU sent 5 students to the conference to explore fields such as corporate social impact, entrepreneurship, clean energy, international development, impact investing, and many more. [...]

Dogs of SMU

My family has had a dog for my entire life. Whenever we moved (which was 6 times), our dog, Coco the Chocolate Labrador came with. So when I came to SMU, I was very sad to leave my dog. However, I didn’t really dwell on it when I was packing up my bags. I quickly [...]

Dallas coffee shop, Method: Caffeination and Fare, has become a second home to me and immediately came to mind when I was tasked with finding a client for a news writing class’ semester-long project.

D-Town Dining

Apr 1, 2015|Ambassadors, Life Around Dallas|

Being from Dallas is excellent if you, like me, love food. Having the most restaurants per capita in the entire United States ensures that every meal eaten off campus is not just a meal, but an experience. The variety in cuisines and atmospheres in Dallas' plethora of restaurants make it the perfect place to live [...]

Sing Song

Mar 26, 2015|Ambassadors, Campus Life, Spirit and Traditions|

I could not act, sing, or dance even if my life depended on it. Before college the only musical role I ever played was a pig that just oinked in the background when I was in elementary school. That was the extent of my acting career. After being at SMU for a year and a [...]

Prepping For The Working World

Mar 16, 2015|Ambassadors, Careers|

As a Junior Finance major at SMU, I have recently been in the throws of formal summer internship recruitment. Daily, sometimes twice daily, Banks held information sessions and formal recruitment fairs. “Thank-you-notes” became routine, phone interviews were second nature, and the employees at the local dry-cleaners even knew me by name. I don’t mean to [...]

For those of you wanting to study abroad sometime during your four years in college, this one’s for you. Last semester I was fortunate enough to study in Madrid, Spain, through SMU-in-Madrid. Since returning back to SMU and being reunited with all of my friends, the first question I am obviously asked is, “How was [...]

Back To Where It All Began

Mar 11, 2015|Ambassadors|

Some might say that going back to visit one’s high school sounds like the worst idea ever, reminiscent of awkward stages and that one teacher that everyone couldn’t stand, but not me. Having been raised in Dallas, I went to high school not ten minutes from SMU campus at Ursuline Academy of Dallas and had [...]

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Mar 5, 2015|Ambassadors, Campus Life, Residence Life and Student Housing|

As a student in high school, I could never imagine living somewhere other than my house in Alabama with my parents and siblings surrounding me. I had lived in the same house, even the same room, for my entire life. The idea of moving was foreign to me, especially the idea of moving away from [...]
