J-Ice and Alternative Breaks

2015-11-04T11:16:50+00:00 Nov 4, 2015|Campus Life, Life Around Dallas, Student Organizations|

One of my favorite organizations at SMU is Alternative Breaks, which send students on community service trips over Fall, Winter and Spring breaks. It has provided me with not only eye-opening and perspective-expanding opportunities in Austin, New Orleans, and Quito, but also with extremely valuable leadership experience, planning, budgeting for, and leading trips. Hopefully it’s [...]

Family Weekend on the Hilltop

2015-11-04T11:13:11+00:00 Nov 4, 2015|Campus Life|

This past weekend was family weekend at SMU. Parents and siblings descended upon Dallas from all corners of the globe, including my own parents who made the 30-minute trek from my hometown of Plano, Texas. There were a number of events to attend starting almost as soon as I finished class that ranged from meet-and-greets [...]

Snowball!

At SMU, anything is possible. If you want to have a snowball fight in August, you can! That’s what I did when One28, a campus ministry here at SMU, hosted their annual One28 snowball fight! Every year One28 brings out hundreds of snowballs onto Dallas Hall Lawn, so that students can enjoy the biggest snowball [...]

Homecoming’s Top Perks

2015-10-29T14:55:43+00:00 Sep 30, 2015|Campus Life, Spirit and Traditions, Student Organizations, Uncategorized|

Homecoming is an exciting time at SMU, and this year was no exception. Southern Methodist University was founded in 1911 and opened for 1915. This Homecoming was the 100th birthday of SMU and the faculty and students filled the entire week with fun activities to celebrate 100 years. Every Homecoming, organizations pair together and participate [...]

A Whole New Era for SMU

2015-10-29T15:01:18+00:00 Sep 16, 2015|Campus Life, Spirit and Traditions|

This year campus feels different. Yes, the improvements being made on campus are hard to miss, and so are the changes to the menu in Arnold, but the real difference is the student body's renewed confidence in our football program. The past few years haven't exactly been the best for our team, but it's already [...]

Robin Roberts Tate Lecture

2015-04-21T11:06:51+00:00 May 4, 2015|Campus Life|

The Tate Lecture Series hosted at SMU brings prestigious speakers to campus that are either industry leaders, political figures, or influential thinkers who have experiences to share that are unmatched throughout the world. Most recently, I was able to attend the Robin Roberts Tate Lecture, which was both an entertaining and humbling experience. Roberts is [...]

Sopranos Anonymous

This coming Friday, I have the opportunity to partake in something completely unconventional and absolutely awesome. I will be performing in an operetta written and directed by one of SMU’s very own Vocal Performance Graduate students. She presented her piece of work to the Opera Director within Meadows, and he has allowed her to cast [...]

Sing Song

2015-03-02T14:48:55+00:00 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 [...]
