Peace, Soul, Rock & Roll

Oct 7, 2015|Campus Life, Life Around Dallas, Spirit and Traditions|

I absolutely love live music. In fact, I’ve been too close to the speakers at so many concerts that I have hearing loss in my left ear. When I was in high school, I went to at least one concert a month, if not more. I couldn’t get enough of the atmosphere, the fans, the [...]

A Perfect Saturday

Sep 14, 2015|Life Around Dallas, Student Organizations|

A picture of the lake before I began paddle boarding. Is summer truly over in Dallas? Nope. I refuse to admit it. As excited as I am for fall, I hate saying goodbye to the warm days of summer, and I especially hate saying goodbye to endless hours in/on the water. But let’s [...]

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 [...]

A Passion Rediscovered

Apr 13, 2015|Ambassadors, Campus Life, Life Around Dallas, Spirit and Traditions|

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. [...]

The Method to my Madness

Apr 6, 2015|Ambassadors, Careers, Life Around Dallas|

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. The young, energetic owner Louie Corwin and his staff of expert baristas were already familiar faces, and I was excited for [...]

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 [...]

Summer on Campus

Mar 23, 2015|Ambassadors, Campus Life, Life Around Dallas, Spirit and Traditions|

I am so excited that this summer I will be here on campus at SMU working AARO. For those that don’t know, AARO is an acronym for “Academic Advising Registration & Orientation” and I will be an AARO leader for next year’s first year students! I applied for the job way back in November and [...]

A Semester in Spain: Food I Already Crave

Mar 13, 2015|Ambassadors, Life Around Dallas, SMU Abroad|

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 [...]

Life Around Dallas: D-town Boogie

Dec 17, 2014|Life Around Dallas|

By Austin Whittle Dallas is no stranger to the music scene. Headline artists such as Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake, Drake and Lil Wayne have all made recent appearances in the Big D. Although not as well known as the artists I have previously mentioned, Echosmith, The Mowgli’s, and American Authors came to town as well, and [...]

Friends, Fun, and Fried Food!

Oct 27, 2014|Life Around Dallas|

By Taylor Corrigan Every year the great state of Texas looks forward to the State Fair of Texas: fun rides, games, and every kind of fried food you can imagine. Since its first year, back in 1886, the State Fair serves not only as an annual event celebrated with friends and family here in Texas, but [...]

Discovering Dallas: Fair Friendly Friday

Oct 13, 2014|Life Around Dallas|

By Kelsey Buttrell This past week, I put on my favorite pair of red cowboy boots and walked over to the DART station to make my way to the Texas State Fair. This was my second time attending the fair while being at SMU, and it was as entertaining as I remember. The key is [...]

The Final Four in Dallas

Apr 21, 2014|Life Around Dallas|

By Elizabeth Dubret Not too long ago, Dallas was lucky enough to host the Final Four!  It was an exciting time to be in the city, and there were so many amazing things to do as a student.  To kick it all off, SMU hosted the Three Point and Slam Dunk competition in our very [...]

It’s Springtime in Dallas!

Apr 7, 2014|Life Around Dallas|

By Erin Robbins Spring is arguably the most beautiful time of the year to visit SMU and a perfect season in Dallas.  Everything is in bloom, the weather is perfect, and there are tons of things to do outdoors. One of my favorite things to do on a sunny 78-degree day (like today) is head [...]

Fighting for the Innocent at SMU

Mar 31, 2014|Life Around Dallas|

By Liz Crowell Now that I am almost halfway done with my time in college (which I still refuse to accept), I truly didn’t think that my experience at SMU would continue to diversify and expand.  Thankfully, I have been proven wrong with the addition of The Innocence Project of Texas into my daily routine.  [...]

Philanthropic Fun

Mar 28, 2014|Life Around Dallas|

By Melody Davis As spring weather is hopefully about to hit SMU, so are several SMU parents this semester! Even if you get to college from out of state, like myself from Florida, and start to miss the family right about the semester halfway point, not to worry – they always like to come to [...]
