A Perfect Saturday

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 [...]

The Method to my Madness

2015-03-02T14:50:22+00:00 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

2015-03-02T14:49:42+00:00 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 [...]

Life Around Dallas: D-town Boogie

2015-01-07T06:16:42+00:00 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!

2014-11-13T18:48:02+00:00 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 [...]

The Final Four in Dallas

2014-04-28T13:30:41+00:00 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!

2014-04-07T13:43:09+00:00 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

2014-03-31T13:31:04+00:00 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

2014-03-31T13:29:23+00:00 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 [...]

The Hilltop Gives Back

2014-03-17T14:33:09+00:00 Mar 10, 2014|Life Around Dallas|

By Kevin Hess I recently had a chance to go explore Dallas and give a little back to the city that every SMU student grows to love so much. SMU helped organize a volunteer project with a local organization called "Give Graffiti the Brush." This was a really unique volunteer opportunity in which a group [...]
