Asosiación de Empresarios Mexicanos

2017-11-30T09:29:09+00:00 Nov 30, 2017|Campus Life, Student Organizations|

The past couple of years have been exciting for Latino students at SMU. This is because SMU recently inaugurated its chapter of AEM (Asosiación de Empresarios Mexicanos), an organization that aims to connect Latino students interested in business with each other, as well as with entrepreneurs from across the world. Even though this is a [...]

Culture on Campus

2017-11-29T08:29:50+00:00 Oct 15, 2017|Campus Life, Meadows School of the Arts, Student Organizations|

SMU has some of the most entertaining cultural and artistic experiences on a college campus through our Meadows School of the Arts. Over the course of the semester, you could easily catch performances in dance, vocal performance, studio art and orchestra. A while ago, I had the opportunity to see the Cézanne String Quartet’s final [...]

Rising in Ranks from Varsity to Club Sports

2017-11-29T08:27:36+00:00 Sep 28, 2017|Athletics, Campus Life, Student Organizations|

Four year varsity football. Four year varsity track and field. First Team All-State athlete. And after all that in high school, NOT a collegiate varsity athlete. Why? Near the end of high school, I was seriously considering the possibility of playing varsity football at my future college. Every time I weighed the pros and cons, [...]

Serving the Dallas Community

2016-10-13T15:39:16+00:00 Oct 13, 2016|Life Around Dallas, Student Organizations|

SMU has over 180 different student organizations to get involved in, which became perfectly clear when I attended SMU’s student involvement fair, “Night at the Club” my freshman year. During that fateful night, I signed my name on probably 20 different organizations that I was interested in. However, although I would like to, I don’t [...]

My Experience in the Best A Cappella Group Ever

2016-09-23T15:55:00+00:00 Sep 23, 2016|Student Organizations|

Over the last four years, I’ve had the pleasure to be a part of the most amazing organization on campus: the SMU Belle Tones. Belle Tones is a female a cappella group that has given me lifelong friends and amazing experiences. In the past, we’ve been able to sing for former President George W. Bush [...]

Corral Guides preparing for Corral Kickoff Festivities College is a magical time. Pretty much anyone you meet who has been will say that for a number of different reasons: the classes, the personal development, the freedom, etc. For me, what’s made SMU most magical is the people. When I put down my deposit [...]

If you’re someone that has been super involved in sports in high school, it may be difficult to decide whether or not to pursue them on the Hilltop. As someone who was in a similar spot as you just three years ago, I can give you an inside scoop on all the incredible options available [...]

Not Such an Anomaly

2015-12-05T16:07:41+00:00 Dec 5, 2015|Student Organizations|

The above picture describes one of the most significant experiences I have been a part of here at SMU.  It amazes me how these group of students- who sat with me in chamber every Tuesday from 3:30pm-6:00pm- could teach me so much. As a member of the SMU 102nd student senate, I have learned what [...]

Objection: SMU Mock Trial is WAYY Too Cool!

2015-11-18T11:28:57+00:00 Nov 12, 2015|Student Organizations|

I compete on the SMU Mock Trial team, a group that travels all over the nation simulating law proceedings and gaining both legal and theatrical experience. As a drama and speech enthusiast in high school, I pounced on the chance to join this nationally ranked team the second that I stepped foot on SMU’s campus [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
