#SMUBound

April 15th, 2016|Campus Life, Uncategorized|

Summer is rapidly approaching, and I can’t help but reflect upon when I finally made my decision to come to SMU. My father was practically jumping for joy knowing that one of his children decided to attend his alma mater. I, on the other hand was already getting those pre-freshmen nerves beyond belief. My everyday [...]

SMU-in-Copenhagen

March 31st, 2016|Uncategorized|

Hello from Denmark! I’m officially halfway through my semester abroad in Copenhagen and I can’t believe how quickly my days here are flying by. These past two months have been an absolute blur of meeting new friends (from Danes to Americans to Jamaicans!), travelling all over Europe with my sustainability classes, and even climbing a [...]

Spreading Smiles into the Special Needs Community

March 31st, 2016|Uncategorized|

Every smile, every hug, and every “I love you” reminds me that one individual can have a profound impact on the lives of others. Since my middle school years, I have found great joy in giving back to the special needs community, and some of my best friendships have been built within it. In high [...]

Everything All in One City

March 31st, 2016|Uncategorized|

Being in Dallas gives you the opportunity to explore a lot of pretty amazing things. With the help of Uber, DART, and of course your friends, you can take in everything that Dallas has to offer and you don't even need a car on campus to enjoy it all! This February I had the chance [...]

Change Should Be Exciting

March 23rd, 2016|Uncategorized|

As a senior in the class of 2016, my last semester at SMU can most accurately be described as a 10-year old kid (me) taking his fully-grown German Shepherd on a run. I just can’t seem to keep up. All too often when you ask a soon-to-be college graduate how they feel about leaving their [...]

Seniors, You Will Be Missed!

March 23rd, 2016|Uncategorized|

Spring is full swing here at the Hilltop! I just go the opportunity to sit in an alumnus seats at the Seniors last Basketball game. It is amazing to watch our student body rally around our student athletes. I think one of the most touching parts of this game (besides the big win against UCONN) [...]

Pancakes and Tulips and Human Rights, Oh My!

March 22nd, 2016|Uncategorized|

My class, jet-lagged but excited after just landing in Amsterdam. Picture perfect windows in picture perfect canal houses lined with picture perfect flower boxes. This is what I was lucky enough to experience over Spring Break thanks to SMU and the University Honors Program (UHP). No Destin or Breckinridge for this gal; two [...]

Believing in Basketball

February 25th, 2016|Uncategorized|

I'm not saying SMU basketball got me through the end of last semester, but SMU basketball got me through the end of last semester. Tests, homework, personal issues -- all of it goes away every time I get to watch SMU basketball play. It probably sounds silly, but if you haven't already I implore you [...]

Endless Opportunities on Campus and in the City

February 25th, 2016|Campus Life, Life Around Dallas, Meadows School of the Arts, Uncategorized|

It’s Monday, and I’m reminiscing about my weekend, feeling incredibly lucky. Not only did I spend time doing what I love for my major, but I also had an incredible city to experience on my rehearsal breaks! I’m a senior Vocal Performance major, and rehearsals for the opera are in full swing. Next week, I [...]

Snowball!

October 7th, 2015|Campus Life, Spirit and Traditions, Uncategorized|

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

September 30th, 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 [...]

Time in England!

September 30th, 2015|SMU Abroad, Uncategorized|

Coming into college, I knew that studying abroad was something I wanted to do during my undergraduate career. As a double major, however, I was worried that it was going to be impossible. Thankfully, SMU made it possible for me to go to London, England this past summer. During the three months I was abroad, [...]

Texas & What I’ve Learned

March 18th, 2015|Uncategorized|

Half of SMU’s student body comes from outside the great state of Texas. Hailing from Colorado, I contribute to that 50% and in my two years here at SMU, I’ve learned a lot about what it means to be from Texas. So here are a few things this Coloradan has noticed about Texas: 1.) Every [...]

Enjoying the Music at Meadows

October 20th, 2014|Uncategorized|

By Shannon Conboy SMU is a fantastic place to be for a number of reasons, but my favorite aspect of the school is probably the accessibility given to all students for enjoying beautiful art, music, and shows, while at the same time offering students in these areas of study experience in sharing their talents. As [...]
