There are a lot of cool things that come out of being involved in one of SMU’s a cappella groups, the SMU Belle Tones.

Why I Chose SMU

Mar 4, 2016|General|

It’s hard to believe that three years ago I was a senior in high school, stressing about choosing the right university for me to spend the next four years. And I guess if you’re reading this you know what my decision ended up being. That’s right, I decided to pack up my stuff, leave Colorado [...]

Fun in Taos

Mar 4, 2016|Academics, Taos|

This past winter break, I went to SMU’s campus in Taos, New Mexico and completed a January Term class.

I chose to take [...]

Believing in Basketball

Feb 25, 2016|Athletics|

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 [...]

SMU’s Lyle School of Engineering is one of a kind. My favorite part of the Lyle School is the Innovation Gymnasium.

It’s Monday, and I’m reminiscing about my weekend, feeling incredibly lucky.

On February 6, SMU had its own version of Mardi Gras in the form of Krewe de Ware.

From California to Country

Last Thursday, I went country dancing for the 5th time in my eight semesters of college. This was a special moment because not only is it my last semester at SMU, but it was the first time that I stepped foot in Billy Bob’s, one of the most famous country dancing venues in Texas. Billy [...]

Not Such an Anomaly

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 [...]

Hygee!

Dec 4, 2015|SMU Abroad|

I’m currently sitting in the Innsbruck, Austria airport awaiting my flight back to Copenhagen, Denmark where I’ve been lucky enough to spend the past 4 months studying abroad. To answer the typical question, “Why Copenhagen?” I’ll be honest and say it was the one program that had course options for both my Environmental Studies and [...]

The SMU Dance majors immediately hit the ground running this semester. On the evening following the first day of classes, we jumped into rehearsals for the Fall Hope Show, which we recently performed.

A Unique Experience: A Guest Lecture by President Bush

Dec 4, 2015|Academics, Bush Library, Cox Business School|
