Reflections of a Grad Student

Reflections of a Grad Student

Oct 28, 2015|Academics, General|

Today marks exactly five months and eight days since I walked across the stage in Moody Coliseum to receive my bachelor’s degree from SMU. Not that I’m counting or anything. I always shrugged off all the “it goes by so fast” warnings from people slightly older than me. Man, were they spot on or what? [...]

Heading Down Under

Oct 28, 2015|SMU Abroad|

I am super excited about going abroad next semester! I will be studying at the University of Sydney in Australia! This will be my second time studying abroad. My freshmen year I studied abroad in Paris, France, Oxford, England and Cambridge, England. I loved my summer abroad and I knew I had to go abroad [...]

The Life of an SMU Accounting Major

Oct 28, 2015|Academics, Careers, Cox Business School|

Although finance is the most popular major within Cox, as well as the most popular major on campus, I personally believe majoring in accounting is the way to go. Let me explain. Recruiting season for accounting majors in Texas begins at the start of second semester for all juniors who wish to go through formal [...]

The Next Best Hogwarts

Oct 28, 2015|SMU Abroad|

In my perfect world, Hogwarts would exist. However, this is not a perfect world and as such, my dream of attending Hogwarts died when I was 11 and September 1st came and passed with no acknowledgement from Hogwarts. Luckily, the next best thing to studying at Hogwarts is studying at Oxford. This past summer, I [...]

Getting Coffee with a Professor?!?

Oct 21, 2015|Academics, Campus Life, Life Around Dallas|

One of my favorite times at SMU is the fall. The leaves are changing colors, the boulevards, and the pumpkins are out. However, my fall has been spent with the Strategy Brand Management track of Advertising. So far, I have loved getting to know the 15 people that I will be spending the rest of [...]

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 [...]

Snowball!

Oct 7, 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 [...]

Oktoberfest in Munich

Oct 7, 2015|SMU Abroad|

I’m fortunate enough to be spending my fall semester in Madrid, Spain through SMU Abroad! As a Spanish and International Studies double major, I’ve had the most incredible experience so far practicing the language with my host family and traveling inside and outside of Spain. Even though I’m missing SMU life, I wouldn’t trade this [...]

My Advertising Internship

Sep 30, 2015|Careers|

 This summer, I interned at Publicis HCG. I wouldn't have gotten the internship if it wasn't for the support and guidance of SMU's faculty. The Temerlin School of Advertising definitely made sure my application and recommendation letters were of the highest caliber. From 9-5pm, I'd work on projects at my internship. This ranged from planning [...]

Career Fair at SMU

Sep 30, 2015|Careers|

A couple weeks ago, I got to participate in career fairs brought onto SMU’s campus by the Hegi Family Career and Development center, as well as the Hart Center for Engineering Leadership. Because it is my junior year, I spoke to tons of recruiters about the prospect of interning with their firms this upcoming summer. [...]

Homecoming’s Top Perks

Sep 30, 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 [...]

MSA at SMU

Sep 30, 2015|Academics|

This year I started the Masters of Science in Accounting program at SMU after I graduated in May with a bachelor degree in accounting from the Hilltop. I knew a few things before starting graduate school. I love Dallas and SMU’s presence in the city, so I knew I didn’t want to leave just yet. [...]

Time in England!

Sep 30, 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, [...]

SMU’s Centennial Homecoming

Sep 28, 2015|Campus Life, Spirit and Traditions, Student Organizations|

I got to visit with President Turner after handing out prizes to Homecoming Queen and King winners! This year’s Homecoming Celebrations are going to be remembered for a long time to come. SMU had its one hundredth birthday on Thursday, September 24th-the Thursday of Homecoming week! Because of this momentous achievement, SMU celebrated [...]

August Term in Taos

Sep 23, 2015|Academics, SMU Abroad|

This past August I got to study Business Law and Outdoor Adventures at SMU’s second campus in Taos, New Mexico and it was absolutely one of my favorite SMU experiences so far! Our campus is about 20 minutes outside the town of Taos and is entirely SMU students and faculty living and learning on campus. [...]
