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 [...]

#SMUBound

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 [...]

Rob Lowe at SMU & Other Amazing Speakers

2016-05-27T11:27:22+00:00 Apr 15, 2016|Academics, Campus Life|

The last thing that most students want to do when they get out of class on Tuesday afternoons is get ready to go to another lecture after dinner at 8pm. There is only one exception—one lecture that students (including myself) dress up for, make plans with friends for, and line up to get tickets for [...]

SMU-in-Copenhagen

2016-05-27T11:29:36+00:00 Mar 31, 2016|SMU Abroad|

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

2016-05-27T11:30:48+00:00 Mar 31, 2016|Campus Life|

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 [...]

Pancakes and Tulips and Human Rights, Oh My!

2016-05-27T11:32:23+00:00 Mar 22, 2016|Academics, SMU Abroad|

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 [...]

Why I Chose SMU

2016-05-27T11:32:43+00:00 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

2016-05-27T11:32:55+00:00 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. A Jan-Term class is basically a condensed class completed within 8 class days before the spring semester starts. You can complete up to 4 credit hours at SMU’s Dallas or Taos campus. I chose to take [...]

Peruna Foosball in the Innovation Gym

2016-05-27T11:33:20+00:00 Feb 25, 2016|Lyle School of Engineering|

SMU’s Lyle School of Engineering is one of a kind. My favorite part of the Lyle School is the Innovation Gymnasium. Located in Caruth Hall, the Innovation Gym is a place for students to work as consultants for companies throughout the Dallas metroplex. This past semester, I had the opportunity to build a foosball table [...]
