Flooding rains didn’t dampen the spirit of those who turned out for a “Happy Hour with the Professors” January 25. Sixty members of Dallas Young Alumni and 21 faculty members gathered to reminisce and share news about SMU. The event provided Kristina Kiik ’06, ’10 (left), Political Science Professor James Hollifield, who serves as director of SMU’s Tower Center For Political Studies, and Gennéa Squire de Torres ’06, ’11 with an opportunity to catch up. “I’m always amazed at the accomplishments of SMU’s faculty, and I am so fortunate to have a plethora of former professors who continue to inspire me today,” says de Torres, event chair.
