What do you like most about being a Hunt Scholar?

When I think of being a Hunt Scholar, I think of opportunity: the opportunity to be a leader on campus, the opportunity to take part in the Tate Lecture Series, the opportunity to see and meet new people regularly. I am grateful to have received this opportunity, and I plan to show SMU what being a Hunt Scholar is all about.
