What do you like most about being a Hunt Scholar?

I enjoy the togetherness of everyone in the program. Everyone is a big family and looks out for each other and we have all gone through school together and always stayed close. Everyone is committed to doing their best and accomplishing great things during their time at SMU as well as outside of Dallas so having a group of students with that type of work ethic to be around has helped me grow as a person as well.
