What do you like most about being a Hunt Scholar?

What I like most about being a Hunt Scholar is the emphasis the program places on experiential learning. One example of this is the allotted amount set aside for Study Abroad programs, where I learned the most valuable lessons so far in my experience at SMU. I never would have been able to do this without the generosity of the Hunt family.
