Year I joined the Office of Admission: 2014

Favorite thing about SMU: SMU has the most passionate, knowledgeable, caring, and well-connected faculty that I've ever encountered. They care about you and your growth as a person, in addition to what you offer as a student in the classroom.

Favorite place on campus: Perkins Chapel! It's not only one of the most sought after wedding venues in Dallas, it's a beautiful, calm space to pray, think, or reflect during the day.

Favorite restaurant near campus: I cannot pass up a crab BLT at Dive Coastal Cuisine in Snider Plaza! The food is always fresh and delicious. While you're there, try something from the iced tea bar!

What I recommend during your stay in Dallas: The Dallas Arts District is one of my favorite hangout spots in the city. Whether catching a performance or just eating lunch, you’re bound to have a great time in a beautiful environment.
