What do you like most about being a Hunt Scholar?

I'm most looking forward to being a part of a supportive, close-knit family! I am excited to be intellectually stimulated and challenged as I explore and grow alongside passionate scholars. The opportunities presented by this program are truly unique and I cannot wait to experience SMU with such a tremendous class! Pony Up!
