What do you like most about being a Hunt Scholar?

I am excited about the connections I'm going to make with the other Hunt scholars. It is amazing to have a group of leaders surrounding me before I even get to SMU. Throughout my life I've been told "surround yourself with the people you want to be" and that is exactly what the Hunt program gives me the opportunity to do. Most importantly it gives me a platform to be a servant leader to others on the SMU campus.
