Year I Joined the Office of Admission: 2017

Favorite thing about SMU: Our students are encouraged to grow both in and out of the classroom.  Not only will you take courses that challenge you to think creatively, you can also discover new interests and become a leader by joining any of our 200+ student organizations on campus. 

Favorite place on campus: The Boulevard is easily one of my favorite areas on campus. I can remember walking along it during my very first visit to campus and not wanting to leave! 

Favorite place in Dallas: Trinity Groves! This restaurant incubator allows some of the most creative chefs and entrepreneurs in Dallas to try out new food concepts. There are so many great places to try, my personal favorites being Chino Chinatown, a Latin-Asian fusion restaurant, and Kate Weiser chocolates. The best part is you can enjoy your meal on the patio with an awesome view of downtown Dallas!   

Favorite restaurant near campus: I’m a big fan of sushi, so for me it’s Sushi Kyoto on Hillcrest Ave! I recommend trying the baked salmon roll or the SMU roll with a side of edamame. 

What I recommend during your stay in Dallas: There is so much to do in Dallas, no matter what time of year you visit! Some of my favorite things include touring the historic Sixth Floor Museum, exploring the local shops at Bishop Arts and seeing musicals at the Winspear Opera House.
