Favorite thing about SMU: My favorite thing about SMU is how supportive everyone on campus is of our students pursuing their passions. From faculty and staff members motivating our Mustangs to achieve, to the students themselves motivating their peers- the community here on SMU’s campus is unmatched. We are truly a family, and everyone on campus is always looking out for one another!
 
Favorite Place on Campus: My favorite place on campus is the Meadows School of the Arts building. I love visiting Meadows, especially during orchestra rehearsal and hearing the music our talented students play!
 
Favorite place in Dallas: My favorite place in Dallas has to be Klyde Warren Park. Growing up in the DFW area, I spent lots of time hanging out with friends at Klyde Warren and walking over to the Dallas Museum of Art located directly across the street (admission is free!). From the local artists performing on stage to the food trucks, great memories are always made at Klyde Warren.
 
What I recommend during your stay in Dallas: I definitely recommend exploring all the incredible local food spots we have to offer here in Dallas! There are so many great small businesses to support in area, and the restaurants are a perfect place to start. As a brunch lover, Chelsea Corner and Paradiso are delicious. Aunt Irene’s Kitchen and Paradise Cajun Seafood are great stops if you’re looking for a taste of Louisiana in Texas. Cake Bar in Trinity Groves is a must for dessert!
