Year I joined the Office of Admission: 2015
Favorite thing about SMU: The students. They are always genuinely interested in knowing how your day is going, and they are ambitious and passionate enough to chase their dreams and take advantage of all that SMU and Dallas have to offer.
Favorite Place on Campus: The Boulevard is such a cool way to enter campus and completely be immersed in all of the beauty that is here at SMU. You can drive up the Boulevard to see the sights of campus, or grab a blanket and a good book and enjoy an afternoon reading under one of the massive trees lining the Boulevard!
Favorite place in Dallas: Getting last minute tickets to check out the five professional sports teams here in Dallas. Whether it’s catching an afternoon game to watch the Rangers (MLB franchise) play, or getting rink-side seats to watch the Dallas Stars (NHL franchise), there is something for all sports lovers to enjoy on a free afternoon!
Favorite restaurant near Campus: The Velvet Taco has a relaxed atmosphere that allows you to try a new spin on authentic Tex-Mex cuisine: tacos. They offer fresh and healthy ingredients and great outdoor seating. From the vegetarian cous-cous taco to the tikka chicken taco, it’s great for brunch or even a late night snack!
What I recommend during your stay in Dallas: Explore down the Katy Trail in Dallas. It’s a great place to get back in touch with nature and quiet and escape the “city life” for a little bit. I am into biking and running and the Katy Trail is a perfect way to explore the city and get a workout in!
