My Years at SMU

Well, it’s been a crazy four years. I feel like it was just yesterday that my family was helping me move into McElvaney Hall. Each semester has brought new and interesting adventures. I feel like each semester I have made new friends, learned more, grown my education, and more. I can’t begin to describe how happy I am that I chose SMU and how beneficial my education at SMU has been.

Some of the greatest experiences have been those involving school activities. Being a part of the SMU Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, being part of the Delta Gamma sorority, being a Communication Studies and Public Relations major, and studying abroad are just some of the many activities that have changed my life.

To be honest, I don’t know where to start. It’s hard to summarize four years into one blog post. It’s had to properly describe all the things about my four years in college that have changed my life.

If I were to pinpoint one factor or influence, it would have to be the benefit of meeting people from all over the country and all over the world. Meeting people from different walks of life has changed the way I view each new experience that I am thrown into. I have met people from all different backgrounds at SMU, in the Dallas community, and while traveling/studying abroad.

I’ve overheard my friends say that they are ready to graduate, that they’re sick of studying for classes and taking tests. Yes, I am too, but when I think of what awaits…the “real world”….I start to think that I could definitely stay in college forever. Sometimes I’m ready to be out on my own in the working world, and sometimes I never want these four amazing years to end.
