My Time at SMU

I’m finding it extremely difficult to accept that my time at SMU is coming to an end. The last three years have been the most challenging, exciting and unforgettable years of my life.

Then on the weekend I would let off some steam with my friends.

Now that graduation is right around the corner, I often get asked, “What are you going to do once you graduate!?” I want to honestly respond like this

Fortunately for me, SMU has provided me with supportive friends and an excellent education so I should end up alright. On that note, I am grateful for my time at SMU and I bid it farewell!!
