A Thank You Letter To SMU

With the school year coming to a close, I have come to realize all of the amazing things that took place during my first year at SMU. My cup runneth over and I'm thankful for so many things.

Thank you, SMU, for placing people in my life to worship with. I am so blessed to find people my age who share the same beliefs as me. This year taught me self-discipline and to be strong in difficult times.

Thank you, SMU, for blessing me with college sports. I'm so glad that I can stop going to high school games and start cheering for my own team.

Thank you, SMU, for being a literal postcard that I get to live in and take pictures of every day.

Lastly, thank you, SMU, for the friends that I made so many memories with this year. This has made choosing future bridesmaids a little harder.

To prove that SMU actually is as great as I make it sound, here are some other students who are thankful for what SMU has given them.

"Thank you, SMU, for encouraging me to dream big!" - Jolie Guz, Class of 2019, Creative Advertisement

"Thank you, SMU, for giving me friends who are loving and welcomed me when I didn't know anyone else." - Annalise Hays, RUF Intern

"Thank you, SMU, for broadening my horizons and presenting me with a world of opportunity." - Timothy Russom, Class of 2019, Business

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
