Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: When I came to UD, I found a hidden gem. This university provides a unique environment where students can unfold academically and spiritually. The students here seek to learn to the best of their abilities while supporting one another in every aspect of their lives. The community that is found among students and professors at the University of Dallas is truly one-of-a-kind, and those who come to UD will forever be a part of something truly special.

Favorite Spot on Campus: My favorite spot on campus is The Mall because it is the nucleus of UD. Everything happens on the mall all the way from seeing your friends in between classes to some of our greatest UD events and traditions. Plus, it is home to our dear tower!

Where Do You Hang Out in Dallas? Dallas is a unique city with great eats and entertainment! My favorite place to be is the Dallas World Aquarium. It is a place that will take you through history while allowing you to observe some of the world's greatest animals.

Favorite Book: St. Augustine's Confessions

Favorite Place to Eat in DFW: There are too many places to pick from in the DFW area; however, there is always something to satisfy your different cravings!

Favorite UD Event: My favorite UD event is Mallapalooza! It is a great event that showcases not only famous local bands, but our very own UD bands composed of our classmates. It is a great time enjoy The Mall at night while celebrating upcoming end to the spring semester!

Favorite/Coolest Place I have Visited: When I was sixteen years old, I went to Europe for the first time. I was so overwhelmed by all the history that surrounded me, but everything changed when I saw the sunrise on a beach in Naples. The calm that surrounded the water, along with the magic that came in being somewhere unknown, created a memory that I will have for the rest of my life.

Advice to Prospective Students: As you take the time to research different colleges and universities, really take the time to get to know yourself along with your aspirations and desires. I truly feel that the best way to make a decision on where to continue your education can be done if you look from within. Most importantly, do not be afraid to follow your dream no matter what it may be.
