Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: The University of Dallas masters the art of taking higher education beyond the classroom and preparing students to become well-rounded, global citizens. Students at UD, regardless of major, are able to think critically, creatively and spiritually to make sense of the world around them and the life that awaits them post-graduation. The Core builds an undeniable sense of community which is further strengthened by the incredible opportunity given to UD students to spend a semester in Rome, Italy. The combination of the Core curriculum, Rome Program and Catholic identity is absolutely unmatched in my opinion and provides students with a set of life skills that I think our generation needs in order to positively impact our country and the world abroad. I did not begin my educational journey at UD, but I got here as fast as I could!

Advice to Prospective Students: Like everything in life, you will reap what you sow. Invest in your classes, your friendships and hobbies (not necessarily always in that order). Find balance, step outside of your comfort zone and never let school get in the way of your education.
