Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: 
UD is such a unique place and the students are what makes UD so special. I have never met individuals more driven in their pursuit of intellectual and spiritual growth, and finding true meaning in their lives, it is a place I am proud to be a part of. 

Where Do You Hang Out in Dallas?
It’s impossible to pick just one! But you can usually find me in Deep Ellum or Lower Greenville.

Favorite Book:
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Favorite Place to Eat in DFW:
The Truck Yard is my absolute favorite. There are always plenty of food trucks to choose from and there’s usually live music, plus I can take my dogs! Also, you can never go wrong with Gloria’s in Bishop Arts.

Favorite UD Event:
I haven’t been to any University of Dallas events yet but I am excited for my first Groundhog!

Favorite/Coolest Place I have Visited:
The Keys. I fell in love with the eccentricity of Key West.

Advice to Prospective Students:
Tour! Tour! Tour! Take time out of your schedule to make a campus visit and keep an open mind. Figure out what qualities of campus life are most important to you and use that as a guide.
