Where is he now?

Dominic del Curto, a 2018 graduate from the University of Dallas with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Politics and a concentration in Business, is currently working as a Finance Intern with the Modesto Irrigation District in Modesto, California.

How has his UD education set him apart?

Dominic claims that he would not trade his liberal arts degree from UD for anything in the world, for it has taught him to live well. “If you use the virtues you studied at UD you will be very successful in any field.” He says he found incredible support among UD peers, professors, and faculty, and the exemplary community guided him in his every pursuit. “The liberal arts classes at UD and the discussion, virtues, and friendships that they spurred are about living, living well and helping other people to do the same.”

How did his experience at UD prepare him for the future?

From the discipline and camaraderie he found in running track, to studying abroad in Rome, and to individual classes and professors at UD, Dominic speaks of his gratitude for the life-changing opportunities to improve himself as “a thinker, writer, speaker, and man.”

He says that a liberal arts degree from UD has the potential to “make you a top notch communicator and writer, make you a better problem solver and strategic thinker, and gives you countless other things that people in the job market look for. I have found that quick reading, emotional intelligence, strategic thinking, ability to persuade, ability to grasp new concepts and teach them to others, work ethic, and writing and speaking skills are all things that have helped me get jobs and internships and do well at them.”
