Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: I honestly think that UD is a very unique school. The combination of an incredible Core curriculum with the immersive Rome program and specialized majors, really does prepare you for life after college. The education UD offers is dedicated to the pursuit of the liberal arts and is united with the Catholic intellectual tradition in a way that is very challenging to find in our world today. I could write forever about this school, but one of my very favorite things about UD is the type of close relationships that develop with faculty and with other students here. UD is home to the type of people that you will want to build those lasting friendships with.

Favorite Spot on Campus: The Cap Bar

Where Do You Hang Out in Dallas? Usually Lower Greenville or Deep Ellum, but really anywhere with good food and good music.

Favorite Book: This is a terrible question to ask an English major, but I would say that my current number one is Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis.

Favorite Place to Eat in DFW: I love to grab queso and tacos with friends at the Fuzzy’s Tacos close to campus.

Favorite UD Event: Charity Week or Groundhog.

Favorite/Coolest Place I have Visited: Probably Lauterbrunnen in Switzerland – it’s called the Valley of 72 Waterfalls for a very good reason! The beauty of this place is astounding. If you get to go, be sure to hike inside the mountains to see Trümmelbach Falls.

Advice to Prospective Students: Make the college search yours. Try to visit schools you’re considering and understand what they are about on a personal level. Talk to your admission counselor, current students and professors – they’ll be able to help you understand what that college is really about.
