Alma Mater: University of Texas at Tyler, 2016

Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: The University of Dallas is unique in that it provides an environment designed to foster a growth in Truth, beauty and virtue within a collegiate experience. The joining of our  Core, the Rome experience and our Catholic identity deepens the intellect of our students to become world changers.

Favorite Spot on Campus: The Church of the Incarnation and Cap Bar

Where Do You Hang Out in Dallas? Weather permitting, I love to go biking the various nature trails around the Dallas area as well as getting in a few rounds of disc golf occasionally. You can also find me doing a little Texas two-step at a local dance hall.

Favorite Book: The Great Divide by C.S. Lewis

Favorite Place to Eat in DFW: While I enjoy just about anything, I love the tacos at Tacosdeli.

Favorite UD Event: Groundhog

Favorite/Coolest Place I have Visited: Getting to witness both the Cliffs of Moher and hike to the peak of Croagh Patrick in Ireland were both breathtaking opportunities. Being a strong admirer of nature it was amazing to experience the beauty and goodness there and throughout the countryside of western Ireland.

Advice to Prospective Students: Visit the campus! You won’t know if UD is a perfect fit for you until you arrive and immerse yourself into culture, traditions and opportunities being offered. At the end of it all you have to ask yourself “Do I see this being my home for the next four years?
