Alma Mater: University of Dallas 2016, Jagiellonian University 2019
Degree: B.A. Comparative Literature, M.A. TransAtlantic Studies
Why I love UD/Why I Recruit for UD: I think UD is unique because it really embodies the liberal arts and Catholic identity.
They say UD is the “Catholic University for Independent Thinkers” and I really believe
this to be true. I love UD because it is much more than just books and learning topics
in your major. We learn how to think critically and form firm beliefs.
Favorite Spot on Campus: I like to sit in front of Braniff and face the tower. I feel like you can really see
the campus from there.
Where Do You Hang Out in Dallas? There is always something to do in Dallas! My favorite place is Legacy West in Plano.
There is a really cool Starbucks Reserve where they serve you in ceramic cups and
this reminds me of the Starbucks’ in Europe.
Favorite Book: That is very difficult for me since I am a Comparative Literature major and they are
constantly changing. My top three would have to be: The Cyberiad by Stanislaw Lem, Oryx and Crake by Margaret Attwood and the London Large crime series! (Which was actually written by my former Professor from the Jagiellonian)
Favorite Place to Eat in DFW: I really don’t eat out often but I love Public School brunches. There are a few in
Favorite UD Event: My favorite would have to be Charity Week. There is something fun happening every
day of the week and it is for a good cause. Charity Week was always a good time during
my undergraduate experience.
Favorite/Coolest Place I have Visited: My most favorite place is Krakow, Poland. It has been a city I have been enchanted
with since my first visit at 3 years old. I lived there for two years while getting
my masters. I love the Main Square and miss feeding the pigeons. I could go on and
on about it!
Advice to Prospective Students: I think the most important thing I would say is take a tour and visit the campus.
One thing I wish I had done was visit campus during the school year. That really gives
you a better feel for what you would be experiencing. If possible, sit in on a class
and talk to current students, it’s the best way to see how you fit in with a university.
