Where is she now?

Marie Dixon, a 2016 graduate from the University of Dallas with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, is Associate Radio Producer for Catholic Answers Live.

How has her UD education set her apart?

Through the liberal arts education provided by UD, Marie found that she grew in her Christian faith, established a successful work ethic, and was taught how to think for herself and β€œto seek truth, encouraged to be curious, and learned skills in communication, whether on paper or in person.”

Marie said that she was able to find what she was most passionate about by taking a variety of classes under many superior professors and becoming involved in a variety of organizations such as Crusaders For Life, RHA, and the athletic department.

How did her experience at UD prepare her for the future?

Marie attributes much of her preparation for life after graduation to the wisdom of her professors that she was able to study under at UD. β€œI was so grateful to my professors for the education they provided. They taught me that doing excellent work and caring deeply would serve me well. Interacting with my professors was the bulk of learning professionalism. I was blown away by the grace, knowledge, dedication, and the level of discussion that was promoted in class.”
