Arden Hills, MN | 2013

Why SMU? Great location plus small size equals a bigger college experience and better friendships! My favorite class? Entrepreneurship. We actually got to design and market a product. My best experiences thus far? Winning the elevator pitch competition. My S.O.U.L. mission trip. And trying every single intramural sport!
