Day Four Student Reflection

fredI honestly didn’t know what to expect coming on a trip where I knew zero of thirty-four people. But after four days, I’ve realized I couldn’t have made a better choice than to be in Dallas with the WKU Sports Management team this week. Sunday proved to be no less exciting in terms of adventure. The day started like any other day in Texas, with a cowboy hat. After some smiles and laughter about Dr. Gibson’s cowboy hat, we were on our way to Southern Methodist University.

Our tour guide, Jorge Juarez, provided us with a wealth of information about all of the SMU facilities. We even had the opportunity to meet Rickey Dudley, a former NFL football player and Ohio State alum while visiting the Moody Coliseum.

The magnitude of November 22nd, 1963 is undeniable after visiting this historic place. On the advice of our food knowledgable driver, we finished our day with some excellent Mexican food for dinner.
