As we approach Thanksgiving, a holiday centered around coming together and being grateful for all of our blessings, and close out November, which is National Gratitude Month; DIS has been encouraging students to look internally and focus on all the people and things that are important to them.

That’s a question we often hear asked to our DIS students upon returning from summer break. For one DIS senior, Nora Desmond, the summer was spent not travelling the world, suntanning on the beach, or lounging around the pool; but interning at a research lab at UT Dallas. Nora has high hopes for a career in Engineering or Computer Science, and this was the perfect opportunity for her to be immersed in the world of cutting edge research. The internship opportunity was arranged by our DIS Computer Science and Engineering department with UT Dallas and representatives from the SMU Engineering department.
