Dakota Embry

Dakota Embry ? My name is Dakota Embry and I’m a junior working towards my BFA! I’m also involved in the peer mentor program, as well as a Resident Assistant for the 1st floor of the Suites. Because I’m involved in quite a bit, it’s nice that Spalding’s campus is so small because I can easily get from one place to another while seeing fellow students in these programs every day. It makes working with them easier and less uncomfortable. It also means I can usually get to the pod before they run out of chicken strips on Mondays. #priorities

I love collecting and taking polaroid pictures with my camera. I love living on a smaller campus since I’m not treated as number but more as an actual student. There’s such a welcoming atmosphere on campus! The class schedule flexibility is also one of the best traits, hands down!!! I can go out with my friends on Fridays as our days off, and still not be overwhelmed with only 2 classes per session. My favorite emojis are the laughing emoji ? and the sunflower ? emoji. Being a first-time SMA, I have a deeper appreciation for the school and what it’s like to contribute to the Spalding community.
