Staff Spotlight: Meet HCSMU Staff Writer Callie Rosenwasser

Our writers spend their days writing about the many opportunities on campus, the nuances of college life and some of the coolest people to meet here at SMU. Today, our team is excited to let our readers get to know more about one of our own, HCSMU staff writer Callie Rosenwasser.

HCSMU: What are you studying? 

Callie Rosenwasser: I am a French and fashion media double-major and a history and journalism double-minor.

HCSMU: What year are you? 

CR: Sophomore

HCSMU: What do you do with Her Campus SMU?  

CR: I am a writer for Her Campus, doing mostly profiles. In particular, I write the SMU Leading Ladies series.

HCSMU: What other organizations are you involved with (Greek life, volunteering, clubs, etc.)?

CR: I am a member of Gamma Phi Beta sorority and the social media chair for Crum Commons.

HCSMU: What has been your favorite class at SMU? Why?  

CR: My favorite class at SMU… that’s really tough! I’m going to have to go with either General Linguistics or a history course I did on the French Revolution. Both had fantastic professors leading the class (shoutout to Dr. Vokic and Professor Winnie!) and I really loved and learned a ton about the subjects.

HCSMU: What does your dream future look like? 

CR: My dream future is pretty fuzzy right now, but I know I want to be happy and always ready for something new and exciting. I really hope that involves writing and working with people, but who knows where the wind will take me!

HCSMU: What has been your favorite adventure to date? 

CR: One of my favorite bad habits is getting lost in cities or countries that I don’t know. Over spring break my first year at SMU, I got to take a human rights course in Italy. It was maybe 8:30 p.m. and my roommate and I decided we were hungry, so we went out looking for a bite in Florence. We ended up in a tiny pizzeria by the Uffizi Museum with another friend. We had a great time but got terribly lost walking back to the hotel because my GPS was on “driving” mode instead of “walking” and it kept turning us around because of the one way street system. We all got a work out and a wonderful, beautiful, quiet view of Florence at night!

HCSMU: What's the biggest thing on your bucket list right now? 

CR: The biggest thing on my bucket list currently is to go exploring in 10 different European countries, which I hope I’ll get to do while I’m studying abroad this summer!
