Staff Spotlight: Meet HCSMU Staff Writer Karna Small

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, staff writer Karna Small!

KS: First-year.

HCSMU: What do you do with Her Campus SMU?

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