22-year-old New Orleans native Charlotte Friend perfectly encompasses what it means to be an SMU student, especially during a global pandemic. As a double major in Public Relations/Strategic Communications and Spanish, Charlotte has spent her four years at SMU diving into her studies and getting involved on campus. Charlotte is a proud member of the Pi Beta Phi chapter at SMU and served on the executive committee as Vice President of Operations for the sorority. While leading her chapter through a pandemic was difficult. The soon-to-be grad is still on the hunt for jobs but will call Austin her new home with hopes to pursue a career in healthcare. She also plans to earn a master's degree in healthcare administration later down the road. For now, Charlotte eagerly awaits starting this new COVID-free chapter of her life.
