Liz S. | SEU Class of 2018

Most of the St. Ed’s grads that I work with only want to do their session on campus. However, Liz wanted something a bit different. She wanted her session on campus as well as on South Congress. South Congress (or SOCO as it’s endearingly called) is a popular touristy part of town with boutiques and restaurants. It’s drastically changed since I moved here, but some things stayed the same - like one of the best pizza places in Austin!

Liz is a Marketing major at St. Edward’s University with a desire to travel. During her time at St. Ed’s, Liz was involved with AIESEC an organization that provides international trips for students in order to provide leadership training or service opportunities. Through AIESEC, Liz had the opportunity to go to Ecuador for a service trip! The organization not only lit Liz’s passion for travel, but it also led her to her current boyfriend, Alex. Alex is also a St. Ed’s grad and he was also involved in AIESEC. I always love it when Hilltoppers find their person on the Hilltop.

I love Liz’s fun personality! She was definitely up for anything and wanted to make the most out of her session. After doing more of the formal type of photos on campus, we went down SOCO and explored the little golden nuggets up and down the street. Some of my favorite moments was when we went to the new Kendra Scott store and when we got pizza at Homeslice! I’m pretty sure people thought she was a social media influencer.
