Dakota Embry

Dakota EmbryMy name is Dakota Embry and I’m a senior working towards my BFA! Aside from being a social media ambassador, I am also the Assistant Resident Hall Coordinator as well as a member of the Residence Hall Advisory Council. 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 each other easier and less uncomfortable. My favorite social media platform is Instagram, where I post all of my favorite makeup looks! Makeup is something that I was always interested in but never had the courage to pursue until I was surrounded by the encouraging community and new friends I met at Spalding.
