How to Create the Perfect Email Signature

Professional communication quickly becomes extremely important in college. As a freshman, I checked my email for updates from professors and skimmed organization minutes. Now, holding various leadership positions, getting an email is exciting. There's so many opportunities coming into my inbox each day. You are likely emailing professors, advisers, potential employers and your peers as a collegian. Often, an email is going to be your first impression. You can create a positive and memorable impact on your audience with your email signature.

Do Include:

  • Your First & Last Name
  • University
  • Graduation Year
  • Major (& minor if you have one)
  • Phone Number
  • Organizations & Current Positions Held
  • Italics, Bold, Dashes, etc to break up information

Don't Include:

  • Email address (it's redundant)
  • High School Information
  • Outdated Information
  • Different Fonts
  • More than 6 lines of text

Here's an example of my email signature:

Here's how to add an email signature in Gmail and in Outlook!

You don't have to be involved in six organizations or have various awards to have an outstanding email signature! Just having your information available to recipients will help you to appear professional and competent. I hope this post was helpful for you! I've tweaked my signature on my email so many times in the last year, and I've seen my friends question how to create their own.

Exploring Dallas, TX

The last destination on my Spring Break was Dallas, Texas. We only stayed for two days, but we filled those days with as much as possible. I would love to go back to Dallas to see more of the city. I really enjoy visiting new cities, especially since Downtown Saint Louis is not the most vibrant location. This trip assured me that I want to move somewhere bigger and enjoy city life for a few years after college.

+ Attractions
  • Dallas Zoo - Located just outside of the city, Dallas Zoo is home to a ton of different animals. You'll journey through Africa, Asia, and even Australia during your visit. This zoo is not as interactive as others I've visited, but is still worth the day.
  • Klyde Warren Park - This park was build above a highway and is the perfect place to spend time outside. There are food trucks every day of the week. The park also has plenty of grass for sports, as well as books and magazines to borrow.
  • Deep Ellum - We ventured to this part of Dallas looking for murals. This part of town is full of stores and restaurants with somewhat of a "hipster" vibe. If you are looking to take a lot of photos, head out to Deep Ellum.
  • Dealy Plaza - For a piece of history, visit Dealy Plaza. This is where the infamous JFK Assassination took place. You can visit the Schoolbook Depository and see the grassy knoll. There were also several conspiracy theorists sharing their ideas when I visited, if you're into that.

+ Food
  • Food Trucks at Klyde Warren Park - We timed our visit to grab lunch here. The options range from pizza to lobster to gyros depending on the day. The trucks serve food from 11am to 3pm and the lunch rush is real.
  • Iron Cactus - With a recommendation from a friend, we got dinner at the Iron Cactus. The service was friendly and the food was so good. If you are looking for an upscale tex-mex experience, eat here.
  • Dallas Farmers Market - On our final morning, we stopped to see the Dallas Farmers Market. Inside, there are a variety of local artisan stores and food.
I hope you've enjoyed my Spring Break blog posts! Check out my visit to Magnolia Market and Waco!
