This University has an amazing location, close to downtown and in the heart of a good neighborhood. The campus is gorgeous.
I attended SMU from 2002-2006 to get a degree in Engineering Management, Information, and Systems. I also got a degree in Mathematics. SMU has a strong academic record. We also tote one of the nation's best greek systems. Students have the ability to get very involved even in their first year with all of the student government options. The campus is immaculate. It is all Georgian architecture. It has one several awards for prettiest campuses. SMU also sits in the heart of Dallas. I strongly recommend this school, if you like awesome things. If you can't get into SMU, TCU is just down the road.
On-campus Meadows Museum houses one of the world's largest collections of Spanish Masters paintings. Free on Thursday's from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Free parking at all times. Accessible by DART from the Mockingbird Station stop (Red and Blue Lines). SMU Mustang football games played at Ford Stadium. Highly recommended option for traveling from throughout the Dallas area to the stadium located on campus (a 10-minute walk from the DART station). George W. Bush Presidential Library due to open in 2014.
I have been here for one of my grandson's recitals. A very impressive place.
