If you are in the area drive through, everyone likes to reminisce their college days. Take a walk through the beautiful campus- landscaped well and great brick buildings gives it a good vibe.

The Southern Methodist University Campus is just beautiful. We were able to get into many of the building and tour the grounds. The Boulevard is tree lined and is where there is a huge tailgate party before every football game.

Aside from being a top notch school, this campus is beautiful and elegant. The campus was immaculate and very well maintained.

Great southern university. Home school for a previous First Lady of this great nation. University offers big selection in pursuit of various degrees. Located in the heart of Dallas in great location.

Sort of a classic and unique campus. Very traditional. Oddly it seems very serene and sedate, contrary to how I guess it is when sporting events are taking place. Fun to drive around.

SMU campus is so beautiful. The tree lined mall, fountains and statues, Dallas Hall. Words that come to mind that describe its beauty are southern charm, southern grace. I enjoyed walking around campus very much.

Roam around SMU and you get a feel for Dallas history. It is celebrating the centennial of its founding in 1911 and its opening in 1915. It's a nationally ranked private university with 11,000 students. It's located five miles north of downtown Dallas.

I don't pay anything to visit SMU. But I didn't use a guide for this. I just walked alone there. I parked my car in the George W. Bush Museum parking lot and paid 5 dollars.
