The university itself is nothing much, but they have great concerts and excellent small museum of Spanish Art.

This is a beautiful campus with a law library, chemical library and a performance hall used by the university and local organizations as well. Residents have access to the libraries for the most part without being a student which makes it another great addition to the library scene in Dallas.

SMU is an oasis in the city and very accessible to area residents as a place to walk the dog, ride a bike, go for a run, visit the excellent Meadows Museum, take in a concert, attend a Division 1 football game in the on-campus Ford Stadium, or just find a quiet, shady spot to read and reflect. Top-notch university, too!

It's nice to walk the campus, especially when the students aren't around, but I think this campus has been under construction for at least 20 years now. No part of campus has escaped the constant destruction and construction. It has such a peaceful potential, but they just can't let things be.

SMU (pronounced SMOO) is a tree-lined collegiate gem in the busy near-heart of Dallas, and soon home of the Bush 43 library. Their football program is back in action and competitive, in a compact but crowd-friendly stadium that includes a grassy end zone where you can sit cheap and loose with the small kids - a bit less formal and less hassle than the grandstands, as a suggestion. Access points are multiple but check the web for road construction updates both on and around the campus. A nice place to spend a few hours, or a small fortune if your teen attends...
