A lovely university in the heart of Dallas. Wonderful art museum, The Meadows Museum of Art. One of the prettiest chapels in Dallas is on campus. Fantastic library.

Elegant campus. Beautiful trees. Go with a group - it's not the safest place in town. We are anxious for the new Bush Library to be opened there so we can all go.

The campus is stunning; the grounds are constantly being maintained. The enrollment is limited to about 1400 incoming freshmen per year with only 50% allowed from inside the state of Texas. Their career placement center is very well connected.

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.
