“Best Place on Earth”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

SMU is the greatest place on earth. The campus and the people on it are beautiful. I have to think that when you die and go to heaven you pretty much end up at SMU.

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.

“Performances, museums, sports”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

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.
