“Bridwell museum/library”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

This museum has some really wonderful exhibits of Bible information. It has old Bibles, manuscripts art and many other interesting things. We saw one of the first King James Bibles there and some wonderful old drawings. Check the web for ongoing and new exhibits.

“Beautiful campus”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Beautiful campus. A little hard to drive around with lots of construction going on, but we wanted a peek at George W. Bush's library which is not yet open.

“Very nice campus....”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

SMU is housed on a beautiful campus with trees, open spaces, gorgeous architecture, all in a safe area. The campus is growing but the small campus feel has not changed. SMU is worth a tour if you are in the area and like seeing college museums, athletic venues, and see what campus life is like for today's college students.

“Visiting for college”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We went to have a tour of SMU, as my son may go to college there. It was very organized. The school is not real big and not real small. The kids and adults we met far exceeded our expectations. Lots of building and progress are going on now and the campus is very safe and secure.
