We attended a basketball game as a guest of the visiting coach. We were seated by the student section and I have never witnessed such rudeness and profanity directed at the visiting coach and team. I might excuse this behavior and chalk it up to the game atmosphere and immaturity, but the Alumni that were seated behind us were just as bad.

We were with friends who took us through the campus. It is a beautiful southern looking facility. I sure wish they would have stopped and let us explore some of the buildings. We will certainly go back sometime by ourselves and check it out!

We walked from the Meadows Art Gallery to the Bush Library through the beautiful campus. Bluebonnets were blooming around the Mustang sculpture in April. We even took time to enter the Sport Center and view the honorees.

After looking at a number of well-rated schools both in the South and outside, both of our children independently decide to attend here. After almost three years, we are extremely pleased.

If you have never considered the school or never been on the campus, I highly recommend a trip. It is a beautiful campus in the middle of the Highland Park/Park Cities areas of Dallas. The buildings are striking, the grounds well-maintained, and everything is so clean, especially for a college campus.

But, the biggest thing that I always take away from a trip to campus is how happy the students appear to be. There is a relaxed but happily energetic feel to the campus that many campuses lack. Whether a prospective student or parent or just a visitor, I recommend spending some time here on your next trip to Dallas.
