The school needs to spend more time, and money improving its academic standing nationally, increasing media coverage, and developing support from a larger part of Dallas's population - this isn't the "hometown team".

Quiet place worth visiting walking, peaceful university campus full of historic buildings and flowery paths and trees. Walk on a sunny day, there are temples, museums and historical buildings that you can visit on your way.

Went for a walk on a sunny Saturday morning and was mesmerised by how beautiful this campus is. Beautiful buildings with lots of trees and the occasional fountains and boulevards of huge leafy trees. Everywhere you see is picture perfect.

The campus of SMU is beautiful. It is like an Ivy League colleague in the center of Dallas. The grounds and buildings are beautifully maintained. It is a great place to walk around and experience the ambience of a great university.

I don't pay anything to visit SMU. But I didn't use a guide for this. I just walked alone there. I parked my car in the George W. Bush Museum parking lot and paid 5 dollars.
