SMU campus is one of the most beautiful campuses in US. Matured trees lined the streets, neo-Georgian buildings and manicured lawn. It's worth a walking through.

Firstly, just walking around the Campus is an experience itself. It is absolutely beautiful, I believe it was recently voted the #1 college campus in the U.S., which I would agree with for sure. There are numerous fountains, buildings, benches to rest, lovely flowers and...More

One of the most beautiful campuses in the U.S. with wonderful, consistent architecture. The George Bush Presidential Center is on campus and by itself, is a must visit. Also, the Meadows Museum houses one of the best collections of Spanish Art in the world.

We visited the Southern Methodist University after visiting the George W Bush Library and Presidential Museum. We visited on home coming week-end. The campus is nicely laid out and is a beautiful campus.

I visited Cara Mi Theatre for a theatrical production focused on immigration and immigration reform. Great campus and fairly easy to get around!

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.
