While visiting the George W. Bush Presidential Library I took a short spin around the campus. The campus is a quiet restitude in the middle of the city. Very clean and nicely laid out. It's a convenient side trip wile visiting the presidential library.

Our son attended this school for a couple of years. he was also in the msrching band. The campus is beautiful.. Our son made many friends there. Because of the size of the campus he was able to get to classes with ease.

On the weekends, a great place to enjoy a walk on the grounds along the central boulevard. Next to the Bush library and across Hillcrest from lots of restaurants.

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.
