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.
