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 bushes, huge trees, bright lamposts for nighttime walking, and so on.

I spend most of my time in the Fondren Library, which has everything a library needs, hundreds of comfy seats, couches, TV's, Starbucks, and so on. As a student, it has everything you will need.

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!
