A large campus once you get inside it with some very interesting buildings both old and new to take a look at.

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 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.
