Even if you're not in the market for a college degree, visit one of the prettiest university campuses in the country. Classic southern architecture, beautiful views everywhere, might make you want to just sit in on a class! Our oldest graduated from here, and we enjoyed every opportunity to find out just where our money was going - aways first class.

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.
