4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of different locations to stay off campus. Almost all upper class men choose to live off campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Dallas is home to some of the best restaurants in the United States. There's plenty of options.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They try their best I guess, but there are a lot of issues with the rules on campus. While protecting us in some cases, they also just limit what we can do.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: A lot of money to give out and they spread it throughout the student body fairly well.

5 College Freshman

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

While some SMU students will gladly tell you that this school was their first choice, there are plenty of others that will admit that they're not sure how they got here. For several, SMU was a last-minute decision that turned into a remarkable one. SMU offers individual schools and majors that are praised nationwide. Students are able to test several interests before choosing a particular major. While there are many other things to brag about, like the study abroad programs, the social scene is a key aspect of SMU. This school offers introverts an environment where they can become extroverts in a small community that fosters socializing. Among the community, students get the hookups for internships and jobs by networking with friends and alumni.

An exuberant school spirit in terms of athletics might be missing, but SMU pride in the sense of academic excellence and social atmosphere is highly evident. Students get irritated with parking and other little issues, but in the long run, most of them are satisfied with their level of education and their experience. The majority of students will tell you it has been the best four years of their lives and that they are glad to have stumbled upon such a rare treasure.
