“SMU UNIVERSITY”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

SMU is located in a very cramped neighborhood that leaves little in the way of expansion. Buildings are crowed together in a small area which is them surrounded by many business.

“Quintessential college campus ...”
Reviewed 28 December 2011

We've done 37+ on-campus college visits from Maine to California. SMU is one of top 5 for visual appeal. Game day boulevard tailgate parties are a sight to see - trailered BBQ rigs with HDTVs, silver candelabras

“Westin at Galleria”
Reviewed 23 July 2003

SMU is a pretty school, it's surrounded by suburban areas such as the wealthy Highland Park. it's close to downtown dallas which is nice.
traffic isn't too bad during rush hour times (compared to the horrendous d.c. traffic). The westin at the galleria is a great location for shopping since the westin is CONNECTED to the mall! this mall is probably the best in dallas. it's got upscale stores such as kenneth cole, brooks brothers, pink, betsy johnson and other moderate end stores such as banana republic, american eagle, gap, etc. and you don't even have to go outside to get to this mall!
