Walking through the campus can make any stressful day better. It's nice to look at the beautiful buildings and enjoy a quiet stroll.

We came here to see the GW Bush library which was a huge disappointment so we took a walk around the grounds and I guess I never took a moment to enjoy the campus. Definitely a historic landmark in Dallas. So after Bushes library disappoints you take a moment and walk the grounds enjoy the iconic Turner Quad. They have walking tour maps in the area or Turner to explain what you see as you walk around the campus.

SMU does have a nice old college campus. The school is basically bounded on all sides by roadways, street and neighborhoods. Nevertheless there are many interesting buildings, which by the the way you probably will not be permitted in, throughout the campus. There is even a fair newly remodeled football stadium that is seldom seen with anywhere close to a full capacity. The main attraction today thus is the Bush Library which is on the campus.If you are in the area be sure and take a few minutes to browse the small village where several shops and restaurants are located just a block from the campus.

Lots to see here! Visited with my daughter touring colleges. Cleanest campus we have seen. Start at the Blanton center to hear the 100+ years history of the school. Walking tour is easy and interesting learning about the school's traditions along the way. Lots of shade, not a lot of hills. Friendly students willing to point you in the right direction if you get lost. Visit the museum on campus too. Quite a jewel in Dallas.
