My experience at SMU has been very rewarding since it has open up for me many opportunities. After taking organic chemistry, I realized that I have a great passion for learning about how things happen at the atomic and molecular level. In addition, I realized that I have a passion for research because in a way or another, you are creating knowledge by finding new discoveries. I decided that instead of going for an MD only, I want to pursue an MD/PhD degree because I get to combine the two things I like the most - being a physician and...

    SMU is the kind of college you would see as the setting for any college age character in probably every movie you've ever seen. The campus is gorgeous and the people are pretty decent. The location is beond phenomenal; it has a suburban feel while situated in an urban environment.

    SMU offers the ideal balance of everything you'd want in a four-year college: great academics, a beautiful campus, and a place to become a true world-changer. The campus has a family-like atmosphere to it, with expert professors, huge opportunities, and a student body that rivals the nation's top schools. SMU is perfect for anyone who is committed to academics, can enjoy athletics for the sport and not necessarily the win, and seeks lasting friendships with a diverse group of scholarly individuals.

    Surprisingly, the professors all seem genuine in their desire to teach and help students learn. From what I've heard from my fellow students, the campus itself is rather small compared to most schools, but its beauty more than makes up for it. Most of the people I've met, including the teachers and other students, have been nice.

    Campus is very aesthetic with trees everywhere and the facilities are top-notch. Student life is great, although we could use some more attendance at sporting events. Dallas itself has numerous opportunities for career development and economic growth.

    SMU offers a wide range of excellent academic programs that help prepare students for life after college. Located in the heart of Dallas there are endless job opportunities and connections to be made. Overall SMU was the best choice I ever made in my life and would recommend others do so as well.

    The overall college atmosphere is that of a family from administrators, professors and other students. It is a very accepting college and not just all stuck up rich people. Dorms have been converted to communities and even have professors living in them. Classes are tough but SMU is worth the challenge.

    For minorities, lower middle class students & transfer students, be prepared for an immediate culture shock, but it is nothing that cannot be overcome. SMU is a mid-sized university, and has GREAT resources for EVERYONE; once you get involved, campus will shrink. Most important....BE PREPARED TO STUDY AND WORK HARD; anything less is unacceptable.

    Southern Methodist university is a predominantly white school, being a minority I felt a bit left out at first but once you get going you begin to feel a lot better. There is a great atmosphere and the campus looks amazing. Frat life is big on campus, the classes are smaller so you have a more personal relationship with your professors.
