SMU has quite a hefty price tag, unfortunately, but it goes to pretty good use. All students get the Office Suite, plus accessible professors, meaning they're paid to be there when you need them. The food options aren't bad, and there are nice amenities like Giddy-Up, a golf cart service which provides late night rides across campus for all students, 7 days a week. There's a lot of safety on campus, and a lot of really awesome free events, including all the sports games and campus traditions, plus big-name concerts (most recently, B.o.B.).
