What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
SMU is a small university in a big city. The beautiful campus is a welcoming place for students who want to get involved and meet people from around the country and world. SMU offers endless ways to get involved and Dallas is the perfect city for success post graduation.

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.
