SMU is a beautiful campus located in a beautiful city. I visited recently to visit the Presidential Library of President George W. Bush. It was a great museum! I highly recommend a visit for anyone in town.

This is a beautiful campus especially over Spring Break when most students are away. This is also the home of George H. Bush Library and Gerald Ford Stadium. Parking is $7 daily.

I just drove thru the University in route to the Bush Library. Quite impressive architecture. Someone described it a "classic southern". I have not spent a lot of time in the deep southern United States, but SMU reminded me of a cross between William &...More

I don't pay anything to visit SMU. But I didn't use a guide for this. I just walked alone there. I parked my car in the George W. Bush Museum parking lot and paid 5 dollars.
