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.

SMU campus is one of the most beautiful campuses in US. Matured trees lined the streets, neo-Georgian buildings and manicured lawn. It's worth a walking through.

Firstly, just walking around the Campus is an experience itself. It is absolutely beautiful, I believe it was recently voted the #1 college campus in the U.S., which I would agree with for sure. There are numerous fountains, buildings, benches to rest, lovely flowers and...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.
