SMU is the USC of the South. Small and private, but in a beautiful neighborhood.
An esteemed university with variety of degree options and social event options but an emphasis on exclusionary sorority/fraternity events. I would have liked more guidance as to degree/career options. As a midway degree-changer I may have been able to avoid some issues with a more concise and interactive guidance environment.
