A spirit of progress and positive change continued to define SMU in 2014–15, as the University celebrated the fourth year of its historic centennial celebration era. Thanks, in part, to inspiring support for The Second Century Campaign, SMU took significant strides forward in the areas of student quality, faculty and academic excellence and the campus experience. The University's progress was propelled by the extraordinary accomplishments of both students and faculty, who shone brightly in the national spotlight that is increasingly trained on SMU. New facilities supported academic quality and student success. And SMU's new living-and-learning model of campus life transformed the undergraduate experience.
