Visit SMU!

While our campus is currently open for you to visit in-person, we know that being able to explore SMU virtually is also helpful for students and families. Below you will find the ways that admitted students can connect with our staff and the campus both in-person and virtually.

In-Person Connection Options 

Admitted Student Days
At this event, admitted students can hear from SMU admission counselors, ask questions of a student panel, and attend an academic school breakout session. We will also cover your next steps as you make your college decision. Admitted Student Days can be especially helpful  if you have not had a chance to attend an SMU event previously or have not visited campus before. This event will be offered both virtually and on our campus.

Admitted Student Receptions
Join other admitted students as you learn about the student experience at SMU and how to prepare for a great first year on the Hilltop! SMU representatives will be in attendance to answer any of  your questions. These events will be offered both virtually and in-person in select cities across the country.

Admitted Student Visits (Campus Tour)
Admitted Student Visits are offered during the week, as well as selected Saturdays. Each visit consists of an information session led by an Admission Officer preceding a 75 minute campus tour led by a current SMU student. If you still have questions after your visit, and Admission Officer will be available to meet with you. 

While you are on campus, we want to provide you with the opportunity to customize your SMU visit with your interests. We encourage you to register for an Academic Information Session with the Cox School of Business, Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences, Lyle School of Engineering, Meadows School of the Arts or Simmons School of Education and Human Development to learn more about our academic offerings (program list available here)! The times of the sessions complement our morning and afternoon Admission Information Session and campus tour.

Destination SMU
This exclusive program is for admitted students and their families. At the event, you will be able to meet fellow Mustangs while learning about campus life, housing, SMU traditions and your next steps. You will be able to pick and choose different sessions to learn about campus departments and resources. This event will be offered both virtually and on our campus.


Virtual Student Panels

This virtual event is a great opportunity for admitted students to connect with our current SMU students.
