Favorite thing about SMU: Dallas! SMU is right in the heart of the nation’s fastest growing city for jobs. There is a wealth of opportunities right in our own backyard. SMU is also so close to all of the fun sporting events, concert venues, and delicious restaurants that Dallas has to offer!

Favorite place on campus: The Boulevard is such a unique and beautiful part of SMU that I love to walk through every day. It is relaxing at times and bustling with student activity and food trucks at other times. The Boulevard is especially fun on SMU game days where you can meet our mascot, Peruna, and get excited with the whole campus to cheer on the Mustangs!

Favorite place in Dallas:
 I definitely love exploring Deep Ellum near Downtown. A historical part of Dallas as a jazz and blues hub in the 20s, the newly revived arts and entertainment district is filled with fun concert venues, quirky street-art, and trendy restaurants.

Favorite restaurant near campus: Desperados is one of the best places to get Tex-Mex! It’s a great restaurant to have a casual sit-down dinner with friends or family.

What I recommend during your stay in Dallas: The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is an amazing place filled with a variety of fun, interactive exhibits. You also can’t miss seeing the unique architecture of the museum as you head downtown!
