            1988-1992, Bachelor of Arts (BA)

            It has a beautiful and utilitarian campus. There are many different education opportunities for you here like Law, Liberal Arts, Engineering/Science/Technology! It has a nice structure to the lasses you take while also having flexibility for your choices! So you really feel like you are getting a personalized education. I had a fun time here on this campus, in this city, in this state. I highly recommend visiting the campus and seeing what it has to offer!

          • Testimony
            1945-1948, Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)

            A great Christian University that I watched being established in many acres of Johnson Grass circa de 1929. A lovely campus now and it has President George and Laura Bush Library. A great college in a grand city of Dallas, Texas.

          • Testimony
            1990-1992, Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA)

            Attended SMU from 1990-92. Graduated in December of '92 with BFA in Film and Television Production. Really disliked the overt influence of the Greek system. But as a GDI, we did just fine. Hope to take my family there someday to show them around.
