While some SMU students will gladly tell you that this school was their first choice, there are plenty of others that will admit that they're not sure how they got here. For several, SMU was a last-minute decision that turned into a remarkable one. SMU offers individual schools and majors that are praised nationwide. Students are able to test several interests before choosing a particular major. While there are many other things to brag about, like the study abroad programs, the social scene is a key aspect of SMU. This school offers introverts an environment where they can become extroverts in a small community that fosters socializing. Among the community, students get the hookups for internships and jobs by networking with friends and alumni.
An exuberant school spirit in terms of athletics might be missing, but SMU pride in the sense of academic excellence and social atmosphere is highly evident. Students get irritated with parking and other little issues, but in the long run, most of them are satisfied with their level of education and their experience. The majority of students will tell you it has been the best four years of their lives and that they are glad to have stumbled upon such a rare treasure.
SMU is quite close to downtown Dallas, so there are a lot of entertainment options. There are also many restaurants and stores within walking distance. Every semester SMU releases a coupon book that has discounts for students from local Dallas shops and restaurants. There is also a movie theater that has discount days for the SMU students and often has special, free movie events.
I am very happy with my major. Art History is not an easy program. There is a lot of reading and writing involved, but if you love and appreciate art then it is a great program to enter into. I would declare Art History as my major if I could do it again, because I truly enjoy it. One day I hope to work at an auction house. Yes, finding a job might be a little difficult, but there are usually a lot of internship positions that can lead to jobs in the future.
I am an Art History major and I have been very happy with my course program so far. SMU has small classes; therefore, the students get to know the professors and have one-on-one conversations with the instructors. My professors have become great mentors and have given me great advice about my future.
It was not difficult to get into the Art History program. I transferred to my university then began taking Art History classes and declared my major.
Drugs definitely are used by some students on campus, but drugs are used at every university. If you are interested in hanging with that type of crowd you can find it most likely but I can guarantee more people arent doing drugs by a large amount than the students who are. Also, the RA's in the residence halls will report you for smoking or things you have in your room. Parents, you should not think in any way that SMU is a "drug school" its not.
