Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2017

People "have an idea for a book" about as often as they catch a cold. SMU has the cure through their "writer's path" program. In the last three years I've immersed myself into the art of properly organizing a story and executing it into a novel. Taught by a handful of authors, the program is sculpted around the rigor necessary to complete a novel and the often overlooked realities of publishing. Because of the intimate class sizes, many instructors go out of their way to instruct outside of the classroom. Outside of completing a novel and utilizing their wealth of connections in publishing, my much improved writing and editing has trickled into my professional life. This program is ground breaking for the want-to-be author and creative writer.

Degree: Physiology, Pathology, and Related Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

Attending SMU has been the best decision I've made in my life so far. The academics are top notch and the student life is great. I have had an amazing experience while here and couldn't recommend it highly enough. There are TONS of study about opportunities and financial aid is huge.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2013

Education-wise, I got what I needed to land a good job. Networking is good and the school is respected amongst employers. Biggest qualm is with the student body. Bunch of stuck up, rich snobs who are entitled frat/sorority stars who don't know how to do anything without daddy's credit card and last name. The fact that you really have to search to find a decent human being is worrisome, but believe it or not, it's doable.

Degree: Music Performance, General
Graduation Year: 2014

SMU is a beautiful campus with great faculty. I was insulated from the general campus experience as a graduate music performance major, so I had a very different experience than most.

SMU has a great fine arts program that should be more well known among students. They have pretty decent fund available, especially for international students. Faculty is excellent and administrative people are helpful!
