Information Session: Yes - Fast-talker lead the session. In addition to the general information session, there are "academic sessions" by college, which is a nice touch.
Campus Tour: Yes - Tour guide was one of the best I've seen. Came across as well-spoken and smart with just enough school spirit.

Campus Visit Notes for Southern Methodist University
Was pleasantly surprised by the overall presentation. We had toured TCU with our older ds a couple of years ago and had a horrible experience. We expected SMU to be similar, but this tour was much more academically focused. The tour guide was great.
This is an academic safety for ds2, and he'll likely apply when the time comes.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
We've eaten at Rockfish in Mockingbird Station as well as the fast-food places right across the street from campus.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Covered parking in the garage on a hot summer day was nice as was the code for free parking! Wish more schools did that. Also, thanks for the plentiful cold bottled water.
