    MY SMU REVIEW

    Bachelor of Science program is known for the number of research opportunities available for undergraduate students. Those studying areas of green chemistry are able to make use of the green roof research facilities of the new Atrium and Global Learning Commons while Astrophysics students spend time in the Burke Gaffney Observatory on campus.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Grades are already a leading cause of stress for college students For me, taking more than one science, math and foreign language requirement means fewer courses that could benefit my education. I remember more from the first mass communication class I took at Tarrant County College six semesters ago than I do from the statistics course I scraped through just two months ago. I could have saved myself the stress and used those wasted hours on a film production class instead.

    SMU REVIEW

    The criminology program, the campus size and the reputation of the school. Also because of its location, it is very central and the tuition costs are fairly low compared to many other universities near me.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I think it is great, the professors are very knowledgeable and are really passionate about what they teach.

    MY SMU REVIEW

    I like the residence and the city, and the program that I wanted they offered. It has a good reputation as a university. The city is nice and big and is great for students. My friend also decided to go to Halifax to study.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It is good, it has lots to offer. There are many courses offered but also a lot of teachers but the class sizes are small. This is good because you can create a close relationship with your professors, better than at a bigger school.
