I did an official guided tour a while back, and I was a little bit put off by how old everything seemed. It smelled like an old church building in the administration building... when you walk in and the floors creak, the paint looked dead, etc.
I liked the people I met there, and the library seemed great. It's a quaint little area, but yeah... just an honest assessment. To give some perspective, I walked around the University of Oklahoma law facility and enjoyed the aesthetics a lot more. Don't get me wrong, I would choose SMU over OU, but I was disappointed.
OU's law building is vastly superior to SMU's law facilities. Not that you'll ever go into many of them, but outside of the law quad, most of the buildings on SMU's campus are really nice. The rec. center is great. SMU Law did just remodel its worst classroom over the summer, and it now has a great feel. The actual law library is oddly designed, but you get used to it, and then it kind of grows on you.
By the way, zx92027xz, I'm a UCO grad as well.
