SMU isn’t all keggers and football games, you know. The sprawling University Park campus is also home to plenty of cultural institutions including the Meadows Museum, which boasts one of the biggest collections of Spanish art outside of Spain, including works by legends like El Greco, Miro, Goya and Picasso. There are also plenty of medieval, Baroque and 20th-century pieces, making it a worthwhile trek once you’ve exhausted the halls of the DMA and the Nasher.
