Just five days before Finals Week, my mom and I went on an impromptu college and NCAA DI Equestrian visit in Texas to look at Southern Methodist University and Texas Christian University. Both schools were impressive, boasting gorgeous Georgian architecture and lush groves of grand oak trees. For anyone who hopes for a more quiet college experience, these universities offer very intimate educational opportunities — both with very small student-to-faculty ratios — while still maintaining a vibrant campus and student life. To give anyone interested a little insight, I created a collage of some of the most beautiful buildings, works of art, and landscaping that I observed during my visit.
