在Southern Methodist University南卫理公会大学就读是怎样一番体验,【携尔留学】给大家翻译整理了南卫理公会大学的留学体验,以供参考。

1.Academics: Top notch academics! I was deciding between here and Georgetown, but ultimately wanted a more "college" experience so I chose SMU. I'm in Cox and the professors are amazing. I am also a Fashion Media major, which is a really great program and very up and coming. I have no doubt in my mind that I will get an incredible job right out of college

学术:一流的学术!我一度在这里和乔治城大学之间徘徊,我最后还是选择了SMU,因为我想去一个更具有大学教学经验的地方。我在Cox学院,这里的教授都很棒。我学的是时尚传媒专业,真是个很棒和又有前途的的专业,我毫不怀疑毕业后自己会找到一个非常好的工作。

2.Academics: We have very underrated academics here at SMU; I was considering top schools only (Virginia, Michigan, Duke, etc.) and I came here believing that I could get the same if not better education and SMU has lived up to that idea; i feel adequately challenged, have a wide variety of classes to choose from, have very small classes with great access to professors, and I can't wait to start taking classes in the very highly ranked Cox School of Business.

学术:SMU这里的学术被严重低估了。我曾经只考虑一些顶尖学院(弗吉尼亚,密歇根,杜克大学等等),最后我来到这里是因为我相信我能在这里得到同样质量的教育,SUM也没有辜负我这个想法。我觉得这里很有挑战性,有很多可以选择的课程,还有很棒的教授开设的小班课程。我已经等不及要在这个排名很高的考克斯商学院学习了。

3.Academics: My major is a mix between business and computer science, it's called Engineering and Management Informational Sciences (EMIS). I not only get the opportunity to study a useful major such as computer science, but I get to take advantage of our world renowned business school. All of the facilities and classrooms are above average and kept looking nicely. And the job opportunities for SMU students are endless.

学术:我的专业融合了商科和电脑科学方面的东西,是叫做工程管理信息科学(EMIS)。我不仅能学到一门有用的专业,比如说电脑技术,还能利用我们世界知名的商学院资源。所有的基础设施和教室都比一般的要好些,看着都很舒服。SMU学生的求职机会是很多的。

4.Academics: SMU has great profs and the curriculum is difficult, but in a good way that makes a degree from SMU respectable. The new curriculum is confusing, but I believe it is being changed so that doesn't deduct points. Everyone likes to study in Fondren library, it is big and has tons of resources.

学术:SMU有非常优秀的教授,课程设置也很有难度。但往好的说,那让SMU的学位含金量很高。新的课程设置有点让人摸不着头脑,但我相信那会有所改变,不扣除学分。每个人都喜欢在Fondren图书馆学习,那里很大有无尽的资源。

5.Majors: Job opportunities are amazing, they offer tons of different classes and majors and minors to choose from. The university curriculum makes you step out of your comfort zone and take classes that you normally wouldn't take, but one of these classes actually became the subject of my major!

专业:就业机会非常多!他们提供很多很多不同的课程专业以及小专业可以选择。大学里的课程设置会让你走出你自己的舒适区,去学习你平时不会学的课程,但这些课程的其中之一会成为你专业的主课。

6.Majors: I'm always busy. Alllll the tiiiiiime. I'ts a bit annoying, because sometimes I don't get to do what I really want to do. Sometimes I feel I can never relax, but it feels good to always be working towards something. If you're feeling overwhelmed, the professors are there to talk to you and help you. I'm constantly rehearsing, but in the end, it feels great to come out with good work. It's a rewarding experience. Besides, working hard is something you need to get used to doing before you graduate and start your career if you want to succeed.

专业:我总是很忙!一直都是!这有点烦人,因为有时候我做不了我真正想做的事情。有时候,都觉得自己永远不能放松下来,但是一直在某些事上忙碌感觉还是蛮充实的。如果你觉得压力过大,教授可以和你交流,帮你一把。我经常做练习,最后看到成果还是很开心的,这是有益的经验。除此之外,如果你想取得成功,在你毕业开始你的职业生涯之前,努力工作是你应该习以为常事情。

7.Majors: I'm glad that the theatre department is very selective about who they let in. They set the bar really high, and it makes for a good, relatively small class who isn't brought down by talentless or lazy people. I had to audition with 2 monologues and a song to get in. Some high-school friends of mine also auditioned for the same program and didn't get in, so I know they were picky. Tips for getting in the theatre department. DON'T USE MONOLOGUES AND SONGS THAT ARE OVERDONE. Research monologues that casting directors express their disdain for. If you're the 10th Chistopher Durang monologue they've heard that day, then chances are they'll be less interested in hearing you.

专业:很高兴戏剧学院在选人方面很严格。他们的门槛设置的非常高,只让优秀的人进来,小班授课是为天赋不足或者懒惰的人。我经过了两轮独白和一次试唱才得以被录取。我的一些高中的朋友申请同样的学院,经过试唱之后却没有被录取,所以我知道他们选人很挑剔。申请喜剧学院的秘诀是——别用那些老套的独白和试唱!找那些符合导演表达他们忽略的独白。如果你选择的是Chistopher Durang 的独白第十个,那天他们又听过了的话,那么很可能他们就没兴趣听你说了。

8.Athletics: I went to a couple sports events and they were fun. The students were involved, as well as the fans. The school spirit definitely showed, and the athletic facilities were incredible. I enjoyed going to the gym the years I attended SMU more than I have in my entire life.

体育:我去看过一些体育比赛,很有趣。学生们和粉丝一样都很投入。体育精神得到了很好的体现,体育设施也很棒。我很喜欢去体育馆锻炼,我来到SMU之后去体育馆的次数比我整个人生里去的次数都多。

9.Athletics: Unfortunately, this season our football team didn't prove to be what a "college football team" should be. Although the entire student body blames that on the death penalty we received more than 20 years ago, we just don't support them like we should. The head football coach, June Jones, actually just quit his job last week, and left our team stranded. Students always predict how badly we will lose, especially with games against Baylor and Texas A&M. However, there is a lot of school spirit when it comes to basketball season. Although we lost a crucial player this year, students always get exciting at the thought of winter season coming. It is also an added bonus that George Bush comes to almost every home game.

体育:很遗憾,这个赛季我们的橄榄球队没有打出“校队”应有的水平。虽然全体学生都把那归咎于20年前的死亡惩罚,但我们的支持也确实不够给力!橄榄球主教练June Jones上周辞职了,整个球队处于困境。学生们老是预测我们会输得多惨,尤其是和Baylor 以及Texas A&M打比赛的时候。然而在篮球赛季的时候,这里还是有很多体育精神的。虽然今年我们失去了一个很重要的球员,但在冬季赛季来临的时候大家还是很激动。几乎每个主场比赛前总统乔治•布什都会来观看,这也是另一个让人期待的地方。

10.Campus Food: The food is always high quality, and menus posted online make it easy to decide on healthy meals ahead of time. There's a lot of rotation in the food prepared so that nothing gets too monotonous. The dining halls close early on Fridays and weekends, but Mac's Place and restaurants in the vicinity of campus (Snider Plaza) are open late so food is always available.

校园饮食:食物的质量一直很不错,菜单也是在线公开的,所以可以提前就决定自己要吃的健康食物。在供应的食物方面有很多种类轮换,所以不会觉得太单调。餐厅在周五和周末都关门很早,但是Mac's Place和学校附近的餐馆都营业到很晚,所以总是能有吃饭的地方。

11.Campus Food: It's good for the first few weeks but then you kind of get over it. The quality of the food goes in waves, like it's really good one week then you're eating cereal and eggs for two weeks. It's always great when there are campus tours because Umph puts on great food to impress the parents. There's a wide variety of things to choose from and there's a salad bar and dessert station and Starbucks coffee available. As a whole, on-campus dining is very good.

校园饮食:开始的几周你会觉得食物都还不错,但是一段时间以后你就觉得没什么了。食物的质量时好时坏,比如有一周食物都很美味,接下来两周你就得不停吃谷物和鸡蛋类食物了。每当有家长团体到来的校园参观之旅的时候,校园食物就非常好,因为他们供应非常棒的食物是为了给家长们留下好的印象。食物种类倒是丰富多样,有个沙拉吧和甜点小站,还有个星巴克咖啡店。总之,校内饮食还是不错的。

12.Campus Housing: With the newly designed residential commons, the new FIR's (faculty in residence), and commons traditions, the dorms are truly having a revolution and are something that you look forward to hanging out in. The faculty who live in the first floor are extremely nice, and every person I know who is a first/second year loved their FIR family and helped to make them feel at home.

校园住宿:现在有新设计的普通住宿房间,有新建的教职人员住宿区,传统住宿区,宿舍房间都有翻新你也一定期盼着到里面住的。住在第一层的教职人员都非常友善,每个我认识的大一或者大二的人都非常喜欢他们的老师及其家人,让他们感觉像在家里一样。

13.Campus Housing: Housing is relatively expensive, but many of the dorm buildings are brand new, and the university goes to great lengths to create a sense of community within the residential commons. The only drawback is that individuals can't choose which building to live in, and can only apply to switch at the end of the semester. Additionally, all students are required to live in the dorms for their first two years.

校园住宿:住宿方面相对来说有点贵,但是很多宿舍建筑都是新建的,校园布局很长,给人一种类似那种有普通住宅的生活社区的感觉。唯一的缺点在于自己不能选择住在哪个宿舍楼里,只能在学期末的时候申请换宿舍。另外,所有的学生大学前两年都必须要住校。

14.Guys & Girls: All the girls are gorgeous, mostly blondes. EVERYONE has a lv bag, ray bans, cartier bracelets, hermes bracelets. Everyone dresses very preppy. Social life everyone goes out Monday, Wednesday, Thursday-Saturday, and sometimes Sunday.The guys aren't as good looking as the girls, most guys are super nice, always pay for drinks. Basketball and Football players are full of themselves.

男生女生:所有的女生都很漂亮,有很多金发美女。每个人都有LV包包,cartier手镯,或者bracelets的手饰。每个人都打扮的很时尚。社交生活方面,每个人都在礼拜一,礼拜三,礼拜四和礼拜六出去,有时候周日也出去。男生没有女生那么靓,但很多男生还是超好的,一起喝酒总是他们付账。篮球和橄榄球运动员则总是以他们自己为中心。

15.Guys & Girls: social life is definitely a big part of campus life. Many students are very affluent. I am in a difficult major, so most of my classes are full of very smart and high achieving, driven students. There are some that clearly from successful families, but they are for the most part working hard in school and high achieving as well. Definitely a party hard setting. Makes it difficult for the students that are needing to work harder and make the grades for scholarships.

男生女生:校园生活很大的一部分是社交生活。很多学生都是来自富裕的家庭。我学的专业很难,所以我的很多的课里都有很多很聪明又有上进心和学习动力的学生。有些学生,很明显就能看出是来自成功家庭,但他们还是富有上进心,在学校里很努力的学习。显然很难去举办晚会,为奖学金而努力工作学习让这变得很难。

16.Health & Safety: We have a lot of police officers on campus at all times. We also have a transportation system where golf carts come and pick you up and take you anywhere on campus during the night hours.

健康安全:学校里一直都有很多警察保安人员。我们还有交通系统设施,在夜里高尔夫球车可以带你去学校的任何地方。

17.Health & Safety: SMU has more than just campus security driving around. We have University Park police, Dallas Police, Highland Park Police and SMU Police always driving around or near campus. And with George Bush visiting our campus as often as he does, the amount of security is even more heightened. One safety measure that SMU took that the students are very appreciative of is Giddy Up. Giddy Up is a service that students can call at any time of the day (especially at night after 12 AM) and get a golf cart ride to their dorm. In college especially it is important not to walk around by yourself during the later hours of the night, and Giddy Up helps prevent the circumstances that being alone can lead to. Thanks to campus security, all of the police and Giddy Up, our campus crime rate is incredibly low. We truly appreciate it.

健康安全:SMU不只有校园安保力量。我们还有大学公园警察,达拉斯警察局,高地警察局,以及总在学校附近巡逻的SMU校警。由于前总统乔治•布什经常到访学校,安保人员的总量甚至会更多。SMU采取的一个学生非常感激的安保措施是Giddy Up,这是一些学生可以在一天之内随时呼叫帮助的服务(尤其是午夜12点以后),是用一个高尔夫球车把学生护送到宿舍。尤其注意的是夜里很晚以后别一个人走夜里,Giddy Up这项举措有助于预防一个人时某些状况的发生。多亏了校园安保人员,所有的校警以及Giddy Up这项服务,我们的校园犯罪率非常低。对此我们很感激。

18.Administration: Although many people dislike the administration, they are blinded by the immediate effects and aren't able to see the big picture. With the Second Century Campaign the admin has been able to raise over a billion (that's right BILLION dollars) for the school. Being someone who works with them a lot, they are very nice and always open to suggestions.

校园管理:虽然很多人不喜欢校园管理方面的事,但他们是被一时的影响蒙住了眼,看不到长远的影响。随着第二个世纪大战,学校的管理方面的经费已经提高到了十亿美元(是的,十亿美元)。作为和他们接触很多的人,我觉得他们人都很好,对于建议也大都持开放态度。

19.Transportation: A lot of people bring cars. If you don't bring one you'll know plenty of people that did. You'll need a car to run errands or go out to eat. There's an SMU bus system but almost no one uses it, and I honestly don't know where it goes. Maybe across the freeway? Uber is a big part of SMU. It's more expensive than taxis, but it's much nicer and they won't take advantage of you if you're drunk.

交通:很多人有自己的车。如果你没有,你也会认识很多有车的人。你会需要开车去跑一些差事或者出去吃饭什么的。有一个校园巴士,但是几乎没有人用,老实说,我都不知道它往哪开。或许是去高速路哪里?Uber是学校交通方面很重要的一部分,它要比出租车贵,但很不错,既是你喝醉了,在车费方面人家也不会占你便宜的。

20.Transportation: The bus system and rail system are very limited, because Dallas is so spread out. Students rarely use them unless for big events like the State Fair. Most people take cabs, but now that there is Uber and Lyft so everyone uses them. You don't need a car your freshmen year, but as you start finding jobs its nice to have one by the end of your sophomore year. Everything you need is within walking distance your first two years.

交通:巴士系统以及地铁系统都很有限,因为达拉斯是一个整体布局散的很开的城市。学生很少乘坐它们,除非是有什么重大事件发生,比如州博览会。很多人会乘出租,但现在有 Uber 和 Lyft系统,每个人基本都在用。大一的时候你没必要买车,但你大二末期开始找工作的时候有车是很方便的。前两年你需要的所有东西基本都在步行范围内。

21.Local Area: Dallas is incredible! The nightlife is awesome, there are so many restaurants and great shopping! SMU is the premiere school for Dallas businesses and companies to pull interns from so there are unreal intern opportunities and you are only competition is the fellow SMU students, so you are competing against maybe 5 people for a spot instead of 500.

本地概况:达拉斯是很棒的城市。夜生活丰富多彩,有很多很棒的餐厅和购物场所。SMU是达拉斯的商业机构和公司的人才储备学校,有很多在学校挑选实习生的机会,所以有一些虚拟的实习机会,你的竞争对手就是SMU的学生,一个岗位你的竞争对手或许是5个人而不是500人。

22.Local Area: Dallas is full of great restaurants, bars, parks, and entertainment. Every night you could find something to do (but then you wouldn't be getting much sleep). It is also a very clean and well protected city, so it is definitely safe to raise a family in. The people here are so so so incredibly nice (yes, Southern Hospitality is a real thing!) and are genuinely sincere when they talk to you. The sports teams around aren't that great, but they are fun to watch nonetheless. Dallas is a great city to go to school by.

本地概况:达拉斯到处都是餐厅,酒吧,停车场以及娱乐场所。每夜你都有乐子(但是过后你就睡不了多久)。这也是一个非常干净,维护的很好的城市,所以这绝对是很好的生活的地方。这里的人们都非常友好(是的,南方人的好客是真的!)并且他们和你交谈的时候都非常的真诚。这里的体育队伍不是非常的出色,但依然充满乐趣。达拉斯绝对是一个很棒的城市。

23.Overall Experience: Wouldn't want to go anywhere else. Beyond thankful that I made the college choice I did in SMU. I can only hope that new applicants see the value in SMU. Not only is everybody smart, motivated, fun, and outgoing, they also know how to party. You also will have no problem with jobs, almost everybody gets an amazing job. Every person I have met here seems like they will be beyond successful and a true world changer.

总体评价:你不会再想去别的地方了!选择了SMU我感觉很欣慰。我希望SMU的新的申请者们能看到这个学校的价值所在。每个人不仅是聪明,有动力,充满乐趣,性格外向开朗,他们还懂得如何举办晚会。求职方面你也不会遇到问题的,几乎每个人都能找到很好的工作。在这我遇到的每个人给人感觉他们一定会成功,会成为一个改变世界的人。
