    Typical of SMU, they send us an “invitation” to their block party, which seemed nice after putting up with years of dirt, trash, and crime from all the construction going on to build things. But then when we try to register, they renege, telling us they are full. That’s pretty consistent with how they have treated their neighbors for the past 20 years.

    Hey UPDad – you chose to live near a university. Pretty sure you weren’t around in 1911. Instead of bashing a school that does so much for your community, try and be appreciative of the prestige and recognition it brings to Dallas and the Park Cities. Pony up!

    Quit your whining, UP Dad. You should have RSVP’d earlier like the rest of us. Clearly with security concerns, you are oblivious to the fact that they can only host so many people. Glad people like you weren’t there to ruin the night for the rest of us.

    All I have to say is WOW! Really fun block party, inspiring presentation with the Marine Corps choir, massive fireworks display and an appearance by the President and First Lady. It was a once in a lifetime event. Thank you SMU!

    It was a lovely party with something for everyone. Great music on the field and the choir at the Center was amazing. “Proud to be an American” was a definite highlight. SMU students behind us singing along made my heart happy for the future. Thank you for inviting us to the party. My kids saw history in the making. We had a great time!

    We had to move from our home, put up with years of road closures and inconvenience but were happy to do it for the greater good of calling one of 13 presidential libraries, neighbor. Now our roads are better and our local economy will prosper as the center brings increased consumer traffic to local businesses.

    My son will be a student at SMU in the fall. The Bush Center will increase opportunities for him, as well.

    As for me, I have a 9:15 ticket reservation to the Bush Center on May 1st. I’m happy the George W Bush Presidential Center is in my neighborhood. Welcome, Neighbor!
