Founders' Day Weekend

Founders' Day Weekend

Get ready for two days of Mustang pride and family fun as SMU celebrates the first Founders’ Day Weekend of the University’s second century on April 15 and 16.

Friday

You can start Friday in "the heart of the University" with the celebration of the donors to the renovation of Fondren Library, followed by the release of the centennial history book. That evening, honor the generous donors and tireless volunteers who are the founders of SMU’s second century at the Campaign Finale, when you can be one of the first to stroll the new Crain Family Centennial Promenade. End the day enjoying the tradition of Sing Song.

Saturday

On Saturday, join in Community Day, featuring profs, paintings and pigskin: hear our great scholars talk about their cutting-edge work at Inside SMU, enjoy family-friendly activities (and the new Dalí!) at the Meadows Museum and get to know the 2016 Mustang Football team at the Mustang Fan Fair and spring football game. And don’t forget about the other special library and museum exhibitions on campus.
