SMU Homecoming, November 13-16, 2014


Well-known for his character "Kevin" on the Emmy-winning television series The Office, actor Brian Baumgartner ’95 returned to SMU for Homecoming weekend, meeting with students for Q&A's, serving as Homecoming Parade grand marshal and attending the SMU vs. Lamar men's basketball game on Nov. 14. Baumgartner earned a special cadre of SMU fans during televised SMU men's basketball games last season: As SMU basketball fans held up giant cutouts of alumnus Baumgartner at games, the funny man began responding on Twitter with quips such as "I'll be watching until I get there," and "I want to be in Moody with you."

On November 13-16, 2014, thousands of Mustangs returned to the Hilltop for Homecoming.

What a great experience, starting with the Distinguished Alumni, Emerging Leader and Centennial History Makers awards celebration and the lighting of a three-story SMU Mustang on Expressway Tower for the first time. Throughout the weekend, Brian Baumgartner ’95 exemplified the "all in for Homecoming" spirit, talking with student groups and sampling Moody Magic on Friday, and serving as grand marshal of the parade on Saturday.
