Undergraduate Reunions

Class of 1980: 40-year Reunion

Come home to the Hilltop for Homecoming 2020! Reconnect with friends, faculty and current students while taking a look back to where it all began. Homecoming weekend will be filled with re-imagined family activities and alumni celebrations, local live music, food and hand-crafted libations. As our special guest, your attendance will help increase momentum for SMU and advance our bright future. Help reconnect lost Mustangs and guide your class to meet its attendance and giving goals.

Weekend Highlights

SMU has a Big Weekend planned full of events for Alumni and guests to Go Big and Come Home.  Make your plans to see the new Indoor Performance Center and celebrate this year’s Distinguished Alumni Award winners, enjoy behind the scenes tours offered exclusively for reunion year alumni, reconnect with classmates at your class party, and then meet up on the Boulevard to enjoy the parade before heading to the game to watch the Mustangs.
