Virtual reality recessional for December 2020 graduates

Dear December 2020 Graduates,

You are about to cross the threshold from SMU students to SMU graduates, and we are thrilled to welcome you to the worldwide family of Mustang alumni. We know 2020 has been tough, and we want to provide you access to our cherished Hilltop traditions, even if they look a bit different this year.

The Rotunda Recessional is a beloved tradition representing your passage from student to scholar. Since COVID-19 safety protocols prevent us from hosting graduates beneath the iconic Dallas Hall Rotunda this December, we created this augmented reality experience for you. Please click this link to launch it on your phone or mobile device. Enjoy and Pony Up, Mustang grads!
