SMU Rotunda Yearbook

SMU Rotunda Yearbook

What is the Rotunda?

For over 100 years, the Rotunda Yearbook has chronicled the history of Southern Methodist University. Named in December 1915 after the architecture of Dallas Hall, the Executive Council of the Student Association voted for the annual’s name after seven different students suggested it. From its beautiful art to captivating themes, the Rotunda has evolved with the times, earning awards and recognition from the Associated Collegiate Press (ACP) and Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA). 

From 1930-2018, the Rotunda was published under Student Media Company (SMC), SMU’s independent, student-led publishing company. It was announced in April 2018 that SMC would shut down. As of June 1, 2018, SMU Division of Student Affairs took over production of the Rotunda Yearbook. Working alongside students and alumni, Southern Methodist University is committed to keeping the Rotunda alive and ensure the quality of future publications.
