Mini Reunion

Mini Reunions

Mustang Mini Reunions are special alumni-driven gatherings aimed at reuniting classmates who share a common SMU connection, such as a student organization, academic discipline, Residential Commons or other special group. No group is too large or too small. Organize a Mustang Mini to catch up with your roommates, Greek friends, athletics club, study-abroad group or fellow student organization members. Planning a Mustang Mini is easy – just grab your friends and have a good time.
