SMU stationery now available via online order

Stock image of SMU stationerySMU schools, departments and offices can now order updated letterhead, envelopes, notepads and business cards online, through the SMU stationery store operated by Marfield Corporate Stationery.

Following the conclusion of The Second Century Celebration and the finale of The Second Century Campaign, the University began to phase out use of the “SMU Unbridled 100” logo. This also gave the Office of Integrated Marketing the opportunity to incorporate the SMU tag line, “World Changers Shaped Here,” into more of the University’s identity materials, including stationery.

Other changes are more subtle. The most prominent is that on several styles of business cards, while all of the individual’s information is printed on the front of the card, many schools have added the school website and social media information to the back. The University continues to offer a “two-sided” card for those who include more individual information than can fit on one side of the card, such as departmental websites and social media accounts.

Marfield will continue to update the online store over the next several weeks so that all of the preview functionality for center and institute stationery reflects the new designs. Any stock ordered through the site from this point forward will have the updated look.

Integrated Marketing confirms that all individuals and offices may use up existing stationery stock, with or without the “SMU Unbridled 100” logo.

Astronaut Scott Kelly to deliver Tate Distinguished Lecture at SMU Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2016

Captain Scott KellyCaptain Scott Kelly, the first American astronaut to complete a year-long mission in space, will speak at the Tolleson Lecture of the Willis M. Tate Distinguished Lecture Series at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2016 in McFarlin Auditorium.

Kelly took flight on Expedition 46 to the International Space Station in March 2015. During his year in space, he helped lay the groundwork for the future of space travel and exploration. He also shared hundreds of pictures and messages with the world on Twitter and Instagram.

This historic mission also included a NASA study of twins in space: Kelly’s identical twin, retired NASA astronaut Capt. Mark Kelly, was stationed on the ground as a control model in an experiment to understand how space affects the human body.

Kelly earned his Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering from the State University of New York Maritime College in 1987 and a Master of Science degree in aviation systems from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 1996. Before becoming an astronaut in April 1996, Kelly was a captain in the U.S. Navy.

Captain Kelly’s memoir, Endurance: My Year in Space and Our Journey to Mars, has been optioned by Sony Pictures and will be published in fall 2017.

All SMU community members are invited to the Turner Construction/Wells Fargo Student Forum at 4:30 p.m. in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Ballroom. Doors open at 4 p.m. Please tweet your questions for the forum to #SMUtate.

Tickets for the evening event are sold out. However, students can go to the basement of McFarlin Auditorium at 7 p.m. with their SMU IDs for possible seating on a first-come, first-served basis.
