10 Years of Boulevarding screencapTen years ago, SMU celebrated the first Universitywide tailgating party to be dubbed “The Boulevard.” The date was Sept. 2, 2000, during the opening of a brand-new Gerald J. Ford Stadium, when a sellout crowd watched the Mustangs beat Kansas.

As Homecoming 2010 approaches, President R. Gerald Turner shares the origin of The Boulevard at SMU, from its inspiration at Ole Miss to the unique qualities that have made it a University tradition.
