This past weekend at SMU was Family Weekend and one of my favorite weekends in the fall! We are more than half way through the semester and everyone is missing a tiny bit of home. So it is nice to have friends and family come spend a weekend seeing all that SMU has to offer. The University provides many different opportunities for families from the Talent Show to campus tours and everything in between. But as a senior, my parents felt like they had seen and done it all and just wanted to spend time with me. So I spent Friday night at a dinner with my friends and our parents – of course we made them take us somewhere nicer than Cane’s! And then we all went to hangout to eat desserts and listen to a live band. It was fun to see the parents and their kids eating cupcakes and goofing off out on the dance floor. Saturday we all woke up extra early for the Boulevard and to go support the Mustang Football team. I took my parents to the Lyle School of Engineering tent to meet my professors and then walked them all over campus to continue to meet my friends and their parents. We then went to Ford Stadium to watch the game. And even though it is October, it was still scorching hot and my mom and I left at the very end with sun burned noses. To end all of the commotion of the past 24 hours, my parents and I finally relaxed on Greenville at Steel City Pops before calling it quits for the night. It was a great end to four years of Family Weekends and I think my parents can honestly agree that SMU has been a great place for me and I sure know that they have enjoyed visiting!
