Happy Birthday, SMU!

By Natalie Sharp

Yes, you read the title correctly! SMU is turning 100! With this comes a very exciting time of celebration on the Hilltop, formerly known as The Centennial Celebration. The festivities kicked off this afternoon in the Main Quad where our wonderful Mustang Band performed as the Centennail Flag was raised. Students, faculty, staff and alumni all gathered for the occasion and had the opportunity to sign a giant birthday card to the university and grab refreshments and cupcakes. To top it all off, fireworks shot off of the roof of Dallas Hall. All that happened this afternoon is just a glimpse of what is to come in the next year while SMU continues to celebrate their outstanding success over the past 100 years. Below is a picture of today’s exciting event! Until next time, Go Mustangs!!!
