Hello Mary Hay/Peyton/Shuttles people! It is the month of tricks and treats, and we will be celebrating with an outdoor movie event…Nightmare on Peyton Parkway! We will be watching a scary movie that will be decided by popular demand on Tuesday, October 28! Bring your pillows and blankets to sit out on the lawn in front of Shuttles. There will also be goody bags provided if you donate to charity! More details to come….
Get ready for this Saturday guys! Our Mustangs are getting ready to host the Cincinnati Bearcats this weekend and it would be awesome for us to pack Ford Stadium and cheer on our team! We hope everyone has a great time at the Boulevard before the game begins, and then the same excitement is carried over to the stadium as we watch our Mustangs beat the visiting Bearcats.
Make sure your weekend plans include being safe while having fun.
Being safe means abiding by Texas State law. If you are over 21, please make sure you are practicing safe drinking habits. Safety is key!

It’s that time of the semester….midterms. We are all feeling the pressure. Less time to hang out with friends, less time to sleep, and more time worrying about classes. Try to hang in there! Fall Break is just around the corner. Try to get ahead this weekend: get some sleep and get some of your studying done to help lower your stress for next week. If you are having trouble balancing study time, find a friend or accountability partner to help you out. Don’t stress yourself out by procrastinating. One week of hard work and you’re free! Hang in there, you can do it!
P.S. Come get free Cane’s tomorrow night and decorate a door stop!
Since we here in MHPS are on top of everything happening around the world, 24/7, we are happy to provide you with the most up to date information on how to avoid the Ebola virus:
SMU is closely monitoring information related to a patient being treated for Ebola in Dallas’ Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. Centers for Disease Control Director Thomas Frieden said Sept. 30 that U.S. hospitals have all the necessary infrastructure needed “to stop Ebola in its tracks” in the United States. The CDC and the Texas Department of State Health Services are working with the Dallas County Health Department and the hospital to manage the case.
Important information about Ebola is available from the Centers for Disease Control at http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/transmission/qas.html and from Texas Health Resources at http://texashealth.org/ebola-answers. SMU has established protocols in place and maintains working relationships with appropriate health agencies with regard to any communicable disease.
We will update this site as new information becomes available from the Centers for Disease Control and the Texas Department of State Health Services.
If you live on the fourth, third, or second floor of your building, you’ve probably already had an awkward encounter in the elevator. Maybe you stepped into the elevator before letting the other person out or there was a weird smell invading your nostrils. I get it, we’ve all been there. But instead of resorting to your phone or turning to face the elevator wall, try giving them a smile. Ask them how they’re doing. Just maybe you’ll make a new friend.
