Student Programs

The Alumni Association is pleased to offer diverse gathering opportunities for students. Student-Alumni Programs bridges the gap gap between life as a student and life after graduation, while helping students build deep connections that will make SMSU feel like home. You are a student for only a few years and an alum for life - and that means you're a Mustang for life! The Southwest Minnesota State University Alumni Association can help equip you with the connections and skills necessary to be a successful student and alum, so that your years on campus can be the beginning of a fantastic experience with SMSU.
