Homecoming Festivities

SMSU Homecoming continues to be a favorite event for alumni, friends, students, and community members. In addition to cheering on the Mustangs, there are a variety of events throughout homecoming week that give you the opportunity to connect with other alumni, reminisce with old friends, or tour campus if it's been awhile since you last visited. We hope to see you back home soon!

Be sure to save the date for Homecoming 2024 on Saturday, October 12th, to celebrate our Mustang spirit and Southwest traditions. 

Questions? Reach out to our office at or by calling at 507-537-6808.

Homecoming Parade
Do you struggle to find the best spot to watch the homecoming parade? Join us by the Alumni Association hospitality tent – typically located downtown in front of Memorial Park, across the street from the Varsity Pub. We'll argue we have the best view and get the most candy!
Alumni Association Tailgate

The Alumni Association has our own tailgating tent at Homecoming located directly across from Mattke Field. Be sure to stop by and check out the SMSU Alumni merchandise, grab some drinks, play yard games, and more! This is all part of our newest tradition: The Game Day Roundup. 

Game Day Roundup

The Game Day Roundup takes place two hours prior to each home game on Mustang Trail and the R/A Facility parking lot and will include inflatables, food trucks, live music, tailgating and much more. It’s a great way for SMSU fans to enjoy a Mustang Experience!

Homecoming Buttons
The Student Alumni Association (SAA) sells homecoming buttons for $1 per button throughout homecoming week. During halftime of the Mustang football game, five lucky button numbers are drawn to receive fun prizes! Buttons are also available for purchase during the homecoming parade so keep your eyes peeled!
