The time-honored tradition of “Homecoming” continues to be a favorite event for many SMSU Alumni. Cheer on the Mustangs, reminisce with old friends, revisit old hangouts, renew past connections or make new ones with other alumni. Thank you for coming home and sharing your Southwest Stories with family and friends! Be sure to save the date for Homecoming 2023 on Saturday, October 14th, to celebrate our Mustang pride and Southwest tradition.
