News from SMU Alumni: Food Drive and summer events!


The Alumni Office wrapped up the annual Food Drive Competition on June 27th. And what a success it was!

Nineteen teams participated and collected more than 2,200 lbs of non-perishables for the campus Community Food Room, close to 500 lbs more than last year!  Thank you to all of the staff and faculty members who contributed.

The winning team will be announced at the Annual Faculty & Staff BBQ on July 24th from 11:30am-1:30pm* at The Oaks (*while supplies last).
