It might be Halloween, but today is the official start of SMU’s Homecoming festivities, planned by SMU Student Foundation. It kicked off this morning with a community service event, and busloads of SMU students headed to a home for senior citizens, a community festival and other events around the metroplex to help out and give back to their community.

Participants in today’s event all received points that go towards their organization in the homecoming competition, which culminates in the crowning of a homecoming king and queen during the halftime ceremonies of the homecoming football game against Rice. With today’s 27-13 win over Tulsa, the Mustangs will have another shot to bring that 4-4 record over .50.

Other homecoming events taking place this week include tomorrow’s Field Day, the presentation of the candidates on Monday, the annual Homecoming College Bowl on Wednesday, 24-hour float building on Thursday, and the annual parade on the boulevard before Saturday’s game.

Don’t miss out on this week, it’s truly one of the university’s best traditions.
