Why should I plan a Mustang Mini?
These informal gatherings are great ways to reunite with friends you shared common connections with while in school. The process is simple - just think of who you want to get together and let us know. We can help you with the details and coordinate efforts so others know about your plans.
How do I plan a Mustang Mini?
Simply inform the SMU Office of Reunion Programs that you are interested in getting a group of your friends together for Homecoming weekend. Then download the online Mustang Mini toolkit for more information. It's that easy.
When should I get started?
The earlier the better! Contacting us early ensures that we can provide you with more focused attention and resources.
How do I obtain a list of group members?
After you sign your release form, SMU will provide you with access to a list of classmates. Make your selections and begin contacting your group members.
When and where should we hold our Mustang Mini?
Mustang Minis should be scheduled during times that do not conflict with other University-sponsored events during Homecoming weekend. For suggestions, please contact us.
Several area businesses are offering specials during specific times for Mustang Mini reunions. Contact us prior to working directly with the venue in order to access these specials.
Who funds Mustang Mini reunions?
Mustang Minis are designed to work on a break-even basis. Guests typically pay based on individual consumption (going Dutch). Contact us to hear about venues offering Mustang Mini discounts.
How will SMU promote my event?
As soon as you finalize the details for your reunion, please send them to us. We will post your event details online and add your event to our Mustang Mini registration page.
What else does SMU provide?
In addition to online event promotion and registration, SMU can:
Will anyone take photos?
Consider appointing a classmate to take photos or video. SMU can upload these to various online sites after your event.
What about out-of-town guests?
SMU will arrange hotel blocks with area hotels. This information will be available on our website.
How do we handle invitations?
Try sending online invitations through a free service such as Evite to get the word out about your Mustang Mini, or mail a letter. SMU can also provide a limited amount of letterhead and envelopes at no cost.
How can guests register for my event?
One week prior to the event, please contact SMU with a final count.
What about giving back?
Making a donation to SMU in honor of your group is a great way to give back to the University’s current students. Suggesting a tax-deductible donation allows group members to help SMU achieve its alumni participation goals and give back to an area they are passionate about.
