M-Week Begins Sept. 15
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology’s M-Week Homecoming celebration begins Sunday, Sept. 15.
Activities begin with the Senior/Frosh Picnic at Dinosaur Hill. During the picnic, students will drape a blanket that features a giant “M” over one of the cement creatures. The most anticipated event of the week – the climb up “M-Hill” to whitewash the school letters and lay the Senior Plaque – occurs Friday, Sept. 20.
M-Week has a 90-year history at South Dakota Tech. Students, staff and faculty hold the M-Week traditions close because the activities are the things we all have in common. It’s a time for students to celebrate being at the university and to carry on traditions started decades ago. It’s also a time when students create new traditions.
Here’s a schedule. Tech invites the media to all the events.
