M-Week Begins Sept. 21
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology’s M-Week Homecoming celebration begins Sunday, Sept. 21.
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 climax of the week – the Homecoming football game, occurs at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, against Mayville State.
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.
