M-Week Begins Sept. 19
RAPID CITY—South Dakota Tech’s M-Week Homecoming celebration begins Sunday, Sept. 19.
Activities begin with the Senior/Frosh Picnic at Dinosaur Hill where 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, gets underway at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, against University of Mary.
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 everyone on campus has in common. It’s a time for students to celebrate being at the university and to carry on traditions started decades ago — and, perhaps, to start brand a few new ones.
