M-Week Begins Sept. 11
The School of Mines M-Week Homecoming celebration begins Sunday, Sept. 11.
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. 17, against Mayville State University.
M-Week has a 90-year history at the School of Mines. 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 a few new ones.
