SMC Homecoming/Alumni Weekend
Nov 13 – Nov 14 all-day




SMC Pioneer Homecoming/Alumni Weekend 2015 provides a perfect time to reconnect with classmates, to reminisce about your days at SMC, and to celebrate your love for your alma mater.  This year, to encourage alumni and family to attend, all Saturday events, including the Alumni Awards Luncheon, will be casual.  The picnic-style lunch will be held indoors, so don’t worry about the weather.   Come prepared for you and your family to enjoy the fun-filled on-campus events offered throughout the afternoon.  All alumni are encouraged to attend.  For more information and to RSVP please contact Becky Snow at 864-587-4210.
