Get ready to Paint the Town SMSU, because Homecoming has arrived!! “Paint the Town Brown and Gold” is this year’s Homecoming theme at Southwest Minnesota State University.

There are a number of events planned for this year’s festivities, including the ever- popular Mustang Karaoke Idol competition, a couple of Planetarium shows, and the traditional Homecoming coronation, dance and parade.

So decorate those ResHalls and offices for the annual competition, feast at the Stampede Feed and Pancake Feed, get your exercise with the 5 and 10K run/walk and enjoy some unique music events.

And of course one can’t forget Homecoming football, with kickoff starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5. Celebrate your brown and gold by cheering on our Mustangs.

You’ll find there is plenty to enjoy during Homecoming week…so join in and have fun!!
