The SMU Athletics Department is recognized nationally as having one of the most generous and supportive fan bases in all of collegiate athletics. Even with this reputation,
I was both amazed and humbled by your support last year, as gifts to the Mustang Club increased nearly 60 percent over the previous year’s record of $3.3 million, achieving
a new record of $5.3 million. On behalf of our student-athletes and coaches, thank you for your tremendous generosity.
Because of you, we were able to enhance the educational and athletic experience of SMU’s 424 student-athletes. Some of the more notable improvements
include enhanced and redesigned academic support services, a more comprehensive nutrition and meal plan and, beginning this fiscal year, the ability to offer
full cost-of-attendance to our student-athletes. Despite these improvements, the championship banners we raised and the fact that 12 of our 17 varsity teams finished in
the top three in the conference, the achievements of which I am most proud are the 233 student-athletes who earned a GPA of at least 3.0 and the 74 who earned their diplomas.
SMU Athletics and the accomplishments of our student-athletes embody SMU’s message of “World Changers Shaped Here.” Gifts such as yours to the Mustang Club help provide the resources that enable our student-athletes to reach their academic, social and athletic potential. With your gift, you are Shaping Champions.
We invite you to join us in our quest to establish SMU as the premier program in the American Athletic Conference. Please make a donation to the Mustang Club
to show your support of our student-athletes in the classroom, in competition and in life.
