The late 1960's and early 1970's were a time of great national social change with later waves coming into Dallas. Values were shifting to more open thinking, yet we were still Texans with an independent streak. SMU was in midst of conservative HP, and students were a big impact to reflect the wave. Some SMU individuals were fraternity oriented; some were questioning all established values; and some just were growing up. I was in all three spheres and totally immersed in this new adult life. Fun, friends, sports (swim team for first year), fraternity (for 4 years), an study for premed (for 3 1/2 years). My best friends for life came from this " bonding" time and many new "truths" were discovered! Men, women, institutions, and ideas all merged into this special time. My brick understates the complexities, but still embodies the ultimate exuberance! I am part of a 3 generation family that attended, and hope we can send many more! Best wishes to all on the Hilltop for those to follow!
