ALL CLEAR: [5:47 p.m.] Law enforcement responded to a suspicious report at the George W. Bush Presidential Center this afternoon (10-05-2023). A staff member reported receiving an email with threats to the presidential library at approximately 2:55 p.m. Staff and security immediately evacuated the center as a precaution and directed traffic away from the area during the investigation.

With the assistance of the Dallas Police Department, NARA and Bush Foundation staff checked the entire facility and determined that the email was a hoax. Normal activity is resuming, and the Bush Center will be open tomorrow, Friday, October 6.

Ponies, the pattern is full!

SMU takes on Navy tonight at 6:35 p.m.

Just before kickoff, there will be a military flyover involving four Marine F/A-18 aircraft, and prior to that the Army Golden Knights parachute team will deliver the game ball.

The F/A-18s will fly north over the stadium, so nearby residents may hear a loud rumbling noise as the jets pass overhead.

Pony Up and Go Mustangs!

An active threat can strike anytime, anywhere, or anyone, and itโ€™s critical that you know how to respond as soon as you become aware of this danger.

Take time to understand your surroundings and environment before an emergency occurs. Ask yourself, โ€œWhat if?โ€ questions and develop a plan. How you respond to an active attacker will be dictated by the specific circumstances of the encounter.

We have provided this video resource to help all of us better prepare in case of a deadly threat on the SMU campus. It is important to note that the video contains scenes that some viewers may find disturbing.
