Between January 1 and December 31, we wrote a lot of stories about SMUS and our community members. 2020 will remain unforgettable due to the unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, during this challenging year we continued to tell stories, through words and photos, that highlight the amazing work, talents and perspectives of our students, faculty and alumni.  

We went through our archives to find the most-read stories from the past 12 months. Below, you can revisit the 10 SMUSpaper stories that were the most popular in 2020.

We look forward to another year of sharing great stories about our community!
