DALLAS — Well, it's safe to say it's been a crappy start to the year for some SMU students. Wednesday night, a sewer line ruptured on campus, and the stench forced some students out of their dorms.

The Umphrey Lee Center and the Virginia-Snider Commons were closed as crews made repairs.

Housing arrangements were made at nearby hotels for students who were evacuated from the Virginia Snider Residence Hall.

"A lot of people on campus offered to let us stay in their dorms and everything,” Nicole Hartman said. “Since I'm close to home, I ended up going home last night."

"It's one of those things where you just gotta roll with it,” James Kuchler said.

Construction is expected to continue through Friday morning. The Umphrey Lee center is back open, but the dining hall remains closed. Hey, who could blame them?

Looks like these mustangs survived a pretty sh***y night.
