Aggie TraditionsMore Traditions
The Big EventThe Big Event — the largest one-day student-run service project in the nation — began in 1982 when six Aggies volunteered to clean up a local cemetery. Since that time, Aggie students show their appreciation to the community by completing service projects such as yard work, window washing, painting, and more.
Century TreeThe Century Tree was one of the first trees planted on campus. Tradition says that if a couple walks together underneath the Century Tree, they will eventually marry — and if a marriage proposal takes place under the tree, the marriage will last forever.
Aggie RingDating back to 1889, the Aggie Ring represents student achievement and is a visible sign of the Aggie Network. Students are eligible to order their ring after they complete a total of 90 credit-hours, 45 of which must be completed at Texas A&M.
Elephant WalkHeld annually prior to the last home football game, Elephant Walk marks the end of the usefulness of the Aggie seniors to the student body. Since 1926, seniors have joined hands for this symbolic nighttime walk through campus.
Midnight YellMidnight Yell is held before every Texas A&M football game. During the event, Yell Leaders initiate Aggie yells to empower the student body and assure everyone of an upcoming Aggie win.
Fish CampAn Aggies’ first tradition, Fish Camp is a four-day program that takes place at the Lakeview Methodist Conference Center in Palestine, Texas. During camp, freshmen are given opportunities to learn about Aggie traditions, make friends, and become familiar with life at Texas A&M.
ReplantReplant was born in 1991 when an Aggie decided to plant trees throughout the Bryan-College Station area to replenish some of the trees cut down for Bonfire. Each year, hundreds of trees are planted at local parks, schools and more by thousands of student volunteers from Texas A&M.
MusterMuster is held on April 21 of each year in remembrance of every fallen Aggie. Muster is held by Aggies nationwide, and includes a “Roll Call for the Absent,” in which the names of all those from the area who have died in the past year will be read. It is Texas A&M’s most solemn and visible tradition.
ReveilleReveille is known as the First Lady of Aggieland and is Texas A&M’s official mascot. Miss Rev, as she is affectionately known on campus, is the highest-ranking member in the Corps of Cadets.
Yell LeadersDonning all white, Yell Leaders lead the crowd in yells from the sidelines during each Texas A&M sports game. The leaders include three seniors and two juniors elected by the Texas A&M student body.
12th ManE. King Gill was called from the bleachers to the sidelines in the 1922 Dixie Classic. Although he never played, his readiness and loyalty embodied the Aggie spirit. Today the A&M student section stands during every football and basketball game as a signal of their support from the stands.
Why our students chose us
“Plants have always been a hobby of mine—having plants and learning about them. So I found out about landscape architecture and the background behind it and it really piqued my interest.”Lauren Kasel ‘25 / Landscape Architecture
“I chose architecture because growing up I wanted to be an engineer but I had a side of me who was more artistic, so I thought that Texas A&M’s architecture was a good combination of the math side and the artistic side.”Jun Lee ‘24 / Environmental Design
“I actually wanted to go and do some form of art in college…. Viz is kind of a STEM major with more of an artistic and creative flare to it.”Megan Hecklinger ‘24 / Visualization
“I shadowed at a couple of firms in Dallas and I realized that strictly being an architect isn’t what I wanted, I talked to other students in the field at A&M and I realized that I didn’t want to be an engineer either so I figured that a good middle ground would be construction science and I’m really enjoying it so far.”PJ Kiburz ‘24 / Construction Science
