Howdy Camp welcomes transfer and freshmen students to Texas A&M before the spring semester every year with the purpose of giving them an opportunity to have fun, build friendships, and learn more about life at Texas A&M. Howdy Camp is a three-day extended orientation program that takes place at Trinity Pines in Trinity, Texas. It is led by Texas A&M students who are dedicated and passionate about making the transition process successful for each new Aggie. Each counselor, crew member, and staff member has personal experience with transferring to and being new on campus. This way, they can offer crucial advice about classes, fun things to do in College Station and any other questions that a new student might have about being an Aggie.
It is so fun to see both the counselors and incoming students’ excitement at Howdy Camp. There is so much passion and love for A&M at camp, and it definitely shows!
I was so happy that I was given the opportunity to welcome new students into the Aggie family with open arms and show them what the Aggie Spirit is all about, and hopefully I helped Texas A&M feel a little more like home when they began their semester here.
