Texas A&M University's traditions unite our current and former students, build camaraderie and foster the Aggie Spirit. Some traditions started shortly after the university opened, while others began more recently.
Our traditions are part of Aggie life, including how we greet each other, what words we use and what we do on gamedays.
Texas A&M is home to a culture like no other. Learn about our unique terminology and explore the history of the Aggie Ring, the Century Tree, Elephant Walk, Reveille and much more.
The Corps of Cadets is the largest, oldest and one of the most visible student organizations on campus. Learn more about the different units of the Corps, including the Ross Volunteers and the famous Fightin' Texas Aggie Band.
There’s nothing quite like gameday at Texas A&M. Find out about all our gameday traditions, including our spirited yell leaders, the thrill of watching the Aggie Band hit the field and the history of the 12th Man.
To help our incoming freshman and transfer students prepare for their time here, we offer several orientation camps where they can explore Aggie traditions, make new friends and learn all about life at Texas A&M.
Some of our most cherished traditions honor the fallen members of the Aggie Family. From Muster and Silver Taps to the Bonfire Memorial and the Memorial Student Center, Texas A&M proves that once an Aggie, always an Aggie.
