Each year, Texas A&M’s incoming freshmen are welcomed to the university at Fish Camp, a three-day orientation program at the Lakeview Methodist Conference Center in Palestine, Texas.

At Fish Camp, attendees learn about life at Texas A&M, including Aggie traditions and culture. The camp is led entirely by Texas A&M students.

Freshmen are split into camp groups, which are further divided into discussion groups of about eight. In addition to forming valuable connections, discussion group time provides freshmen with opportunities to ask any questions they may have about Texas A&M.
