What it means to be an Aggie
An Aggie is a student at Texas A&M University. In the early 1900s A&M students were referred to as Farmers. The term Aggie began to be used in the 1920s and in 1949, when the yearbook changed its name to Aggieland, Aggie became the official student body nickname. The term Aggie has come to include faculty and staff members of Texas A&M. “Once an Aggie, always an Aggie.” Because the Aggie spirit runs so deep that our graduates never really leave the university (in spirit, at least), we refer to our graduates as former students rather than alumni or “exes” because there is no such thing as an ex-Aggie. Together the nearly 400,000 Texas A&M former students comprise the Aggie Network, which is known far and wide for supporting Aggies in ways big and small.
Association of Former Students
Texas A&M’s Association of Former Students reaches far and wide. Make sure you’re an active member to get the most out of the Aggie Network. More
