About the Gala

Beginning in 2004, The Association of Former Students and Texas A&M University have annually honored all of the Distinguished Alumni during the Distinguished Alumni Gala. This prestigious black-tie dinner and celebration has become one of the most anticipated events on our campus, bringing together former students, current students, and friends of Texas A&M.

This premier event will feature entertainment, an exquisite menu, Aggie camaraderie, and most importantly, the honoring of the current year's recipients of the Distinguished Alumnus Award.
