About the Gala

Since its inception in 1962, The Distinguished Alumnus Award is the highest honor bestowed upon a former student of Texas A&M University. Beginning in 2004, The Association of Former Students and Texas A&M University have honored all of our Distinguished Alumni during our 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.

Tables & Tickets

Table and ticket details for the 2017 Distinguished Alumni Gala will be available in late Spring 2017.
