1. How can I get involved with the Young Alumni Advisory Council (YAAC)?

Each year in May, The Association of Former Students releases an Election Notice in the May-June issue of the Texas Aggie and by email to all former students who have attended, or graduated from, Texas A&M University within the past eight years. Applications for the YAAC will close on July 31 of each calendar year. 

The council is made up of 38 former students who will serve a two year, staggered term. For more information, visit https://www.aggienetwork.com/yaacapplication/.


2. How do I find an A&M Club near me?

There are over 240 local A&M Clubs in the United States and across the world. To find a Club near you, visit https://www.aggienetwork.com/clubs/


3. How do I find Aggie events near me (e.g., a game watching party, Muster, networking breakfast, etc.)?

One of the best ways for young former students to get connected with the Aggie Network is to join your local A&M Club. Much of the work of The Association is done through these Clubs. Visit https://www.aggienetwork.com/clubs/ to use the interactive map or searchable tables to locate Clubs and to visit their Club web page.


4. Where can I sign up to volunteer at new grad events?

Interested in volunteering at Ring Day or The Next Tradition (TNT)? Email us at youngalumni@aggienetwork.com and let us know that you are interested!


5. I'm interested in mentoring a current student.  What do I need to do first?

The Association is currently enhancing the Find an Aggie tool to include Aggie Mentors. Brace yourself... more information will be released soon about how you can get involved!


6. Where can I find game day information?

The Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center is a great place to connect with friends and celebrate time-honored traditions on home football game weekends! Enjoy great food and beverages, explore our interactive exhibits and catch all the college games on our 26-foot Huddleston Video Wall, all in a family-friendly atmosphere.

Our doors open at least three hours prior to kickoff and will remain open through the end of the game.  The Alumni Center is home to KZNE's The Zone 1150 pre-game radio show, which airs 3 hours before kickoff. 

For more information, visit https://www.aggienetwork.com/events/gameday.


7. How do I improve my resume?

Did you know that the Texas A&M Career Center has dedicated services for former students? You can find out who's hiring and which Aggies work at a particular company, have an online mock interview, or spruce up your resumé with the Aggie Network's online career resources. Visit https://www.aggienetwork.com/careers/ for more information.

To schedule a career consultation with a member of the Former Student Career Services advising team please email us at fscshelp@careercenter.tamu.edu


8. Since I’ve graduated less than 3 years ago, do I qualify for 50% off my Century Club donation while still receiving all the benefits?

For the first three years (36 months) after you graduate, The Association of Former Students sponsors 50% of your gift... It has never been a better time to become a Century Club donor to The Association of Former Students! Visit https://www.aggienetwork.com/giveback/recentgrad to find more information.

9. Why does The Association use the term Young Alumni?

Keep in mind that we use the words alumni and former student interchangeably. You don’t have to be a graduate of the university to be considered a former student or an alumnus. The highest award given by Texas A&M and The Association is the Distinguished Alumnus Award and the home of The Association of Former Students is the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center.
