Class of '83 35 Year Reunion

Printable Registration Form

September 14-16, 2018

College Station, TX

HOWDY
Howdy, Ags!

Believe it or not, our 35th Anniversary Reunion is almost here. The Association of Former Students and your Class Agents have been working on setting up a wonderful weekend for you, and we think we have something for everyone. In addition to a reception/dinner, our Class business meeting and an Aggie football game, we have organized a number of optional activities around campus, and an update on the current state of the university from Dr. Daniel Pugh, the Vice President of Student Affairs.

Please take advantage of the registration information, and make your plans to attend. Of course, contact all of your Classmates and buddies, so we can see more of you.

We're looking forward to telling stories and lies, without giving away which are which!

Thanks and gig 'em!
