Class of '75 45 Year Reunion

April 3-5, 2020
College Station, TX

Printed Registration Form

HOWDY
The Class of 1975 45 Year Reunion is April 3-5, in College Station. Registration details are provided below. Our headquarters hotel will be Cavalry Court in Century Square on University Drive, just across from the site of the Bonfire Memorial.

Century Square has an abundance of restaurants, bars, shops and even the Star Cinema Grill. It is an easy walk to the impressive Bonfire Memorial if you have not seen it.

Friday will include a golf outing and tours of the new White-Walker Music Activities Center (home of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band), and the recently renovated Zachary Engineering Center. Friday evening will be a dinner function at Mo’s Irish Pub & Sports Bar, an easy walk from Cavalry Court. 

Saturday morning will include a breakfast and a speaker to give an update on Texas A&M, along with a Class Business meeting in the banquet room at The George Hotel, across the street from the Cavalry Court.  

The main sporting event will be the A&M vs. Georgia baseball game Saturday afternoon. You will not need baseball tickets as we have a party room in the Student Rec Center overlooking left field. If you attend the game, general admission tickets may be purchased through the 12th Man Foundation. Our room at the Student Rec Center will have an outside porch, cash bar and a barbecue lunch buffet.

There will also be a hospitality room set for us at Cavalry Court. Classmates are welcome to bring their own refreshments. We plan to have some Shiner beer and maybe a few other things, but if we have a big turnout, we will need more.

It will be a fun filled weekend and a great chance to catch up with Aggie buddies. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
