Aggie Mom Clubs welcomed new members, partied with incoming freshmen and generally had a good time at Howdy Parties hosted across the nation.

The Matagorda County Aggie Moms’ Club hosts an annual Howdy Party in June for incoming freshmen and their families. The yell leaders are always the highlight of the gathering, organizers said, and the new students and current students enjoy visiting with them.
The Nacogdoches County Aggie Moms held its sixth "Summer Yell Practice" where it welcomes new current students and provides a time to socialize with Aggieland's favorite fellows in white. "Every new Aggie in the county that attends is introduced, and we have a fun social with refreshments and yell practice conducted by the yell leaders," Club President Melanie Theiss said. "We give out prizes to the oldest, youngest and most spirited Aggie! The response has been great, sometimes in spite of the sultry East Texas heat! It’s always a pleasure, and we look forward to it each year!"
