In the modern history of Aggie Muster, there had not been an occasion on which every name on an annual list of deceased former students was called in a single location—until this year.
On April 21, 2018, every name on the Worldwide Roll Call for the Absent was called, and answered with "Here," in a live reading that began at 6:51 a.m., which was sunrise in Aggieland.
This roll call originated from the Neely Mezzanine in the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center. Speakers mounted on the building carried the roll call over the Texas A&M University campus, and a live internet stream made the entire reading available to the worldwide Aggie Network.
In this episode of our video series Around The Association, get an inside look at this historic roll call.
A recording of the live Worldwide Roll Call for the Absent is available for on-demand viewing at tx.ag/Here.
Gifts made to The Association of Former Students help provide many Muster services, allow the daily maintenance of the Worldwide Muster Roll Call, and mail thousands of invitations to Aggies for local Musters.
