Mays Business School is commemorating its 50th anniversary by uniting prospective, current and former students who have walked the business school’s halls since it was founded in 1968.
The "aMaysing" celebration weekend will kick off Friday, Sept. 7, with speeches about artificial intelligence, lifelong learning, the professional of the future and transformational leadership by business school leaders including Dean Eli Jones ’82. Camps for children and teens will run from 1-4 p.m. The evening will conclude at The George Hotel in the Celebrate50 event, which will offer food, entertainment and a yell practice led by former Aggie yell leaders.
The fun continues on Saturday with a Game Day Celebration as the Aggies face the Clemson Tigers. Before the game, former Texas A&M athletes will be at the Wehner Courtyard to sign 12th Man towels for attendees.
Cindy Billington ’87, director of corporate and alumni relations for Mays, said the celebration’s purpose is to reconnect former students to Mays.
“We want all of our former students of the college to come together as one family,” Billington said. “We often hear from former students that they want to connect but do not know how at times.”
Billington said current Mays students will take part in the event by hosting and volunteering throughout the weekend. In addition, they will host “Discover Mays” camps for the children of attendees, teaching them about Aggie yells, life in the Corps of Cadets and the Mays college experience.
Registration for Friday’s events is now open. Tickets are $75 for adults and $25 for minors. The Saturday Game Day celebration is free to all attendees.
