Silver Taps Will Not Be Observed On Dec. 4

Scot Walker '90 November 27, 2018 12:50 PM updated: December 10, 2018 8:52 AM

Silver Taps, usually held on the first Tuesday of each month during the school year, will not be observed on Dec. 4 because no student deaths were reported to the university since the previous observance.

Silver Taps is a tribute paid to an Aggie who, at the time of his or her death, was enrolled in graduate or undergraduate courses at Texas A&M.

Formerly, Silver Taps was observed as soon as possible after the death of an Aggie. Today it is held on the first Tuesday of each month from September to April, if necessary. If the first Tuesday in September falls during the first week of the fall semester, that ceremony is held on the second Tuesday of September. Silver Taps ceremonies are not conducted during the summer when many Aggies are away from campus. 

For more information about Silver Taps, visit or contact Student Assistance Services at (979) 845-3113.

Silver Taps is one of Texas A&M's greatest traditions. We express our sincere appreciation to donors to The Association for helping support it financially.
