Silver Taps Will Not Be Observed Dec. 3

Silver Taps, usually held on the first Tuesday of each month during the school year, will not be observed on Dec. 3; no student deaths had been recorded during the reporting period.

Two students who died Dec. 1 in a car wreck in Robertson County will be honored at a later ceremony. Because classes will not be in session Jan. 7 (spring semester begins Jan. 13), the next potential date for Silver Taps will be Feb. 4.

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. Silver Taps was formerly 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. 

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.
