Aggies helping Aggies: For over 140 years, and continuing now, The Association provides help in time of need. From helping A&M professors take their classes online and keeping student workers on the payroll, to making sure a student could stay enrolled and the sudden need to put Muster online-only for the first time in history, Association donors make it possible.
Stories of Impact is a video series highlighting people, groups and organizations that have benefited from the generosity of donors to The Association of Former Students.
This episode tells the story of Kobi Ajayi ’20, who knows firsthand the difference that a Century Club gift makes on students at Texas A&M. Two years ago, Kobi and her family moved from Nigeria to College Station so she could pursue a master’s in public health in order to help others. The assistance funds that Kobi received allowed her to provide child care for her two daughters while she attended classes.
Grateful for the support that she received, Kobi decided to give back to her fellow Aggies by starting a student organization committed to providing support to other parents earning degrees—the Aggie Pregnant and Parenting Student Organization. This organization seeks to empower parents at Texas A&M by informing them of resources available on campus as well as providing services such as food and clothing drives, emergency financial aid, and an educational speaker series.
More than 50,000 Aggies, friends and supporters give an average of less than $15 a month to help provide all these services for current and former students as well as provide significant support to Texas A&M. You can add your support at any time by visiting tx.ag/give.
