If you’re taking part in a New Student Conference this summer, be sure to come have an ice cream treat and tap into your Aggie Network at one of two dozen Howdy Socials hosted by The Association of Former Students.

Some 13,700 new Aggies – both freshman members of the Class of ’27 and transfer students – will have their NSCs from May 23 to Aug. 18.

These new Aggies and their families are welcomed by The Association at the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center (we're the building with "the Big Aggie Ring," aka the Haynes Ring Replica).

On your NSC schedule, look for the Howdy Social, and come over to:

  • Try on an Aggie Ring with your Class year!
  • Learn about community organizations and campus resources.
  • Claim Aggie swag and chances to win giveaway prizes.
  • Get your first official photo as an Aggie with the 3-ton Aggie Ring replica.

Connect with your Aggie Classmates on social media at The Class of '27 official accounts are @TAMUClassof27 on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

New Aggies, be sure to mark your calendars for Howdy Week, Aug. 17-22, when all new and returning students are welcomed to Aggieland for the fall semester. The Association hosts one of the main Howdy Week events, GatheRing, which features the semester’s first official on-campus yell practice with the Aggie yell leaders!
