Aggie Muster thrives at local events

More than 200 Aggie Musters take place worldwide each year. Held in backyards and civic centers, perhaps with a potluck lunch or a catered dinner, each ceremony ranges in formality but all have the same Aggie Spirit. Aggie Muster, perhaps the most essential Aggie tradition, lasts a lifetime and every Aggie will be remembered.

We had an unusual chance to experience six different local Aggie Musters in 2019, when Musters fell on a range of dates because April 21 coincided with Easter. So from April 12 to 25, we plotted a route that covered as much geography as the gas tank would allow.

In Gonzales, they call all the fallen Aggies who ever lived there, every year. In Houston, a Silver Taps bugle team is made up of former students. In Robertson County, you might get a dessert brought by an incoming Aggie freshman scholarship recipient.
