Briefly stated…

Aggie Pride! Yes everyone yells this at football and basketball games, and we sure are quick to where a shirt that has it written all over. But do we really know what Aggie Pride is all about? Aggie Pride is the essence of what our school is all about. Our school’s history is rooted in this pride. It’s not simply a statement that you say. Aggie Pride means embracing the history of this university. Aggie Pride is knowing who came before us and the struggle that they went through to get this university to where it is. Showing support for programs that fellow Aggies put on to benefit us the student body. Aggie Pride entails not only remembering those who went before us, but also trying to reach beyond the legacy that was left for us, and to leave a legacy of our own. To embody this in all that we do. This as well includes taking care of the campus that is our home for the four or so years that we are here. Aggie Pride are those professors who make you feel like your in a family. Aggie Pride is that network that you build, and no matter where you go in the nation someone has heard of our university.So, ask yourself do you have Aggie Pride?
