Favorite Aggie Tradition: My favorite tradition at Texas A&M University would have to be the Aggie Ring. This little lump of gold means a whole lot. It signifies 4+ years of hard work and determination. There is also a lot of symbolism associated with it. First off, there are the symbols within the design of the ring itself. But beyond that, the Aggie Ring is a visible sign of unity within the Aggie Family. For one thing, the design of the rings has not changed extensively since 1894. Another lesser-known thing is that the Aggie Network has an extensive lost and found system. Because each ring is engraved with the graduate’s name, anyone that reports a found ring will be put in touch with the owner. There are many incredible stories as a result of this lost and found network.
Interesting Fact: As a result of my love for music, I am currently pursuing a Music Minor.
