texas a&m association of former students

As a service-minded organization driven by Texas A&M’s core values and committed to the Aggie Network, The Association of Former Students, founded in 1879, is the oldest organization serving Texas A&M University. We serve and support the entirety of the ever-growing Aggie Network, made up of current and former students, faculty, staff, and friends of Texas A&M. Simply put, we serve the people who love and make Texas A&M a unique and special place.

The Association provides opportunities to pay it forward both financially, as well as through programs dedicated to engagement, volunteering, and networking. The Association uses gifts of all types and sizes to foster academic excellence at Texas A&M, ensure the cultivation and continuation of Aggie experiences for the Aggie Network, connect generations of Aggies together, and ensure that the core values and traditions that make Texas A&M unique continue to be passed on from generation to generation. Indeed, the loyal generosity of our donors enables The Association to support programs, provide resources, and cultivate experiences for the entire Aggie Network from “Howdy!” to “Here.”

Distinguished Alumni Tribute

Each year, a select few are recognized with the highest honor bestowed upon a former student by The Association of Former Students and Texas A&M University—the Distinguished Alumnus Award. The Association will create a Distinguished Alumni Tribute outside the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center that can be visited any time by prospective, current, or former students. The tribute will serve as a constant reminder of the positive difference our former students make on their university, community, state, and world. It will exemplify the sterling Aggie legacy which we all inherit and inspire future generations of Aggies to aspire to the example set by these distinguished former students.

Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center

As the on-campus “home” to the more than 428,000 living former students of Texas A&M, the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center annually welcomes well over 100,000 guests to over 300 events such as Aggie Ring Day, game day activities, reunions, and more. The Alumni Center is a place that showcases the indomitable Aggie Spirit and strength of the Aggie Network. From the day a prospective student steps foot on campus to an Aggie’s time at A&M to their 50th reunion, The Association is involved every step of the way. Updating and improving the Alumni Center will allow The Association to better serve and meet the needs of the ever-growing Aggie Network and ensure that all Aggies have a place to come home to when in Aggieland.
