Howdy, Ags!

Our Reunion details have been finalized and we cannot wait to see all of you to help us BTHO Alabama!

Registration is now open, and our weekend officially begins on the afternoon of Friday, Oct. 11 in sunny College Station! Whether you were on campus recently or haven't been back since you crossed that stage at graduation there is always something changing and fascinating to see. We have some tours planned of the new Music Activities Center, the Leach Teaching Gardens and the new Zachry Engineering Complex. Come have a look at these amazing facilities or wander around campus on your own.

We then want to see everyone Friday evening for cocktails, a nice dinner, and a business meeting followed by midnight yell! Whoop! On Saturday we will have a BBQ tailgate prior to the game. You can still get game tickets through our Class block (details below) or watch the game on the Huddleston Video Wall in the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center.
