Texas A&M faculty donned academic regalia Sunday, not for commencement, but for convocation.

And just as commencement closes college careers convocations begin them.

The newest Aggies, and their family, got a formal beginning to their college careers.

On the eve of the first day of class, thousands of A&M freshman gathered at Reed Arena for the hour long event.

University President Robert Gates made brief remarks to the "fish" and faculty representatives and administrators from numerous departments officially welcomed everyone to the big school campus.
