They've said goodbye to mom and dad and now they're on their way.

The third group of Aggie Freshman left Thursday morning for Fish Camp.

Fish Camp is a program designed to help incoming freshmen adjust to college life.

Members of the class of 2011 will spend four days learning Aggie Traditions, easing their way into college life, developing leadership skills and creating bonds that will last a lifetime.

For some students it's their first time to leave home, and for some parents it's the first time to see their children leave.

"I'm a little overwhelmed," Aggie Freshman Lindsey Willis said. "There's a lot of people here so I'm kind of nervous."

"I'm nervous, but I know he's going to have a great time," Parent Kathy Gretches said. "I mean these kids are just awesome."

Every year 900 counselors give up time and effort to welcome Texas A&M's greatest and most important tradition: The Freshmen Class.

Fish Camp is held near Palestine.
