Dorm rooms have probably never been cleaner. That's because parents have invaded the campus at Texas A&M.

It's the University's parents' weekend.

Thousands of college kids and their moms and dads filled their plates and their stomachs at the annual Bevo Burn Barbeque.

The school has activities planned for the entire weekend, but at least one parent's favorite was Friday night's midnight yell class. Father Hayward Sparks even demonstrated some moves he learned.

Parents weekend wraps up Sunday with student awards and performances by the freshmen drill team, the Ross Volunteers, and the Corps of Cadets.
