“One day. One place. Aggieland” is the theme for this year’s Aggieland Saturday, set for Feb. 18. On that day, Texas A&M University will open its campus to an estimated 10,000 prospective students and parents during the annual campus-wide open house.
The event offers all interested students and their families an opportunity to meet current students, tour campus residence halls, visit libraries and computer labs and see what opportunities Texas A&M has to offer.
Sponsored by the Office of Admissions, Aggieland Saturday is open to all prospective students, including both high school and transfer students.
While on campus for the day, visitors can learn more about the university’s academic colleges and the majors they offer. A variety of group sessions will provide information about admissions, financial aid, student services, student organizations and student traditions, organizers note.
Because Aggieland Saturday is designed to be self-guided so participants can focus on their specific areas of interest, each academic college and several student services offices have planned fun and informational sessions throughout the day, they add.
While registration is not required, officials say it is encouraged to help ensure that visitors are accommodated to the fullest extent possible. Aggieland Saturday activities are free except for meals and parking.
