Every year on April 21st Aggies around the world gather for Muster. It's considered the most solemn tradition that honors all Aggies who have died during the past year. In 2018, Texas A&M has decided to do something different.
For the first time in nearly 100 years, there will be a sunrise roll call for every absent Aggie at the Clayton W. Williams Jr. Alumni Center. It will begin at 6:51 a.m. and will include more than 1,600 names.
Traditionally, Muster only recognizes Aggies who live in the area, but this Sunrise Muster will ensure that the names of every absent Aggie is called. All are welcome to attend. If you cannot attend but would like to be a part of the Muster, it can be streamed live on AggieNetwork.com and will be available for on-demand viewing afterward.
The traditional campus Muster will then occur at 7 p.m. at Reed Arena.
For those who can't make it to Aggieland, there are over 300 Musters taking place around the world. Visit aggienetwork.com/muster to find a ceremony near you.
