Texas A&M will once again open its campus to an estimated 10,000 prospective students and parents during the university’s annual “Aggieland Saturday” Feb. 19.
The popular campus-wide open house is held each year to help prospective students and their families learn more about the opportunities available at Texas A&M.
Sponsored by the Office of Admissions and Records, “Aggieland Saturday” is open to all prospective students, including both high school students and transfer students.
While they are on campus for the day visitors can meet current students, tour the residence halls, visit libraries and computer labs and generally get a better concept about what Texas A&M has to offer. They also can learn more about its 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.
University officials say “Aggieland Saturday” is open to prospective students, former students, their families and anyone wishing to learn more about Texas A&M.
“Aggieland Saturday” activities are free except for meals and parking.
