All former Texas A&M University students will assemble on Tuesday, April 21st, for the annual "Texas Aggie Muster". This event honors all Texas Aggies who have passed away during the past year.

Various Muster activities, including dinner and a message from Bishop Sis, will begin at 6:30 at First Baptist Church. All former and current students, their families, and friends of Texas A&M are invited to attend.

The Texas Aggie Muster tradition, which spans more than a century, will be observed in more than 300 locations around the world. These Muster gatherings are held in many unique places, ranging from battleships and foxholes during World War II to ballrooms and steak houses today.

Over the years, Aggie Muster has grown to be one of Texas A&M's most revered traditions. Muster honors the memories of A&M Men & Women whose deaths prevent them from answering the Roll Call at this year's Muster. The Roll Call is a roster compiled of all former and current students who have died over the past year. As each name is called, a friend or family member will answer "Here", symbolizing that their memory lives on in the hearts of Aggies everywhere. Muster is more than just a ceremony; it is also an annual way for Aggies to renew the loyalty and unity which constitute the foundation of their friendship for each other as well as their love and devotion for their school.
