Fun Facts

  • Texas A&M University -- College Station students put a penny at the foot of the Sul Ross statue on campus for good luck on their next exam. Legend has it this practice started because a former college president would refuse payment for his tutoring services--except for a single penny.
  • During the famed Texas A&M University -- College Station Midnight Yell pep rally, students kiss during a period when the lights are turned off. If students don't have a date, they "flick their Bic (a lighter)" to signal other singles so they might too find a kissing partner . . .
  • Should a Texas A&M University -- College Station student pass away, the school honors them with a beautiful, solemn Silver Taps ceremony, which includes a special rendition of Taps played to the North, South, and West but not to the East, as the sun will never rise on that Aggie's life again.
  • The Big Event, Texas A&M University -- College Station's annual day of service, is the largest single-day event of its kind, with 20,000+ students pitching in to help and thank the surrounding community.
  • Texas A&M University -- College Station's tradition of the Twelfth Man dates back to 1922, when former football player E. King Gill stood at the ready to help his teammates in their game against Centre College.
  • Texas A&M University -- College Station's Twelfth Man tradition was born in 1922, when injuries left the Aggies scrambling for players. The football coach called a former member from the stands and had him get ready to play. He was never needed, but when the game ended (which A&M won, BTW), he was the only man left standing on the sidelines.
