Fun Facts

  • Texas A&M University -- College Station, Virginia Tech, and North Georgia College & State University are the only three public schools to have a Corps of Cadets.
  • 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 . . .
