“The Spirit of Aggieland”

  • “Texas A&M University is the perfect environment for transitioning veterans. It maintains the same tradition and comradery cultivated in the military, while also enabling the individuality and self-discovery needed to succeed beyond academia.”

Mitch Craddock, USN, Management


  • “On top of the vast resources available on campus, veterans will greatly appreciate the power and value of the Aggie Network. Any student veteran will immediately be amazed by the incredibly welcoming and friendly atmosphere that Texas A&M University cultivates.”

Joshua McPhail, USN, Anthropology


  • “Texas A&M instills the family/brotherhood values in all of its students. It makes me feel like I’m part of something bigger than me.  That’s the same feeling I get from the military.”

CPT Rebecca K. Lesemann, USA, Masters Public Service & Administration


  • “Texas A&M is a once in a lifetime experience. As a veteran that experience is elevated that much more.  The sense of selfless service that we’ve all had instilled in us through our military service is also exemplified by the University where not only A&M serves it’s veterans but student veterans serve student veterans.”

Brett Blackburn, USN, Sociology


  • “The same familiar core beliefs veterans are accustomed to within the military are alive and well at Texas A&M University. The values of excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect and selfless service are ingrained in every inch of the institution and the student body. This makes for an undeniable difference in the atmosphere at Texas A&M University compared to any other higher education institution.”
