Aggieland is the best ❤️

1. Maroon automatically becomes your new favorite color and takes up the majority of your closet space.

3. And no other dog in the world is quite as gorgeous as Reveille, our mascot and highest ranking officer in the corp of cadets.

4. Your fall weekends now consist of tailgates and football games that you, under no circumstances, will sit down during.

5. And if you didn’t know how to country dance before, you do now.

Between the date parties, Fish Camp line dances and Harry’s on a Thursday you are bound to become an expert.

6. You forget that booing used to be a thing for you before you were taught the Aggie version of hissing: the “horse laugh”.

7. Forgetting that it’s not normal to be surrounded by Corp members 24/7.

After a while you just get used to seeing your uniformed friends marching and chanting on the quad.

9. You anticipate nothing more than the day you get your Aggie Ring.

Congrats & #GigEm to the 4,300+ #Aggies receiving their Aggie Rings today! Whoop! 👍💍 #AggieRing #tamu #aggieland

10. And it’s all about yell leaders.

These five men in janitorial uniforms can hold the attention of 50,000+ person crowds.

Aaaaaa! Gig 'em, Aggies! 👍 #BTHOprairieview #12thMan #tamu

11. Your most used phrases are “Whoop”, “Gig ’em” and “Redass”.

Out of all the odd Aggie habits you’ve acquired, your speech is by far the most affected.

12. Offering money to a statue in the hope it’ll help you pass your finals.

Please Sully work your magic 🙏

13. Chugging 60 ounces of warm, flat beer is the only way to christen your new Aggie Ring.

While nobody really ~wants~ to do it, you want to be as redass as possible.

14. Never remembering the pass back for yells but always yelling as loud as you can.

Who actually knows what all the hand signs mean? But you still pass it back and yell your heart out.

Let's have a Fightin' Texas Aggie yell practice! 👍 #TAMUtakeover

15. And no matter what, you proudly hump it wherever you are.

Football game? Campus tour? Intramurals? Any time is an appropriate time to hump it.
