Aggie parents are arriving in town in droves over the next couple of days in preparation for Texas A&M Parents Weekend 2013 taking place Friday, Saturday and Sunday (April 11-13). This annual tradition has long since been a favorite at the university since it began in 1919.


Organized by 40 students on the Parents Weekend Committee, this is a unique time for students to show their parents appreciation and share what life is like in Aggieland. Many student groups plan special events for members to bring their parents to that help show what their organization is all about and give parents an opportunity to offer their support. A full schedule of festivities is planned for the influx of parents that will be in town this weekend to visit their favorite Aggie.


One of the most popular events of the weekend will be the Maroon & White game, Saturday at 2:00pm, on Kyle field where the Texas A&M football team will vs. one another for a lively fun game to get those Aggie spirit juices flowing. Ross Volunteer Company and The Fish Drill Team will also be performing during half-time.

Several of the University’s departments will be holding open houses Saturday morning to exhibit the facilities for study and students’ premiere work. Awards ceremonies will also be honoring students from different areas of the university and their outstanding accomplishments.
