Softly Call the Muster...

Real Estate Agent with Cortiers Real Estate
This evening, Aggies around the world will gather to remember the fallen. Here in College Station, the annual Muster Ceremony and Roll Call for the Absent will take place at Reed Arena at 7:00pm.

In essence the Muster ceremony is a time for Aggies to get together to not only mourn for those we've lost, but to look to the future we have together.

The Campus Muster honors the following Aggies who, at the time of their passing, were either:

  • Students currently enrolled at Texas A&M University
  • Former students residing in Brazos County
  • Members of the 50-Year Reunion Class of 1961
  • Former students who have an immediate family member* that is currently enrolled at Texas A&M University
  • Former Students who have immediate family members* living in Brazos County
  • Former students who lost their lives while deployed serving on active military duty within the past year
  • Texas A&M University faculty and staff of long tenure
