Signature campus events that include the StuAct Block Party, Rec-A-Palooza, Party on the Plaza and the class of 2022 photo on Kyle Field among many others will help connect Aggies to a wide array of activities, organizations and important information to jumpstart their year in Aggieland.

Formerly known as Gig ‘Em Week, the tradition takes place in the days before classes begin at Texas A&M University each fall semester. Howdy Week has been produced by the Texas A&M Office of New Student & Family Programs since its inception in 2000.
