Texas A&M’s biggest annual campus-wide open house, Aggieland Saturday, is set for Feb. 10, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Prospective students, former students, school groups and anyone interested in learning more about Texas A&M are welcome to attend. The event is free but registration is required. Attendees choose from more than 200 information sessions, facility tours, performances and demonstrations at this all-inclusive program.

New this year is a kick-off session featuring Texas A&M President Mark A. Welsh III, Student Body President Andrew Applewhite and the Yell Leaders. Attendees can stay in Rudder Auditorium or check out sessions across campus to learn about the admissions process, housing, financial aid and scholarship opportunities. Hundreds of staff, faculty and students volunteer for Aggieland Saturday to ensure visitors can interact with current students, have their questions easily answered and see all that Texas A&M has to offer in one day.
