We are excited that you are interested in learning more about the Aggie Men’s Club, and we hope that this website is informative and helpful. It is quite plausible that you are wondering what makes AMC a unique group, given the sheer quantity of social and service organizations available to students on Texas A&M’s campus. The answer to that question is most obviously identified through interactions with the active members of AMC. We strongly encourage you to reach out to any of these men, including myself, to gain a better understanding of the values and purpose of the Aggie Men’s Club. Each member has a unique perspective and has attained something different from their time in AMC, but a few of our basic, guiding principles are outlined below.
As the purpose of AMC states, “We commit ourselves to the full spiritual, emotional, and physical development of each member and shall maintain an environment which is conducive to this individual growth.” We have had men belong and contribute to this group from all different backgrounds and at various stages of their own personal lives. This is an attribute that we are collectively proud of, as each member strives to give back to Texas A&M University, as well as each other. We recognize the benefits of diverse personal stories, diverse interests, and diverse ways of serving our university and community. Our unique traditions allow for each member of AMC to form a genuine, personal relationship with each other in an environment that cultivates lasting friendships and a common love for Texas A&M.
As Aggies, service is at the very core of our organization. Our primary service activity involves teaming up with another student organization to co-host a 5K run, known as GLOW. We hold the 5K on campus to help raise money for Building a Future, our philanthropy. Building a Future is an organization based in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, dedicated to meeting the community’s needs. In addition to this philanthropy event, AMC completes multiple service projects each semester, and is involved at Still Creek Boys Ranch on a weekly basis. We also enjoy social events such as crush parties, date parties, and an annual Formal every Fall.
Significant to both our mission and the personal convictions of many of our members, AMC seeks to be a group that glorifies God and allows its members, as well as those they interact with, to grow closer to Him. Far from perfect men, we rest assured in the love and grace of our perfect Creator and attempt to keep Him at the center of all that we do as an organization. While we are accepting of all men for who they are, we believe it is worthwhile to encourage every individual to become a better Aggie and ultimately, a more faithful man of God.
If you have any questions at all, or are interested in hearing more about our organization, please come to one of our informationals this fall or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you for your time, and I hope to see you at Selections.
Thanks and Gig’em,
