Student stories carry the power to change, challenge, and encourage us. The Texas A&M community is a united but diverse group of individuals-each with unique characteristics and life experiences. This digital campaign aims to celebrate our diversity and embrace our common core values. My Aggie Story exists for students to share about how their Texas A&M experience has impacted them. This project believes that Aggies share more than core values and telling stories can open doors to dialogue, connectivity, and inclusivity. We invite Texas A&M students to partner with us by sharing a story idea, submitting a creative digital audio/visual piece, or nominating a classmate who has a compelling tale or experience.

Senator Matthew Gaines passionately and unflaggingly supported the forward movement that established the first public school system for all Texans. The first African-American state senator from Washington County, he was instrumental in the 12th Texas Legislature’s passage of Senate Bill 276, which created the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas under the Land-Grant College Act of 1862, also known as the Morrill Act.
Sense of belonging, at its most basic level, is the feeling of being a part of something big or small. When students come to a university it can always be a hard transition. Many students feel especially alienated at such a large university and this can contribute to their sense of not belonging at Texas A&M. The We Belong campaign seeks to stimulate fellowship between all aggies no matter their differences. We at Texas A&M are all a part of one body, one mission - Everyone belongs here at TAMU.
