We know all Aggies benefit from the academic instruction they are provided through our many outstanding schools and departments. But, for many former students, the memories they hold closest to their hearts are those that took place outside of the classroom.
Increasingly, our former students are looking for ways to celebrate these special experiences by giving back to the areas that gave so much to them. Former residents and resident advisors are making gifts and creating endowments to help those who serve in these important roles today. Explore this page – maybe you’ll find a way to give back that’s meaningful to you!
The Texas A&M University Residential Housing Association (RHA) and the Department of Residence Life are coordinating to offer residence hall students the opportunity to donate a portion of their housing deposit to create a Residence Hall Programming Fund or a Resident Advisor Scholarship. Donated funds will be awarded through RHA Board of Directors to residence hall councils requesting funds for programs and activities. Residence Life will award the RA Scholarship. Your support will be greatly appreciated.
The Leadership Living Learning Community (L3C) and the Department of Residence Life are coordinating to offer residence hall students the opportunity to donate a portion of their housing deposit to maintain activities that have been a staple in the L3C student experience (fall retreat, academic field trips, international dinner, performing arts/plays). In the past, these activities have been offered at no cost to students that participate in the Leadership Living Learning Community and a charitable donation will be placed in an account that will be utilized for these activities in the future. Your support is greatly appreciated.
The Department of Residence Life invites On-Campus Aggies to join in supporting the legacy of Ron Sasse, retired Director of Residence Life, by donating a portion of their housing deposit (or other funds). Ron was involved with enhancing the success of on-campus students for over 33 years and the Sasse Endowment will continue his efforts by supporting Texas A&M University, College Station students who live on-campus. With the rising costs of higher education and the scarcity of resources available to support students, the intent of the Sasse Endowment is to create a source of perpetual funding for On-Campus Aggies, so that students can remain in campus housing as long as they choose and enjoy the rich, value-added experience of the on-campus community at Texas A&M. Your gift will make a difference. The earnings from the endowment will generate scholarship/rent support for Aggie students living on-campus.
We are currently working on several commemoration opportunities. As plans are finalized, information will be posted here. If you would like to get “up to the minute” information, please email Dr. Carol Binzer to be added to the distribution list.
