GIVING TO RESIDENCE LIFE
The Department of Residence Life strives to keep living on campus an affordable option.
With the costs of living on campus ranging from $1,830-$4,894 per semester (double occupancy), providing scholarships for housing assists students for whom housing is not covered by their scholarship program or other support. Growing these endowments creates support annually and in perpetuity for students to live on campus and build that legacy. You can choose the endowment to support.

It has long been the belief of most Aggies that the real spirit of Texas A&M is ingrained in the student body and the traditions of this great University. Today, because of the support of individuals like you, traditions continue to be part of student life in the residence halls and on campus. [Personalized pavers or benches for the plaza are available.]
Crocker and Moore Halls, built in 1942, and McInnis Hall, built in 1964, came down in July 2011 and we are committed to commemorating them appropriately to live on in Aggie history and tradition. Many former residents have already expressed interest and support for the commemoration. Aggies have long believed that the real spirit of Texas A&M is ingrained in the student body and the traditions of this great University. Today, because of the support of individuals like you, traditions of On Campus Aggies continue to be part of student life in the residence halls and across the campus. You are invited to join the “On Campus Aggies” Fund campaign by participating in the ongoing commemoration of Crocker, Moore and McInnis. Please consider making a contribution to the campaign. [Personalized pavers for the Hullabaloo courtyard approximately where Crocker, Moore and McInnis stood and prints by Benjamin Knox of Crocker, Moore, McInnis and Legett are available and a portion of the profits are returned to the endowment.]
These funds enhance the resources available for on-campus housing communities to provide programs, activities and opportunities for residents to enhance their living experiences. The Residential Housing Association (RHA) Board of Directors (students) is responsible for the allotment of available funds annually to meet the requests of the individual community hall councils.
The Leadership Living Learning Community (L3C) Programming Fund has been established to continue the activities that have been staples of the L3C student experience (fall retreat, academic field trips, international dinner, and performing arts/plays). In the past, these activities have been offered at no cost to the 60-90 freshmen students that participate in the Leadership Living Learning Community each year. This endowment is an effort to continue to provide these value-added experiences with the support of past participants.

Endowments Supporting Students Living On Campus
This endowment supports an On-Campus Aggie serving as a Resident Adviser with a scholarship. Resident Advisors do not receive room or board as part of their compensation, but rather are paid hourly wages. So, scholarship support helps these students gain valuable experience, whatever their field, while serving their peers by helping to make the on-campus experience great.
The Sasse Endowment (established in 2012) funds scholarships for On-Campus Aggies, so that students can remain living on-campus, enjoying the value-added experience of community at Texas A&M. The endowment honors the legacy of Ron Sasse retired Director of Residence Life, who was involved with enhancing the success of on-campus students for over 33 years. The earnings from the endowment generate scholarship/rent support for Aggie students living on-campus.

Through an initial endowment by the namesake at the time of the hall’s opening (1975), Neeley Hall has a scholarship for a resident. Currently, one scholarship is available each semester residents of Neeley Hall. The criteria are: hall participation, involvement in campus activities and academic standing. Students must be in good standing (academic and conduct) and reside in Neeley Hall.
The Jerry Hajek III Endowed Memorial Scholarship has been established by the Family & Friends of Jerry Hajek, III, an honorary resident of Hart Hall on the Texas A&M University campus and a student at the University of Houston at the time of his death (2013). Jerry exemplified all that an Aggie is, and was regularly involved in Hart Hall activities and with Hart Hall residents. These funds are to scholarships to full-time students in good standing, pursuing an undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University who live in Hart Hall during the term of the scholarship, exemplify the altruism and spirit of a Hart Hall resident and student of Texas A&M University, and have a financial need as determined by Scholarships & Financial Aid.
