About the Community

Terry Scholars recipients with a portrait of the donorsAll selected Freshman Terry Scholars will live together as part of the Terry Living Learning Community and be in the success program called ASPIRE (Aggie Scholars Promoting Incentive, Resources, and Encouragement). The success program operates on a mentor platform consisting of a group of upper-class scholarship recipients who volunteer time to assist scholarship freshmen “learn the ropes” of college life.

Eligibility Requirements

To participate in the Terry Scholars (ASPIRE), students must:

  1. Be selected by the Terry Foundation as a Terry Scholar.

Program Components

Each freshman will be assigned to an individual mentor and a small community including other freshmen and mentors. Each small community has an Exec Team member. Both mentors and the Exec Team member are there to help the Terry Scholar freshmen to adjust to college.
In addition to the UGST class, there will be social events, intramural sports, community service, and networking with Aggies in the B/CS community.
Fall Semester: UGST 181



During a specific period of time, students selected for this program will be able to choose a roommate(s) from other students selected for the same Living Learning Community. Students may post profiles within myHousing Portal and view responses by other students to their roommate questionnaire (i.e., sleep schedule, noise, cleanliness, etc.).  Following this specific time period, students will be assigned a room with their requested roommate within the block of rooms designated for the Living Learning Community.
