Welcome to Aggieland – Texas A&M University

October 17, 2019 19 By Stanley Isaacs


There is a place, where tradition is a way
of life, character is stitched into the local fabric,
and leaders are a natural resource. It’s a place where the future is knocking
at the door. But the past always has a seat at the table.
Here, everyone’s glass is half-full, and cynicism is at a permanent leave of absence.
It’s where fish learn to swim, elephants never forget,
and a horse can carry someone all the way to a Nobel prize.
Every men or women can make a difference here, especially the 12th one,
and you’re as likely to get a statue for a selfless act as you are
for a heroic one. The Greater Good is a required course,
and a helping hand is a required gesture, this is Aggieland, where optimism is an alternative
energy source, and acts of integrity are on everyone’s to-do
list. History is made everyday and remembered every
year, and adversity isn’t just a fashionable term,
it’s a common threat, it’s a place where pushing ideas forward,
doesn’t mean pushing ideas aside. Welcome to Aggieland.
Enjoy your stay.
