About Aggie Transition Camps

     

 

What is Aggie Transition Camps?

Aggie Transition Camps (ATC) is the umbrella organization that coordinates and runs Howdy Camp in the early Spring and Transfer Camp (T-Camp) in the Fall. ATC is an experience designed for transfer students, but is also welcome for incoming freshmen. At camp, we seek to create a fun and open atmosphere, in which new students will be welcomed into the Aggie Family. You will be introduced to the many opportunities that exist at Texas A&M such as the long-standing traditions we hold dear and the true meaning of being an Aggie. It is ATC’s main goal that campers leave with a newly ignited Aggie Spirit, and many lasting friendships.

Our mission is to successfully transition new students into the Aggie family. We achieve our mission through excellence in five our core values, which the five point star on our logo represents. They are…

 

Commitment ● Inclusivity ● Integrity ● Knowledge ● Servant Leadership

 

  1. Commitment – We are committed to our university, organization, and campers.
  2. Inclusivity – We accept everyone as family.
  3. Integrity – We “do the right thing even when no one is watching.”- C.S. Lewis
  4. Knowledge – We understand and effectively articulate various aspects of Texas A&M University.
  5. Servant Leadership – We humbly develop others to serve Texas A&M University and the greater good.

 

What is Howdy Camp?
Howdy Camp welcomes transfer students to Texas A&M before the spring semester every year with the purpose of giving them an opportunity to have fun, build friendships, and learn more about life at Texas A&M. We want to make sure that your transition into the Aggie Family is one filled with memories and purpose. Howdy Camp is a 3-day extended orientation program that takes place at Trinity Pines in Trinity, Texas. Students will ride buses from the Texas A&M campus to Trinity Pines, where we will be bunking in comfortable furnished cabins!

 

    Howdy Camp is led by Texas A&M students who are dedicated and passionate about making the transition process successful for each new Aggie. Each counselor, crew member, and staff member has personal experience with transferring to and being new on campus. This way, they can offer crucial advice about classes, fun things to do in College Station, and any other questions that a new student might have about being an Aggie.
