Sports facilities

The Spring Football Game will serve as a preview for the Fightin’ Texas Aggies’ second season in the redeveloped Kyle Field. And the stadium is in the spotlight for another reason: Kyle Field is one of five sports facilities nationwide and one of only two collegiate sites nominated as Sports Facility of the Year by the Sports Business Journal and Sports Business Daily.

An important part of the college experience happens outside of the classroom, and Texas A&M has no shortage of involvement opportunities, whether they be focused on politics, religion, service, leadership, or academics. Look through our ever-growing list of organizations, check out fraternity and sorority opportunities, and even catch a glimpse of how you can be a “voice of the students” for the more politically-minded.
