Just like how my dad became the person that he is today because of his Atenean education, he wanted the same for me. I have been in Ateneo since prep, and have continued in this institution for over fourteen years. Without consciously noticing, I was being shaped in terms of the way I think and the morals and principles that I have.

The Aggie spirit is what differentiates Texas A&M from any other university. Here is where strong connections are made, and bonds formed with someone unknown. Here is where moments take place that change your life forever. The Aggie Spirit is the energy of every tradition.
